“To my wife, Beth. The night we met, you had the courage to take my hand and dance. We’ve danced together through friendship, dating, marriage, parenting, challenges, joys, and life ever since. Thank you for being a constant encouragement, a wonderful mother, an awesome wife, and a best friend. I love you.” – John O’Leary’s dedication from his book ON FIRE
Over the weekend, I gathered with nearly 1,000 of my friends and family for an amazing celebration with live music, inspiration, drinks and fun.
To those of you who were in the room (and those of you who were there in spirit), I can’t tell you all how grateful I am for your support, your belief, your posts, your shares, your investment, and your celebrating the successful launch of my book, On Fire, with me. [Check out the pictures here.]
While this weekend’s On Fire Book Launch Party was amazing, I haven’t always experienced this amount of love and positivity.
Recently I was asked to write an article to share on BeliefNet. I wrote about one of the harder moments that occurred nearly 30 years ago.
DON’T SHOOT THE HORSE
“If he was a horse, I’d shoot him.”
