In the movie How to Lose Friends & Alienate People there is a scene where the horrible boyfriend tells the clueless girl to quit carrying “that book” around with her. He says it’s embarrassing.
That book was the novel she was working on. She was passionate about that book. Her dream was becoming reality through that book. For her there was nothing embarrassing about it.
I truly believe that everyone has some version of that book living inside their soul. Maybe you have that job, that song, that child, that idea; something inside you is waiting to become reality.
I also believe that God made relationships to help us write that book. We need the loves of our lives to be supportive, encouraging, even to believe for us sometimes. The special people in our lives should never treat our dreams as embarrassing or petty. Our relationships are designed to be the soil where we plant our dreams.
Write that book. And don’t settle for anything less than a co-author.
