When I was young, I was a prolific poetry writer. I was always inspired to write about how I fit into the world through nature and people. I set a goal for myself that I would write a book by the age of 30. I was thinking poetry, but the universe had other plans for me.
I celebrated my 31st birthday in a hospital bed, unaware of the day or the people around me. So while I didn’t write my book then, a major illness colored my world and became fodder for the book I am writing now.
Being able to share a piece of my story in the “Speaking Your Truth” project has been a great blessing in my life. Not only has it connected me to a wonderful caring network of women, but the act of writing a chapter has put me back in touch with the dream of writing my own book. I am now dedicating time to the writing process, and know that when my book is finished, it will touch many lives. I am also keenly aware of how going back to that time in my life and seeing what I survived has reminded me of my tenacity, my ability to work through any situation, one step at a time.
I can’t wait for this book to be published so I can get it into the hands of the people I love. We all have within us the ability to conquer whatever tries to crush the human spirit. Hopefully this book will inspire you to tap into that wisdom and create your life dreams!
