You are truly out of excuses, now. The Summer is almost over and the kids will be in school in two weeks.
Remember how as a young child and as a teen your dreams were huge? When you graduated from High School, you planned to retire as a millionaire at the age of 35. Remember when you graduated from Middle School, you planned to write a play and then see it on stage. As an Elementary school boy or girl you saw that special girl you fell for; that boy you fell for, and you’re still childhood sweethearts. Those poems you wrote about her; and those letters you wrote to him.
It’s time, my friend, to make those dreams a reality: A collections of poetry, a journal of inspirational sayings; that book you’ve written and haven’t gotten published. That thesis or dissertation. Get the point? Don’t stop dreaming, stop making excuses. I’m here for you, to help make those dreams a reality.
My husband lost his twin brother in the early 90s. This past Saturday, he lost his older brother. He is the last sibling and I am sure his heart is full of great memories of his brothers. Interesting how death makes memories come to the forefront. Good memories are wonderful “keepsakes.”
Memories begin with,
- I remember when we were all kids and…
- Oh yeah, remember that time when Mom and Dad took us to…
- Once we went to the zoo and…
- I’ll never forget the time when Uncle came to help…
How can we brings those types of memories to life? A biography, devotional or even a book of poetry pays great homage and honor to your memories and makes you smile even when the heart is sad. When you complete your literary work, you will be able to say, “THOSE WERE GOOD TIMES.”
With all of your good memories of those you love, I’m here for you.
It’s Worth Editing
As a child, one of my daughters did whatever her little heart desired. She kicked her dad right in the shin. Why? She just wanted to. She was choking on something—I tried Heimlich—nothing seemed to work—the real problem: a small pack of salt she had found and dumped into her mouth. The remedy: a sip of water. She tried almost anything. She was daring—NOTHING WAS OFF LIMITS. I worried about her. She is in her thirties now and has written and published three books and a short story. She has two weekly online radio programs and is going strong. She maintained that daring attitude and nothing is off-limits.
I DARE you to finish that story and then I DOUBLE DARE you to get it published. (I’ll edit it for you). There’s a world of topics and a secret desire you’ve held onto for so long. Go on. I DARE YOU!
There are so many fakes in the world. But you are not one of them. So, with that in mind, whatever you endeavor to do, please do it with all your heart! Do it with all your soul! Do it with all your might! It’s not easy. Nothing worth anything is easy. It is just worth it! I look forward to hearing from you.
