DIARY POST 25: TAKING IT EASY

20140802_123751[1]It’s been just over a month since my book, Selima and the Merfolk has been available on Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com and Xlibris.com. The excitement is still there, and I’m sure I’ll be excited for a few months again. Sometimes my friends comment that I could relax now but in reality the work has just begun.

I did small promotions the second and third week after it was posted, however due to a delay in receiving printed copies and promotional materials I have decided to hold out on promoting until I have everything. Many people have shown an interest in purchasing copies, and I even got an offer to have it sold at a very reputable store. I was very impatient for weeks. Fortunately, I’ve realized that impatience was keeping me up at night. I began to worry so much about everything. Making myself crazy seemed to be on my ‘To Do List’ every day. Only when I was able to let go of trying to control my destiny, was I able to sleep a full night through. I just have to remind myself that worrying has never solved a problem. Truly I don’t have a problem, I have a delay, but that delay has given me time to organize some other important business, so I guess it was a good thing I got delayed.

What was I complaining about again?

  1. I know that feeling, when you worry about things that are not in your control. You just have to talk to yourself and realize there is nothing you can do to change it. Worry about the things you can change instead (if you must worry).
