My Story of Stuck

I am not going to lie to you; on Friday, I absolutely did not want to write. I had the kind of dread usually reserved for waiting at the MVA or watching children’s television shows when babysitting.

It would have been so easy to just blow it off and watch Four Weddings and a Funeral on Hulu. I could have given into my exhaustion (we are talking Disney princess after eating an apple or touching a spindle tired) and not worked on my book.

But you know what?

I wrote anyway.

And it was amazing.

I actually felt exponentially more joyful and energized after I was done. I was literally dancing around the room to Elton John.

It was that kind of joy.

So if you would rather listen to Kid Rock on repeat than write your book, I suggest writing it anyway. Once you get past your fear and resistance, you will find joy. And lots of dance parties.
