From time to time, I’ll go onto Amazon, type my name in the search engine box, and proudly, yet cheerfully, sit back and await the results. Although there are only two, which of course, are my books, Words are weapons too! Understanding the power of words, and Surviving the wait: How I learned to be still and wait on God, I’m still in complete awe! Still don’t have your copies? What are you waiting for? Just click on the links! I know, such a shameless plug, however, I’m very proud of myself, which is something I struggle to do. Nonetheless, I was looking to see if my latest book had gotten any reviews. Now, there have been people who’ve personally purchased a copy from me, or even online, and have already given their reviews on the book (which are good, by the way), but I’m always anxious to read others thoughts and feelings, and how my book has impacted, helped, or changed their lives, even.
While I haven’t received any online reviews for my new book, I did notice a review from my previous book, Words are weapons too, that I somehow managed to miss. As soon as I read the comment, not only was I grateful for the positive feedback, but I was completely shocked, and floored. Although the reviewer didn’t fully disclose their identity, I immediately knew who they were. This person despised me! Not only that, they made dang on sure I knew it. I know , I know, I know. You’re probably thinking, “How can someone strongly dislike you, yet leave such a positive review?” Those were my sentiments too, until I realized one thing. Sometimes, one’s deep rooted dislike for you, is often used to coverup their admiration for you. So, they’ll sit behind a monitor, because they feel comfortable enough to tell the world “who to watch out for,” but don’t have the gumption to tell you, it’s you!
Nowadays, nothing really surprises me, not even one’s beauty or ugliness, because I know that oftentimes, they can have the two! (Read that again!)
Until next time my NOTE takers!
