What I don’t want to tell you
What I’d rather hide
What must be overcome
I’m scared. You too?
The smell in the air?
Rubber meeting road. Burning. Run. Hide. Avoid.
What’s the problem? What’s this current fear?
Launching my book into the world.
Sending up flares to spread my message far and wide.
Asking for reviews.
Continuing to show up for the book
even when I am ready to play with other projects.
What I want for the book:
Read it. Do the work. Write your book.
Change the world.
No more hiding your voice, your message, your power.
That’s what I want for anyone who wants to write a book.
The courage to do it. To open up your heart and share.
I return again and again
to why this book matters
why this book holds more strength and courage
than I do some days.
It’s time. It’s time for all of us to
Step it up.
I stand upon
my fears, my excuses, my inclination to play it safe.
I step up instead of
Let your bold moves and works of art
ignite the world with love and power.
Now is the time.
To send copies of my book to strangers
to ask for help
to keep pushing past outdated fears to get. my. message. out.
Even if it’s only one person in the world
whose life will be changed by my book
will you disbelieve today
what bold moves will ignite the world?
