I’ve long been wanting to publish this post as a thank you letter for my sister.
“Sha, why are you resigning?? 9 years will be a total waste. Please don’t!!”
That’s what I used to ask my sister…
I know that contradicts the title of this post.
But allow me to share the back story…
I remember asking my sister that question. That was a little over 5 years ago. Back when I didn’t know any better.
It was August of 2013 when she resigned. I witnessed how she struggled. I kept on telling her to go back to her old job.
There were times I would laugh at her because I thought she was making a silly decision. I was trying my best to convince her, but she already made up her mind.
She was really determined. I witnessed how she gave her all. The difficulties she had to endure.
While it was hard to see her struggle, I know it was even much harder for her to be in that situation.
But she kept on pushing. One thing I admired was her consistency! Perhaps that’s what happens if
you’re CLEAR about what you want in life.
Until she got her breakthrough. And another…and another!
And as the cliche goes, ‘the rest is history’.
Fast forward to today…
October 2018 was the 6th book launch of her online course The 90-Day Book Writing Challenge.
I’m grateful to have hosted the event (thank you, Sha, for the trust!) 13 authors launched their books!
The event last Saturday made me appreciate 3 things…
…I’m grateful that as a host, I got to witness the 13 authors launched their books!
…I’m grateful to have been surrounded with like-minded individuals!
And what’s the last thing, you ask?
…I’m just grateful that Sha didn’t listen to me when she was still starting out and struggling. 😀
I believe God planted dreams deep into our hearts. Dreams that sometimes other people won’t understand.
And in your desire to reach these dreams, people will mock and even criticize you.
Even the people closest to you will laugh at you.
And while it is disheartening, it’s all part of the process you have to go through. Know that while I’m telling this to you, I’m also preaching this to myself. 😉
Just keep pushing. Things may not make sense for now, but one day they will.
Rooting for you,
March T. Nacino
