Today was the day I informed my family and friends about my upcoming book Inside Of Me. Such an exciting moment… filled with anxiety.
Oh trust me, I am so excited about this part of my chapter (life). I never imagined me being an AUTHOR. I guess it’s just the nagging thoughts in the back of my mind… Is the book going to be good enough? Will my readers like it? What will the negative feedback be like? All of those things reared its ugly head into my thoughts. But I had to remind myself. Not everyone is going to like what I do. Not everyone will ‘think’ like I do. And I am not in this to please everyone. My focus is to get the message out that depression and anxiety is a real illness that must be dealt with and talked about.
From 9 am until 4:30 pm, I have been in front of my computer. I didn’t eat nor drink anything during this time. That’s bad, I know. But my mind wouldn’t let me stop until I was finished with what I was doing (slight OCD). Even though I had a floor that needed sweeping, laundry to put up, etc… my mind was stuck on finishing one task. Well, I’m thankful because some days, it’s a task just to get out of bed.
So now that I have finally eaten a meal and opened up my new Facebook page, I’m exhausted. That 7 hour adrenaline rush has run its course. And I am pooped.
I am thankful for this day. Lord knows it could have been a bad day. But thank God it wasn’t.
Until next time … be blessed!
