Too much sadness, anger, frustration had accumulated. I couldn’t express what this destructive fire had consumed in me.
And yet, I knew it had to come out for my own survival.
We can’t move on and rebuild ourselves on a pile of ashes. We must clean up first.
So, I washed it with a lot of grammar and typography.
It was my therapy, I didn’t plan to publish it, but so many people encouraged me to share my story, the blog was just the beginning of this adventure.
It was a long and difficult path, remembering while I must forget.
All our story from the beginning, from the birth of love to the preparation of our wedding.
Then, the unacceptable breakup. Remembering everything in its smallest details, remembering moments that I would have liked to bury deep in my mind, repress as they say in psychology.
It’s nevertheless the path of healing, the one I chose.
To accept to move forward, to accept the reality but also all the emotions that accompany it. I smiled, laughed, cried while writing this book. I poured my flood of love and disappointment into each of its pages. Sometimes, my feelings were too intense and took control, and nothing could come out. Other times, I couldn’t stop writing, although it was 3am.
I always liked writing, but I had never finished a book. One of my dreams came true in unusual circumstances. A mixture of bitterness and pride.
My book is not published yet but I'm working on it, I'm currently looking for a literary agent and a publisher.
However, I wanted to share with you already, the fruit of my therapy!
An excerpt will be published regularly on the new page Book (on the top right), not to mention passages in some of my articles as in:
Read again the Blog Guide too, to enjoy fully my website.
Again, thank you for your love and support, I couldn’t have done all of that without you.
Below is the excerpt I chose for the occasion.
Happy reading to all!
Love & Book,
My Solo Wedding in Santorini
Chapter Santorini, excerpt:
All the year after, I kept telling myself how lucky I was to go back to Santorini. This island had bewitched me, so magical and majestic. I had not been able to discover everything, and I was happy to see more this time. But also, to visit Santorini with the man I loved, the one who would become my husband. No doubt he would fall in love with this island just as I had been. The photos of our wedding were going to be stunning and we were going to spend an absolute unforgettable week.
