A friend recommended the book A Million Miles in a Thousand Years


Have you read it? If not, you should.

It's crazy how certain books can really strike a chord, really hit you. This one has touched me.

It's basically about our lives as stories; stories we write. And that we have the power to write better stories.

What I take away from it is that I want my story, my life story, to be epic

I want the world to be a changed place because I was here. I want to raise my boys to be good men. I want to have not just a good marriage, but an amazing one. I want to write books that make people feel, that give people hope, that people will still be reading 100 years from now. I want to qualify for Boston and be #1 on the NY Times bestseller list. I want to live on that ranch in Montana and make memories with my family...Epic.

Sure, these are big crazy goals. From the outside looking in they may appear downright impossible. I may fall short of some of them. Who knows for sure. But if I don't even try? I will absolutely fail. And I will always wonder...what if?

I don't want regret to be part of my story.

Good-Bye Self-Limiting Beliefs

I haven't been around this blog much, been working on my others a lot. Hoping for great things for this shiny-hopefilled-gonnabefanfriggintastic 2011. With my writing (as a career and not just a hobby) and so much more. I have big goals, big dreams, big plans and I am believing they will ALL come true this year. I can see it, I can taste it!

One thing I have realized recently is that I have limited myself so much in my life, and yet I had no idea I was doing it. Self-limiting beliefs have been a big battle for me. With my thoughts and what I believed possible for myself I have been holding myself back! But now that I see them and I realize the power I've given them, I can fight back. I can simply refuse to give them that power anymore. No more limiting myself, just no more. I'm a smart, talented, full of life woman. I am capable of more than I ever imagined! Anything is possible, really, anything.

This is my year. My year to throw off those self limiting beliefs and step into what I am truly capable of. My year to believe in myself and push harder than I have ever allowed myself before. My year to believe in the impossible. To be the person I truly believe I am meant to be. 

Hold on tight, it's going to be quite the ride!
