Celebrate the Small Things 4: Follow Your Bliss

Fridays are all about celebrating the Small Things thanks to a weekly blog hop created by author Lexa Cain. Joint co-hosts this week are authors L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge Tonja Drecker @ Kidbits Blog The mission coincides with what I’m hoping to do with my own writing, inspire and focus on the light when those slippery shadows creep around our shoes.

Trust and patience are two words I’m learning to use in my life. I’m sort of a fiery girl with lots of energy, and waiting is not one of the easiest things to do. I think that’s why this quote means so much to me though because if you love something and you practice what you love, good events and people do create doorways in some of the least expected ways.
This week, my celebrations include:
  • A bike ride with my kids on Monday night. We rode our bikes a different route this time, to my biggest celebration … which I can’t quite reveal yet. Ugh. Next week though. I’ll let you know. ;0)
  • I made it through my week at work which was a victory in itself with tight deadlines and I received a big thank you note from my boss which made me feel pretty good.
  • While listening to a song list I created for the new manuscript I’m beginning, I was on the Stairmaster and suddenly the end of the book hit me. It was amazing. I almost feel off the Stairmaster as I grabbed my phone and typed in a few quick notes … lol. It was a well worth risk I took and I survived.
  • And … Guess what? Hero Lost: Mysteries of Death and Life comes out next week! I received my own digital copy as a gift from Dancing Lemur Press LLC and wow!

How about you? Did you have any pleasant surprises this week?

It’s Friday! Yay! That’s reason to celebrate in my eyes.

I almost forgot to share my favorite new yummy snack, though I can’t promise it’s good for you πŸ˜‰ I think I ate half the bag. LOL

  1. I can see me almost falling off my elliptical like that.

    I hope you’ve also received your print copies.

  2. You never know when inspiration will strike! Lovely celebrations – enjoy your weekend.

  3. Lovely post, Erika. Enjoy your success and have a great weekend!

  4. It’s great to hear you had fun with your kids, received well-deserved gratitude from your boss, and got inspiration for the end of your novel! I’m not very patient either, but I’ve decided I work too hard and need more “me” time. Wishing your a lovely weekend!

  5. A bike ride can be so exhilarating. My husband and I rode along the river recently and so enjoyed it. Need to do that again. A boss’s kind words can mean everything. I wish more took the time. Have a nice weekend!

  6. Bike rides with the kids are so much fun. I’m hoping to hit tons of things like that this summer vacation with mine. Congrats on the idea blitz…luckily, it didn’t cause injury. Never know when those will hit πŸ™‚

  7. It’s the little things in life!!! I’m reading Hero Lost right now and loving it!
