I’m not sure if anyone has mentioned it yet today…
…but you are amazing.
The one drinking coffee or diet coke or sparkling water eating a blueberry muffin or bowl of oatmeal or piece of watermelon sitting there with your amazing self.
And the best part?
Today is your day.
Today is the day you are going to do great things and find solutions and solve problems and bring joy and make someone laugh and be the friend they write about in books.
Today the world will smile because YOU showed up.
And to celebrate you and your day….
…I want to give away a little amazing.
Today I want to give away 10 copies of So Close to Amazing.
I wrote my heart on every single one of these pages.
I wrote about my struggles. I wrote about my mistakes. I wrote about my challenges and my missteps and my Achilles hip.
Because that’s me. Always trying. Always striving. Always planning and dreaming and brilliant-ideaing it. I’m the embodiment of hope springing eternal. I wake up every morning with big plans and creative projects and giant mountains to climb. I’m valiantly striving to put my best foot forward every day.
Sometimes I succeed beyond my wildest dreams.
….not so much.
But even when I fail. Even when I’m not my best. Even when I slide down a hill at a conference in front of 200 people or hold up the line at Target looking at my hair in the security camera or bring a roast to garden club and make an entire county laugh.
The amazing is still there.
Waiting for its next moment to shine.
I have 10 copies of this amazing book just waiting to be shared.
So Close To Amazing is full of stories of triumph and grace and discovering that amazing that’s just below the surface.
There are total asides and photos of my home and hand-drawn DIY’s at the end of each chapter from a story in the book.
And the best part?
This book makes a perfect gift of encouragement for a friend.
So today, leave a comment below with the name of someone you think is amazing.
Someone who you believe in.
Someone who is special and wonderful and incredible.
Someone who has made your life the better for knowing them.
I’ll select 10 names by random number draw from the comments at 8:00 CST Monday, October 30 2017 and give away a copy of So Close To Amazing to each amazing name I draw with a message from the person who nominated them.
Happy Amazing Day to you. 🙂
