It was filled with personal quotes, goals, books read and to read, accomplishments, target dates, ideas and much more. I had not been able to find it for at least six months. Simply gone.
Well, this morning, as I was waiting to speak on a radio show, I moved something in my office and there it was. At arms length! My heart felt the wonderment of relief..then humour at how close to me it has been all along.
It has been interesting to go through it and see what my intentions were and where I am today. I had written that Dr. John Demartini, Gabor Mate and Sheldon Kennedy would be in UTD - they are. I planned on creating a website - which turned into this one, and I had MANY questions that I wanted to know the answers to...they are found in UTD. I wrote that my book would be on Amazon.com - it is.
There is a power in writing things down. It plants an intention and that, when followed by action, is very powerful. I completed things I had forgotten I wrote...I did not complete somethings I had forgotten I wrote.
Interestingly enough, some things that were important to me then are no longer...and vice versa. I have changed and several things in my life have changed.
I found my original book title: Unlock The Door - End the Silence..(I still like that), and a quote at the end of Jan 2012 that said "I finally feel like I found ME," and pressing questions I wanted for the book introduction:
How do we transform the negatives associated with sexual abuse into something meaningful? How do we alter our interpretations of the events into something positive? Is there a reason for everything? Why can't we talk about this? How can we create a different outcome?
I am placing my 'little black book' back in it's original location, on my bed-stand, for safe keeping.
