Life can often be very much like a roller coaster, with peaks and lows, and all you can do is hold on tight and navigate the bends the best that you can. For the most part, I consider myself to be rather blessed, being surrounded with loving friends and family who support me in my endeavours, and being able to seize upon many of the opportunities that come my way. When I find myself challenged, I have learnt not to see this as a "negative" - instead it is a further opportunity encourging me to strive harder or providing a much needed chance to re-evaluate things.
Every now and then however, disappointment encroaches into my "sunny" life ... like it has currently.
While I am attempting not to dwell too much on this disappointment, especially as its cause is actually the result of numerous reasons and therefore out of my hands, it is still there.
I know that all those wonderful people who have pre-ordered copies of my book will understand that delays can occur ... and that they will be receiving their copies as soon as they are printed.
And really, if this is the only major "challenge" I have in my life at the moment, then I am indeed truly blessed. Such delays are only a much needed lesson in "patience" ... and a reminder to breathe ... for things will occur when they are meant to occur.
