Okay, so I took a major first step on the night of December 19th in working to make my dreams and goals come true. On that night, I submitted my forty-one page book proposal to a major publishing company in hopes that I win the top prize of their writing contest!
The reality is that writing has been a dream of mine since I was about 10 years old. I remember making a little paper book at my aunts house. It was done with gray construction paper and a black crayon. I think I actually still have it. Anyhow, at that time, my book was a fictional story about a haunted house. I was so caught up in the idea of this eight page masterpiece being of great worth and value that I even glued my school photo to the back of it. Well just as many of our childhood dreams do, the idea of being an author faded away and my focus turned to life, school, starting my family, etc. Then, about eight years ago, the dream surfaced again. So with the support of my daughter and husband, I bought a Toshiba laptop and set out to write a great fictional story. The book was going to be about a woman who was in love with a leader of a rough and wild motorcycle club. Although I can still feel the presence of the characters, my efforts gave way to life, work, and family. However, something was different this time. The idea of writing DID NOT go away.
Again, within the support of my daughter and husband, I quite my preschool job and started to get in touch with the nudging feeling that I had something to write about. I knew it wasn’t my beloved motorcycle story, although I would enjoy reading it someday. There was something else I had to write about. As I started to tune into the energy that this feeling was bringing me, I found my footing for the path that has lead me here. Mind you, this has been three and a half years in the making, but none-the-less, it has gotten me here.
During these last three and half years, I have accumulated a small library of journal entries and research notes. I have studied numerous science topics thoroughly, including the world of physics, and basked in the realizations that all of this work has revealed. Throughout these years, I have also done some really grueling and difficult work on my internal struggles. I needed to unload many of my heavy burdens, even though I wasn’t initially sure of the reason why. As time marched on and the pieces to my life’s puzzle where coming into view and actually locking into place, I realized that I had to do all of this internal work so that I could fly when it was time for me to take my major leap. And on December 19th, 2017…I did!
Welcome to my journey!
Whatever the results are of this amazing contest (which are supposed to be released between January 24th and February 28th), I will fly. Thanks to the good graces of Divine Timing, and a lot of really hard work…I WILL FLY! For me, the idea of flying means never letting go of my hopes and dreams…no matter what obstacles or disappointments stand in my way. Flying means finding freedom within the power of my work and choices. It equals celebrating the opportunity for creating a future of my dreams, one that only change can bring. To me, flying means living my life. I no longer wish to exist within the framework of the world that was constructed around me. I aim to fly amid a world of my own making; one of dedicated work, concentrated effort, love, light, and laughter.
