A few friends were talking about all my upcoming events and such and one commented on how “all of a sudden” I popped up over Social Media with my book and now I have the book tour, I am preparing for workshops and book signings and book readings and speaking gigs and more. the person next to us said, “Oh, I assure you, it did not happen overnight!” Then we all laughed and he replied, “Well, you make it look easy”
Funny thing is, I have heard that about my fabulous attitude as well. People always tell me how easy I make overcoming look. How simple I make it all sound. How streamlined I seem to have it and how I embody the term “You’ve Got This!”
Here is the reality behind all of that…
It didn’t happen overnight.
I have a friend who has known me since high school, Ed. I speak about him in my book a few times. Ed could attest to all the hard times, all the trials, all the adversities I have been through and overcome. He could attest to watching me suffer through a meth addiction. He could attest to me struggling for custody of kids and the heartbreak it caused me and my marriages. He could attest to my issues with men, high school, and becoming an adult amidst all the craziness in my world. He could attest to this struggles in my home, work, and life. Ed could share my stories almost as easily as I probably could.
It wasn’t until 2009 that I started to wake up.
In 2011, I took the first online Soul Restoration course from Brave Girls.
That launched off a series of other transformational blogs, courses, groups, and people.
By 2014 I finally was on the right track. My life was bliss.
In 2015 we moved to Colorado.
In 2016, I was diagnosed with Colon Cancer.
I am not one who feels life is perfect.
I am not perfect.
I am perfect in my imperfections.
I accept and allow now.
I see the silver lining.
I have learned how to handle the rocks life throws at me.
I realize life isn’t pretty and perfect, but I am thankful to be here and I am a realist and optimist. I see life for what it is, but still able to hope for something better for myself, others and the world.
Don’t get down on yourself if you are not quite where you want to be.
Fabulous doesn’t happen overnight.
Things take time.
Overcoming is an art.
I fell into fabulous for you.
My story and my workbook were created with YOU in mind.
You have the option to choose.
In every moment, every minute, every day…we always have the option to choose fabulously, so…
“When given the option of being fabulous, why would you choose anything else?”
