Book to the Printer!!!

I’m so excited because my book, Sane Poems for Insane Moments Volume 1 went to the printer’s today. Way cool and unbelievable that I’m at this point! And to think that three years ago me publishing anything was such a ridiculously ridiculous and far-fetched thought. Wouldn’t you know that it took my son, Darian, to get me to even consider it. Coming from ANYBODY else–I never would have attempted it. Why? Well, it was when I was still in a pretty seriously co-dependent mind set and in a very co-dependent relationship with one of our children, and in a state of not yet knowing it; I still had yet to really come to grips with the fact that I WAS SOMEBODY, uniquely gifted and talented; I had yet to emerge into SOMEBODY since I was still in that mode of being everything to everyone else. My title was anything between my husband’s wife, my children’s mother, my parent’s daughter, my brothers’ and sisters’ sister, my aunt’s niece, and my cousin’s cousin. I knew I had infinite worth, that I was a daughter of a God in Heaven, and that Jesus was my Savior, because I had truly come to know it in my mind and heart. As an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I had been taught that all my life; but I didn’t comprehend it on the level I do now. I hadn’t really come to see my title as Laurie Kay Gunn Everett–incredibly wonderful, talented, worthwhile, awesome, uniquely individual me. I had to come face-to-face with my co-dependency, come to understand it, acknowledge the raw truth that I even suffered from it, and take measures to start healing before I could ever even begin to comprehend such a concept. It was at that point that I was able to first venture out and dare share one single poem with one single person.
