Book Talk: An Interview with Steven Manchester

A few years back I used to be an avid book reviewer for Indie Authors. I've met a few authors who are so kind and would write their books with so much energy, passion, and love. So much would be poured into their books that I would immediately feel captured.

Steven Manchester is one of my favorite Indie Authors, his books are so thoughtful, heart-warming, and real. He writes general fiction that dives deep into your soul with health struggles, family's love, and emotions. I got a chance to interview Steven for his new upcoming book, Ashes. I've always wanted to be able to ask these particular questions to an author, and I'm honored for it to be Steven.

Read on for the thoughtful musings from the mind of an author, and I encourage you to read every word. It's worth it. Trust me.

If The Wind Still Blows, So Will I

I've gone through many instances in life where a situation is challenging. My yoga routine seems too off and too quick for me to deepen my practice, the asshole on the road honks and flashes for me to go faster, and when 24 hours just isn't enough for a day. The time has come when we have to cope and keep going, even if we want the weekend to get here already.

Time and Effort in Your Daily Do's

Time management. That's one thing the actually stuck from my Managerial courses at uni. I remember writing my first essay on time management and efficiency and used Starbucks as an example since I was hella obsessed with the aura that Starbucks give out. I still am too!

And since the New Year rolled through, I've been trying to keep my breakdowns aside and coolness alive with staying organized. I've been keeping track of my events, to-do's, shopping lists, and keeping my energy up with the help of my PlannersGoogle Keep, and of course, dressing well every morning.

We all get those weeks when we're just too exhausted to even dress well and do our hair, but let me tell you, it's worth it to make an effort. Even if it's just to slap on some lipstick to make you look alive or wear a color that brings out the color of your eyes. It really boosts up your adrenaline and confidence to walk high and tall like nobodies business. You go girl! (or guy!)

A Fabulous and Badass New Year

Happy New Year!

My first week of the New Year started off smooth and with good vibes, so I'm pretty happy about that. Seriously, I woke up on January 1st feeling light and ready for what the year has to offer. Not only because I started the 31 Days of Yoga Revolution, which is so revitalizing by the way, but also because I've realized that we shouldn't sit back and see where the year takes us, but instead to do and find where the year takes us.

A little outfit description, I felt so badass in this. Denim, boots, side braid, and a red lip. Fabulous and Badass. Plus, I felt so light with just my gorgeous wallet. Can we take a moment to appreciate it's simple yet bold feel? Love!

Are You Ready to Give 2017 a Good Whack?

2016 ends in less than a week, we're wrapping up our accounts, ticking off the final things that need to be done, and giving our thanks to all who have made our year. But there is still quite a bit that needs to be done.

December marks a time of reflection and creation of new goals. What better to end the year feeling accomplished for the little things rather than dreary about the unfinished. So, let's do this together. Open up an empty Google Doc file, MS Word file, or go old school with a notebook and pen, and let's get to the finishing line.

So, are you ready to get hit by 2017? or are you ready to give it a good whack?

Meditate Peace

I was reading Gabby Bernstein's book last night; trying to catch up to my Goodreads Reading Challenge. And I got to the chapter where she mentioned Maharashi Maheshi Yogi's prophecy. 

Maharashi theorized that when groups of people meditate together with shared intentions of peace, their alpha brain waves become synchronized. The coherence of brain waves then causes people who are not meditating to receive the same properties in their subconscious minds. – Gabrielle Bernstein, The Universe Has My Back

As I was meditating today, I recalled what Gabby had written and I began to picture that I was with a group of people. We were sitting and meditating peace. I could feel the energy oozing and goosebumps started to grow. I could feel something lit up inside me, no idea what it was but it felt great. I feel like it's one of those spiritual experiences that sort of stick with you, you know?

Keep Your Passion Train Going

The colder it gets, the more I want to stay in bed with a nice cup of hot coco, and binge watch Empire. Alas, the bills and subscriptions must be paid, and the passion train must keep going! Choo Choo!
