IT’S TEMPORARY! – POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING! Have you ever felt so ill you feel like you are dying? That is it a catastrophe and your world is ending! But the truth is you are not dying, you have a virus and you will be better again! You have to think to yourself, this is temporary; it will pass, otherwise, what is the alternative if you don’t?
Every so often I like to share posts between my blogs that may interest my readers of my other blog. This blog post is taken from my www.quirkybooks.wordpress.com blog about writing and my quirky life.
I currently have a virus that has lead to a chest infection. My boss has kindly let me take a day’s holiday this week, along with my two days off, so I can get 3 days of rest! That I need. Of course resting to me, is getting some sleep, but also watching educational videos, writing blog posts, and working out precisely what my future holds and entails, and my destiny – that being, I really do want to create an ebook store full of my own books for your personal and professional development across multiple genres, and also video training courses. All my mind keeps saying to me, is; ‘All I want to do is write’, ‘All I want to do is write’, ‘All I want to do is write”; to the point where it is now making feel ill that I am not doing it enough and not listening as much as I should be to myself. My inner voice is screaming this is what you should be doing right now and forever – so why have I just become in this state? And why don’t I just get on with it?
Because my mind has been considering many options of how to make money online during these past few weeks, in order to provide for my future, as I have to look after myself financially. I have literally been reading up, researching, and attending live webinars and other online training for hours, as I know to make a full-time career out of writing, is one of the toughest roads to ever take; if you are writing from your heart and your own stuff that will also appeal to others! I want to remain true to my authentic, quirky self, while providing books that others need! It can be a dilemma – or is it that I am making it a dilemma?
I keep coming back to my roots of writing because when I think of following in the footsteps of others, buying their programmes, their courses, if it is not to do with writing and the writing I like to do, all my mind keeps saying is – when are you going to have time to write? You can’t not write, to not write actually makes me feel sick now. It’s like I am stretching my writing creativity so thinly by not writing and producing more books when the momentum is there to do it, that it is painful and sore, like a wound. But what to do? As I have 18 Live and fully functional websites to work on and maintain, how can I look after them, design more T-Shirts that I need to design and still keep writing lots of new stuff! Yes, I said new stuff, because the truth is, since publishing my Twitter book and discovering how well it is selling, sometimes with little or no promotion on my part, it means there is a market for the type of books I want to write – or at least in that genre. It is already outselling my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book that I spent 2 and a half years writing. How long do you think it took me to write my Twitter book and publish it to Amazon Kindle? Well, as I already had some of the content from previously teaching it to my Twitter for Recovery students – 27 days!! Yes, I said 27 days! Is that a miracle or what!! It is far less expensive than my redundancy book to buy, so I need to sell a lot more to get close to even one sale of my redundancy book, but the main thing is, I am getting my name out there as a writer, doing something I love and helping a ton of people in the process.
People don’t understand that writing is a part of my soul that I cannot live without! It is my therapy, my love of my life (guinea pigs are too) and the best of me. It’s helped me through the worst of times and if it was in the form of a person, I would be writing; if it were a being of it’s own; I would be a Sandra Bellamy writing being – which is what I actually am! Okay, so I am glad and grateful for a physical body that I have grown to love and care for and I would never want to be dead, but alive forever- yes, I said forever, if I could, I would – particularly if I didn’t age!
So my destiny is to have lots of Kindle books published and some training courses via my Quirky Books sites and Quirky Academy sites, and a fair few of my others too – it’s a huge challenge for me! I have been getting better at writing and publishing on Kindle, and found that sometimes publishing shorter books can be more beneficial than publishing longer books, both for me and the recipient. However, my new ‘Asexual Perspectives, Love, Life and Sex, ACElebration of Diversity’ book, looks like it is going to be huge, as I have interviewed around 40 asexuals across the globe for it, and one person’s answers is 19 pages long! So I still want to publish longer books where there is a need for it, even though it is mega time-consuming, if it’s going to change lives it will be worth it!
I am thinking about doing a follow up Twitter book, because I think there is a need for it! So much writing to do, so little time, and after all that, being quirky, I still want to learn about other stuff! And there is the head-banging moment, when you realise, you need to keep learning stuff too, in order to write more books, leaving less time for writing, but a bigger brain capacity to take in more information to hopefully write more books! I would say it’s a chicken and egg situation, but rather a book and brain situation! I think this has been one of THE longest posts I had written for a long time, especially about writing and my love of it. This blog is where it all started for me, and whatever happens, this blog will run to the end of my time and hopefully stay around even more! The good thing about writing and publishing non-fiction books on Amazon, is that I will continue to help others even when I am no longer in person to do so, and leave a lasting legacy, that makes life so fulfilling, so satisfying, and so worthwhile.
Until next time my friends, thank you for your continued support, I love you all and think you are incredible and amazing!

This is one of my favourite motivational videos of all time!!
Whether you are starting a business, growing friendships, or developing an existing relationship, connection and communication is key! Without it, misunderstanding can occur, rapport is lost and approachability dummed down.
So talk, post, share, be open; friendly; fair and kind; but always be wise that not everyone is like this, or like you!
Pay attention to those that fit like a glove and ensure you don’t become complacent.
Recognise those that support your greatness, and also those who are struggling with their own self-worth.
Master yourself and advise others when necessary.
Ask yourself – Am I being helpful in my communications and connections with others? If not, ask yourself how you can change that.
Aways reflect on your interactions and analyse your own behaviour; as well as that of others.
Keep striving to learn, improve, grow, and ecourage others to do that too.
If something feels wrong then it usually is. Trust your instincts and judgement, and if you have to let someone go from your life; that’s okay.
Be strong, be brave and be YOU!
