Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting
Lynn Grabhorn

Last year I had a client who kept telling me, “You have to read this book I just finished, it is so fantastic. I am going to buy it for you and bring it over. The author, Lynn Grabhorn, sounds exactly like you!” “Sounds great,” I told him. “I will look forward to it.” A few weeks later, “You have to read this book. I keep referring to it and everything you talk about is in it.” “Okay,” I told him. “Just give me the name and I will buy it.” “Excuse me, your life is waiting,” he said. “I can’t say enough about it.”

Life got busy and I didn’t have time to purchase it. I was in the middle of editing my own book and found little time to read others. A few weeks more went by and another client came by to visit. “D, you sound just like an author I read a few years back. Her name is Lynn Grabhorn. Have you ever read anything by her? Her book is called…” he thought for a moment and continued, “Let me think.”
I chimed in, “Excuse me your life is waiting, right?” “Yes! Did you read it?” “No,” I said, “but you are the second person who asked me to.” That night, I bought the book, but I still didn’t have time to read it. It sat on my coffee table piled on top of magazines and other books I needed to get to. It was calling my name, but I ignored the call.

Another few weeks went by and a third client came to see me. He saw the book lying on the table, “Oh, you read this book? It’s great isn’t it? Actually, she sounds just like you!”
Well that was it for me. That evening, I set out to not only read it, but finish it, and throughout the entire four hours, I felt her energy. We did sound alike, but that is not surprising. Truth resonates, especially when you are speaking about energy and the law of attraction, but there was more at work here. At the end of the book, I was not only enriched by her words, I had a clearer picture of where my book was headed. I had been struggling with the layout of “The Ten Commandments of Divorce” and her format was very similar to what I was trying to accomplish. With her book as a “guide” I was finally able to put the pieces together. The next week, I whizzed through my editing with confidence. My book became better because of her.

When I looked her up to try and email a thank you, I found that she had passed on. A shiver ran through me when I read the obit. “No wonder! She must have been trying to help me all along!” For over three months, I was scratching my head for answers, and there she was, answering my SOS. She couldn’t have tapped me on the shoulder any harder, but I was being human and too busy with life to hear or feel her nudge. I have learned since then to pick up right away on the little nuances and suggestions that I receive. Help and guidance is always there for us, we just need to clear our heads, and sometimes our schedules, so we can avail ourselves of all that is out there for the taking. “Thanks Lynn, for all your support and most especially, for waiting for me!”

Love this book!
By Male - Age 43

Love this book! D recommended it to me last year when I was going through a tough crises. It was just a coincidence that I purchased it on Thanksgiving evening and started reading it right away. I finished it quick, but over the next few months, whenever I felt overwhelmed, I would refer to Lynn’s words and it brought me comfort and inner strength. Reading it made me feel more in control of my life and its direction. More importantly, it made me feel grateful for what I had instead of what I usually did, which was concentrate on the negative. I highly recommend it, especially if you have life issues that are dragging you down. Thanks D!
