I have this crazy idea to write another ebook. In fact, I’ve been working on it for about a year. I’ve bounced my ideas off a few people through my newsletter, leaked a bit of it on my Facebook Page and Tweeted about it. The feedback has been amazing. But something is missing.
You who show up and read blog posts.
You who share my love for coffee and What I Wore Wednesday.
I miss writing to you and interacting with you about what is on my heart.
And now I have another crazy idea.
What are you doing every Monday for the next 10 weeks?
Here is my plan:
- You stop by here on Monday for coffee and reading.
- I’ll give you a sample of each chapter. (Not the entire thing, just a smidgen of it.)
- We’ll process whatever it stirs up.
- I’ll keep writing and try to stay ahead of our coffee dates.
- Together, we’ll get this book written.
- When it is complete you can help me celebrate!
What do you think? Want to help me write a book?
P.S. The working title of the book is “How To Be Okay with Where You Are” and here is the synopsis:
“We all felt the agony of defeat when we watched Jordyn Wieber’s dream of an Olympic gold medal in the gymnastic all around slip through her chalked fingertips during the London 2012 games. Her dream died in a matter of minutes and by fractions of a point. Visibly shaken she took a moment to gather herself. Later she spoke graciously of the tough competition and how proud she was of her American teammates during her post meet interview. Eventually we saw what this champion was made of when she led her USA team to Olympic gold in the team finals. I think we all cried right along with her mom. The thrill of victory is even sweeter when the agony of defeat is still so vivid in our minds.
I love this story because it is just like real life. Dreams that slip away hurt like crazy. The pain is real. Sometimes we have to pull ourselves together and cheer others on as they go for the gold we were hoping to capture. Life doesn’t always go the way we want, and we have to decide in these defining moments if we are going to crumble or not.
I know this feeling all too well.”
