Overcoming Failed Relationships- Positive Wednesdays

Relationships are a necessary part of the human existence. They help us to be well adjusted, they often cause us to feel love, they make us laugh and they give us something to look forward to.  Our lives seem more joyful when we form positive relationships. But what happens when everything goes south? What do you do when you are faced with the reality that a major relationship in your life must end? 

What do you do when a relationship fails?

Often when a relationship fails, it is because of one reason or another. It might be that you or the other person (s) decides to walk away from each another.  In a situation like this there is a period of mourning. We mourn not only when someone dies. We also mourn the absence of a person from our lives without even realizing it. Whether we want to admit it nor not, to loss someone who is close to use is a painful process. It is so painful that we become so closed off that we don’t even realize that we are mourning.

In times like these it is great to remember that people often come into our lives for a season. In that season we grow and change because of their presence. When they leave it is good to always remember the good we have learnt from them and disregard the negatives. Our natural instincts are to try and make up. But just remember that you have done that all we can do to fix the situation and now it is time to pick up the pieces and move on. Sometimes we still, try to make the relationship work because of fear of losing that person. Just remember that it might hurt now to overcome a failed relationship but the pain won’t last forever. Life has a way of healing us.

FREE Book Reviews for Self Published Authors

source
I have observed that there are a number of very talented writers who have opted to publish their own books instead of going the traditional route of being published through a publishing house. I have also noted that these excellent writers often find it challenging to get their book reviewed for one reason or another.

So, starting July 23, I will be accepting self published books for review. Once a book is accepted for review you will receive and email notification. Once, the book review is written it will be published on the following blogs: Lioness Rebirth, New Day Book Reviews and C.S.E.C. English Made Easy. The review will also be shared on Good reads, Amazon, Face book and twitter.

Additionally, I am open to doing blog tours, author interviews and guest post reviews. For further details please read my review policy.

Review Policy 
I am currently open to receiving Advance Reading Copies and Review Copies of e books  from self published authors. My preferred genres are How to books, D.I.Y. Books, with the occasional Romance novel (Historical, Contemporary). This does not, however, mean that we will not consider books from other genres! I love mysteries, historical fiction, and will consider any book with a great synopsis.
I will not accept any book that is linked to: the occult, erotica, zombies, etc.
I cannot promise to agree to every review request, nor can I guarantee a favourable review of books sent to me. I ,however, promise to be fair and honest in my review.  I will consider all queries and review copies sent my way but I regret that I might not able to respond to all email  queries. If you don’t hear from me in a timely fashion please resend your email.

My review copy preference is for e books, followed by print copies as I am located in Jamaica. As such, digital ARCs/review copies will be given precedence over print copies. My preferred format is PDF.

If you are willing and able to ship to my location I will definitely review your book.

In order to contact me with a review query, please sent an email @ lionbiz25@gmail.com 


Positive Wednesdays- P.S. I Love You

When was the last time you sat and wrote a letter or a note to someone you cared about?

For most of us it has been years. In this technological savvy age individual handwritten notes are a rarity.  It is so rare that there are now companies that specialize in creating handwritten notes for individuals and businesses. Why is this? There is something to be said about receiving a hand written note or letter. It brings a smile to your face and warms your heart. It reminds you that somewhere out there someone cares enough to patiently pen a letter or note just for you. In short, in a way it makes you feel valued and special. 

So today I encourage you to sit and write a note for someone near and dear to you.

Here are some free printable positive note sheets that you can write your letter or notes on.
