Today‘s episode is short and sweet. It’s dedicated to my first book, The Heart Works, which will be released in the next few weeks.
The book began as a journaling exercise for me in 2014. At the time there was a social media challenge that was trending, 100 Days of Happy, that involved people sharing pictures or statements of what they were happy about or grateful for. One thing I knew for sure was that I was not happy…at all. So I decided to borrow from the idea, calling my exercise 100 Days of Solitude. I committed the final 100 days of 2014 to being intentional about being with myself and journaling as a way to purge my emotions and jump-start my own healing. I knew that my unhappiness stemmed from a lot of things; the company that I was keeping and the lack of self-care were top of the list of things that were simply draining me.
As I finished my journaling challenge and began to read through the entries I realized that, although they were quite personal and vulnerable, they were also powerful and I knew that they could help someone else heal just as writing them had helped me to begin to heal.
I began compiling the journal entries and mixed in other pieces that I had written over time, revelations, short stories, letters, travel stories, etc., and I am finally ready to share it all with you.
I do not have a release date just yet, but I would like to share the website with you all. The website has a little more information about the book and about me and all the other things that I’ve been working on (including this podcast…😊). I hope you’ll take a look and stay connected with me as I finish this work and release it into the world.
And I hope that reading the book will help you discover how your own heart works.
