It has been some time since I have posted a Blog or Update. I believe there are times when we need to take a step back and reboot. This has been that time for me. Since we ended the contract with the Publisher I worked for 3 years with on my book … I felt it a good time to reflect on the journey I am on in advocating for the mentally ill. These past 3 months have given me an opportunity to reflect on how to best get my message in front of an audience. I have done some serious soul-searching, researching and had much conversation with my husband as to what outcome we are looking for. It has never been about money for me, never will be. My passion is to reach as many as possible with my story and personal knowledge of living a life with mental disorders. I have found that this is where I am supposed to be at this time. For this reason, changes needed to occur, like switching my publisher, and many other things will need to be reworked to get the best result possible. We will be changing up the Website, creating a YouTube channel, going into contract with a New Publisher, and I will be stepping way out of my comfort zone!
So Gang, every now and then we all need to take a step back. I believe we should all take time to examine our motivation and where we are putting our time and effort. In my case, I realize I needed to streamline, get rid of what isn’t working and force myself to focus on the necessary. It is not going to be comfortable, but this journey is not about me and my comfort. I knew that would be the case. The older I get, the more I realize how precious life is and time waits for no one. As they say, Go Big or Go Home! If I’m going to put this out there, “this” being my personal life and what feels like my soul, might as well Go Big!
Thank you to those who have followed this far… I certainly hope you will continue follow my journey. With you in my heart💓 Alice
