Remember last week when I said I was focusing on getting the first three chapters of my novel ready to send out to publishers and agents?

.

In my head, the chapters are DONE, emailed out, and the “just right” publisher is reading my pages, smiling. In my fantasies, the magic is already happening.

.

.

…and yet, not one page has been sent out. Depending on how your mind works, you either think I’m a healthy procrastinator or a delusional dreamer. The truth is somewhere in between.

.

What I have learned as I have become more aware of my personality patterns is that I have the certain propensities: I long for the ideal scenario, create wildly, and then hide under the covers because I think no one will ever understand me.

.

I am an Enneagram type 4.

.

Stevie Nicks and I supposedly share the same type: romantic, creative individualist.
What do you think? Maybe?

.

As I’ve been preparing my chapters for lift-off, I’ve also been spending time with my friend, Tami Hackbarth, talking about the Enneagram on her podcast, 100% Guilt-Free Self-Care.

.

Tami and I got to know each other through yoga, and continued our friendship when we realized that personal growth was a passion for both of us. The Enneagram came to me when I was going through a particularly challenging time in my life a few years ago.

.

Since then, I have read everything I can get my hands on, watched countless videos, and attended a week-long Enneagram Summit. If all goes as planned, I’ll be either attending and/or hosting an upcoming Enneagram workshop.

.

If you’ve been feeling stuck doing the same thing over and over and not knowing why, wondering why some people drawn to you and others give you the side eye, or you are just plain curious, join us over at the podcast HERE.

.

With love and acceptance for exactly who you are,

Holly
