Both of my books, women’s fiction, “Conquer All Obstacles”, and the Internet resource, “Premium Promotional Tips for Writers”, are seeing 5-Star reviews on Amazon. Sales are HIGH...and I’m THRILLED!
What is REALLY amazing is where I’ve moved. Uprooting from Saskatchewan to Vancouver Island....like, WOW! Two weeks ago, I went from minus 35 Celcius, to get off the plane to inhale the cool (NOT cold) Pacific Ocean breeze and brush the green grass beneath my runners. Moving into our NEW condo (on Crown Isle Golf Course in Courtenay) , to take Oscar for a walk just outside our doors, the Daffodils are blooming...oh, so beautiful! And, glancing out the windows of the 3rd floor, I see the world’s highest rated down-hill ski mountain, Mtn. Washington...oh so majestic.
I have to question what I see...Is this awesome paranormal view real or am I merely looking at the high-definition screen of a picture like out of a glossy magazine?
Spending a few days downtown (hanging out at just one of the many wireless java hang-outs) lead me to believe , THIS is the place for me. Smiles. Friendly town-folks ready to accommodate with a flip of the hand, “Welcome to paradise.”...without giggles, knowing they mean it. Next, I wander down 5th street—window shopping, I counted 3 bookstores. Even the local paper sections Artists (writers) as the highlight. Can life get any better?
I spent the last week purchasing new furnishings, and although the blisters from my fingertips (from swiping my VISA card) are healing, I’m basking in the ambience of modern decor. No expense spared in this complex. From stainless steel Kitchen Aide appliances to the heated marble flooring...you just got to pinch because I feel like I’m dreaming.
Others have commented , “You deserve it.”
I can only shake my head and ponder the statement. Many opportunities have occurred since I’ve ventured toward the open door. Over the last year: I had a vision and started a new business called Premium Promotional Services...had many, many VERY happy clients (http://www.premiumpromotions.biz); I published 2VERY SUCCESSFUL books; produced and hosted “Authors Articulating” on BTR where EVEN MORE opportunities have erupted; maxed out on Facebook with over 25,000 followers; and have guest blogged on many high traffic sites as ‘Expert’.
“Can life get any better?” I respond, shaking my head in disbelief.
*Conquer All Obstacles* started as a brand to strive towards has ended-up as a DREAM COME TRUE.
YOU can do it too! Have a vision? GO FOR IT...your dreams can come true.
TRUST the guidance of a higher power (or God) to see YOU through it. There’s a plan. Perhaps NOT in your time schedule; but have faith, and if it is meant to be...it will come true. *YOU CAN CONQUER ALL OBSTACLES*.
