An Aha Moment!

An aha moment!

An aha moment and what sparked it?

It was about a months ago, on a sunny brisk day a friend and I went on one of our walks and we always incorporate a big hill or two.  I always pray when I go up a hill or mountain it brings me close to God and as I paced myself up I said my grateful list and then let myself be directed where I am spiritually to go.  It just so happened the subject of joy came up and I said “God, I miss my joy.”  I had been happy for quite a while now.  I have a roof over my head, food on plate, my lovely Hayliegh and quality friends in my life, and then there is the book!

  In the process of working on landing an agent and/or publisher I started to lose my happiness.  I shared with God that I had missed me.  Then the aha moment, I realized I was giving “things” more power then what really matters. My book is important, but I am not the book and if it gets picked up I will be ecstatic if it doesn’t I am still enough.  What is amazing is I am working on the process of having my manuscript picked up, and in the meantime I am smiling and enjoying the ride.

    This is such an important Aha, Kim. It’s so easy to “lose” yourself when you get really involved in a project. I guess that’s why taking a break for something like a walk is such a good idea. It lets you reconnect with yourself, restore your balance, and remember what’s important. Thanks for the reminder.
