“Do your best and forget the rest.” – Tony Horton
This page is always under construction, because everything in life changes. And as with most things that stagnate, Rachael would become a dull girl if she did not embrace the new, the surprise, the PLOT TWIST! of life.
Change can be difficult, too, but therein lies the beauty of life. Every day holds something different, but we don’t always see it until we look back to where we’ve been. And each of those small events, choices, and surprises shape how we live the next day.
What brings consistency to our lives is who are in the midst of it all. You will always be you, and you get to choose how you will handle the road of life, be it with cautious determination, reckless abandon, or anything in between. But we often forget and let circumstances dictate who we think we are and how we react.
Just like many of the characters Rachael writes about, you might not realize just what an amazing person you have locked up inside you. The one who will sacrifice for those you love; the one who has more courage than you thought possible; the one whose compassion and honor inspire others to greatness; the one who doesn’t give up, even when there seems to be no hope; the one who lives so quietly, no one realizes a fierce lion lives inside.
You are more than meets the eye.
Rachael believes that of all people and wants to capture this in the characters she writes, whether it be a short story or a full-length novel. Her family, especially her four kids, inspire her to reach deep within to find the real person underneath the shell of humanity and expose the soul of what makes people tick.
Now, that’s enough cliché driven speech. It’s time for you to share a little about yourself! Say hi in the comments. What inspires you to do good in the world? What makes you angry? Who or what would you be willing to die to protect? What makes you crazy? Happy?
