When I graduated with my bachelors I was proud. When I graduated with my masters, I thought what next? When I met the love of my life when I was in my thirties, I thought life has a funny way of bringing us what we least expect. I could have stopped there.
I had my education, I had my husband, I had two wonderful children and an awesome family. But there were still dreams that I held deep within. Dreams that never stopped nagging at me, telling me that I had more within me.
It wasn't until I was 42 that I picked up that dream, dusted it off and put it to the ultimate test. I was rusty, even scared. I didn't know if I had what it would take to write a piece of work worthy of publication. But I faced my fear, I kept going. I got up at 4:30am every morning and wrote before it was time to go to work. I would worked on it over the weekend. I put my heart and soul into it and then one day it happened, I had my first draft.
Needless to say, Blue Moon is that vision, that dream that kept nagging at me. I loved writing it and I am loving writing the rest of the series. I have so many ideas, dreams, ready to be put to paper.
Today, I launched that dream for the world to see. I put it out there to be read, loved, and even hated. It will not be for everyone, but it will be enough for some. I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of support today, by text and social media. I will be honest, I don't know what the numbers are for today's sales, and it doesn't matter, not today. Today was about fulfilling a dream. I feel like I have done that.
Keep dreaming and keep believing. It will happen if you want it bad enough.
Have a peaceful night!
