The Yin-Yang of Burrito Giving (How to change your acidic headspace & find positivity.)

Hubs brought me a breakfast burrito this morning.

What a good guy. ❤️❤️❤️

I take back all the bad things I’ve ever said about him. 😉

haha – only kidding –

But he really is a good guy and he does things for me all the time.

Just like I do things for him. We’re partners in every sense of the word.

As I sit here at my desk with a happy full tummy (thanks Hubby) I scroll through my news feeds and daily headlines and notice so much negativity about men, men in positions of power, and men in politics doing absolutely horrible things or being accused of atrocious behavior (toward women mostly) and I think to myself, wow… *I need a good cry now* but then I remember that

~ There are more good guys on this planet than there aren’t. ~

With all the negativity floating around in the media and social media about men I choose to focus on the positive because

I believe women and men are equals. We’re not the same in some respects (obviously – his anatomy is different *cough* penis *cough-cough*) but…

Hubs and I choose to be together. Because we’re better together.

Life is about balance.  – Balance is actually one of the universal laws – and that translates to

Male~Female * Yin~Yang * Positive~Negative * Up~down * Chocolate~Salad

Let me add in here that I am NO WAY saying there isn’t a problem with our male dominated society. There are a ton of problems—and there isn’t a good balance between women and men in our current modern civilization. But does Man Shaming really help anything? And… If the tides were turned and all the headlines were focused on terrible women doing and saying terrible things, I would still write these same thoughts and say: There are more good women on this planet than there aren’t.

So for today, I remind myself of this:

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi

What does that even mean?

Well… energetically speaking:

If you focus on the negative all the time, then that becomes your reality. Your energy will attract similar energies.

So I ask myself: Are my thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors helping make the changes I want to see in my world?

Am I focusing on too many negatives and forgetting all the positivity and love in my life? Because if I’m being a sourpus, negative, grumpy crab cake more often then I’m not, then I’ve officially become part of the problem…. (Like energies attract, remember?)

Umm…

That’s now how I want to live.

But I can’t just live with my head in the sand (all the time) – hmm – or can I?  I’ve unplugged and distanced myself from all the negativity around me many times. It actually does me a lot of good, but I eventually get sucked back into the frenzied mess we call modern life.

And being in an acidic headspace is emotionally draining and depressing. And guess what?  If I’m emotionally drained and depressed then I will attract more of that energy to myself.

– Which has dire consequences on my physical well-being. Because…. in case you didn’t know or have forgotten.  The mind~body~soul are one. They are not separate parts of a whole. We are whole beings not hole beings.

There is no separation between mind and body. <– If you’ve never heard that before, put it on repeat inside your head until the truth of it sinks in. –> There is no separation between mind and body.

So please take care of yourself on all levels. Mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, and intuitive. Do it for yourself and do it for the higher good of all.

Changing the world means SHIFTING YOUR PERCEPTION (aka transmutation.)  It’s that easy and that hard. (Sometimes it is SO hard. Ugh.)

Now it’s your turn. Get a burrito from a friend or loved one, then give one.

aka – find your healthy balance. 🙂

This has been your not quite so serious and somewhat silly blog post.

Thanks for being here. I appreciate all my readers.

Cheers & happy reading,

Jody A Kessler

New Release – Divining Elise + New Giveaways!

Hello again,

I have some fantastic news to share with you + book deals and new giveaways.

Divining Elise – the new Granite Lake Romance is available on Amazon!

Early readers are leaving positive reviews about the new book and the Everett brothers are winning the hearts of the readers. I hope you’ll give Divining Elise a chance and let me know what you think of Rob and Elise.

About the Book 

Elise Martinez wished her date with destiny didn’t include being run off the road by the most caring, handsome, and intelligent man she’d ever met.

Moving to Granite Lake to manage a bookstore and coffee shop meant Elise could finally leave her haunted past behind, but being a psychic mom to a deaf child has its benefits and downfalls—and her guarded heart isn’t ready for a new romance.

Rob Everett never imagined giving up corporate law to open a brewery with his brothers in Granite Lake would begin with a car accident and the arrival of a surprise baby.

As if being a single dad and starting a new business weren’t challenging enough, Rob can’t get the beautiful, mysterious, and feisty bookstore manager out of his mind.

Elise quickly captures Rob’s heart—but falling in love is a complicated, sexy, and emotional enterprise.

Mix in a baby, a haunted brewery, craft beer, and a dangerous ex-husband into this recipe of love and Rob and Elise’s future isn’t as easily divined as the fates would have foretold.

**Steamy Contemporary Romance intended for 18+ for mature language and sexual content.

**Full length novel with a happily ever after.

Available on: Amazon

Included in Kindle Unlimited ~ Paperback coming soon.

Read a short excerpt from the novel:

Elise rose from the couch and disappeared from the room. When she returned, she handed a paperback book to Rob.

“I bought this for you.”

He looked at the cover front and back. “I haven’t read this author.”

“He’s one of my favorite sci-fi authors of all time. The new book in the series came out yesterday.” She held up another book for Rob to see. “If you like it then I’ll bring you number two when you’re ready.”

“Are we having a reading date, Elise?”

“Is it too nerdy for you?”

“No. I’ve just never read with someone before,” he said.

“Well then you’re really missing out.”

“I guess I’ve been missing out on a lot of good things. I’ve never had homemade chimichangas or been whupped at the Memory game by a munchkin, either.”

“We’re pretty awesome like that.” Elise sat on the couch next to her son, Colton, who was already fast asleep. “Don’t tell anyone. I don’t want the word to get around about us.”

“I wouldn’t let this secret out. It’s too good to share.”

One eyebrow rose and she opened her book. Rob likewise began reading and to his surprise, he was instantly sucked into the story. After the first few chapters, he realized Maisie needed her nighttime bottle. He set the book on the coffee table to take care of his daughter. The sci-fi author was good. Really good. He could have kept turning pages for hours if he didn’t have responsibilities to take care of. After putting the baby in bed, he lifted Colton from the couch and carried him to the guest room. Elise took care of Colton, then joined him in the living room. The novels were forgotten and all Rob could focus on was Elise.

She took his hand and led him to his bedroom. Sixty-nine became Rob’s new favorite number. Elise was insatiable. Rob couldn’t believe how incredible their chemistry was. There was no ebb to their flow. He only wanted more of her.

Divining Elise is book 4 in the Granite Lake Romance series

Hooray! NEW RELEASE – Reclaiming Melanie – Granite Lake Romance

Hello and welcome back!

I haven’t posted anything on my blog for some time, but I’m thrilled to have you stop by. And I have great news:

I’m happy to announce my NEW RELEASE! – Reclaiming Melanie – Granite Lake Romance book 3 

What’s the new book about?

Single mom Melanie Jamison doesn’t have time for half-naked rescues from Granite Lake by her first love, Braden Keehn — the boy who mysteriously disappeared from her life a decade earlier. Coaching, repurposing furniture, and taking care of her daughter who has severe allergies have her swamped.

But there’s one gargantuan problem with this second chance romance – the sexy alpha game warden doesn’t seem to remember her.

Special Ops Game Warden Braden Keehn’s recent drug investigation leaves him ambushed in the forest and lucky to escape alive. Helping his brother fix and flip an investment property in Granite Lake is just what the doctor ordered for a quiet recuperation.

But there’s one mammoth-sized surprise — Melanie, the girl he loved and lost, lives in the house next door… and he can’t tell her anything about why he’s returned.

Reuniting with Melanie — and falling in love again is easy — but gaining her trust and finding their happy ever after brings frustrating, steamy, and sometimes hilarious challenges Braden never saw coming.

**A steamy, sexy, fun second-chance romance.

Reclaiming Melanie is a stand-alone novel with a happy ever after.

Would you like to read an excerpt?

“Excuse me?”

Melanie spun around and got slapped in the face with her past. Her jaw dropped and she was struck speechless by the man standing next to her car. Instantly self-aware of her hasty hairdo, lack of makeup, and varnish and paint-stained jeans, she found herself capable of doing, well, nothing. Deer-in-the-headlights syndrome much?

Braden Keehn smiled with a bad boy grin he didn’t possess eleven years earlier. His jeans were slung low over his hips and the abundance of ripped muscles beneath his thin cotton V-neck shirt screamed of hours spent working out in the gym. There was no subtlety or humility behind the gleam in his eye, and she somehow knew he’d checked out her package before turning around. The differences about his demeanor from when she knew him before were subtle, yet somehow glaringly obvious. She couldn’t put her finger on it. Melanie shook herself and tried to gain some composure.

“Hi there.” He stuck his hand out.

Her eyebrows rose in surprise, or shock. He doesn’t recognize me. They spent nearly a year together when they were teenagers. How could he not know her? They were each other’s first love.

“I’m your new neighbor.” He dropped his hand as she still hadn’t recovered her ability to function.

He said something else, but she missed it because Sienna’s music switched songs and blared out of the car speakers.

“Sorry. I didn’t hear you.” She gestured toward the open door. “Hold on. Let me turn this down.”

Braden Keehn bought the house next door! Braden Keehn, the boy who broke her heart so completely it sent her on the path that led to teenaged pregnancy, dropping out of college, and a marriage she may not have otherwise chosen…
