As many people already know my Memoir has been published!. It’s a great feeling and also very humbling to have had the opportunity to share with the world my private life.
My ultimate goal is to be an advocate for people who want to accomplish more in life. Before I left the Amish, I felt handicapped in my own my own body. I didn’t know how to move forward without causing a massive volcano with my family and my future. As you can read in my memoir, I wasn’t a very well behaved child. Now looking back on it, I realize I was searching for something that was a void in my life and I didn’t know what it was until I started making changes. I finally allowed myself to let it all go and just plunge forward and hoped God would catch me before I landed on my nose. And HE did! Everyone should know – if you can dream it, you can achieve it! Well, not all dreams can be achieved; I don’t want to get your hopes up. 😉 Not everyone will win the lottery or live in a trillion dollar mansion with unicorns and Barbie dolls. Reaching a dream is not about achieving a status from the top down… it’s about working from the bottom and staying focused until the top is reached. Maybe something better than a mansion will be achieved. While working on goals, don’t ever let the word CAN’T come out of your mouth and you will see a big difference in the way things start to fall together. At home I was always told – YOU CAN’T, for no apparent reason. I hated it. I hated hearing you can’t have a big mirror because it’s worldly. Whatever that means. You can bet I had one hidden in my closet, Lol. Once I refused to listen to all the can not’s, I became a whole different person. That is when I left them behind. I started filling whatever was void in my life and I quit worrying what my family thought of me or worrying where my future was headed or where it wasn’t headed. I like living in the moment, being truthful with myself, and never stopping for pot holes in the road.
I wrote a book for a few reasons –
The first reason was to educate the public what it is like to grow up Amish and then leave that community behind.
The second reason was to show people that great life changes can be made with the right mindset. It just takes a lot of will power at first, but if it’s done with confidence then the volcano that you were scared of creating will actually patch itself back up.
The third reason was because I like to write whatever comes out of my mouth. It might not always make sense, but I blame it on my German way of thinking. 😉 If I try to be professional with my words I sound fake!
