Woah 11000 words and counting in my coffee table book!!!

I wrote a chapter at length about this for my book. (which by the way I’d love some title hints !!!) I am now at more than 11000 words and for my first draft I am aiming at somewhere around 50,000, which means as the editing comes in it’ll increase a bit in size I imagine. I am quite fond of how it’s coming along, there is a lot of heart going into these chapters, all are very carefully thought through and I’ve used a lot of great wisdom and lessons I’ve been taught and have learned over the years to share along and throughout. The book I’m writing will be quite sweet in a way that you can pick it up, read a chapter for sparkly inspiration and then put it back on your coffee table until the next day. I am truly excited about it.

Sometimes life takes us down some challenging roads for a reason. Reasons usually fairly unknown to us initially but when the light bulb does go off and we catch on to what our TRUE reason for living is and our mission ought to be, it all of a sudden becomes seriously beautiful and full of sparkles, no matter how many stressful, anxious moments you face along the way there is that deep joy ┬áthat comes from faith. Faith that the Universe does have your back and will always provide you with all the things you need to succeed, if you’re just willing to watch for the signs.

The Universe tends to always be ready for us, no matter how much time we spend doddling or not staying on a specific road, it’s always there waiting patiently with our destined plan. When we’re ready and willing it’s there to guide us and send us the assistance we need giving us the hints and wisdom to follow our dreams. Along the way, just remember to not let your ego get in the way and make tons of roadblocks preventing you from recognizing even that mistakes can be beautiful lessons that can be used to grow towards amazing heights in your spirituality and towards your goals. If you can remember to keep your faith and keep looking towards Love, then this really stressful stretch in your life will become a stretch of great lessons, joys and full of sparkly adventures.
