Today I'll share a bit of myself...
Recently, I was interviewed on Robyn's blog. It was great fun.
After the interview I got some responses asking me
Didn't you jump and squeal and do a beautiful happy dance once you secured your agent?
The truth is, I reacted quite differently than I expected to.
Before I was agented, I would have guessed I'd have that dancing reaction, adding in a celebratory steak dinner and trip to ColdStone (mud pie mojo, please)
But when the time came, I felt quite differently.
I felt, well, grateful.
With a sudden and clear understanding of the work ahead of me.
Celebrating too wildly seemed premature somehow. Like taking all the pictures when you're at the 75% mark of Everest.
No, when I reached that pre-summit summit, I looked down below me, thankful for making it to this beautiful place. Then I looked up at the final push to the actual summit, quietly nodded, and put my foot right back on the path.
There is no right or wrong here. I'm just sharing my own reaction and how it surprised me somewhat.
Questions: Have you ever felt this way? Does it make any sense to you or am I just a wet blanket missing the got-an-agent-party-boat? How do you expect to respond (or how did you respond) to these types of events in our lives?
