Happy day when you bring forward something that you have been working on for a long time. My book 27 Miles: The Tank’s Journey Home is now available for download on Kindle through Amazon. I am very excited to have this story out and available to more people; this was a goal that I have finally met.
My step back today is understanding that people are not always engaged, or interested, in what I have to say. It is funny, because a few months ago I would have said that it didn’t matter what others thought. I am doing what I knew I was meant to do, and I did it.
And now, when I get negative feedback, it hurts – a lot.
I am un-centered right now; unsure of my place, and what my goal should be right now. When I have been here in the past, I just sit still and wait. It always comes to me.
So tomorrow, while Frank is in a place of greatness – with his peers – I will be working on finding my center. And maybe not worrying so much about what people think, and just doing what I am asked to do, speak where I am asked to speak, and go where I am led.
No sense in worrying or trying to control other people. People will do what they will do.
I need to be just who I am meant to be.
Note: This blog is a blog entry by Lisabeth Mackall, author of two inspiring novels- Dying to Live Your Life and 27 Miles: Tank’s Journey Home. This blog is just one of the many entries that chronicles Lisabeth’s trials and triumphs in life. Mackall wrote 27 Miles: Tank’s Journey Home few years ahead of the first book. In 2013, Lisabeth’s husband Frank met a tragic accident that left him with a brain injury. The book details the trauma, emotions as well as the support that the family experienced following Frank’s accident.
