The thoughts running through my mind were bouncing from one corner to another, and I laughed. I laughed because the man, that is pouring his heart and soul into making my vision a reality, is SO much like me. I go down my rabbit trails, and he goes down his, although he's very good at redirecting me and getting me focused, at times, and I'm a little too good at interrupting him, I get too excited. I'm working to tame that, really, I am. Actually, he may need to get a shock collar to zap me back into the real world.
I swear the man was able to see, in detail, my vision for this project from the time I approached him with it. He's so funny, he puts up with me, I tend to bounce with my thoughts, and he sees them, it's like wi-fi to wi-fi. I am amazed. Plus, he and I work so well together, bouncing ideas, planning, envisioning. I'm just on cloud nine.
I got to the office today, and my guy, not in any way, but work partner, and my gift from God, my mentor, and friend, were both there. She and I watched him. He was SO excited to show us some of our nearly completed work.
We were totally blown away. I sat there thinking, "Oh my God, this IS coming together!" What I had envisioned and dreamed of is becoming reality. I'm still on such an amazing high after our meeting. All the thoughts, the ideas, and the filming we've done, consume me at times. I awake in the middle of the night, thinking of things I should have said, thinking of the work, and fun that lies before us, and I marvel at how this totally came out of the blue.
He, as well as the other member of our trio, is so encouraging to me, and so much fun to be around. It's not like work at all, it's fun, really fun. But, he does remind me, as I'm aware of, but I appreciate his reminders (they make me focus), that the success of this endeavor rests totally on my shoulders, and my ability to sell myself. We've pulled together an incredible team, but knowing the success, or failure, of this depends on me, is daunting at times. But I have confidence in myself, my ability, and in my team.
It's funny, after my friend and I were filmed today, we just chatted and had girl talk, he walked in the room and was shaking his head and smiling. I wasn't so sure what he was going to say, and was a bit worried, but he said, "You two are amazing together." What a compliment! What a relief! I mean, she and I know we rock together, and by that I mean, we have fun, we're real, we have the bull by the horns, but for him to tell us that was such a confidence boost. He's taken my idea and he's brought it to life, and that alone keeps me where I need to be to sell this.
A friend of mine is a music artist in Nashville. He and I have been talking about the amount of work that goes into projects like this, it's overwhelming at times. People have NO idea the amount of blood, sweat and tears, that go into things like we're both working on, and my friend has agreed to work with us on this, he's behind us, we're behind him, and we're going to actually get to work together! EXCITING!
I'm chomping at the bit to let more of what's going on out to the public, but I will follow his lead. We're so close, so, so close. Our team is incredible, real, committed to quality and so much fun. But gosh, how I want to give you the secret channel some of the work is on, but should I do that, I realize my death would be imminent.
We have so much work to do in such a short amount of time, but come hell or high water, we'll make it happen! I cannot wait to take you all with us on our adventure, our dreams, and for you to become a part of our lives.
I'm so excited I'm not sure I can sleep, but I have to. I'm working a fundraiser tomorrow and have to be up with the sun!
So, good night all, sweet dreams, and be on the lookout, great things are coming our way, and I want each of you by our side!
