Your dream of writing a novel can be realized, today.
Who are you, really ? Do you define yourself by your occupation ? Your family position ? Life experiences ?
I am a Certified Life Coach, a writing coach and an author. But I am also an artist, poet, mother, sister, daughter, partner, traveler, seeker, lover of beauty, adventure and truth. I am a former interior designer, college instructor, yoga instructor, massage therapist, banker, and administrative assistant.
Why does that matter ? Because, by example, YOU are more than what you do or have done, who you live with, love or left behind.
YOU are a complicated, fascinating, one of a kind, living, breathing miracle. YOU are an artist, born to create, whether you describe yourself that way to strangers or not. YOU have something to share with the world; it is unique, extraordinary and a gift only YOU can share.
How long have you wanted to write "that" book ?
I talk to clients who have wanted to write all their lives. Or perhaps have tried it from time to time, but never been able to finish what they started.
Sometimes « life » insists we make room for what we must do by minimizing the things we want to do.
In my own efforts to follow the « right » path, it took me too long to get to this place. That doesn't have to be your story. Bringing your dreams to life doesn’t require giving up everything you have created to this point.
You may have put in years obtaining your degree, pursuing your career or raising a family, or both. You sacrificed to be where you are now. You worked hard. You have done well. And still, it may not be the culmination of where you want to be, yet.
