Happy Wise Wednesday or or share your heart day❣️
Have a listen here and spare your eyes or read on below.
You may remember 2 weeks ago Ingrid and I had our launch party for my book RE-CREATE & CELEBRATE: 7 Steps to Turn Your Dreams Into Reality. What I didn’t tell you is right after we celebrated with my 2 pregnant girls at the Wine Adventure in Lake County, CA where we have our lake cottage. It has been a tradition for the last several years and how could we refuse having designated drivers-:)❣️
One of our stops was Lajour Winery that our friend Cheryl and Dave own, where we are members. We got Hunter our Husky/Sheppard pup dog from them 11 years ago. He’s one of 11 puppies and the best of the litter if you ask us. To know him is to love him as you all know. Aside from seeing them and tasting their great wines and food parings, I meant a woman that I heard was an author as well.
We had a wonderful connection. It turns out I recognized her name and said “we’re friends on Word Press”. She also was on T.V. for her book but it turns out she had taken her book off the market and closed her WP account because she moved into despair. She lost her kids to a cult, and was devastated. She had given up all hope and had been in despair for quite sometime. She said “I want to buy your book” and she did just that and I got amazing texts telling me that she had new hope and was re-inspired to continue on her mission. The best affirmation was seeing the text that she shared with a picture of her book with all of her notes in it, using it as I intended.
I am getting her in touch with my friends that have also known the struggles of losing their daughter to a cult and they will be in touch.
My point in sharing this with you is to share your gifts with others, things you are passionate about and know that has something to offer. You never know where or what will come of it but if you don’t share it, one thing is sure and that is you won’t make a difference anywhere. Some people think of this as bragging or selling and for some it may be just that but for others of us, we have something we want to share with the world that we think could make a difference. Think how selfish it would be it we didn’t share the gifts that we have inside of us that just might touch one person. Some of us are too afraid to share what is important to us for the fear that we will sound like we are know it alls or we are bragging. Terry Cole-Whittaker, minister of United Church of Religious Science and author of the book “What You Think of Me is None of My Business“ in 1979’s words still ring true for me. I’m reminded that I never mean to hurt anyone ever but not everyone is going to like what we have to say.
Wisdom ‘s words echo,
when hearts resonate.
Sharing truth, bearing souls,
and taking down the façade.
Listening closely to
moment to moment,
between the lines.
when words pale.
Quill in hand,
heart in throat.
We take what comes,
throw the rest to the wind,
act on hunches.
Give voice to truth,
Let the magic begin.
Thank you to all of you who have written reviews on my book tour and to those of you who have written reviews on Amazon as well! Yes, I got your Devang, thank you! Also, thanks for the newest ones, Selma from Japan, Marsha Ingrao & Vicky Lawson. I can’t tell you how much they help the book. I’m finally getting my author copies and will start meeting with book stores soon.
Here’s our launch party if you missed it and want to have a peek.
Have a wonderful Wednesday sharing your heart and message today. Trust it!
See you Friday for a tour of our near completion of our remodel, YES! Finally. Today we are painting the redwood in our living room. Sac-religious I know which is why I’ve kept them for 25 years but it’s time for change! I’m a bit nervous but fingers and toes crossed! I’ve thought long and hard and am making the plunge. Most painters walked in and wouldn’t do it but this painter said “YES, let’s do this”!
Blessings of Wisom as you share your heart,
