Last night I was watching an old video tape of My Fair Lady to relax and put myself to sleep. Remember that scene with Professor Higgins, Captain Pickering and Eliza in the background? Mr. Higgins is singing: “I did it”, when he manages to change the scruffy flower girl into the belle of the British society.
Two days ago, we heard loud shrieks coming from various states. “I did it,” several friends and fellow writers squealed after receiving phone calls announcing that their entries were Golden Heart finalists.
“I did it,” many Roses share their good news on TWRP loop when receiving 4 or 5 stars reviews while others jump up and down and announce their first sales. I did it!! I did it!!
Allow me to share my little story as I, too, want to say, I did it. Last year, I smiled with delight when I stepped on the scale and realized I reached my ideal weight. Hmm...unfortunately I stopped smiling as I loaded back ten pounds. Maybe I can do it again.
"I did it,” I shouted a few months ago when my contemporary romance Rx FOR TRUST was a finalist in Epicon.
“I did it,” I sighed with relief when I successfully presented a talk to my former company and received a standing ovation.
“I did it,” my daughter told me on the phone when she was finally able to walk with high heels after a difficult year of ankle surgery, cast, therapy and special care.
And now, I am ready to dance again as my fifth book will be released in ten days. Yes, I am counting the days.
