There’s nothing quite like the tender excitement of holding your own book in your hands for the first time! A package of books arrived from the United States. My heart danced as I sliced the cardboard box open. There they lay. Gleaming covers singing the title “Pebbles in the Pond: Transforming the World One Person at a Time”. I reached out and touched a book. I fanned the pages, filled with gratitude for the whole experience. My thanks flew outward to Christine Kloser for putting the project together, to my co-authors, to my family for their support. Page 210! I found my Chapter, Born Free. There I was, in print!
When Christine Kloser’s invitation to be part of the anthology Pebbles in the Pond: Transforming the World One Person at a Time arrived in my inbox, a certain “Yes!” bubbled up from deep inside me. I was excited by the concept, and I knew I had to be part of the Pebbles positive wave for change!
I jumped at the opportunity to add my voice to Pebbles in the Pond in the form of a chapter from my life. At the lowest point in my life I was a single mom to my tiny, perfect baby daughter. I was alone and isolated on a seventeen-acre farm, in the throes of a dark depression and a numbing fear. I moved forward from that barren, cruel time to create a life that delights me and makes a difference to many others.
I believe it is our vulnerability and willingness to share that make us most lovable. Sharing our personal stories to connect, educate, entertain, and make sense of our realities is an ancient and powerful form of communication deeply imprinted on the human psyche. It’s a way to expand perspectives and share opinions – a means of understanding ourselves and the way we construct and deconstruct our lives. Storytelling is how we remember, how we forget, and how we begin again.
Writing for Pebbles gave me an opportunity to share my sacred seven-step blueprint for happiness and success. If the life you are living is not as you want it to be, I hope you will use this blueprint to shift gears more quickly and easily than I did. It is entirely possible to find the strength, courage, and resources within to transform your life.
