Soul Saturdays: One Small Step

In November 2011 on Thanksgiving Day, I hit the "publish" button for the first time on Yahoo (anyone can publish through www.contributor.yahoo.com). The thrill of that moment, and then seeing the article go live the next day, filled me with a sense of purpose and ecstatic joy, but I didn't fully realize what that moment meant at the time.
Now I do.
That one small step, which only took about two hours of my time, began a journey that I am still thrilled to be on and will be on until the day I die.
And I'm getting ready to hit an unbelievable, terrifying, and freakin' exciting milestone: publishing my first novel.
I'm launching a Kickstarter VERY soon, and it will fund the self-publishing expenses that are involved. It's scary as hell, but in that my-heart-is-fluttering-and-I-can't-stop-grinning way.
Thank you for being on this journey with me. I know how lucky I am to be doing work that I love, and it would be possible without you!
Eternally grateful,
P.S. What small step can YOU take today to put you on a path to reach your dreams? Share in the comments so we can support you!
