Many people go through life doubting their dreams will ever come to fruition as they haven’t yet so they modify their dream. Having a plan b, c, and d as back up so they can settle for what they feel they can achieve or deserve.

And then there are people like me. Those who have one objective and will do everything in our power to make it reality. Personally, I know I’ll be a full time author when the universe feels it’s the right time. I work diligently every day quieting that doubtful internal voice with positive thoughts and louder affirmations.

I Admit, Sometimes I Lose

I am not always confident. My “fake it till I make it” routine quivers and I fall but I always get back up, even if I’m down for awhile and it seems hopeless. It takes a while and a lot of concentration, sometimes I depend on others and other times I realize only I can rely on myself.

That’s difficult to do, relying on myself, when all a writer wants is readers. No matter how many times I read my own book it’s not the same satisfaction as when a stranger does. Whether or not they like it, that’s not the point, it’s the readers I crave.

I Don’t Have a Plan B

People tell me all the time that author’s don’t make enough to do what they love all the time. It’s just not realistic to think following your heart will work out and yet every time I hear this I get stronger.

We exist and we are all different, that alone to me is a miracle and if we are just here to follow someone else’s lead/ plan why then are we not all the same? My Plan A is all I have and I will prove to you, someday, that’s the only plan I need.

What do you have planned?

Thanks for reading,
