The Box: A Writer’s Dream

Did you know that when some authors publish a book they receive a box of their books before it is released? There are all kinds of videos online showing this magical reveal of the author seeing, smelling, touching, and listening to the sounds as the pages move through their fingers.  A writer’s dream comes to life before your eyes. Many authors have told me that there is nothing like that moment. All the time, work, love, devotion, and passion that were poured into every page are now a real physical entity. 

As I began my journey writing a book, I witnessed some of these videos. I could feel the joy through the screen. I pictured myself one day opening this mysterious box. At the time, I had no idea what the book cover would look like or even what the book would be about. The only thing I knew is that I wanted the title of the book to be, Letters from A Better Me

Now in front of me sits this box of books begging to be opened, but like a first date, kiss, and well you-know… I want this moment to be as fitting to the way I live my life as possible, so I will wait to open the box in the place that gives me the most inspiration. It’s my way of returning the AWE to nature, because it is in nature that most of my clarity comes from. Being out there will also help calm my nerves as I do my first-ever public Facebook Live. 

If you want to see what it’s like for someone’s dreams to become real before your eyes, you can join me on Facebook Live Tuesday, January 14, 2020 @ 5:15pm EST. If you miss it, you will be able to see it on my Facebook Page, Facebook.com/Lettersfromabetterme.

Life is made up of moments that are a combination of everything we put into them. Some of the emotions I had to stir up in Part I to make this journey as authentic as possible were very trying for me. I had to go back into traumatic events to remember feelings and actions. I needed to tap into a time where I had NO self-worth. Then I got to move from those dark times of struggle into the transformation process, which fills me with such joy and AWE that I spent many hours crying tears of joy as I typed page after page.

 This is one of those moments that is like taking a first step. Letters from A Better Me is my first book, so I’ve never experienced anything like this before. Just like a proud mama wants to capture those first steps, I want this moment to stay with me forever.  

Dreams do come true. First we have to make a choice to start doing the work to draw them closer. Otherwise they will just stay out of reach.

Wishing you all a dream-fulfilling journey. 

With Love and Gratitude,

I believe we are all powerful and can change the trajectories of our lives by breaking old patterns that no longer serve us. Our perception is our power. I share my experiences to keep me focusing on what matters and to help others do the same. My goal is to live life from a loving place. This is my journey! I hope you come along, and it becomes a destination you want to come back to on yours.
