It’s finally the day! The day I, like many other authors, am always excited about. It’s release day! The day where dreams come true. The day where we wrap our hard work into a spiffy package and set it out in the middle of an ordinary day, hoping that others stop for a second to enjoy a little piece of our soul.
It’s intimidating, exhilarating, nerve-wracking, humbling . . . The list can go on for weeks, for months. And it does. It’s like riding a rollercoaster, feeling the highs, the lows, the twists, and the loops. At times, there is no greater feeling. And others, no worse.
But that’s what creativity is all about.
It’s about self-expression and dreams. Doing what you love and sharing it with others. The highs.
The tough part is learning to understand that not everyone is the same as you. Not everyone will enjoy your self-expression. Not everyone will enjoy your dreams.
That’s what makes it difficult. The lows.
Accepting it all and continuing to create is a choice many take because they love the whole ride!
And I do too! So here we go again.
