I guess if this was a story of the Tortoise and the Hare, there really is no question as to who I would be; a little slow Tortoise who will never give up.
I’ve had a dream for over 10 years to write a book; to share a little piece of my heart and soul, the lessons that I’ve learnt and the funny way that I now view life, with anyone who feels drawn to read it.
Over the past 4 years, since becoming a Speaker & Life Coach, I’ve started it & stopped it. Thrown it in the cupboard and got it back out again. The timing just hasn’t been right. I haven’t felt ready.
For some reason, that I’m still not entirely sure about, the timing to finish it has crept upon me and must be now. Over the past 2 weeks I have not been able to stop writing in every spare moment that I get (which to be honest, is not a lot when you share your days with a gorgeous crazy active Toddler!!) However, when Billy sleeps, I write. The words are flowing quicker than my fingers can keep up with.
It’s exciting. It’s scary. It’s fun.
It’s not going to be perfect & I can’t promise it will even be worth reading!! He he :-) But what I do know & can promise is that it will be about topics that really matter. Topics that we all go through yet too often sweep under the carpet and deal with when we’re alone. Topics that I choose to speak about with hope, love and light. It’ll be from my heart and that’s all that I can ask of myself.
On Monday night my Husband said to me “Aims, you better acknowledge all those people who have contributed to you writing this. You know the people who purchased copies and put their name down for orders…like… 4 years ago!!! You better somehow thank them for waiting!!’
So…. to all the beautiful people who have ordered a copy and the incredible people who believed in me enough to pay in advance for a copy; I sincerely thank you. I thank you for your patience and for your support and I’m so bloody excited to say that it’s fiiiiiiiiiinally coming!
Thank you slow little Tortoise for reminding me that you don’t always have to go fast, you just have to keep going.
