I have a sign that says that with a bullseye on it. It’s supposed to be for stress relief. Unfortunately, I’m having heart-pounding, anxiety-laden stress attacks for no good reason.
BLOOD AND DESTINY is doing well. The reader feedback has been awesome and the reviews have been favorable.
My husband, while still in Haiti, is anticipating a safe return home SOON.
My current WIP (the follow-up St. George novel) is smokin’. The words are flying on the pages and I’ve had to adjust the outline to filter in all the new ideas and developments. The flood gates of creativity are open.
My children are excited about school again and seem to be over the struggle brought on by the winter doldrums. We have scheduled Spring Break next week because their renewed dedication has put them well ahead in their work.
So why am I on the verge of panic attacks? Simply put, I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop.
I’ve always been the glass is in the middle kind of person…neither half-full or half-empty. It’s been my experience that life comes with an innate sense of balance. The highs are balanced by lows. And, in my case, in rapid fire succession. This many good things can’t possibly be happening at the same time.
Or can it? Do you believe in serendipity? That fate sometimes plays a hand in bettering one’s fortunes?
I do. And I find myself closing my eyes to calm my pounding heart and offering up a little prayer of thanks for the good things. And when I open them, I promise myself that if (or when) the pendulum swings back the other way, I’ll smile and remember that everything happens for a reason…and with a little balance.
