Be Your Own Hero

A Healing LoveGrowing up, I remember all the cartoons of princesses sitting there looking beautiful but miserable...and they never found happiness until a rich and handsome prince rescued them from whatever was ailing their lives.

I don't write love stories like that. My heroines always meet their prince (or princess) but they aren't sitting there waiting to be rescued.

Take Kimberly for example. She's got the handsome Carlos helping her, but in the end, she really rescues herself by coming to terms with who she is now, hearing loss and all.

There's no contest what song I choose for this book and as you read it, I'd love for you to keep the lyrics in mind and remember...

There's a hero
If you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid
Of what you are
There's an answer
If you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know
Will melt away...

So even if, or when, a hero comes along, save yourself by looking deep within you. The hero is right there. As the song says, YOU can survive. If you look around you, you will see survivors everywhere. You may not even know their stories. Like Kimberly, they may have hidden disabilities.

Try to take a moment everyday to remind yourself of this.

Thumbs up to Mariah Carey for her song, Hero. *I posted part of the lyrics because some of my followers are deaf/hard of hearing and the video is not cc'd. I have no intention of stepping on anyone's copyright. 

A Healing Love can be purchased on Amazon.

  1. I'd actually like to read more about Kimberly. There are so many possibilities with the character.
