As the Writer I am, I also am a Reader. I can be quite discerning when it comes to who I enjoy completely. And it’s good to be picky about what we read. I sample more than I finish by way of previews and standing in bookstores and flipping through books whose titles, covers, subjects or authors called me to do so.
I take the best and I leave the rest. And I know it influences my own writing over time.
There are three big reasons I “really, really, really” love this man Paulo Coelho, (who has 8.1 Mil FB fans for good reasons–and what about all the fans who don’t do FB).
Please take a moment to scan his bio…it is quite inspiring to me. Every time I read it.
One could say these things about him ( I do!):
1. He was a late bloomer who had some early rough patches in determining WHO he was and wanted to be.
2. He gives back, so much.
3. He does what he loves and it shows.
I invite you to consider making whatever change it takes to be “being” your best self!
What is required to make it happen for you?
Do you have the right support to see it through the patches of resistance?
I believe as Deepak Chopra does (by definition in his book Creating Affluence (a longtime favorite of mine) that D is for Dharma and Dharma never feels like work.
(To be doing what I do for a livelihood is quite simply a dream realized that I have imagined since 9 years old.)
It’s never too late to start “being” what you always wanted to be. I may never be as well-known as Coelho, BUT I will be able to say I was a working ~ loving ~ living writer and mentored others into loving their own written and spoken voice. And that reality warms my heart to write, to say, to be and to share.
One late bloomer to another, may you in divine time, fulfill your Dharma in this lifetime.
