I don’t know what it feels like to be strapped into the seat at the top of a rocket or space shuttle about to launch, but I feel like maybe what I’ve experienced today as I have wound down the last 24 hours toward the launch of my first book… a dream thirty plus years from inception to reality… might be close.
What started in my heart all those years ago, turned into passionate pursuit about a year ago. Blogging, writing, learning, researching, creating, building a team, testing, editing, re-writing… re-writing… re-writing, marketing, and more.
And today has been spent hanging out with friends and family who have been so sweet to cheer me on. I feel like one of those astronauts walking out and waving to the crowd as I prepare to board the spaceship for the trip of a lifetime. Now, in less than an hour, the countdown will hit zeroes, and this thing will take off… blasting me toward my celestial mission.
Special thanks to all those who have played a part in getting me to this point. And special thanks to all those who will believe in me enough to buy the book. And special thanks to all those who will leave reviews, recommend to friends, and share with their own team what they learn.
I don’t know if this is a big deal to most folks, but I know that I’m excited to share… to encourage… to help… to boost… to inspire someone else to grow into all they can be and go for their own dreams.
I know that God has set me up to enjoy this wonderful experience. His Word says that haven’t seen, heard or even imagined all the good stuff He has planned for us!
So, I may have butterflies in my stomach, but I have anticipation in my mind and joy in my heart as I buckle in for this ride that I once thought was reserved only for others. And oh, what a ride this is going to be… in T minus…
