The journey continues. So I started writing another book in 2009, set it aside since receiving a bad review and never continued…until now. So upon reviewing it, ’twas amazing to see how much I’ve developed as a person and a writer since then.
Some of the things written was really awful which I deleted immediately, since I won’t want that to see the light of day! But on a serious note, most things were really good…refreshing even. I did some editing and writing and have a newfound mission! Not sure what direction this new book is going to take since I only have a few chapters, but I need to write some more to get everything into focus and come up with a concept.
I am really going to make a concerted effort to continue steadfastly to write something every week. I am giving myself until next year. At first I was so excited…I thought I could have it ready by the end of this year but I want this to be a masterpiece so next year it is. I hope to be in a completely different place mentally and emotionally by next year as well. It’s going to be a great journey. Can’t wait…
I decide this day to take each day in stride, to live every moment to the fullest. To learn the lessons and don’t let anything get to me. It’s funny what difference a week can make. I have a new mindset and drive to conquer and live my purpose. I hosted my first function at my new job on Friday and that was my turning point. To see the look on all the faces and have everyone listen to each other as they shared their experiences of being a mother during the team building exercise was priceless. To watch the excitement as they all played a game together was also truly exhilarating! It made me realize that this is what I was meant to do with my life and I am going to put things in place to start doing that. There’s so much more to accomplish beyond sitting behind a desk. Everything changes when you interact with people. It has brought about a deeper sense of purpose and fulfillment as you are actually able to enrich lives, empower persons and make a difference.
Hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day and were pampered or did the pampering. This is the first Mother’s Day I did not spend with my mother since I moved away, but I spoke to her several times throughout the day and night so she knows she’s in my thoughts and we are connected regardless of distance.
Tomorrow begins a brand new week…Remember to Make it Count!
