This week I have the opportunity to live my dream life. It will last only 3 days but I will be spending these days staying at the beach, in my friend’s beautiful condo with nothing to do but write. This is how I want to spend the rest of my life.
To all my friends who think I am positive and upbeat most of the time – I warn you – this week I will be unbearable. I will be excited, energetic, and bouncing off the walls with enthusiasm. I will tell everyone I come in contact with that absolutely anything is possible, that good things will come if you put in the effort and that they too can do whatever they set their mind to.
What I’m calling my writing retreat is possible because I have an amazing friend, with a spectacular home, who is generous enough to share this with me.
It is possible because I finally decided that I can follow my dream. By the end of this retreat I will have the draft of my book complete, ready to share with my editors, wonderful friends who will help craft it into what it is meant to be.
It is possible because my readers from here have encouraged me with your kind words and your own tales of success.
It is possible because I have set a ridiculously short deadline to keep me focused on my goal, instead of allowing time for fear and self-doubt to creep in.
It is possible because I now believe in myself. I believe in the possibilities that are available to anyone.
You have been warned.
