Things Just Got Real...
ADVANCE READER COPIES JUST ARRIVED.
Troy asked me, "How do you feel?"
Hmmm...How do I feel?
And maybe just a little bit like puking.
Years of soul searching, hard work, ass-in-chair 24/7 writing days...and now it's finally about to be real.
How do I feel?
Like I've grown up a lot. Realized the patterns of my own making, learned how to break free of some of them. I grew so much through writing my essay in Dancing at the Shame Prom, and in co-editing it, and in the process of collaboration with Amy Ferris. Giving birth to that book full of amazing stories from such powerful women was huge and life changing.
Now, I feel like I am about to embark on a scary new adventure. A rollercoaster ride. And I am not a fan of roller coasters.
And I feel like I want so much for every one of you to write your stories, even if it scares you. Especially if it scares you.
I want to hear your stories.
I want to share with you my story.
Because I believe we can all help each other to heal on this journey home.
