Products paid with a click of a button

I have some exciting news!!

bring_it_logo_still-1485x667

I have recently started the big task of making it easier for you to purchase my products.

Instead of an external e-store, I have added a PayPal Buy Now button to *most* of my products to make it quicker and easier for you.

Buy Now button

At this stage, all of the online courses should have a PayPal Buy Now button. I do have other online courses, which may not have been added on this site yet. So if what you want isn’t there, you can still view my online store temporarily.

I am yet to add my awesome books to my website, so for now you can still purchase them through most online e-retailers such as Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Sony, Apple, Diesel and more. Just search Melanie Toye in their online store’s search bar.

 

Time for a revamp

I am very excited, you know, website’s take time to update. Not only that, but I have so many ideas and this year, it’s all about change for me. I am growing too.

I am excited because this year, I am writing for me. I used to love being a freelance business writer and author and now still an author that writes more and more each day. I am now an online trainer. I feel with my extensive experience in writing, especially freelance business writing to earn an income! To writing and publishing eBooks, to blog writing, glamourous fashion, interior design, job seeking and more, that my online courses give you what I know in the easiest way possible for you to transform your life and start on a new and exciting path.

In doing so, I have updated my website to transition from freelance writer to online trainer. I love to help others and my time is better used in helping people with step by step instructions on how to reach their desired destination. Let me help you get where you want to go.

The silly season is amongst us! Remember to relax

Wow, I love Christmas, every year it gets crazier and fuller.

Recently, I choreographed and organised for my team to dance a flash mob at work! It was incredible and it was definitely a tick to my bucket list.

The holidays can get stressful though, as we try to do all the work we can before we go on holidays and then shop nearly every day to get Christmas gifts for everyone and keep shopping and more shopping and well you get the picture!

Not to mention the school holidays and having to watch the children closely as they part in different ways in a busy place. One has to wonder, when do I get a break?

And the events, so many Christmas events.

This year, I was actually more organised. I did online shopping in November, but not everything was bought then. It is exhausting and all I really want is to r-e-l-a-x and just be me and have lazy days, while making memories with my family.

So how do I/we take a moment to relax? I do find it hard. Everything is so hyped up. Everything offers excitement and fun. Yet, sometimes to just be is enough and watch the craziness around us go crazy, while we are full of calm and peace.

Soothing music is a good start, plus writing. My friend also, was feeling a bit stressed, so I suggested writing it all down. She wasn’t actually sure what she was stressed about. Sometimes the little things pile up and soon we realise we are stressed. We keep suppressing all of those little stresses, because we are too busy  to deal with them and then it gets too much.

Over the holidays, try to relax. Take a day, take two in a role and just do nothing. When you do nothing, time slows. It is hard to do nothing, when your like me and like to always be doing something. If that’s the case. Sit outside and write, or colour, or paint. Let nature heal you, as you focus on one activity.

It’s easy to get exhausted from trying to do everything. Delegate or discard tasks that you don’t need to do before Christmas and with work.

You will feel a lot better and your mind and your body will get the rest it truly deserves.

Also, take some much needed time off line.

Merry Christmas and I hope you have a relaxing time off!

I feel quite honoured to have Cheapass Sunglasses contact me to do a post and review on the sunglasses of my choice!
I chose The Zebra. The coolest sunglasses that I knew were me and I just had to have.
I took them for a test drive to a baseball game. I had them on my head, taking piccies and then the sun was quite bright so I put them on. Wow. I was impressed. The light tint shading made the sky look simply beautiful. The lens were clear.
Normally, I find sunglasses hard to fit me, but this pair of sunglasses from www.cheapasssunglasses.com fit perfectly.
I also wore my sunglasses to work and had comments about how cool they were on my arrival. (A lovely start to the day, I must say!)

The new comedic series: Harrison Court

Take a read of my comedy pilot script of Harrison Court:

Harrison Court is set in the Stepford Moms neighborhood, with Mia and her family who are a modern day family, where just getting through a day and not being seen as perfect is considered normal, however is unaccepted to the Stepford Moms neighborhood.

Please read it and rate it here.

Personally, I think it’s hilarious. Enjoy!

Letting go of anger

For at least the past week, something has been happening. My very positive, happy demeanor has been deteriorating. Anger was inwardly building. Even on weekends,spent with my loved ones, I felt sad and depressed. I couldn’t shake that awful unhappy feeling, I couldn’t get out of it. I brushed it off, as I do, because that is not me. I am not like that. Every night, I have had dreams. Dreams where I knew there was a message trying to be conveyed. I wrote them all down when I woke up. Then two days ago, around midday I started getting major headaches. I never get headaches!

I started excerising in the past week, which provided an immediate happy effect yet soon died quickly after. I was clinging to anything and everything to try and stay in the happy boat but as soon as I left that space, my mood quickly returned.

So here I am 2.14 am in the morning. The second night this week I cannot sleep, when I was thinking how angry I was about a certain situation and then I realised how instead of blaming that person I should actually look at myself. I woke up and googled, how to release anger and found this excellent article for women: http://www.pmscomfort.com/pms-pmdd-symptoms/pms-pmdd-anger-management-techniques-for-women.aspx

But I still needed something more, so I went on Youtube and found this excellent guided meditation video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pk0Jeqcv5Q8

I took a notepad and pen and as the meditation began I wrote down everything that I was angry about. Throughout the meditation, I felt anxious. I let go of tears in release, I felt absolutely calm and then vulnerable and I am so grateful. I released it all and know right now, I feel better already. That tomorrow, I will return to me and that makes me feel so good.

It’s amazing how the body responds when dealing with built-up anger, learn the signs and deal with it immediately, to return to you. Sending you good vibes for the week.

 

Tell me something …

It’s time to go deep. Deeper.

Tell me, how was your day today? Did you have a good day? Fairly good? Okay? Could it have gone better?

Some days of late, I have been finding are just well, not as great as they normally are. My standard of happiness is generally fairly level. My days go from good to great to awesome and amazing. They never go down from good until last week.

One day, when the moon had disappeared after the full moon showcase the night before, I had a bad day and I discovered, I wasn’t the only one. Nearly everyone I had spoken to had a bad day that day. Good, so I wiped off that one not so good day.

But then today, another not so good day. But I realised something, I had only a not so great moment, but the rest of the day was either normal, peaceful or beautiful. So why should I let that one moment control how the rest of my day eventuates or how I should feel for the rest of the day.

I  feel like I am talking in riddles. There are moments, where life isn’t great and that is okay. That is how we know we are human. It also provides an opportunity to learn and grow. It’s also important when feeling not so great, to think of all the good moments in the day and cherish them, remember how they made you fell because the not so good moments aren’t who you are, they are just events that you had no control over. So let it go.

If life were predictable and the same every day, how would we push through and make it amazing? How would our motivation to change our current path drive us to a new path?

I am grateful for life’s ups and downs. I am grateful that every day, I can know the bad moments and then count all the good moments and realise how amazing my life is.
