Live Your Best Life: Things To Do Before 40 is NOW Available!!!!!!!!!

Hello Love!

This is Sheamonique Ellis with 1 Busy Mommy and I am so excited to see that Live Your Best Life: Things To Do Before 40 is now available at AMAZON!

This beauty dropped today! And I am ecstatic! I started this process in September, began writing and refining in October, made several attempts to have it finished for by my 30th birthday of November 25th and STILL I am elated. It still feels right on time! This was a bucket list of sorts that I created for myself. Unable to do all the things I wanted to do by my 30th birthday because let’s be real… I had 2 kids, started and almost completed a Master’s in Library and Information Science. Started and COMPLETED a Master’s and Teacher Credential in Special Education so doing ALL that I wanted wasn’t in the cards.


This book is my promise to myself…. It could have been infinitely longer like several of the Ultimate TO DO LISTS I came across but I wanted to be realistic and a BIT extra.

So I wrote this. And I Think It could be something for you to. I think this could get you think about what you want to experience, have, see, do, buy, read, and more.

1 Busy Mommy, will be my homage to this list and my journey in working on this list. So go to the link…ADD It Into Your Cart and BUY 1 for Your and ANOTHER for a friend!

This is the LINK! To Get the Book Live Your Best Life: Things To Do When You Turn 40 

Let me know some of the things you have on your list! Talk To me in the comments below.

Talk To You Soon,

I am… More than What Meets the Eye

Hello Love,

This is one of my writings.

I am the Master’s carrying, salaried woman, who got it on her own that the media tells you about.

I am lover of coffee, fine wine, the color yellow, the smell of books, the joy of musicals, and giraffes.

I am girl of optimism, the starter of conversation, the first to the dance floor, but also disinterested in being the center of attention.

I am the artist, scared to bare my soul, so I try to write it beautifully.

I am the woman who knew well enough that I couldn’t ask a man to heal all the scars on my soul left by the pervert who lived in my house and made me feel unsafe, and too beautiful. That it must be something that I did aside from go to bed that made him come into my room while my mom worked.

I am the girl who excelled at school, and became student body president, so that they could focus on my smile and see what I wanted them to see.

I am the girl who knew I wasn’t strong enough to heal my own scars so I went to counseling, I went to God, I went to prayer, to make myself anew.

I am the woman who learned that real men who want you pursue you and that my need to be independent and assertive was actually my crutch. So when I finally learned to submit, to allow myself to need someone, I did so to a man that knew how to handle my strength and allowed me to be me.

I am still becoming on this journey of womanhood, motherhood, and creativity. I am finally allowing myself to define myself after years of permitting others to define me.

I am Sheamonique Ellis.

Now, my love, Tell me who you are.
