Sometimes things pay off in ways I don't anticipate: recognition, awards, wins. It's fun when that happens....but it's not the reason I do what I do.
Real winners to me, are the people who stand up, do what's in their hearts and reach for their best and don't give in to fear.
This week I'm grateful for.....
-My daughter receiving a prestigious award for her humanitarian work in the community. She's a great kid....kind, giving and gentle and someone who inspires me to live my best life.
-My dgt winning the writing contest at the school board. I love that the two of us share a love of writing.
-Writing a chunk more of my latest book, The Game Player. The characters are coming alive again. For awhile it was touch and go but now, I'm running with it again. Yeah!!!!
-For people everywhere who stand up, follow their hearts, have their voice and are making a difference in other people's lives.
-Mostly - that He loved me enough to pull me out of darkness. He's the reason I wake up smiling. He's the reason I reach for my dreams. He's the reason life is so totally amazing now.
