Speaking fever

I have observed an interesting phenomenon in my life as of late. Ever since my speaking engagement at the Heart Centred Women in Business Conference on Oct 9th, I am revered to as a professional.

My book is not yet finished, but there is no question about its legitimacy and quality when it will be finished. But what pleases me the most is that whenever I meet someone new or I see someone I haven’t seen in a long time, there seems to be an agreement that I am already an established writer. In fact one of the most common things I hear is ‘I would also love to write/quit my job/find my purpose in life, but I haven’t gone as far as you yet!’ This pleases me on two levels: on one level because it makes me realise how far I’ve actually come and on another level because I am suddenly someone from their immediate universe they can completely relate to. I remember that I’ve spent years of uncertainty, mixed with guilt and unhappiness, being in a career I didn’t love and not allowing myself to think that writing was something I was justified to pursue, until when finally decided last year to invest my focus and energy into writing, finding love and a life purpose.

I still have a long way ahead of me, I know. But I also know that once I’ve made my decision things progressed in geometrical proportion. I have no doubt that a year from now my life will be even more different and even more exciting. And for now I have the Uncoventional Convention on the 7th December to look forward to!
