Making My Story A Reality
After a day of feeling a degree of overwhelm, I realised I need to do some fresh prioritising or this book would never be finished
In stepped my beach coach, Des. We were walking on the beach and I was sharing my current lack of progress. Des came up with the plan for me to be accountable on a weekly basis.
There is part of me that doubts the value of my journey for others. Des reminded me:
You overcame this, if you hadn’t had that positive attitude and total belief that you were going to be healed, it might have overcome you. I said I might still be on dialysis. Des said I might not be here 🙂
That was my wake up moment. I so often forget the seriousness of the kidney failure I had. It takes Des and my freinds to remind me. I often think that what I did was no big thing!
It was very quickly clear to me that completing and publishing my book, Lucky to Be Alive: How I used the Power of Self Love to Safe my Life, had to be high on my list of priorities.
Maybe even the top priority.
I realise that regular readers of this blog might think, “Haven’t we read this before?”, and while I can’t think of a specific blog post to that effect, the reaction would be understandable.
But now I’m putting it out there that this time my commitment is quite serious. I’m reviewing my plan for completing the writing and scheduling the editing, publication, and marketing elements of the plan.
I’m taking some steps to hold myself accountable to get this done.
One of those steps is to post a weekly update on progress with the book, and I’ll do that even if in my own mind, or in fact, I haven’t made great progress in a specific week.
One idea I am playing with is that in those weekly posts I want to include some excerpts from the book as I’m writing. I’m not sure if that will work, but I want to try it.
So many people have asked me when the book will be available and some of my friends have urged me to just get on with it! I’m very clear that I will soon be able to share with them and the world a realistic timeframe for that.
What would help would be for you, dear reader, and other readers of this blog, to share your comments and any questions or ideas, as I post my weekly updates.
If you want to be part of the journey and get the weekly updates Plus opportunity to get a review copy join in here: ( you will only get updates from me about the book, unless you are on my Heart Whisper Ezine list.)

What’s the burning question you have for me?
I look forward to reading your comments .
All my love
