“The process of writing a book has given me a whole new reverence for writers. Mechanically, it is a brutal process; emotionally, it’s incredibly healing.” Cory Booker

So simple the answer would always be, do it smarter. Yet many often choose do it harder. These types of people want to do everything for themselves. If they don’t know how to do something, they will learn. They question everything, be it a car mechanic or doctor. I understand this personality type. They are the investigators, the diggers, the one’s that can do it all, and they do.

Not so much with me. I skip through all the pages of warnings and legalities, I just sign. I never read my bills I just pay them. I hate manuals who reads those? Or that’s right, my guy does, well at least one of us does.

If I have to be intense and pay great attention to detail I know that I am capable. I can research, I can learn. I would just prefer not to. I would prefer help, someone telling me the best course of action and why.

I am not very good at questions. I go through life like it is all on my side. Like everything will turn out for the best. That whomever is supposed to show up will. I have a heart full of faith and hope.

I have had crappy things happen to me, that doesn’t escape me. I have had my share of misfortunes. I understand that my optimistic life view some may think of as hapless or hippy-dippy. However, for the most part this blind faith of mine has served me.

I set forth writing a book. I have written for years and have written several children’s books. However, when someone showed up and told me I had to share it with the world I started paying attention. I became more focused with writing. Then another person showed up who was getting her master’s degree in writing. She had always dreamt of helping someone finish their book. We were off to the races and spent many nights working on what now has become a book. Then another person showed up and told me I had to have a platform and branding. What? Okay, I once again jumped in with blind faith and pushed forward. Then there were designers for the cover, and another for the logo girl. There were formatters, editors, content editors, proofreaders. All coming together be a part of the team, the project, that would become a book.

If I did this project smarter for having such a team it was without consideration. I allowed the people who showed up to show up. I felt deep gratitude along the way and with that gratitude the next person showed up!

It has been a true work of heart, a miracle project that without the team would not have happened, without the gratitude would not have happened. If I tried to do it myself, it would have never happened. I just jumped in and it happened to be smarter, therefore it is full of many hearts. Weaving it together to become what we can share with you.

Although I would like to say I am organized, focused and cookie-cutter, that simply would not be me. I am no different than any other woman in the world. I love to love, love hard, and, in the end, have learned to love myself above all else. So here I am, writing about the many men and the multiple purposes they have served in my life. Realizing that not one man on my roster had fulfilled every single one of my needs. Perhaps one man is not supposed to? I have compiled snippets of the men that have entered my world. In the end, they have shoved me towards my bathroom mirror, forcing me to take a better look at myself. Reflection is brilliant and the strongest guidepost into ourselves.

Working on the next book in the series “A House for Every Purpose, My Journey From Pillow to Pillow” revels a woman abandoning her home in search or her identity beyond men, motherhood, author.
