Hi, this is your friend Moira Shepard with this week’s Miracle Minute.

In her exquisitely written book “This Time I Dance! Creating the Work You Love,” author Tama J. Kieves shares the story of how she became an author, creativity coach and international seminar leader.

As an honors graduate of Harvard Law School, Tama finds a great job in corporate law on the partnership track. She has a beautiful place to live, designer clothes, and the prestige that comes of doing everything “right” and being “successful.”

There is just one trouble.

The job is killing her.

One day during a much-needed vacation on the beach in California, Tama realizes she needs to walk away from the corporate world to save her life … her sanity … and her soul.

She does just that. She walks away from “success” to pursue her passion for writing. She cuts back on expenses; moves into a studio apartment; waits on tables to supplement her savings; and writes, writes, writes.

After many rejection letters, Tama opens the mail one day to find an acceptance letter and a check for $25. It means as much to her as if it were a million dollars – because it confirms she is on the right track.

Article by article, client by client, lecture by lecture – Tama has reinvented herself as a successful person on her own terms.
