a deep breath.
Well tonight I'm writing to you with uncharacteristically sweaty palms.
I wish I could say that it was due to my amazing workout.
But, yeah. Not so much.
Tonight is the night I probably won't sleep a wink.;)
Yes. I foresee a night of tossing and turning. Looking at the time.
And more turning.
Yes. Beppa is a little bundle of nerves.
You see a few long (very long) months ago I embarked on a journey to bring the message of raw to the world. LOL. Ok, perhaps not the world, but to as many people as possible. And as phase 1 of the plan. I expected everything to snap together in record time and be buzzing successfully in a week. LOL. Yeah, not so much.
But, things are finally to the point...er' well. No more stalling. And it's far too late to turn around and quit. Although every bone in me says stop! You can't do this!!! So I'm just telling me to shut up.
Tomorrow I am soft launching my website to friends and family. Soft launch? YES. No major announcement, press release, etc. Not yet. Not until we get the kinks worked out. Soooooo. If you happen to pop in for a peek, and you notice any typos, missing links...or anything that is seriously not working right. Please let me know, ok? As most of you know I've been doing a lot of it myself in the wee wee hours, so I am certain there are typos galore.
But I just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you. I truly appreciate all of the time and energy you have poured into me, offering encouragement, laughter, friendship, a shoulder to cry on, a place to vent and freak out, etc. etc. etc. You have been there every single step of the way. And I hope that you feel that this is your baby too. I know that I couldn't and wouldn't have done it without you.
I love that this is a place where we encourage one another to follow our dreams, kick doors down, overcome obstacles, and grow through our trials. And I love that you were each right here beside me through the good bad and the ugly. Lifting me up with your words and prayers. So...before I go to bed. (((((HUGS))))).
Wish me luck tomorrow. XOXOXO! :)
