I was so excited yesterday when my new book, Love Yourself Slimmer came in the mail, hot off the press, if you will. I ordered myself 5 copies to have on hand, and they looked so beautiful. The cover is really pretty with my logo and everything. Then with the enthusiasm of a child on her birthday, I opened up the book and sighed.
The book did not look like what I submitted to the publishing company. The worksheets were not formatted correctly, quotes were broken up, and my heart sank for a minute. I worked really hard to get my new book all pretty and it turned out kinda poopy.
Then I took a breath and decided, "Oh well, at least I wrote another book, and the information is still really good."
After that, I did go online and write an email to the company to see what we can do to get this fixed. Hopefully it will be an easy fix, but I realized that sometimes you just gotta roll with it. It will be okay. I am choosing to not get super upset about it.
I am choosing to celebrate the fact that it is out there and available for those who need it, and they won't care if it doesn't look as gorgeous as I intended it to.
I suppose it was a bit of a lesson for me to surrender to that which I have no control over really. Where can you surrender in your life? It is very freeing to do so. Takes the pressure off for sure, and it shows me where I am still acting like a control freak in my own life.
Let go, let flow is my mantra today. Until we meet again.......go forth and flow.
A few days ago I announced that my new book, Love Yourself Slimmer was released and ready for the world to read. And I was excited! I still am, but a funny thing happened just this morning that I want to talk about for a minute because maybe you can relate.
You see, I found this morning a seed of doubt creeping into my awareness around whether or not my new book is "good enough", whether people will like it or even if it will help them. I started worrying about spelling errors that I might have missed and whether or not the final product will be formatted correctly.
Just a bunch of doubt.
Ever feel this way after you do something kinda big and different? Well I definitely was (and if I am being completely honest, still am just a bit). And you know what? It is okay. I would venture to say that this feeling is kinda normal even. Anytime you step outside of your comfort zone, there will be doubt. It didn't stop me from writing the book, so that is a good thing.
A lot of times, doubt and fear can be so strong that we don't even get out of the gate with our ideas. I am here to tell you that doubt and fear will always be around when you are up-leveling and making your dreams a reality. And that is perfect. Be careful to not allow those doubts and fears to paralyze you though. That is just your ego wanting guarantees that everything will be perfect.
But I challenge you to just enjoy the journey. You will not be the same person at the end of your quest. Enjoy the experience. Learn. Grow. Laugh. And just go for it. You will never know if you never try how wonderful your life can actually be.
Anyway, I wanted to share that we all go through it, and you are never alone. I am here for you if you need to talk. I know you can do anything you choose to do. I support you in your vision of awesomeness.
Until we meet again.
Hey everyone! It has been a while for me to write a blog post. Funny how life takes you in other directions sometimes. I have been busy writing my third book!! This book idea dropped into my awareness while I was on an online group coaching call. It just plopped into my noggin, and the rest is history.
Love Yourself Slimmer, the Energetic Approach to Releasing Weight is the culmination of years of work with private clients and frankly myself. I am always a guinea pig for my own healing practices. This book is about cultivating more love of self so that you can release the weight with more ease. This is not a diet. This is not an exercise regime. This is not any of those things, but it is a deep dive into you, your beliefs, your emotions, your internal programming.
This book is like no other book out there on the topic of weight loss. I am so excited to present this book to you (and the world) if you have ever or currently struggle with your weight. Please check it out here and let me know what you think!!
Until we meet again, here's to your health and wellness!!
Oh and because I love to give energy healing, I have also created an energy healing bundle that goes along nicely with the book. You can check it out here.
