The glamor of achievement. My design project about Design and women. “Le Chic Cocoon”. It definitely has a glow, to know that I had a dream and made it real. It did take a village and some kicking and screaming by moi, but I arrived in joy, a new woman.
Writing a book is an interesting process. I dreamed of doing it since I was a young girl penning the great romance novel (that never was done) and finally this year, that dream became a reality. I discovered that the hardest part of writing was committing to the process. Making it happen takes work, even when I wasn’t in the mood. It was a rush to the finish line to get all the detail done, and thanks to the help I had, I did actually complete the book and market it online & in person.
The exciting journey from design concept in January to the actual publication took 9 months. I birthed a different kind of baby. From first words to completed manuscript took four.
A totally eye opening and thrilling adventure. The culmination a fabulous event put on by my publisher. Not only did I get to hang out with the glam and fabulous, and celebrate with friends, I won a prize for Winners of Excellence in Book Marketing. Quite a feat, for someone who could barely whisper what she did a few short years ago. Happy to share that writing this book “Le Chic Cocoon” has opened up my life in so many ways. I really am a new woman. Bold enough to say yes to a dream, and confident enough to spend time dreaming in my own sanctuary.
I have a tribe, a message and meaning in my life. If you have a dream, remember it all starts with a whisper.
