For years… I mean YEARS, I’ve written and rewritten my book in my head. I never knew how to get it from my head onto paper or onto a computer. It’s like a song I need to sing in this life time. It nags at me and I’ve written pages in my head for so long.
Over the past few days I’ve been knocked off my feet and laying flat with a fairly aggressive stomach bug and I’ve been in and out of sleep. My brain hasn’t been with it a whole lot, but it’s as though it got the rest it needed while I want using it.
I have reflected quite a bit about my life in between watching a ridiculous amount of episodes of the show suits. I finished an entire episode in less than two days. My seven year old claims I’m addicted.
I got some strength back recently, I took a clean blank sheet of paper and wrote in capitals on the top “I’m ready to write my book”
I commited. I’m ready.
I wanted the universe to know, I want my brain to know. I wanted every fibre of my being to know… I’m ready. Bring it on.
It’s as though a flood gate of memories and highlight moments came flushing to my conscious mind. Things I had buried so deep I didn’t think I’d find them. All those pages and topics came pouring out of my mind. I needed to write.
Dream after dream, waking up at all hours with a new thing to add to that piece of paper.
I then moved stages to flash cards, I began breaking the possible chapters down.
When you put it out there, ” I’m ready”… It’s amazing what starts happening.
It’s like looking in a room for everyone wearing green, you’ll find it. I’m focusing on the book and my brain went to work.
I have written so many bullet points and things that are going to be apart of this book.
Due to time, I know this project will be one that takes a while. I can’t at this stage dedicate hours per day writing. But I can start. I am clear.
There is so much to learn as I’ve not been down this journey before, and I’m excited. For the first time, the thought of writing this book doesn’t frighten me. I’m ready. I know people in this world need my book… I’m going to make it happen.
Until next time, make it a great day
