Imagine how different the world would be if we each thought of ourselves as superheroes. We would live our lives very differently. Each person would have some power, some talent to share with the world to make it a better place to live. The world may not perceive any one person differently for adopting this mindset, but the person who did would live courageously and with purpose. Each day would be an adventure; they would act more nobly and perhaps even be willing to take few risks. Imagine how different the world would be if just a few people dared to live this way.
I have consciously lived my life with the understanding that I had been called here for a greater purpose. Through all stages of my life, I followed the direction of my Higher Power, even when the given direction conflicted with societal norms. There were consequences of course, but I accepted the ramifications as part of my circumstances. I was hammered with harsh judgments and had malignant criticisms hurled at me, but I survived. Each negative comment bounced off of me like bullets off superman’s chest. I persevered. Now I believe that by merely sharing my story, it will make a difference in this world. But sharing my story is not as easy as I thought.
I have my kryptonite too. No, it’s not the radioactive remains of a distance planet. It is the first draft of my first book that drains all my energy and leaves me defenseless. I am an author in my infancy. I am currently enduring the last leg of the book writing process. It’s been a grueling experience. Writing a book, like entering a sporting event, requires discipline and dedication to finish. As could be expected for my first effort, I had my challenges. I stumbled off the block, tripped up several times and suffered serious doubt all along. I am extremely fatigued, but I need to pull it together mentally, spiritually and physically to finish the last leg. My story needs to be told. Not for my benefit, but for the betterment of all of us.
To maintain focus and keep myself accountable, I decided to post a blog on my progress each week. There is boundless energy within me to research and report on many topics, but I have first to finish this book.
So the word is out. I am making myself accountable for finishing “God’s Last Warrior, the Fight for the Republic.” I am looking to have this book self-published on Amazon.com in early 2017.
