I wrote and self published my first book in 2016. Growing up, my only aspiration/dream was to become a writer and to make living from my writing. I imagined my life would consist of me traveling the world and creating stories for my readers.
Although, my dream in life has not went exactly as I had imagined, I am happy to say I am living my dream. I have currently two books out (working on a third). Both books I believe raise awareness to topics I feel are very important (sexual assault and drunk driving).
I know this is only the beginning and I am looking forward to the journey. I promised myself last year that I would not make any excuses this year. I told myself that I would take chances and face my fears head on.
I am happy to let you all know that I am doing just that.
I have three events I will be selling my books at so far this year. I have the slightest idea how I will do or if people will even like my books. However, I have decided to not focus on the negative and what “could.” Instead, I have decided to focus on the positive and what “cans.”
By living your life in fear or allowing the fear of the unknown to take over, you are not allowing yourself to live out your full potential. You don’t want to get 80 years old and regret the things you did not do.
I am taking steps out on faith this year. I am trusting God every step of the way and I am trusting myself. I am sharing this with you today in hopes that you to will take a step out on faith.
It is better to say I tried it and it did not work out, than to say I was too afraid to because, I did not want to fail.
