The scariest thing about living your passion, is that moment when you realized that you could be judge over it. It’s like when you do something you love, and you share it with the world, they can either love it, like it, hate it, or just not care about it. Which then creates that demon that keeps us all from wanting to live our passion; fear. Fear of being judged over what we love to do.

There are times when I think fear will knock me down and out but no matter when fear strikes or what I’m afraid of, faith always steps in pushes forward and through. This week, I’m sharing with you what happened when faith stepped in on an unforeseen opportunity for me to share my work and get re-enforcement that living my passion is exactly what I’m supposed to be doing!

Unfortunately, when I jumped into writing it was from a place of arrogance. I thought I’d sell my first novel and be making money within a couple of years. Eventually I started traveling abroad, teaching ESL in Asia to support my writing habit. So writing has led me to more adventures than success.
I think we all have those dreams, whether some of us are willing to admit it or not, but writing is always the beginning of something greater than what we thought. I’m not making the big bucks either, but hopefully soon (speaking it into existence), but it’s so therapeutic for me. And I’ve even been able to bring a smile, some encouragement or just a feeling to the reader on the other end. Keep writing my fellow novelist.
