I spoke with a life coach yesterday, sharing my excitement about a variety of things, including the launch of my debut novel PAINTING LILY.
Her response to me was "don't be so excited."
WHAT? That flew in the face of my usual approach to life. OF COURSE I am excited. Why wouldn't I be? Or more direct to her comment, why shouldn't I be?
What she said next blew me away.
"Getting so ridiculously excited makes it sound like you are surprised that everything is going so well. OF COURSE the book is becoming a reality. OF COURSE you are meeting with success in the other areas of your business and personal life. Why are you surprised?"
Talk about a life changing way of looking at the world. So yes, I am still excited, but I am also learning to say OF COURSE more often. And when I do, I hear it as a code word for two other favorite words of mine. THANK YOU.
Thank you to each one of you who has already pre-ordered a copy of PAINTING LILY. Thank you to each one of you who has provided support and encouragement to me along the way.
Now let's party on June 14 at the launch party.
Will we have fun? OF COURSE we will!
Thoughts, dreams, questions.
