I wanted to give my blog friends a brief update on a few things.

I have finished up the final draft of my next book, Notes from (Over) the Edge. It will be going through the copyedit process and then published in digital and print versions. I’ll keep you posted on the release date.

“YOU are supposed to be here.
There was always supposed to be YOU.
That other person you have created and prop up for the world to see is an imposter. That other person you think you were supposed to be, or told you should be, or convinced yourself you needed to be, or that you determined would be better or make others happier… is a lie.
That’s not really you.

YOU are supposed to be here.
There was always supposed to be YOU.
That you needs to see the light of day – the light of your acceptance. Thinking you are flawed, defective, ugly, unlovable, incurably broken, and beyond hope and that God also sees YOU this way … is a lie.
That’s not really you.

YOU are supposed to be here.
There was always supposed to be YOU.
By now that you has become buried beneath layers of judgment, hurt, rejection, self-protection, and self-condemnation. But this world needs the you that is tuly the way you are.
Not a made up you, or fake you, or should you because
that’s not really you.

YOU are supposed to be here.
There was always supposed to be YOU.
You have the courage and power to free you and be you.
There is only one YOU. Who YOU are is God’s gift to you. Who YOU are is your gift to the world. That YOU is good. That YOU is beautiful. That YOU is loved, worthy, and wanted. And that’s no lie; it’s the truth.
That is the real YOU.”

– Jim Palmer
