My Dearest Friend...
That lump in your throat... Why are you about to cry?
I'm sorry you feel this way.
This letter is my way of giving to you what you desperately seek through a story of sacrifice, exhaustion, frustration, and the never ending struggle between continuing the trek or finally giving up. By the end of this letter, you'll know YOUR answer. You will trust it.
The Traveling Book?
So, I had this idea. The plan was to share a book, not just by word of mouth or through social media links, but through good old fashioned mail. Below is a picture of the box with the book in it ready to go on its first destination.
My Own Frustrations (A mini Tangent)
I'm in the middle of some big time creation. This means putting stuff on hold and choosing to say 'NO' to many things. Here's the thing:
Sometimes its really hard.
The sacrifices are worth it, but doesn't mean it doesn't take a toll on me from time to time.
I do get frustrated.
Because there are other things.... like love, family, friends, hobbies, money, etc.
Do you ever feel like this?
"What am I going to do now?"
"Why are things moving sooooo slowly?"
"How do I keep going?"
"Who REALLY understands me?"
"Where am I headed? Because I thought I could see, but I just can't see where all this is taking me."
"I don't want to feel this way anymore."
What is going to happen? (The Point)
You have to believe that what you put out in the world (the goodness you are sharing)
will find its way back home to you. I DO know how hard it is because I have lived it and I still do. Whether it's waiting for a job, a check, a partner, an opportunity, or a little miracle.
I do know what you are feeling....I KNOW the pain you are feeling right now. And I know how desperate you are to peek into the future, even for a moment, to prove that
the waiting will one day end.
I want to invite you to be part of my experience. This is an experiment. This book. I am sending it to someone I know with a note to pass it on. The rule is this: "The 10th person to receive this book will be Sandy Galiano." So you see, I trust the book will come back home to me. I TRUST in receiving what I put out into the world. I have no idea when it will arrive in my mailbox. I'm sending a physical energy (the Book) as well as the invisible energy (to Believe and to Trust). The Book then perhaps is a symbol, representing the intangible.
This book. Your Dream.
I see it with my eyes. You see it in your mind.
I can feel it with my hands. You feel it in your Soul.
It is real. It is real.
Others see it too. Keep Going... just because others don't see it, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
Love always. Forever & ever,
PS "The Traveling Book" is an unfinished letter because I do plan on sharing my experience of receiving it. As I said, I do not know when that day will be. It will be interesting to see what has changed since then. As I wait for the book to return, perhaps the other things I am "waiting for" now will have found there way to me! :) Peace.
Got the world figured out?
I did, until it came crashing down. I had no choice but to start over and rebuild.
