When You Love With All Your Heart – Your Journey Has Just Begun! | Quirky Poetry From The Heart With Quirky Books Author Sandra Bellamy


Quirky Books Author Sandra Bellamy

When you love with all your heart,
When you dream with all your soul,
When you find happiness in the smallest of things,
When you decide to let go,
And trust, that things will be okay,
That we will see sunshine,
And happier days.

That this time may be dark,
But it’s never dull,
So we must reach inside,
And refuse to sulk.

We must begin with the end in mind,
To live in the glory and the shine,
For when we look at everything we have achieved,
Normality might have once seemed normal and a breeze,
But we all know normal is a fallacy.

So maybe this is our new normal.
And maybe it’s not,
Life is what you make it,
But this truth you forgot.

So don’t buried your head,
For you are alive,
Wake up in awe,
That you are alive,
Sit back and enjoy,
The small dreams that come to life,
The here and the now,
For time is precious and waits for no one,
In the blink of an eye,
It can be gone,
So take joy to heart,
Let misery go,
For what you reap,
You shall sow.

Reach deep in your heart,
Let love light the way,
Because my dear friend,
If you are reading this,
You have been blessed with another day.

The day is long,
The night is too,
But please keep singing,
The happy song, of YOU!

For darkness may come,
But light will always prevail,
Where there is happiness and joy,
It never fails.

So use what ever tools you can,
Make a wish and seal the plan,
To get your life, heart and joy, back on track,
Believe in yourself,
And make a pact.

For the art of self love,
Of self belief,
Doesn’t come easy,
It’s not like some freebie.

Self love,
Self belief,
It takes work,
To live for you,
To live with joy,
To find your truth,
And not be coy,
It all takes an incredible amount of time,
But what if right here and now, you decide,
To leave the biggest crime,
The crime that tells you to quit, on yourself,
It doesn’t care about your, or your self health.

The person inside who jeopardises you,
Is this biggest enemy of all to you,
So refuse to quit,
Refuse to settle,
Say thank you for sharing,
But I can do better,
I can fight for joy,
For speaking my own truth,
I can fight for self love,
Self worth, and growth.

I can fight for the kid in me,
The parent, the mother, the daddy,
The zing, zing.
I can nourish my soul,
And bring it to life,
I can be my own kid,
My own husband and wife,
Or I can choose to live a life of quirky,
I can choose to be different and throw away the key,
For at the end of the day,
There is no other,
That this beautiful, unique being, I see in the mirror, daily.

I want to tell you to rise,
To lay you soul bare,
To strip back the garbage,
To become self-aware,
I want to tell you to reach inside,
To find the courage not to hide,
Because in the end,
The only price you pay,
Is your heart, soul, and mind, each day.

Self love is amazing,
Self love is kind,
It’s the key to leaving depression behind.
It’s the key to rising more and more,
For taking your dreams and making them soar,
For being your own light amoung the grey,
For living your life, the crazy way,
For being the light in the night,
For being the calm, in your own internal fight,
It’s the thing you need most now in this world,
Now is a time of reflection,
To become that light,
To listen to your inner intuition and let it take flight.

So here’s to the kid in you,
Here’s to the unique blend, that’s called YOU!
Here’s to your goals, ambitions and dreams,
Here’s to your own stars and moonbeams,
Here’s to the things the naysayers said can’t be done,
Here’s to shining your light, your journey has just begun!

 

I hope you enjoyed this poem, if you did, please comment and give it a like and be sure to come back for more.

Dear Writing I’ve Missed You – A Letter To My Love Of My Life – A Writing Poem From My Soul


 

Asexual Perspectives print book
Author Sandra Bellamy With Her Asexual Perspectives Paperback Book

Happy to say that I have an extra Asexual Sex Story for my Asexual Guide To Sex book and all next month my main focus is finishing writing this book. Which will be my second for asexuals.

Writing will always, always, always be the love of my life. I want to write a letter here to my love of my life.

Dear writing I’ve missed you.
I’ve missed you so much, I want to kiss you.
Without you in my life, I feel like I am dying,
And right now I am crying.

I am trying to do the ‘right thing’,
I am trying to do what should bring,
Well you know, the big M thing,
But dear writing you are the only thing,
Academic wise,
That makes me come alive,
You are the one thing,
That never tires,
And the one thing I never, ever despise.

Writing is like setting your soul free,
It’s the ONLY way in my opinion,
You can ever leave a true, lasting legacy,

It’s the only way you can truly change the world,
You can light up another’s life,
And make them see,
That all the truth and power,
Lies within thee.

Dear writing I have missed you,
I truly want to kiss you,
You are my heart and soul,
And without you I am dying inside,
If truth be told.

So what happens when we are not doing what we are suppose to be,
Is our body reacts, involuntary,
It shakes us up and makes us see,
We aren’t fulfilling our true destiny,

God, the universe, the powers that be,
Show you the dangers of not living your destiny,
They give you pain, they induce the worst,
To say what the heck do you think you are doing, Why are you not giving your body what it wants and needs,
And denying it’s thirst.

See you may think writing is just that,
But when you truly listen to your soul,
You know it’s far more than that,
When you deny yourself to use the gift you were born with,
Or you denying it, in favour of another it,
It’s like losing a best friend over and over again,
It’s like agony and then some again.

Your body will go crazy,
Your spirit will feel more lazy,
You heart will pine for something you are denying it,
And all for what?
To conform and fit in?

Maybe this was never your intention,
But maybe subconsciously, that’s what you forgot to mention,
Maybe you need to stop denying your body, heart and mind the truth,
And that is, your writing is living proof,
Of exactly why you were put on this earth,
So please go back to it, and live your full worth.

Go back to the joy that you once new,
And connect with that disconnect,
Your soul and body will thank you.

See you never really left it and me and you know this,
But when you think about it, you body is in a mess,
But it’s nothing you can’t fix.

Because within your body, soul, and mind,
You need to have the courage to know this is my time,
Other things can wait,
But this can’t.

Because you need help,
Others need your help,
And the only way to fix this,
Isn’t by doing what others do,
It’s to look after precious you.

It’s about standing up for what you truly believe in,
For taking a stand and not trying to fit in,
It’s about working hard at what you truly love to do,
It’s about reaching for the stars, the light and the moon,
It’s about getting your best friend back and healing you,
It’s about reaching out to your writing and taking it by the hand and singing Grease Lightening,
It’s about remembering the heart and soul of you,
And that writing is you and at the heart of what you do.

It’s about living your life, fulfilling your own purpose and destiny,
It’s about taking charge of your life and living your truth with passion and vigour,
It’s about being you, Sandra Bellamy the writer,
And loving what you do.

It’s about knowing no other occupation will do,
Because writing is your life, it’s your heart, its about you.

When I say it’s about you, you know it’s designed to help others too.

You went through shit,
And you got through it,
You needed that to happen,
To write about it.

You needed to have lived life,
The rough with the smooth,
Now go ahead again,
And prove them wrong.

Be who you are truly born to be,
Don’t hold back,
Don’t come from a place of want and need,
Don’t come from a place of lack.

For when I think about writing,
There is a joy within my heart,
Like nothing I ever feel again,
Nothing ever comes close to this piece of me,
That’s why I have to fulfil my writing destiny.

I want to thank you God and the powers that be,
For manifesting chaos and pain within me,
Because I know you want me to see the truth,
No one and nothing can heal me, but my own self.

So I am going back to writing more,
To blogging,
And opening up my writing door,
And if I have to leave other plans behind I will,
But I think that maybe, just maybe, it’s been about writing all along,
Because I don’t do a business in which I can’t sell books,
I don’t just do a business and this I overlook,
It’s always in the back of my mind,
How can I help more people, using my writing shine!

But right now more than ever, I need to help me,
Because by helping myself, I will always help others you see,
They will always go hand-in-hand for me,
And that’s why I need to fulfil my writing destiny.

I noticed I just used the word need,
But when I use that word in the context of writing,
It’s a need within my soul,
It’s a thirst within my heart,
And I have been denying it more of late,
To focus on other things and make this wait.

No more will writing wait for me, it’s fighting back in my mind,
And telling me to fulfil my destiny,
It’s longing and it’s missing me,
When all is lost and gone,
Writing will still be with me.

So close the doors and shut your eyes,
Getting back to what you love and come fully back alive.
Go back to living and being beautiful you. Loving truly what you love to do.

Get your writing best friend back,
No longer have this lack,
Go grab it now and end it’s sorrow,
Dance with it in the moonlight,
And no longer will you need to borrow,
Short term happiness,
But you will get that writing friend back and put an end to this madness.

For one perfect month, I want you to focus at least,
On your writing joy,
And having a writing feast,
On getting back to the true love of your life,
Who has always been by your side.

Instead of leaving your writing best friend,
To fend for itself,
And be behind you,
Waiting from afar,
I want you to join hands once again, and live in writing bliss and harmony,
Focusing on your destiny.

Because when all is said and done,
And you look back at your life, and you are almost gone,
You will go with a happiness inside of you,
That you lived your true authentic life,
You did what YOU do,
And your legacy will live on.

 

It’s great to be back with you. Missed blogging and writing so much xx

Stay quirky and write soon

Happy 9 Year Blogging Anniversary To Quirky Books And Published Author Sandra Bellamy At Quirky Books!


9 Year Blogging anniversary

Sometimes you have to be your own cheerleader in life and say congratulations to yourself. Because if you don’t recognise your own achievements and think they are amazing, why should anyone else? Yes, I have been blogging for over 9 years on this Quirky Books blog and in 2017 I finally registered Quirky Books as my own publishing imprint. It was a very proud moment! To have my own publishing company is a dream come true. I used to always want to be traditionally published, but once I realised I can make more money and have more flexibility over the content of my books, as a self-published Author, and that my books truly change peoples’ lives and stop some people from killing themselves, I realised my life purpose is being fulfilled and I am leaving a true lasting legacy for generations to come!

Recently I had a respiratory infection and lost voice (I could only whisper), and could not do any live streaming on either of my www.youtube.com/quirkybooksTV or my www.youtube.com/asexualisemyasexuallife channel. The doctor told me I must rest to get well, she was concerned that my heartbeat was faster than normal and my temperature was higher than normal. So I rested for 7 days straight. I did try to do a bit of writing on day 4 of my 7 days of antibiotics, but started to feel dizzy again, so had to stop it. My first stream was only a few hours ago on my www.youtube.com/asexualisemyasexuallife channel, since getting my voice back. The one thing I am very grateful and thankful for, if I ever lost my voice completely for good, which I would never wish to ever do, as I love talking, educating others, and have a gift for YouTube live streaming, then at least I would still be able to do my main passion and life purpose of writing, which is a huge relief!

So yeah, always live with passion and purpose in your heart and write what you want, like and love, and just be quirky you, as no one does you better xx

Until next time, stay quirky and write soon

10 Days To Go To Creating The Landing Page Of Your Dreams For Life – Don’t Miss Out! Best Life Time Deal For Author Pages!


Drag Dropr Agency Edition

Drag Dropr

Only 10 days to go! This is a once in a LIFE TIME DEAL you don’t want to miss! If you are fed up with trying to customise WordPress Templates and of spending hours learning how to use different themes, you are not alone. And even when you have learnt how to use them, you are somewhat restricted to what they can do. You know what I am saying right? You’re not a coder but you want to have beautifully coded pages, that create the exact layout you want, and to know that what you see in your Dashboard, REALLY is what your customers see on your actual live site. Welcome to Drag Dropr! This Drag Dropr Lifetime Deal was too good to miss that I just had to share it with you, because I didn’t want you to miss out! I have NEVER seen a landing page builder deal that lets you so effortlessly create landing pages in minutes, using drag and drop blocks, which you can copy and paste to any site you want, OR install the Chrome extension on your WordPress site and effortlessly create a landing page for your book, product, or service fast, and push it to said site, at the click off a button, for this insane one-time price of just $99 for life! Or you can buy the personal edition for just $49, which is an absolute steel! Don’t even think about it, just go get it!

I spent more on Thrive Architect plugin and it conflicted with my security plugin and would not accept my email form code, so I was stuffed to be quite frank with you. I bought the Thrive one time deal, but you only get support for a year, and as it was a plugin designed for WordPress, I ended up being stuck with an expensive and awesome looking tool that I just can’t use with my WordFence security plugin. After being hacked, WordFence is a godsend that I don’t want to remove, apparently there is a way around this, or so I just recently read, but it means temporarily stopping my security plugin and allowing my site to be unprotected for a time. But after studying some of Thrive courses, Drag Dropr seems far more simple and easier to use and that I can quickly get what I need to be done, done! I don’t want to be faffing around for a long time. I just want to drag, drop, and go get on with other work! Time is precious and it’s limited, and I thank God Drag Dropr came when it did, because soon I am about to create a campaign for my latest book  and I need to create multiple pages quickly for an accompanying mindblowingly good deal. I also have other projects on the go too, and sorting my pages out for them was a headache too! It also works seamlessly with the membership and course site builder platform I use which is Invanto.

So after reading all about Drag Dropr, and asking the guy who founded it, as a way of helping his own client’s out, a few final questions, along with a member of his team giving me a hands-on, one-to-one demo for free, I reached for my debit card and paid the $99 for the Agency License. I believe if you are going to get a deal, you need to do it in style and get the best deal for the best price. I believe you have invest in yourself and your business for your future, not just right now. You have to think big, to grow big, so that is why I happily got the Agency Deal, because with that you can connect unlimited WordPress sites, and you can also host more pages on Drag Dropr’s own site, than with the Personal Edition. You can stack up to 5 codes of each too, meaning you can buy up to 5 of the same deal. Drag Dropr works seamlessly with multiple CMS platforms using the Chrome extension. I don’t usually use Chrome as my browser but as this deal was too good to miss, because it can solve a lot of my current page building problems and save me time and money, I don’t mind opening up Chrome to build my pages.

After learning about sales funnels and how to REALLY make money online, I started to investigate numerous platforms and page builders. BUT, many landing page builders cost a monthly subscription fee and if you are you are trying to run a successful business, you want to keep costs down and quality up! Drag Dropr appears to be good quality and if you are not satisfied within 30 days, you can get your money back anyway, so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Go check out Drap Dropr now! Before this deal is gone for good! Click this  Drag Dropr link

The information on the sales page gives a good amount of detail about Drag Dropr and the two deals, but if you have any more questions, then open up the chat bubble to the bottom left of the Invanto screen, and the team will be happy to help you. Or you can drop me a comment below and I will try to answer your questions for you. If you want an awesome course building or membership building platform, do check out Invanto itself, as it is amazing, and I feel truly blessed to host my courses and membership sites through them. You don’t have to faff around with checkout plugins, membership plugins, or setting up Woocommerce, and you can kiss goodbye to being hacked when you host your courses and memberships on their site as it stores your stuff on Amazon servers and is high security. You can upload unlimited videos for your courses and memberships sites at no extra cost.

So go check out Drag Dropr deals right now, and get this insane deal, before it’s gone forever! If you want to create awesome Author pages for your books or pages for your sales funnels, you need this deal. I am updating this post on 3rd of October 2019 and there is only 10 days to go get this deal of a lifetime. Please don’t miss out!

Until next time, write soon and stay quirky you.

A Day In The Life Of An Asexual Author! What Does An Author Do With Their Day? #amwriting


Have you ever wondered what a published Author does with their day? What a day in the life of an Author looks like? What it entails? If so, then this video is for you! I specialise in non-fiction books for quirky niches, and have my own publishing imprint called Quirky Books! My speciality is writing books about Asexuality and being Asexual. I am asexual myself and a hugely romantic one at that. Asexuality is a sexual orientation that is the lack of sexual attraction. It’s barely unheard of and deeply misunderstood. I am romantically attracted to guys only, but not sexually.

I am currently working on my second book for asexuals (Asexual Guide To Sex – for those asexuals who are considering trying sex for the first time, and considering all the options as to whether it’s right for them or not), and I did this live stream on my Asexual channel www.youtube.com/asexualisemyasexuallife to explain what I do with my day. I am also currently in the middle of getting my Fibromyalgia Self-help Handbook ready for print – It’s out in Kindle already and I have interest already in my third book for asexuals, which I haven’t yet started. I have a fourth book for asexuals planned too, with more to come.

As if that wasn’t enough, I also have other exciting projects I am working on. I am letting go of some of my domains and websites that I have had for some time, to make way for new and exciting business opportunities which you won’t want to miss!

If you have got any comments or questions about being an Author, let me know in the comments below and I will do my best to help you.

As always, stay quirky and write soon!

21 Reasons Why I Love Being A Writer!


Quote about writing
Writing quote by Sandra Bellamy

Let me know how many of these 21 reasons why I love being a writer, you can relate to, in the comments below!

  1. Your imagination is brought to life!
  2. When writing a fiction book, the characters speak to you and tell you how to write their story! (True or true?)
  3. It’s exciting to see your ideas come to life.
  4. When momentum builds and you can’t stop writing, it’s so euphoric!
  5. I just love the act of writing, it feels like I am in ecstasy when I do it.
  6. Writing feels like a part of my soul I never want to be without, it’s central to my core being.
  7. It stops and prevents boredom.
  8. I feel like my books are my best friends, they know all my secrets, my personal thoughts and feelings, and they don’t judge me; they just let me flow and be me, as I am, in the moment.
  9. My books are my companions on a dark and gloomy day, and also a spark of light, that lightens the way.
  10. Writing is a gift that I am proud to say I have, and it makes me feel amazing!
  11. Writing is my life purpose 100%, it’s the number 1 thing in my life that gives me 100% satisfaction.
  12. Writing changes people’s lives.
  13. Writing a book leaves a lasting legacy, long after you have gone from this earth in the human form you are at present. (Seeing your book in a future life could be a hugely surreal experience if you believe in reincarnation, and a great story in and of itself. I have thought about writing that one myself but as I specialise in mostly non-fiction, I prefer to stick to what I enjoy writing the most, but if you are looking for a writing prompt, then you can grab this one with my compliments!)
  14. I love owning my own publishing imprint of Quirky Books – it was a dream since I started writing this blog over 8 years ago. This means any books published under my own imprint can be ordered in shops and found in some UK libraries, including the British Library, as I have my own ISBN  numbers.
  15. My ASEXUAL PERSPECTIVES: 47 Asexual Stories: LOVE, LIFE and SEX, ACElebration of ASEXUAL DIVERSITY book, is in the British Library, and will go down as part of British Heritage to be used for research for generations to come, I am really proud of this. Especially as everyone thinks they need to have sex in order to have a loving, happy, and healthy relationship, which for asexuals, (those who lack sexual attraction), is simply not true.
  16. Writing makes me feel good, about myself; about my life; and in general I am so much happier when I am writing than when I am not. When I don’t write, it feels like something is missing from my life and my soul is not fulfilled.
  17. Writing feels so good and puts me in a good mood, it makes me feel more like my life is worth living.
  18. Writing is extremely therapeutic, it purges the soul and allows you to get all of your feelings and emotions out in a constructive manner.
  19. Being a writer allows you to be an observer of life like no other. You see the world completely differently to anyone else.
  20. There is no limit to how many books you can write and how many lives you can change as a result.
  21. Writing it the most powerful communication tool you can use to change the world. Even if you learn something on a YouTube video; other video; or from listening to a person speak, it’s the act of writing that learning out, that instills the learning into the subconscious mind. It’s only through changing patterns in the subconscious mind, that we can begin to free ourselves of the social and parental conditioning that we have grown accustom to.

How many of these 21 reasons why I love being a writer can you relate to? Please write in the comments below, I would love to read you xx

Until next time, as always, stay quirky and write really soon
