Since it's the end of the week, I wanted to share something rather personal because I think it can help. These are the original notes (written 4 weeks after my mom passed away) in 2008 spelling out EXACTLY what I wanted to do for a book series; a life long dream that, at the time, was just that. I got chills reading this sloppy mess when I accidentally found it today, to be honest. And that's because I can remember every emotion, every uncertainty, every feeling that was caged inside my body during that time. Honestly, reader...? I really didn't think the sun was going to rise anymore for those few weeks after I lost the most important person in my life - it felt like every day was the last day on the planet. Yet, for some crazy reason, this "idea" for a series gave me renewed hope - almost like I could hear my mom telling me to wake the hell up and make my life the way I wanted it to be. I guess what I'm trying to say is... if you're going through something right now, or in the future... I can ASSURE you; the sun ALWAYS rises again 🦁❤️You just have to keep moving forward. Always.
