ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT ME?

Great book. First time I have read this author. She is very good.Can’t wait toread the next one.

Betrayed is the first book that I’ve read by Lillian Duncan, and I wonder how it is that I’ve missed out on this exciting author until now! Excellent suspense writer is a term that should be one of the author’s descriptives, as her newest book is so captivating that I read it in one day. 

There is nothing I can say except “an absolutely wonderful book.” I stayed up until 2 am to finish this book in 1 day. 

 

Those are a few snippets from reviews for my latest book-BETRAYED.  I don’t read reviews for my books on a regular basis so when I checked a few of them out, I was so pleased to find that readers are enjoying my latest story and taking the time to write a review. And I want to give all those who wrote a review for that book or any of my books  a very heartfelt thank you. Writing and posting reviews is a great way to help out your favorite writers and it only takes a few minutes of your time.

I have a riddle for you. What do my book reviews, my old paintings, and old pictures of me have in common?

They remind me that I don’t always view myself the way others do.

As I read my book reviews, I was so humbled that people liked the way I put the words together into a story. When I look at old paintings that I did years ago, I’m always surprised by them. I can’t believe my hands created something that pretty.  The same is true for my books and even old pictures of myself. When I look at pictures of myself from years gone by, I think, Wow–I didn’t look too bad back then. Yet I don’t remember feeling that way at the time.

Sometimes we are our own worse critics–and we shouldn’t be.

It’s not good to be arrogant and that’s not what I’m proposing, but I think far more of us are too hard on ourselves. We need to take a step back and view us as others view us. One way to do that is to believe people when they give us a compliment us. Instead of disagreeing with them, a simple thank you will suffice!

So, what about you? Are you surprised at how good you look in old pictures? Do you have a distorted view of yourself and your accomplishments? How did you get over it?

Until next time…God Bless and Good Reading!
