I am jumping for joy inside. Within me is a ridiculously happy version of myself dancing around, no thought of dignity or compusure, just dancing around singing, “I did it, I did it!” What have I done? After too many years of talking, thinking, dreaming, prodding, being encouraged, discouraged, procrastinating, being crushed and at times imagining it would not be possible - I have started my book. I have not just started, I’ve written the first chapter, just completed today. I’m jumping for joy as I’ve done for me, the hardest part, getting started. For all you dreaming and avoiding out there - please just do it! It’s so worth it and you have only regret to lose, and you don’t need that.
Now I will reward myself with more writing, this time for the blog. Take a look at “A View From Outside the Box,” on Tuesday for a mystery piece. (That’s Stephanie speak for I really haven’t a clue but will conjure it from somewhere.)
