Is it me only …..

…..that I find myself fallen in love with my author

My question always. Is it me only ….?

Tell me something different. Have you ever find yourself to have fallen in love with an author and as you trace your life, every piece of it happens to connect with your reads. Strange hey! But is this a coincidence or are these mysteries that we never get to understand or rather they are not explained to us as we wish or desire to or ….

I don’t know but there two authors that I love most and whenever I need a read, I buy from their lists because both of them (as I recall) were the first two authors to fall in love with growing up. Not sure wether they were my mom’s favorite, but I found them in her bunch of novels in our study at home

Ever since then, they have been my best and favorites. Maybe I should ask my mom if she used to read a lot from these authors when she was pregnant with (laugh). I don’t know. But what is interesting is that I feel like every story they write, I resonate with. I connect with it to the point that it feels so real. I feel like I have been there or it is my story they are talking about. It is so so scary sometimes

I wonder why is it like this. I know in many of my experiences that God connects us with people or leads us to stories that have the message as ours. I lived to know an understand that the purpose is to either teach us something or we need that story to be strong or learn from it. Wisdom is what they call it

I know I love family stories because I am a family person. I care a lot about family and I always want the best for it. I like stories that speaks about family lives: their loses, struggles, pain, hurts, experiences, secrets and in general how these families navigate all these as a unit or as an extended family (expanding from just being a mom, dad and their kids to having their adult children having their own kids as well and households), making issues even bigger than the first unit.

As I read about them, listen I get deep with my all and emotions. Please do not laugh at me, this is serious. I share the sadness and the happiness of these stories with my family. This is how far they affect me (I can tell I am not the only one, there are many like me). I am glad that I am not at a mental hospital with serious state of mind as I write this because honestly, they impact on us in real life. We get depressed sometimes. I know that because they are mostly real life stories, we cannot take away our human element as we read. We get involved; and become part of it even if your mind told you it was for “leisure” the effect is not for the fun of it. It’s serious

I have read stories from another of my best author about solving family mysteries. Yep, I know it’s sound funny but in my entire life I always find my self in this space. I am not sure to call it a calling or what, but the two writers always meet me in the center; and the center being the family. Don’t read me wrong. I am not a prophetess or someone trying to say I see things before they happen or what; or I am snooping in my family businesses, a Big no! But it is this space that I always find myself in that I question

But anyways, thank you for reading

The two writers connect and they connect with me somehow. Solving this mystery is also another read for another time. You know what is even worse is that you even feel their influence in your own writing. Does it make sense?

Hope one day I will write about this and my book will be published; and my readers will feel the same thing that I am feeling when I read my authors books

May today do you good

A realist, always fond of things that are real and matters. The lover of writing and a staunch reader, growing up with a burning passion of writing. I always have a pen a pad with me, life is a story that I never want to miss writing about. It always fascinates me when we are categorized as introverts and extroverts because that on its own is the reason behind every personality. I grew up being referred to as an “introvert” and I later understood the personality behind it: quite, reserved, peaceful, creative mind & thinking; antisocial and very analytical. Being in that space I always knew that as a writer or reader you cannot do that in a noisy or busy place; you need a quite and peaceful environment. It is interesting how I found myself being able to fit all that I love doing in this space that I find myself loving because I fit so perfectly (besides the stereotypes, it is the truth): they all fit, my list is endless but what I know for sure is that “I am born an artist” I am married to my loving and supportive husband for 23 years, Collen and we are blessed with four children; three adult boys; all grown ups and the youngest teen daughter who is still with us and in high school. I am University graduate with a B.A degree in Social Science (majored in Psychology, Sociology and Anthropology), graduated with MBA in Sports in 2011. Worked for more 13 years until 2009 when we began our diplomatic life as a family. What I am grateful for is that there is always a bigger plan and things happen for a reason. Although mostly often, we do not have answers; all that matters is that we share those experiences and life lessons to inspire and lift others up. This is my passion and I am thrilled by challenges; good or bad and my mind likes solving mysteries that I believe are real; sometimes hidden and not spoken about. My favorite authors Danielle Steel and Agatha Christie always challenges my thinking and approach in life. I began reading their books from 14 years and I am still their fan reader. They share their stories in writing and as someone who likes sharing, I quickly connected with them My life is all about the real world: family, marriage, relationships, health, children, parenting, spirituality, cooking, leisure, travel, reading, writing, engaging, connecting, encouraging......I love sharing Sharing is golden
