Remember this day? The day I revealed the Carry On, Warrior paperback? It was a really important day for Momastery and for my career. And I was afraid.
Even though I BELIEVE IN HER BIG TIME – I was afraid to ask you to buy Carry On, Warrior. My whole life and heart and mind and soul and family and joy and pain are all stuffed between her front and back covers. So I was scared to ask you to support something so DEAR to me because: what if you decided not to? What if you read my essay and thought eh, and moved on to the next thing in your busy day? That would have been understandable, completely, but it also would’ve broken my heart a little. So I walked around all day avoiding the computer and feeling very vulnerable and taking deep breaths and wondering, wondering, wondering if you’d show up for COW.
BOY, DID YOU SHOW UP.
Thank you for not only NOT breaking my heart but expanding it approximately seven million times bigger. Thanks for moving our book from #72,000 to #4 of all the books on Amazon in one day. I MEAN. WHOA. Thank you for making my editor and publisher so dang excited. THANK YOU, mostly, for proving that I’m not totally insane for believing so mightily in us. I am insane for other reasons, sure, but not for believing in us. That has NOW BEEN PROVEN. BA- BAM!
Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you for showing up.
Here is a thank you message from me to you. It’s about Carry On, Warrior and it’s about me and it’s about you.
