I did something big. I wrote a book. I self published it. And it came today.
I have always wanted to write. I talked about it for years. Then one day, a few months ago, mys husband said stop talking, get writing.
At a loss what to write about, I told him I would write him a short meditation for 30 days. Just to get myself going. And perhaps to convince him all this meditation and yoga I do has merit.
It turned out to be more inspiring than I ever expected. I almost quit….after a few days I told myself I was being silly and to not be so self involved to think I could write a book…I think this was also the voice that used to tell me to not be so silly, I didn’t have a drinking problem, as I drank wine from a mug.
But then my other voice took over, and reminded me that I have done some pretty hard things, and that I was just as worthy of book writing as The next person.
So I did the 30 day. And I put it together. And I loved it. So I self published it. I plan to sell it at my yoga classes, and maybe go to a local store and see if they are interested in carrying it. It is for anyone. And everyone.
When I first quit drinking I went to a yoga class one day and picked an intention card that said “you are on the right path.” It was exactly what I needed to hear that day, and that card is still in my wallet.
Holding my book I realize I am truly on the right path.
Stillness and peace
