Welcome to Day 63...
So I had a real Deja vu moment this morning. I was in the parking lot of my son's high school waiting for his football practice to end.
The school was also hosting some type of field day for the local CCD (Catholic religious ed) programs and there were scores of young kids with their families there. As I sat in my car waiting for my sixteen year old, 6'3 son, I watched young parents walking with their kids and pushing strollers and I had the overwhelming thought...that was us 10 years ago.
Where did the time go?
The thing is I usually don't get so retrospective. I mean life is so busy, some weeks I can barely catch my breath. I know time is forging on and the kids are getting big and gaining more independence, but there was something jarring about sitting there seeing a life play out that I lived almost a decade ago.
So I get it. Life moves. Fast.
Interestingly enough, there was something else that happened this morning and I'm still trying to figure out if there is some cosmic tie in.
I woke up early, just after 4am and my brain was flooded with some branding ideas. They were a bit off-the-beaten-track for an author who writes romantic suspense. It was all about a springboard to launch me out there a bit - which would hopefully give me a platform to get my books out to a larger audience. I don't want to reveal too much about it yet, because while the idea is definitely intriguing, it'll involve a lot of work so I need to see how it all fits with finishing my current book - Never Let Me Go and the marketing path/ideas I've had up until now.
But here's the thing about all this...I do recognize that sometimes your Super Brain and your intuition will take you where you never expected to go and when this concept came to me, it was so flushed out and specific, it 's now actually hard to ignore it. Not to mention the impact of my flashback this morning.
Anyway I'm going to let it settle in for a few days. Maybe you have an idea you've been toying with as well. A big idea...so big, it's scary and thrilling at the same time.
Well for both of us then, I'm sharing Today's Takeaway Lesson...
"If Not Now. Then When?"
Here's to Being All In,
