So, I know that you might have started to follow this blog for the simple fact that I announced I am writing a book. Don’t worry, I would probably do the same thing if I wasn’t the one writing the blog. I guess I should oblige and give you faithful followers a little nugget or two about the book, but you’ll have to get the good stuff when it comes out! Actually, a select few of you might get a sneak peek in exchange for your feedback. But only if you promise to be nice!
Without giving too much away, this first book (first implies a second..and a third) sets the scene with the background of the experiences I have had in my life. The good, the bad, even the times when I hit rock bottom. And then went even further down. One of my biggest weaknesses has been my reluctance to be vulnerable, to let go and let it be. Well, someone has a peculiar sense of humor and thinks it would be funny to make my calling in life revolve around being vulnerable, leaving myself open to judgement, uncertainty, and embarrassment. Leaving me wide open.
While I like to talk, might be something to do with that ADD diagnosis, I don’t necessarily like to share. No wise cracks about being an only child, either! I don’t like to show that I need help, that I can’t handle what’s being thrown at me. I have a reputation of being confident, secure, and strong, I can’t let anyone see otherwise. I have been through a lot, as we all have, but I always believed that I was blessed with God-given strength to get me to the other side. I was only half right. It had nothing to do with me and everything to do with Him.
Now you will have to follow the blog and read the book to hear the rest!
