I have to be honest, I have not read my book Grieving Dads: To the Brink and Back since it was published in June 2012. I have read the book multiple times as a draft and through the editing process. I have done a few book readings of the first chapter or two at support groups I was invited to, but I have not read it from cover to cover since it was published. That being said, I do believe I am in need of a “tune-up” in my attitude and I believe rereading the book can dial me back in to what is really important in life. A reminder of how far I am come since the very dark and desperate days of trying to survive the aftermath of losing two children.
I have become restless and frustrated with myself in recent months. Restless because I want to accomplish and do so many things but there are times I just can’t focus long enough or have the energy to follow through. I believe a lot of this is tied to the after effects of the impact my mental state took from the blow. I need a reminder that getting out of bed with a smile and a spring in my step is a HUGE deal and I should not take it for granted, I should be proud of myself instead of beating myself up for not doing more.
I do plan on reading the book over a few month time frame, but this time I wanted to do a virtual book reading. I would video tape me reading the book while stopping at critical points and discussing my thoughts on the subject. However, before I spend the time and energy doing this, I wanted to find out if anyone would be interested in following along in the book and participating in the discussion.
Would you be interested I participating in a virtual book tour?
