Hello my lovely blogging friends. I know I’ve been missing in action all of last week. I just needed a total break from blogging, an unplugging from this part of my life in that sense. Not that I don’t appreciate you (you don’t know how much I do appreciate all of you), but I simply had to focus on some other parts of my life.
Today I’m back and I’d love to share something with you that is incredibly close to my heart. And I thought why not use the Tell Me Something Good posts to do so. So let’s kick off this week with something positive.
• Mention something that you consider being good in the comments
• Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below). Something good that happened to you recently, or something good you will experience in a little while, or something good you know will happen soon. Something that makes you feel good.
• Share this post and invite your followers as well.
You know it by now! We are not moving any further without a little happy dance. It really doesn’t matter which style of dancing you like. Just do it. Just dance! Enjoy yourself 🙂
Come on, don’t go down without a proper “fight”! I challenge you: Dance-off time! Let’s do this!
And when you are done here is what I’d like to share with you today:
“For all my life I always thought that my dad’s life is worth a book. He had no ordinary life. It’s seriously an incredible story and it would be a shame to not tell it. But I simply wasn’t brave enough to start writing it. A couple of years ago I met with a guy who is sort of into mentoring authors but it never really led to anything. But I remember how we talked about our families and he mentioned how writing a book about his mom actually helped him to write books. I couldn’t relate really. He then said ‘you should do it. Who better to tell your dad’s story?’…
See, I thought my dad’s story is too big for me to write. Over the last couple of years though I met all kind of wonderful people from all walks of life and so many told me to write his story. But there was this voice in my head. It kept me from starting. There was the fear that I would not be good enough. Well… until now. Or better until last week. I started. And boy, did it feel good. So if I’m missing in action again here, please note that I’m not leaving all of you. I’m writing. I’m writing a story that is very important to me. And I want to focus on it.
You will see me here. I’m not leaving. And I will keep you posted because you should totally read his story when I’ve finished writing it…”
