My dad messages to say that the reprints of my first book have been collected. ‘What would you like me to do with them?’ I say, ‘let me think about it, can I talk to Fania?’ My little sister just turned 8-years old today. I had almost forgotten that she went with me to send out the first copies of the book 1-year ago. After having a chat about gymnastics and new glasses she hands the phone to my dad, ‘by the way Francis wants to know what the next book is about?’
Francis is the owner of the family run printing house in York, PA. In my first book, my focus was aimed at the ‘eat, pray, love type’. A woman who wanted more out of life than a glossy picture. Speaking with my friend’s daughter, I see it! The WHY? It is the story of a girl with big dreams who lost her way. I meet these young amazing ‘little’ women, like my little sister, like my friend’s daughter and they are the future.
I want them not to be lost in their minds, so much so that they forget their own inner beauty. I looked everywhere, under rocks and trees. Though what I couldn’t see was that I was dragging all my hopes on a reckless ride. If I could have only stood in front of that little girl and told her, ‘you are so special’. Know that! Feel that and own that! Never let anyone make you feel or tell you otherwise!
