( This post was written in 2010 when I first self-published )
I once heard that if you aren’t the leading lady of your own life when you are just a woman, not that there is anything wrong with that but every once in a while a woman has to stand her ground.
I for one never used to be able to do that; I had become so non-aggressive that I have let so many people walk and talk all over me. I never took a stand, never spoke my mind, always afraid that the person in front of me would either laugh or just run away. I have learned lately from great motivators that life is too short and if I don’t speak up now, I will never be a leading lady.
But do I +++
Now that I have followed my dream of writing, and improving every day with tips and guides from so many well-established authors, I hope to be one of those leading ladies that inspires someone else, that wishes to follow me on my journey and become motivated and strong. I cannot emphasize enough how this book has really given me strength, courage and a newfound love for myself. When I first discovered blogging, It was not about the money but more about the voyage on my way to a new beginning.
These days, money has been included in the factor because I need a sideline that gives me the opportunity to write and create.
So for today, I wish you all love, happiness and the courage to find your leading lady. May she shine, speak up when needed and never let people navigate her life.
