A Day of Wins.

In many ways, today was the first stress-free day I’ve felt in a long time.  I finished my last day as an assistant and, as I was walking out of the office I smiled and took a deep breath, closing my eyes and inhaling deeply.  Maybe I did love that job, but I knew the timing wasn’t right.  I let the intoxicating smell of spring flowers fill my nose.

I felt so free.

Free to go home and focus on my kids, my family, my house and  my future as a writer.  It felt liberating beyond words.

I opened my eyes to find the most beautiful yellow and black swallowtail butterfly  soaring past me.  It was so close that I could have reached out and touched it’s delicate wings, but I didn’t.  Instead I watched it dart back, forth, up and down.  I smiled to myself knowing it was surely a sign that I’d made the right choice.  A sign that brighter, more beautiful things were on the horizon.

Then after returning home I got a message from an old friend who wanted to put something together for my book cover.

I was beside myself and beyond grateful for the offer.  So, I explained what I was thinking of and not even two hours later I am looking at the perfect cover for my book.

My book is finally REALLY coming together.  I have edited, re-edited and edited again.  I have let my peers read it and offer criticism.  I started establishing myself as a writer online and now, today, I received artwork for my cover.

I am over the moon.  Today was full of wins.

Thank you, Chris.
