Saturday Seven ~ August 15, 2020

Happy Saturday, what have you been up to this week? Here is a rundown of highlights for the week. I hope you find them useful in your life! My goal as a person and a writer are to always Pay-It-Forward, so please let me know how I can help you. YES, YOU!


Enjoy your weekend & this post! Amazing things to come!

What am I Reading? – Battlemind: A Military Legal Thriller by Michael Waddington - A suspected terrorist is tortured to death in a secret Afghanistan prison. A low-ranking guard is the military’s top suspect.


Army JAG lawyer Captain Max O’Donnell isn’t so sure. Max is 90 days away from ending his tour of duty, and the last thing he needs is to take on an un-winnable case. But no matter how jaded and burned out he has become; he still believes justice is worth fighting for.


Digging deeper into the case, Max unearths a shadowy alliance between the prosecution, led by Colonel Covington Paine, and a team of faceless CIA spooks. Paine will stop at nothing to win, and he’s willing to crush anyone who gets in his way - including Max O’Donnell.


With his client’s life on the line and his military career hanging in the balance, Max must wage war in the courtroom and seize victory the only way he knows how.


What am I Listening to? –  
How to Stop Feeling like Sh*t by Andrea Owen - 'Fearlessly tells it like it is, offering its readers no-nonsense and insightful advice to help them get over their crap and wake up to their own brilliance.' - Jen Sincero, bestselling author of You Are A Badass

It's time to stop self-sabotaging and start living your best life.

How to Stop Feeling Like Sh*t is a straight-shooting approach to self-improvement for women, one that offers no-crap truth-telling about the most common self-destructive behaviors women tend to engage in.

From listening to the imposter complex and bitchy inner critic to catastrophizing and people-pleasing, Andrea Owen--a nationally sought-after life coach-- crystallizes what's behind these invisible, undermining habits. With each chapter, she offers practical advice and kicks women's gears out of autopilot and empowers them to create happier, more fulfilling lives.

Powerfully on-the-mark, the chapters are short and digestible, nicely bypassing weighty examinations in favor of punch-points of awareness.

How could I not, when Jen recommends the book? OMG, I have totally drunk the Kool-Aid!

 

What Quote am I Pondering? – “Love yourself like you're the only one there is.” - Jen Sincero



 

What am I Researching? –  The Christian book world. I have a potential client who has written a published a book for kids 11-17 called A Treehouse in Jericho. Interesting piece of the publishing pie. Stay tuned!




Yummy Meal of the Week – Cheesy Jambalaya with Sweet Italian Sausage – This is a cheat but yummy. Zatarain’s Cheesy Jambalaya add sausage and I roasted some mini peppers. So, Yum!



 

What did I Learn? – Anger is a powerful motivator. I am the most unfiltered when angry. I also feel the freest, which in itself is scary as I am not normally an angry person. When fueled with rage, I am 100% explosive. A ticking bomb waiting to explode on the person or thing that acts as a trigger.


Anger is not always a bad thing. Anger, whether resentment or irritation is a symptom of a bigger problem. Recognizing the symptom is the first step in working through the problem to resolution.


The part I am struggling to reconcile is the freedom from anger. The mindset of being so angry I do not care what anyone thinks. Oh, how to live like this every day without the angry part?

What am I Watching? – Buffy the Vampire Slayer on Hulu (knew that was coming) and Umbrella Academy Season 2! This will be the third run of Buffy since it ended in May 2003. Such a great show.

 

I loved season one of the Umbrella Academy and season two dropped on Netflix this past Tuesday. Wahoo! I am only on episode three but fun!!
