I'm on my way......

I am so excited, I got two e-mails with fantastic news today.  First, the Book Chapter about eating disorders that I co-authored for the RT handbook is almost ready to go :) and should be published this year.  Second, I just got offered a part-time position doing some writing for a wedding planning company.  I feel like the stars are aligned.  It is amazing when you go after your future - positive things really do begin to happen. 
I know I will really miss teaching, but life is too short to do something that doesn't make you happy. 
The voice in my head has been telling me its time to leave teaching and go write, and that voice has been getting louder and louder lately.  Today I think that voice was screaming an affirmation - it is time to write and although its scary not to have a planned steady income, I know it will all work out.


  1. I left teaching and don't regret it at all. Good luck in your brave new world.

  2. Thanks Saskia for the encouragement!

  3. Hi Laurie,

    My book was recently released, keep going, it's worth it! :)

    I look forward to reading your book when it's released.

    Best wishes
