Finally finishing the first draft of my book was a dream come true. I never expected those two little words (THE END) to result in such euphoria and I think those of you who have been following my journey may even have gotten a little caught up in the excitement yourselves. But now I have something else to share with you, something even bigger, if you can believe that there is such a thing.
The last few months have been a very creative, spiritual and inspirational period for me. With the time and space to reflect, I’ve had a chance to work out what is important to me and to visualise where I want to be going forward. I have experienced a greater level of self-awareness and, incredibly, a much greater awareness of the opportunities and possibilities that surround each and every one of us, if only we would just open our eyes and look. After four months of freedom to pursue my heart’s desires, I have made a very big decision: I will not be returning to the rat race. Period.
Pushing my book through to publication is going to be a huge task, but with my mind working overtime, constantly generating new ideas, I feel excited and empowered enough to fully commit myself to the pursuit of my own projects when I return to the UK next month. Some sacrifices are going to have to be made in the short term, but hey, you don’t get something for nothing, right?
For now, all I will say is that 2013 should see me publish my debut novel and launch not one, but two businesses. Exciting times!
Here’s hoping that, whoever you are, and wherever you are, 2013 is the year that you make your dreams a reality too.
