Can you Believe I'm so, so Happy?
I really am!
And more importantly, I hope you are, too!
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had some struggles and still do. Like you, I wrestle daily with:
The impact of personal loss of family (fortunately NOT linked to covid-19) but a loss all the same.
Differences of opinions between me and my friends and family on ‘hot stuff’ like the significance of wearing masks, social distancing, or the wisdom of celebrating the Memorial Day holidays by going to one of my favorite beaches---all of which were open this past weekend.
The challenge of maintaining my 2020 commitment to regular exercise in view of ‘shelter in place’ or lack thereof guidelines, that Mediterranean Diet I was so excited about in January as I find myself succumbing to the constant 'pop ups' that showcase calorie laden, scrumptious looking baking recipes, and, making the decision to postpone several of the design changes I planned to make to my house in view of our uncertain economy.
Oh well, the list could go on and on. But I’m fighting the onslaught of negative vibes with a positive, focused mindset. I encourage you to do the same. And by the way, I acknowledge that it’s really NOT easy to focus on ‘being Happy’ these days.
But it’s much, much easier when you sing, dance or think about what it means to ‘BE really Happy’. Singer, Pharrell Williams, a leading force in popular music, proved this point in his song ‘Happy’ (written for the movie Despicable Me) that can still make me smile and want to dance--even as I write this post.
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth Because I'm happy Clap along if you know what happiness is to you Because I'm happy Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do
So today, I’m focusing on my truth—which makes me happy:
I’m thankful for all of you (my readers), my family, friends and my fellow authors and colleagues who support me in my writing career.
I’m thankful for the front-line warriors across this country who support all of us.
I’m thankful for and so excited about the upcoming release of the Feisty Heroines Boxset. I’m really proud to be a part of such an impressive group of authors who have worked diligently to bring this exciting book project to fruition.
I'm pleased to re-introduce the BLUE LADY, aka Angelica Mason (one of my favorite Feisty characters), as she struggles with and through the biggest challenge of her lifetime. Finding herself.
Feisty Heroines Boxset
Déjà Vu on the Seas
(An Angelica Mason Series Short Story)
By Stephany Tullis
'If one could sleep one’s self to death…'
In her latest installment of the Angelica Mason Series, USA Bestselling Author Stephany Tullis takes Angelica Mason to another place and time.
Angelica Mason is known in political circles for her highly effective ‘do it my way or hit the highway’ MO. Not one to be intimidated, she’s never second-guessed herself. Once she’s made up her mind, she perseveres to the finish. No regrets. Until now.
Traumatized by several near-death experiences, including a kidnapping, Angelica returns to her safe place and finds the security she needs in her king size bed. She succumbs to the dense fog that has smothered her spirit. And sleeps.
Frightened when her BFF doesn’t return her phone calls or text messages, Nicole Honeywell makes a surprise visit to check in on her incognito childhood friend. Alarmed by Angelica’s bedridden, bedraggled and semi-comatose condition, she threatens to sound the alarm and contact Angelica’s business partner and parents if she doesn’t get her act together.
Angelica sluggishly acknowledges her friend’s threat. She’s awake long enough to ascertain two things. Something’s seriously wrong. And more importantly, she needs to do something about it. Rather than take the chance that she’ll be bombarded with unwanted visitors making unmeetable demands, she accepts her only alternative. Escape.
Angelica embarks on a journey of a life time; one that is full of unknowns but with her commitment to search and prepare to accept whatever she finds.
Déjà Vu on the Seas is a story of an emotional journey of personal exploration and search for self. It explores a woman’s fear, confusion and healing, asking the question: Which takes more courage—ignoring the fear or staring it in the face?
