New Years Resolutions?

"I'm going to get in shape" or "I'm going to eat right" to "yup, this year I'll be sexy!" How many people have said that at the new year, I will focus on a better body, make healthier food choices and so on? My question is, why wait if it is something that you're serious about?

Many people wait for a Monday, the weekend or the new year to do something good. If you know what you want, then go for it! Why wait to tell someone you love them? Why wait to work-out? Why wait to eat that salad and put down that cheese burger? Why wait to work on your bad language? Why wait to fix a broken relationship family/friend/or love? Why wait to love yourself?Waiting will only aid to the existing issue of procrastination.

I haven't made a new years resolution, heck, I haven't made one since I was in High School. For me, I discovered that waiting only leads to forgetting then leads to self hatred at some point and disappointment. Let's be honest, no one has time for that.Let's get real, new years resolutions can be stressful! So instead of focusing on having one, focus on all that you have accomplished in 2015.

For Me:

I moved from Alaska to Texas, put out another novel, got into the best shape of my life, grew closer to God, got baptized, went on a solo trip, dated outside my race for once, went on a date BY MYSELF, built up my self confidence, loved and lost, laughed and cried, learned to cook gourmet meals, started a new book series to read AND started a new one to write :) , learned to flirt, put all those years of Spanish and French class to use, and lastly, fell in love with what God created....ME.

I didn't go into this year with a new years resolution, no expectations of false reality instead I just did it, on the day I was thinking it and never stopped. Just try it, don't wait, go get what you want.

Mackenzi Heyman

MACKENZI HEYMAN is from College Station but now lives in Los Angeles. After meeting an amazing woman Nikki Petterson, Mackenzis' family took a huge leap of faith and moved to Los Angeles. She has a constant gig at Republic of Pie in LA, where I first saw her sing live! Not only was she bubbly, sarcastic, cleaver, stylish and sweet; BUT she also has a voice to match. For about 20 minutes I was drawn into her voice, and I couldn't look away or be bothered with conversation.

Heyman's new single CIGARETTES is out NOW! A great song in which its title is just the beginning of something amazing! I suggest you download it and get lost in the words and musical creativity that is Mackenzi Heyman.  I am  SO honored to have her in the studio to debut her new song, as well as singing some amazing covers! Take a listen to her interview on Candy 95 below! Also check out the links to her social media profiles.

This is Why...

I like to think that God created my blood in the form of literature. With every book I read, every poem and novel I write my heart beats wildly. When I'm challenged in my school work to read mass amounts of material, material that is maybe 30 pages long per article; I get excited. The thought of coming across words that I would never say or use, the rush of learning something educational and not fictional, the idea that I will find a new word of the day to incorporate throughout my day.

Yeah, It's the little things...

People try to shop for me, they always ask "what do you want?" If you truly knew me, listened or paid attention you would know the answer. Something that has to do with reading or writing and I will be forever grateful. One year, someone bought me a gift card to B&N, that same year a guy bought me a really expensive necklace. The necklace was nice and I appreciated it, came in that beautiful teal box. However, for an intellect the fuel to feed my brain... that B&N gift card touched me in places, made my heart beat, made everything tingle in ways a necklace could not.

Why? Because to get to me, you have to understand the love I have for my gift from God. To get to me you have to understand the joy that comes from cracking open a book. The sensation that rushes through my fingers to my arms and to my heart, to only be released throughout my body as I turn the pages. That orgasmic climax of "the new", the educated, the words, the journeys of a different world created by wonderful artists who creates beautifully written masterpieces. I love books, I love reading, I love the feeling it brings.

 I pray that one day, my words, my novels and poems will touch someone the way it touches me... That's why.
