Turning a Page and Facing Some Changes

Posted on September 14th, 2013 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz, I Love My LIfe

It’s time for me to make a change on Miz Meliz – the blog and in my life.  It’s something I have been planning for a while and I am quite excited about it.  I woke up from a nice deep sleep thinking about one of my all time favorite songs from David Bowie and I knew that today is the day to share what is going on.

Changes

Oh, yeah
Mmm

Still don’t know what I was waitin’ for
And my time was runnin’ wild
A million dead end streets and
Every time I thought I’d got it made
It seemed the taste was not so sweet
So I turned myself to face me
But I’ve never caught a glimpse of
How the others must see the faker
I’m much too fast to take that test

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
Turn and face the strange
Ch-ch-changes
Don’t want to be a richer man
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
Turn and face the strange
Ch-ch-changes
Just gonna have to be a different man
Time may change me
But I can’t trace time
Mmm, yeah

I watch the ripples change their size
But never leave the stream
Of warm impermanence
So the days float through my eyes
But still the days seem the same
And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They’re quite aware of what they’re goin’ through

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
Turn and face the strange
Ch-ch-changes
Don’t tell them to grow up and out of it
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
Turn and face the strange
Ch-ch-changes
Where’s your shame?
You’ve left us up to our necks in it
Time may change me
But you can’t trace time

Strange fascination, fascinatin’ me
Ah, changes are takin’
The pace I’m goin’ through

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
Turn and face the strange
Ch-ch-changes
Oh, look out you rock ‘n’ rollers
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
Turn and face the strange
Ch-ch-changes
Pretty soon now you’re gonna get older
Time may change me
But I can’t trace time
I said that time may change me
But I can’t trace time

It may just seem like a new background and color scheme to you when you see the new website.  Other than that not much will look different at first when you see it.  And that’s good.  But there are some major changes.  The new site is going to be everything Miz Meliz iz (sorry couldn’t resist!) and more.

One exciting feature that is in the works is a new page where you will be able to schedule an appointment or book sessions with me for coaching.  Soon, there will also be a place to sign up for workshops that I am offering. Of course there will be a page where you can learn more about my book that is due to be released in October.  And that is the BIG news!  The book.  My first book to be published is almost ready.  Correction, I am almost ready to publish it!  The words have been written and ready to go for awhile.  I will release it to you in a few weeks.  I hope you like it!

Please let me know in the comments if you will be willing to buy my book, “This is the Sound of My Soul.”  I would like to start a list to get an idea of what to expect.  I’ve been wanting to put this “out there” for a while.  There are so many options and price points and decisions I need to make.  Here is what I am thinking . . . if you like entertainment you might pay $12 to see a movie.  If you like to drink reasonably good coffee, you might pay $4.50 for a latte.  Could we split the difference and price the book (approximately 135 pages of reasonably good entertaining prose of my perspective on life, roughly four and a half hours of reading) at $8.99?

Let me know. I greatly appreciate your input!

As the sun sets on this chapter of my life, I look to the horizon for a glimpse of inspiration.

Moving on. Changes are happening!  Not just the new website (same url by the way, but new host so it will be my own real estate on the internet.)  Not just the book release.  Not just the coaching and workshops.  My life is changing in a big way.  My son, is moving in a few days.  He is going away to college.  This marks a big milestone in the life of my family.  It is monumental.  It is exciting.  I am proud beyond words.  My heart is singing with joy!  It does not feel like the emptiness I thought it would be. (Wow, I just realized how I timed all these new things to start in my life with this big change, positive changes and moving forward, me thinks.) It feels like my heart is expanding.

Our family is growing, learning, moving forward.  These are good changes.  I am fully prepared and ready to embrace these changes.  I believe my son is more than ready and capable.  This makes me oh so happy!

So I will turn and face the strange changes.

Time may change me.

But I can’t trace time.

Don’t forget.  Please tell me in the comments:

Would you buy my book online for $8.99 (paperback) or $3.99 (download) and would you like to be on a mailing list for further notices about the book and future publications by Melissa Reyes? (That’s me of course!) Yours truly, Miz Meliz

  1. Got to love David Bowie! Good luck with your ch-ch-changes.

  2. You and me girl. We’re walking a fine line.. and that change is what will push us over 😉 And I’d love to support you in anyway that I can. I love the background you’ve chosen for your blog.

    As scary as it can be–change is fun/exciting as well. I’m looking forward to hearing about everything that’s coming your way; as well as joining you in your journeys! BYW, I think that’s a good price for your book–I love reading & that’s right in the ballpark for things I shop for.

  4. I happen to be in a similar situation as yourself totally about to redo my website, blog and first book. I think it is a fair price what you suggested. I would like to know more about what kind of coaching you do for I am starting my practice from scratch and a consulting program yet could also a better understanding of marketing online. I never thought i would be transparent about what I just am coming out of but I just lost everything including belongings and car to an abusive situation and I myself specialize in those issues especially in the church. It shook my confidence to the core. You are positive, humbly, relate well, enjoy your writing style, and your willingness to meet your readers and targeted markets needs is refreshing instead of someone that has all the answers. You really inspired me when I most needed it. God Bless You, Dr. Regina Baldwin.

  5. Jonathan Lopez says:

    Yes, I will buy it for $28.99, the coffee table version.

  6. I will get your book on one condition…will you sign it?? 😉 I would also love to feature it on my blog.

  7. upliftingfam says:

    I wish you luck with your new changes. 🙂

  8. Stopping by from So Cal Lady Bloggers Link-Sharing group. I love your blog and totally understand change. I am currently and slowly making changes to my blog. Be sure to stop by when you have time (www.hsvihl,blogspot,com).

    I would be interested in reading your book. Not sure which version I would do. Probably would have to say digital as I don’t have much space for books currently.

    I will probably buy the download to support you. I am on a book diet, but I will read it eventually. I want you to succeed.
