Every heart has a story to tell. My story is about Gratitude.
….You see, I used to be a selfish girl. I wrote stories but I did not share them. In 2009, Lady Fate – in all her wisdom – decided to change that. I suffered a major concussion that resulted in me losing my senses of smell and taste. During the reflective days after that curveball, something in my soul stirred. My selfish girl days were numbered.
I tuned in to the soulcall to share and was rewarded generously: I developed superpowers. Yes, superpowers! I realised that:
My loss of smell forced me to use my ears more.
So, I started to listen. Really listen.
My loss of taste forced me to use my eyes more.
So, I started to see. Really see.
It occurred to me that on the road to recovery, I had developed a special set of skills using instinct, intuition, vibrations, feelings, nuances. My 2 dull senses heightened the 3 fully functional ones. Those superpowers were my biggest gift as a writer. They made for some powerful storytelling.
So began my journey to publishing my writing. My stories translated into emotions. The emotions connected hearts and magic began to happen.
I followed the magic.
I let my heart guide me.
I had no idea where the road would lead me.
I simply put one foot in front of the other and kept writing.
Before I knew it, I had penned my soon to be published debut novel. I screamed “thank you!” and then sat down to write some more.
And, you know what? It’s true what they say! All the universe does conspire to help the one who dares to follows their heart. I believe this 100% and so should YOU!
Aluta continua, as they say. I wish you the courage to tell the story that only YOU can tell too.
!NEWSFLASH: In the next few weeks I will FINALLY be able to share with you the dates for my book release and I am beyonddddddddddddddddd excited. Thank you for listening with open hearts, for connecting, for engaging. Thank you for helping make my dreams come true.
