On yesterday’s blog post (read HERE), I announced that I’ve decided to go the self-publishing route. I want to thank you all for the sweet comments and congratulations. While I know there will be ups and downs on this exciting journey I’m embarking upon, I look forward to, as my dad says “pressing that button,” and sharing my books with the world. A special thank you goes out to my Chick Lit Goddesses Facebook group. You ladies are truly amazing and so supportive, and I love you all!
Anyway, today’s blog post is about being happy once a decision has been made. Since deciding to self-publish, not only has my stress level gone down immensely. For a couple of weeks, okay maybe months, I’ve been a little (or, depending who you ask, very) grumpy. I would go out with friends and Ranger games, but I wasn’t really there. My mind was on achieving my goal of becoming an author. I’d try to have a relaxing evening with my hubby and again, I still wasn’t in the moment.
Finally, while at work one day, I had enough of just shuffling through life and telling people I’m still deciding which direction I’m going. Upset with myself and feeling like I was shuffling through life in limbo, I didn’t want to wait anymore and that’s when I made up my mind.
Am I still stressed? Yeah, a little bit, but it’s more of a feeling of anxious and excitement, and I’m not nearly as grumpy…
So, tonight when I go to Ranger’s game, I tend on enjoying my night and cheering on my favorite team!
