This Journey

In the midst of everything amazing going on in my life-- I felt the need to share.

I published my book as you well know-well most of you do any way. It is exceeding my expectation in sales and positive feedback is all I've gotten.
Never in a million years would I have thought that I would have finished a book, worked a year on perfecting it, and then getting it published. Let alone getting great results. It amazes me daily and I am humbled by the support that I receive on a daily basis- from friends, family, work associates, twitter friends, facebook companions. The list continues. It's amazing how blessed someone can feel only by doing something they love.
I was told recently how lucky I am to have found my niche- that one thing in life that completely satisfies me, relaxes me, comforts me, and just all in all makes me happy and to be good at it as well- I didn't realize it until now. All I thought before was "I'm just doing something I enjoy." but it's more than that to me-deep down it's a dream come true.
On top of that to be told I'm an inspiration for following my dreams. "But it's something I've always loved." and I would shrug my shoulders. I didn't do this to inspire or to prove anything.
I did it because I love it. Because it comforts me. It's like ice cream on hot summer day :) It relaxes me-like the sound of rain bouncing off the tree leaves outside. :D
From the beginning, again, I didn't expect this to take off the way it has. I expected only my friends and family to buy a copy out of "hey I know her" type feelings. I didn't expect to be published. To have it done in a weekend. I didn't expect to have people buying my book for Christmas presents or wanting my signature. I didn't expect any of it, and I guess what I'm saying is...
I feel lucky. I feel blessed. I feel grateful for the opportunity. I am touched by the miles and miles of support coming from all around.
Thank you for reading this. Thank you for reading my book. Thank you for supporting me. Thank you for being my friend-whether it be life-long, twitter, facebook, or other means- Still Thank you! You make my day you make me happy and you make me want to keep on writing. You inspire me.

And I'm sorry if this came out all sappy :) but it was just one of those moments! :D


  1. Tiffany,

    I just wanted to say what a pleasure it was to read your book. I don't think you were being sappy at all. It's so incredible when you can do something you love and have people appreciate your talents at the same time. I wish you nothing but the best.
