Dream Time

29 06 2009

Are you running in frantic circles? Have too much to do and not enough time? While you’re here, I hope you’ll take a deep breath and calm your racing heart. Ask yourself: If I wanted to be supremely happy at the end of the day, what three things should I accomplish?

Examine your to-do list. How many items are expectations others put on you? How many items are on there because of your guilty conscience? How many because you want to please other people? Cross off as many of those things as you can–without doing them. Don’t you feel lighter, less burdened, happier?

Count how many things on your list will lead you to your dreams. Focus on where you want to go, what you want to be, and how you’d like to get there. But make sure each day your list has at least one thing, however small, that moves you in the direction of your dreams.

Living your dreams takes courage. If you need more courage, see Finding Courage (below). And always schedule some time to rest, to daydream. Just as your body needs sleep for renewal, your mind and spirit need time to rest, to daydream, to be creative, to learn new things.

I hope you’ll also take some time to smell the roses. Twenty Wild Rose Press authors have banded together to present you with a bouquet of beautiful flowers. A special interlude for you to relax and enjoy.

You can mosey to all the blogs, meandering from one to the other in an hour or so. Or you can stretch it out over the twenty-four hours. Either way, if you leave a comment at each one, you’ll have a chance to win 20 different prizes.

I got an email from my publisher last night. Summer Lovin’ is out in print already. Official release date was to be July 10, so it’s several weeks ahead of schedule. Yay!! I already ordered some author copies. Now all I have to do is get some booksignings and other events set up.

I also heard back from a writer friend today. For several years now, we’ve been toying with the idea of co-authoring a non-fiction book. She ran the idea past her agent, who sounds interested. All we need to do is come up with a FRESH angle on the subject. Easy enough. Right??

I’m starting to wonder…will I ever have time to breathe??
