I just had one of those Oh My Gosh moments.
You know what I mean? When you realize that you unintentionally did something right, and BOOM! What you needed just slipped right into your freaking lap!
I don’t really want to jinx myself and bubble over the details before it’s confirmed… but let me tell you a few things that just became a huge slap in the face about simple truths people have been telling me, that I only kind-of believed.
1. Make contacts anywhere and everywhere.
2. You never know who you might meet.
3. Be yourself, and be nice to people. Make friends.
4. You never know when a simple innocent conversation may end up leading to the biggest opportunity of you life.
Yes, God… I’m listening. I am NOT letting this slip through my fingers.
Holy stinking cow.
Take away for today, guys… Meet as many people as you can. You never know when someone just might turn into the RIGHT ONE.
Oh!–I just saw that J Taylor Publishing is giving away five copies of the Make Believe anthology. Hop on over if you’d like a chance at a copy! http://www.jtaylorpublishing.com/blog/?p=1125
Wonderful advice! 🙂 Happy thanksgiving!
Congrats on whatever it is. But man, what a way to leave us hanging… 😉
Isn’t it nice to discover something works when you were skeptical? 🙂 Yay on whatever happened.
Whatever/whoever it is – WTG!!!
I realized that you’re never more than one or two people away from meeting someone that will have a positive effect on your life, be it a potential employer, a potential customer, or a potential friend. And in the same way, you’re never a person or two away from being a positive influence on someone else’s life. Even if you aren’t comfortable talking to strangers. Good luck, whatever it is.
So true! I never thought of it that way — but you’re right!
wow, whatever it is, congrats! I’m excited for you 🙂
Whatever it is, I hope it turns out as you hope!
Shut up shut up shut up! Don’t jinx it!
But, yes, making contacts and being nice is a really good thing.
Now shut up!
That is my motto . . . “Be nice.”
Always good rules to follow! Good luck with whatever it is you’re up to next:-)
Good luck with whatever it is. Contacts do make a difference. 🙂
From the excitement, it has to be something huge. Congrats on whatever it is and hope all goes well. Hopefully it has something to do with the publishing of your new book.
aha! a publishing is coming I am sure so let me be the first to say well deseerved and congrats!!!
All very intriguing and a great philosophy… good luck with it – whatever “it” may be 🙂
are you going to tell us what happened?
Drats this isn’t good news for an introvert like me!
But hey, I’m excited for you, whatever it is, it sounds like more good news for you, woohoo!!!
Believe me– the thought of just walking up and talking to someone makes me want to run for the hills. But everyone makes friends somehow or another. It is in those friendships that wonderful opportunities may develop. My self-emposed killer schedule has now become doubly lethal to prepare.
Good for you. You can do it.
can’t wait to hear what has happened. Kudos to you whatever it is.
