It was Day 1 of the Brand Story Challenge. I was [reluctant], [physically sick], and [weary].
But above all, I was ready. Ready to share my story with [my amazing super supportive Brand Story Society family and a new community of ‘could be’ authors], and be totally honest about my journey with [helping everyday people to self-publish their stories, messages and collective works easily, economically and in excellence].
When I hit ‘post’ on that first day, I felt [committed]. Whoa. I was really [embracing] all this? What were people gonna [feel] when they heard [that I initially didn’t want to publish any books other than my own because I found other manuscripts to be serious work and quite tedious to edit].
Is vulnerability reeeally that [necessary]?
Then… something [exciting] happened. The response was [empowering]. Suddenly, people were [affirming] - and I mean *really* [pumping me up]. And for the first time ever, I felt truly [on point].
Now, the challenge is at an end.
So I wanted to say thank you all for [digging deeper] with me. It is a [blessing] to be so [divinely] [supported] by so many people.
I feel [valued]. I feel [confident]. And I know going forward - nothing can stop me from continuing this story, and sharing it out loud, and without [hesitation].
[Educate, Encourage and Empower]
