Whew. For days I've been trying to decide how I will write this post. And then I remembered that I need to just begin and keep my mind out of this. To trust the process like I've been writing about all along. But how do I begin? Do I begin by telling you that my insides are all aflutter, that everything inside of me is trembling and dancing and skipping and leaping all around? Do I begin by telling you that it's been raining all morning and that, just now, at this very moment, the sun has decided to peek out? Or do I begin by telling you that a dream of mine just came true and that that dream is currently sitting here, very quietly, very prettily, right beside me?
Or maybe I should begin with a birth announcement because this is, after all, a birth. Okay, here goes....
On the OTHER SIDE of FEAR
Born June 5, 2012 at 1:51 PM
Weighing 4.6 ounces
Measuring 8.5 x 8.5 x 0.2 inches
She's alive and healthy and amazingly still & quiet.
So. She's here, this dream of mine.
It's wild to write this. To know now, to really know, that it's true. That when you continue to move toward what moves you, when you continue to move toward what you love, miracles happen. It feels so good to tell you this--to be able to say to you what I know for sure now...
Dreams come true, magic and miracles happen when you believe in yourself, when you let faith be your safety net. When you just begin and move one little step at a time, toward what makes your heart sing.
Back in March, when I had just decided to take the leap and move forward with this book dream, I wrote:
I've decided that a life of magic and possibility does not happen by playing it safe or by making other's opinions/thoughts/judgments more important than my own.
I've decided to seriously trust the voice that speaks of creating a life of magic and possibility.
I've decided that true comfort, true peace, true bliss, true love, come from stepping out of my "comfort" zone and into (firmly, with the whole of my Self) my most expansive, Real, magical Self.
And today, once again, I feel shaky and totally out of my comfort zone but I'm believing, more than ever, in magic and possibility.
I'm beyond excited to share this baby of mine with you, this little tangible piece of my heart.
I don't really know what to do next. I'm just doing one thing, then another, then another. Right now I want to tell you that you can pre-order a signed-by-me copy of one (or more) of these babies. There will be a limited number of signed copies at this time, so, if you're called, hurry on over! You can do that by clicking HERE.
I'm still waiting for these little ones to be shipped to me and then I will have to ship to you, so it will be a couple of weeks before you get to hold her in your hands. But she will be worth the wait, I'm sure of it.
Each of you who come here with your encouragement and support and love have everything to do with this little creation, there is a bit of each of you inside these pages. That just feels like the most precious thing to me.
With so much love & so much gratitude,
Pssssst: If you aren't already on my mailing list, please hop on! I expect there are going to be many important bits of goodness to come.
