Don’t let fear keep you from Life.
I wanted to share this with you. It has been on my heart for a while. I just haven’t taken the time to write it yet. It is an important topic for discussion…. I realize somewhere I got lost living in fear. I am not happy living there. It is not my normal residency either. I have no idea how long I have been here. A year? Maybe two?
Usually, I don’t live with fear. I live with the hope of the idea of: someday, somehow… I live by doing my best and having faith for the rest of it… Because one never knows what tomorrow holds. There are three ways to fail.
If we complain about what we don’t have, if we blame others for our own lack we won’t get anywhere. We can’t live with resentment, anger, or ungratefulness. Those are tools that hold you back. They let fear work its way into your life if its not already there. You also can’t try to live up to others’ expectations. It is impossible to be who they want and yourself. Just be yourself.
FEAR is a powerful weapon and enemy that strikes you at every chance. Fear of failure, missing out, not being noticed, not being good enough, fear of being forced, ect… You have to believe in yourself and know that you have a unique creative presence and purpose. One that only you have…
Life is short, you do not know what tomorrow holds. What will change, what may happen or not happen… There are so many possibilities and chances… You need to overcome the fear and put forth the effort. Work towards your desires, dreams, goals.
Don’t put off what you wanna do or where you wanna go, because you think you may fail, you have failed. With the thought, it may not work out… If you don’t try… If you don’t put yourself out there nothing will ever change! Simple as that! If you don’t put in the effort and let go of or overcome the fear you will never get your reach your dreams, desires, or goals…
I say this out of true love and from personal experience… Life Hard!!!!! I have put off some things I really wanted and then it was to beforehand have regrets… I don’t ever want to do that again… I don’t want to live with regrets or see anyone miss out on their dreams for lack of trying.
You have to do it for yourself! You deserve happiness… You are special, amazing, and loved!! Don’t be afraid. Fear keeps us from joy! From reaching potentials we may not even know is possible.
We may never be fully satisfied with our lives, but we can do our best and make the best out of what we have!!!
💕 I really appreciate you all. Your encouragement means a lot!
I hope you find your passion if you haven’t and stay safe!
God bless you today and always!

MERRY CHRISTMAS 2019
Christmas is my most favored Holiday of the year! This year and last year have been met with difficult times. They weren’t the only difficult Christmases we had. But we had a nice time. God is good!!
I often ask why the most sever issues in life come around during holidays? The answer I came up with is there is to much pressure to make the Holidays perfect. So please sit back, and enjoy the precious time you get with your love ones, if possible. and don’t fret the little mistakes. The badly wrapped gifts, the gifts you forgot to mail, the cooked meals. If you are alone then do something for yourself, make the day memorable, and enjoy it!! Everyone- Enjoy the little moments.
Every day is a precious gift given to us. Don’t let let depression, loneliness, or fear, keep you from finding the little joys in life. Dont wast anger and stress over things that shouldn’t matter bit focus on what does matter. Make the most out of what you are given and have and appreciate those and what you have in your life because you never know what tomorrow will bring.
The best gift you can give is Love and Support to one another. We are all waiting for someone or something. Don’t give up if it’s what your really want. Waiting is hard but while we wait we grow and learn new things about ourselves and our life around us. When the time comes and we achieve the goal at hand. It is better than ever imagine.
God bless you today and Always!

Belive in Nice
I saw this on someone’s license plate holder, and it made me smile. It has been brought to my attention multiple times that nice people are scary because they seem fake and insincere. I promise you I am real and I am nice. I wish more people would believe in being nice and trust that there are truly nice people. There are too many fake people out there that give us nice people a bad reputation. It is really sad how some people are afraid to be nice. They worry it will lead to hurt and disappointment or the possibility of being used. How do you change the world? As God says in Evan Almighty A.R.K. One Act of kindness at a time… That is how I choose to live… I challenge you to be kind once in a while at least. 😊

Hello Dear Friends,
I just got back from Camping. It was a great trip. I wish so many of you could have come with us and enjoyed the serenity away from the Hurried lives most of us all now live.
It is so funny how your environment can change how you act how you think. I used to debate that as being false… But I have found I was wrong. I know an Environment change can be good but it doesn’t always work on all people. I know this is not always true. And it hasn’t been for me. However after a week-long of camping I have trained myself in a way that I didn’t expect I’m using way less water than I used to. And I thought I was pretty good at conserving water before this trip. I keep looking for fire to burn my paper trash. I am surprised to put on clean clothes and not feel sand or dirt inside. A shower feels like a blessing. What a joy not to have to sponge bath. (We I have driven 40 miles to the shower. But we were having so much fun.) My bed almost feels too big and to soft. I feel spoiled. It was such a joy and such a great trip I can’t help but want to climb back into the car and go back. I miss the computer and the games and the phone but I hardly get on the computer other than to write. It was peaceful and serene in ways I have never experienced before. I really truly wish I could have shared this experience with so many of you; but certain few people for sure.
If you have not been camping before I’d totally suggest it!
♥ Love ya,
Amy Jane Sandberg
This year has been hard for me, yet I’ve been blessed! So much has happened and changed since last Christmas. This year there seems to be something missing. I can’t put my finger on what it is. There is for sure a cloud of depression hanging over people too. But I am staying thankful. I am making a effort to spread cheer and love. Along with the reason for the season. Keep in mind Christmas only comes once a year. But it lives in my heart year round. Choose not to let the little things get to you. I know this time of year brings back bad and good memories for all. I want to encourage you to focus on the good. Have regrets? Everyone does. But… Every day is a new day bringing new chances and choices. Don’t wait for the new year resolution to change. Do it now… So you can be happy sooner. ♥ I know I make it sound so easy. But I know that it is not. I truly believe that if you look you can find reasons to be happy. Complain less and smile more… Every thing worth doing – takes effort! Learn to appreciate each opportunity to make a choice as they arrive.
This year again I didn’t finish the main books I’m working on. (Why work on more than one at a time? = to keep the writer block away.) I did pubish a smalk e-BOOK. And I am continuing to make progress on my main books almost daily. I am working on them more determined then ever now. So keep checking back with me and please don’t hesitate to ask me about them. ♥

I have been extremely inspired lately to write. Yet still have been able to settle down enough to focus on my thoughts to get them out. I have been running around like crazy inside my mind. Outwardly I am sleepy and antsy. I need to buckle down and finish my room. I need to also take some stuff to storage, sort my cloths for donations again, go on a road trip to see my Cardiologist, sort out some personal issues, try to fix some friendships while keeping the ones I hold most dear. Plus my baby sister had a baby on June 2end! Conner Roy is now 1 month old! Woot! I am so happy for her, I am so glad he is in our lives… And that is only part of it… But I am working on what I need to get done! And am working on the books, but slowly right now.
So for book work here is what has been done the past 3 months:
* “Life is Harder Than you Think” – Has been re-named “Miracles still Happen Today” I wrote another chapter now I have about 40 pages and still have a ways to go. This HAS be my main project for now. I won’t get it done if I keep following impulses to work on the other books I am working on. Which is exactly what I have been doing.
* “The Crimson Kiss” is now “The Crimson Star” I wrote another two chapters in that = about 60 pages.. I have a total of about four chapters now.
* I LOST and FOUND my main book “The Princess and The Mirror” It seems I accidentally deleted all my back ups………. So I though.. (A case of them being in the wrong folders) But guess what I just found It on my old flash drive. I am not sure how much of my Re-writes I lost. But Thank GOD I found them. He is so amazing!! I could have restarted it, but luckily I didn’t loose it after all!
* “Issiboo” is now renamed “Mission Fred” other then that no real work on that one.
* I started three other books. “Musical Mishap”, and two others which are on hold. (I can not seem to remembered the names right now, but they are awesome names.) All three have 1st chapters done with summaries for me. Two are set in current times. One is set in a more castle age. That one started a s a short story and just keeps getting longer.
Those are only the current updates. I have more books. I lost the list I once made so I will re-make it in a week or so if you want to know exactly what I have.
That is about all. I am off to dinner with my family and then to pick out Conner Roy’s new baby prints!! Take care! God bless YOU today and always!
