It's a #throwbackthursday and I'm honoring that with a blog post from 2012. It's interesting how much we change, yet stay the same as time changes. There were several things that this post caused me to reflect on as I re-read it.
Written Friday, July 20, 2012 on Writing My Dreams
Today I had the opportunity to be interviewed for a press release. And although someone that I was familiar with was the person hosting the interview, I realized I was just as nervous as if I were interviewing for a position within a company. However, as the interview surged forward I found myself becoming relaxed and comfortable and dropping all doubts and fears. The more questions she had for me the more I began to think about my book and my writing in ways that I had not before.
Last night I came to the revelation that I was born to do this...because it fulfills me when I write and create stories. I understand this is one of God's purposes in my life to bring enjoyment to others. I feel settled and as though I have finally come home and found the place that I belong. And when I shared with my husband that this is what I was born to do, he stated to me "I'm glad you're finally listening to me." So with that revelation came another one today...I am going to be okay no matter where this road leads. I was comfortable interviewing and passionate about describing "Reflections of Promises" and for the first time I had true confidence in my work without reservation.
I received a 4 star rating on Amazon this past Sunday, which boosted my confidence and then today I received a couple of more reviews and one person actually read the entire book in one day. What an honor! It truly left me speechless and encouraged me in ways that I cannot describe. So I will close this blog earlier tonight as I go back to another project I have in the works...something about fences and grass...can't reveal too much too early.
