Kind of a heavy title today. But, it's not all Doom and Gloom, I PROMISE!
It's the title of the chapter I recently wrote...
This weekend... I became a published author!! 😲
In early August, a woman leader & author reached out to me to see if I would like to take part in a project she was coordinating...
I REALLY didn't have the time... at the time. I was being pulled in a million different directions, was just leaving for a huge company event in Austin, TX, and there was NO WAY I had time to write a chapter for a book, let alone put together the thoughts that would make it compelling enough for someone else to want to read!!!
BUT... I knew I HAD TO DO IT. (What was I thinking?!?!) Well, I had to tell my story (even if it was only a portion, condensed to 2000 words or less - give or take!). I could help someone else out along the way, and that propelled me. I also had to continue to work through issues that had been following me through life - holding me BACK from being the best self I could be.
If I couldn't be my best self, then I really couldn't impact others, right?! Some things in the past may be terrifying to face head-on, but it's something you need to do, to release their grip on you! You have to WAKE UP to acknowledge what may be uncomfortable - but in the end, it's worth it!
So I sat down and WROTE. Tears and a sense of strength accompanied me as I put pen to paper - emotions rose to the surface from decades prior... Realizing some of the moments in time that helped to mold who I am today, but that they also do not define me.
I was fortunate to join with over 30 women authors from ACROSS the GLOBE... Coming together toward one goal: 💥To create a book which would INSPIRE the World!💥
On Saturday, it hit the #1 spot on the Amazon Best Seller list AND
became a #1 International Bestselling book! 😲😲😲
💥Yes. I'm still pretty excited about that!💥 It's an unbelievable feeling. 🙌
Women with many different journies toward leadership. Bursting through so many challenges, but with the same result... women that rose above, who are now an inspiration to others!
Women who were CONCEIVED TO LEAD.
I am SO HONORED to be counted among these warriors, to have included a portion of my story 🙏 , and we finally arrived at its birth into to the world!
It's both terrifying and empowering to allow yourself to be this vulnerable, but I truly do believe everyone has a story to tell... And there is someone out there that needs to read your story. 📚 It has sparked a desire to share MORE and possibly create a full-length book myself - in the hope that others may be positively impacted by my story. And to also create the desire within themselves to share THEIR story.
The Kindle & paperback versions are both available now on Amazon.
(No worries if you don’t have a kindle! There's a free app for any of your devices that gives you access to this book.) 👇👇👇
I'm feeling so full of gratitude as I contemplate everything that has gotten me to this place. My heart is full from embracing all that has taken part in this journey!! 😍
Do you KNOW you have a story within?? One that will empower others??? You do. You deserve to be your best self and you owe it to those you may help.
