I Manifested one of my Biggest Dreams

A few years ago, I manifested something.  I am a huge believer in the Law of Attraction, I have vision boards, and I truly believe in the concept of Ask, Believe, Receive.  One of my huge dreams/goals/vision board items was to be a published author.  Now here’s the thing, the law of attraction wasn’t going to write a book for me, edit it, design a cover and submit it for publication.  And I think that’s an important thing to remember.   If you want to manifest a healthy body – you are still the one that is going to have to eat better and exercise.  The Law of Attraction will maybe be bringing you the will power to do it.

So as I said, one of my biggest life dreams was to write a book and I did it.  The Law of Attraction helped me to find my muse.  Led me to and editor, helped me find someone to do the kindle formatting and helped me upload it to Amazon Direct Publishing and voila – book on kindle.

In the interim, I took a couple of writing classes and that brought me other options.  I learned about an amazing resource called Draft 2 Digital.   By using Draft 2 Digital, I was able to upload my book to sites other than Amazon, including Barnes and Noble, Apple, and Kobo.  Am I raking in the bucks?  No of course not, and that’s okay.  Fulfilling a dream isn’t necessarily about getting rich.

I will be honest, I have since started two other books, one was a companion to my original book, Thinking Positive:  Take the Journey into Positivity . That book is almost a third of the way done on the first draft. The other is a work of fiction, and several chapters are written. I was making steady progress on both, when covid happened.

Now most people would think that being forced to stay home would mean plenty of time to write.  Oh how I wish that were true.  I’m a teacher so last spring was spent trying to figure out how to teach online and worse, trying to figure out how to make kids want to learn online.   That was hard and literally sucked the life out of me and every other teacher I know!  I spent my summer participating in trainings to learn how to be a better teacher both online and off and then boom, we were back in school.  First we were remote, then teachers were in school and kids were home, then we were remote.  Then we were back and some kids were back.  Then we were remote, then we were back and slowly phasing kids in for hybrid learning.   Now we are back in hybrid model, a group of kids in  on Monday/Tuesday, Wednesday is remote for all, and a different group of kids in Thursday/Friday.  It is EXHAUSTING and leaves very little time for anything else, least of all, writing.

A friend of mine who is not a fan of the Law of Attraction  felt that this lack of writing for me was proof that the Law of Attraction was nothing but bull.  But to me, it’s the exact opposite because my ideas are still there, and the desire is still there, and best of all, the time will be there, when the time is right.

Hold fast to your dreams.  Ask the universe for what you want, and believe it will happen – and most important, be open to the different ways it CAN happen.

I Need Your Opinions Please

Opinions Needed

Hi Everyone – I need your opinions please.  As you know, I recently published my little book.  I’m really excited that I did that, and I’m really proud of myself for reaching a goal and living a dream.  Reaching for your goals and achieving your dreams is something I truly believe in.  The book I wrote is called Thinking Positive Take the Journey into Positivity and it’s available on Amazon.

Now here’s where you come in.  I’m working on another book, fiction this time, which may or may not ever get finished.  Well not any time soon because my position in my school has changed and I have a much larger case load now with kids I know nothing about.  There is a large learning curve going on.  Added to that, I’m currently taking two classes online to get another teaching certification.

If anybody knows anything about macroeconomics, drop me a line because this class is  struggle for me.

Okay on to the opinion portion of our program.  I came up with an idea for a companion to my Thinking Positive book.  I’d like to make a companion journal with prompts and such to help people increase their own positive thoughts.  What do you think? Is this a good idea?  Sound off in the comments, or shoot me an email to thinkpos30@gmail.com.  I really do want to know what you think.  You all have been with me from the beginning and your thoughts and opinions matter to me.
