I can die happy now. My son loves my book! 🫶Forgive me if this sounds hysterical. The stress has been weighing on me. As a mom, you want nothing more than to protect your kid, and I worried that I had hurt mine by publishing my story, which included scenes centered around his childhood.

Tosh experienced an incredibly stressful period starting on the day Beautiful Writers came out two summers ago, coincidentally, right around the time he read a scene about 1/3 of the way through the book that hit too close to home, triggering a memory from his childhood that he was still wrestling with. “I gotta put it down, Ma,” he said... “I’ll listen to the audiobook as soon as it comes out,” he promised. I was proud of him for choosing his mental health and creating boundaries for himself, even if it meant I had to wait patiently.

However, waiting made me sad for multiple reasons. On the one hand, the audiobook kept getting delayed. Ugh...

I can’t wait to share the rest of the drama with you—son-approved—on today’s blog: https://bit.ly/3xLmvCT (in bio).

Linda Sivertsen here is some magic 🪄 I listened to your interview with Rhonda Byrne and Kelly Noonan Gores. Then I started delving into gratitude practice and thought “Ooh I should enter Linda’s audio book competition (I’d had the screen shot ready to go for a while) and… I won 🙌 one of the prizes 💃🏿 🌟 🔮
