Release with Review:: Trust the Push

20 March

Title: Trust the Push
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: March 19, 2019


I’m making strides in the world of dirt late model racing.  With back to back championships under my belt, I’m determined to win a third and be the youngest driver in history to do so.  I’m going to make it happen my career is my focus.  That is until the ultimate distraction in the form of a redheaded bombshell drops into my life.

I know nothing about racing, but when my boss comes to me with a special assignment, I take it.  Now, here I am traveling from city to city engrossed in this new world.  I never would have dreamed that this project would lead me to new friendships and ultimately finding love.

We made a deal, our time together would expire, and we would part ways.  The only problem with that is I’m not so sure that’s what I want anymore. She’s pushing at my walls, and I’m trusting her, letting them fall.

It’s a shame we put an end date on our time together.  I knew I would fall for him, but I never dreamed that those feelings would run this deep.  The plan was to walk away, that’s what we agreed to, it’s just going to be harder than I thought.  I need a new plan one that helps me move on without him.


On my goodness, this one is a great story. It has a wonderfully stubborn woman, Aubree, who knows what she wants and needs in life. I loved her fight and the fact that she didn't bow down. Blaine is my type of bad boy, the type that is really a marshmallow under all that toughness. I loved their group of people in their circle and the friendships built. This story flowed so well I read it quickly and was left with a happy heart.

I Like to Write:: Competition

13 March

When does the competition end? Are you a competitive person? I am not so much. I like the fun of it. I don't need to win. I don't even need to participate maybe just watch. I know very competitive people. I know those that winning is everything. I know that the competition though must end sometime. Some people just don't turn it off. It's exhausting to always be on alert. 
To be competitive in sports or other things will be looked at a good time. Should be competitive when we are at home? If someone cleans more or does the laundry more or maybe just understands the kids so they do that, should the other person one up that person? Should the person who thinks they did a really good job, be made to feel inadequate because someone else can do it a little faster, cleaner, or better? It's just been circling in my head. Do people really make others feel like they can't do anything right? Yep. It happens. It breaks my heart when I hear about it. 
So maybe instead of criticizing so harshly or going behind that person to fix what they didn't do right in your eyes, maybe....just maybe encourage them in some way. I have no clue how you would do that because I am not in your shoes, but I do know that encouraging someone or telling someone they were helpful can make their day.

I Like to Write:: Certain Phrases In Life

08 March
Are there certain phrases that just irk you? I have a few, the most I hear though is 'It must be nice to be government'. Why is it so nice to be government? I have no clue. We really don't get much more than the private sector. We don't have long or short term disability, no maternity leave, you get cancer---you have no time once you hit zero which means your premiums won't be paid. Yea it's sooo nice to be government.
I think the biggest issue is money and leave. I have worked very hard for my position. When I am in my chair, I work very hard to complete my work. Most days I leave mentally exhausted with a headache. When I do brag about a perk, that phrase is thrown up quickly in my face though. Why? I don't understand. Is it jealousy? Why would someone be jealous of a job? We all work. We all do what we love. If you are doing what you love and aren't weeping in some of the benefits I get, then why would you be scornful of that? I think there are times when we all think man that would be nice. I can honestly say I have worked every hard to move up through the years of my career to make sure that I do have the nice things. I wasn't given this job, I wasn't favored, and I certainly am paying back the student loans for my education.
I have always heard this phrase but especially since the furlough this year it has really cut right through me. The government is such an ugly subject, why? I don't know I am proud of our government, we could be in a 3rd world country with no clothes on our back and being told what to do and when to do it. I am just rambling but truth be told this phrase and a few others really make my hair stand.

When I hear this phrase especially out of the mouth of family and friends I begin to wonder if they are willing to say that to my face, what do they say behind my back? Are we really as close as I would like to believe. Are we really respecting each other? Are we really praying for each other? Are we really happy for each others successes? Or are we always trying to one up each other and don't even realize it. Are we always trying to be able to do better than the other so we can say she/he doesn't have this or that and I do. I don't like that. We at bless with a healthy family. We are blessed with a roof over our head. I am blessed with a man that is my best friend and partner in all things.
I've gotten to the point where I don't share great things with people. If I get a raise or an opportunity to do somethin wonderful at work. I share with my husband and friends that work in my field. I share with those that understand. I have been holding back while thinking why I am holding back my hard work. Well because I would hate to offend someone who stays at that dead end job or someone that won't go back to school to learn a trade, or someone who  would rather complain than do something to help them move forward in the job.
So I am going to enjoy my snow days because my job would rather have me safe at home than dead on my way to work. I am going to enjoy my pay because honestly in the realm of things according to others I should be getting paid more with the amount of work that is required of us. I am going to enjoy the amount of leave I accumulate because of my time served. I am going to enjoy that I can take care of my family. I am going to enjoy that I work for a company that cares about my well being. I am going to enjoy the fact that I do not have to choose between work and family, my work always wants me to choose family. I am going to enjoy having supervisors that understand my family dynamic and that I am needed at home sometimes. I am going to enjoy having people in my little circle that let me vent when people say 'It must be nice to work for the government'. Because it is, it is wonderful to serve my country. It is wonderful to know I am helping make a difference. It is wonderful knowing that I work with 2 large maritime companies and take care of over 20,000 mariners.
