Saturday, May 2nd I hosted a small reception for a few friends and enthusiastic supporters to celebrate my new book, What Was Missing. I plan on having a larger event later this summer but I wanted to do something to commemorate the book release.
The event was held at The Woman's Earth Nurturing Studio in Houston. On the menu chicken pesto pasta, chocolate chip cookies and delicious vegan cupcakes. Along with infused water and mixed berry punch.
LCD Photobooth provided fun photobooth services and I did a reading from the books as well as signed some of the purchased copies.
It was a fun filled afternoon and I was overwhelmed by the love and support from those in attendance! This entire journey has been a humbling experience and I have learned SO MUCH!! I feel this entire experience has changed me forever. (In a good way!)
If you have purchased a copy of the book, I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart and I can't wait to hear your thoughts! Stay tuned for information on the next author event I am planning. ;-)
(Here are a few photo's, sorry if I missed anyone. . .)
I don't have many fears. Except of dogs charging at me, frogs, rats or snakes touching me and recently airplane turbulence has started to make me all kinds of anxious. So maybe I have a few.
But outside of that, I'm just not generally a fearful person. Suspicious yes. Fearful no. However I've recently discovered a hidden fear. . .a fear that has actually kept me driven all these years and I didn't even know it.
The fear of mediocrity. Mediocrity is defined as, "the quality or state of being mediocre." Mediocre is defined as, "of moderate quality, not very good." In other words: AVERAGE. Nothing special. Blah. Bleh. Meh.
That truly terrifies me. I've lived on this planet for four and a half decades (hopefully many more to come) and I should just be plain, ordinary and nothing special?? I don't think so! My goal is excellence and even when I fall short, I feel I've learned, grown and experienced so much that my time here was definitely worthwhile.
