So here’s the truth. Part of the reason I hesitated about restarting my blog was that I was afraid of the commitment. Nothing worse than logging in to check out someone’s blog and finding it hasn’t been updated in weeks or even worse, months. So this past June I jumped in, determined to NOT be “that” blogger and well… Ahem. But I have a good excuse!!! Well several, but THEE best one is a tiny announcement I have to make. I am thisclose to being a published author. Hmmm, should I end that statement with a period or an exclamation point? Sharing this news is hard for me. Not because I’m not excited about it, but because I struggle with self promoting. So strange. I can sing the praises of everyone else, put on a cheerleading uniform and go all in for people I support, love and admire, but when it comes to me…crickets. So pardon me while I find that balance between putting myself out there and not becoming the person you hate to see coming. When you see my name I want you to have good thoughts.
I recently wrote my first piece which will be featured as a chapter in a book called Dare to be A Difference Maker, Volume 4. I had to take time away from the blog to focus on it. This is what I call my baby step towards doing what I WILL do very soon (already claiming it), which is write a book! ”About what?”, you may ask. Life. I feel like I’ve experienced darn near everything imaginable and unimaginable at warp speed. To say those experiences haven’t changed me and my perspective on life would be the understatement of the year. Nothing like taking some time to reflect to make you realize how much you’ve changed and grown, especially when you had no desire or interest in either. When life seems “good like always” and then it isn’t… it’s all about Fairytales, Fate and Fortitude. Stay tuned! xo
