I have always been a doer. And I like to follow through. And I like to tie things off. I also like to think that I can know how things are going to play out, because most things actually do turn out pretty decently for me – most of the time. With hard work and careful planning results ought to be just about what I think they’re going to be, right? Maybe.
I have been learning that maybe is the truest answer there is to the question above, because we really never know how something is meant to turn out. We think we know the result we would like to have, but since we are only responsible for our side of the equation, that leaves the other side wide open for possibility!
Consider the flash about my book series. I had really thought that because it was so incredibly specific with the name of the series, the first two lines of the first book, that it would be written in rhyme scheme – yada, yada – that I would be headed for success with fantastic book sales. I mean, the Universe spoke to me; It wanted these books out there! They are about the energy of love, for goodness sake! What else was I supposed to think?
With the first two books I was constantly checking on sales. With this last book, however, I’ve just learned to let that be. Now it’s a total surprise when I get royalty deposits as I rarely look at my book account info anymore. (I am still inquiring about reviews, however, because it falls to me to promote my books. And stay tuned because there might be one in the works!)
Anyway, great books sales was an assumption that I had made. And who am I to say what the Universe had in mind for this series other than I was to write and publish it? Maybe that was all that was meant to happen. Maybe just that. Getting these books to print has been a huge accomplishment for me, and in and of itself, that certainly measures as a success.
Lisa + energy of love books = possibility.
That’s a pretty great equation all on its own.
Maybe there’s more in store.
