I never imagined that the path to following your dreams would be littered with so much beauty. Of course the road gets ragged with with its fair share of speed bumps, winding roads, and caution signals which you may also know as fear, cash flow, and time. The truth is, those stop signs existed before and they will always be there. You see, when I wasn't doing much of anything but working to live, I still managed to move forward in my life. I actually thought I had a really good life then--and I did. But this kind of living is different; it has a wonderful, magical, surreal appeal to it. Every word that I write, every motivational message I send out into the universe, every book that I sign, and every heart that I touch means something dear to me. It makes me come home from a long day on my j.o.b. and work more diligently, think more purposefully long term. I imagine far into the night of how I can be of better service to you. I hope that something that I write will flick the switch for you to begin to run after your dreams? I want you to experience this feeling for yourself. Yes, it is that amazing.
To be totally honest with you, I started this journey wanting to be a rich and famous author. Seriously, who wouldn't want that? Somewhere along the way, I made a right turn and my goals changed and so did the way I see riches. It has become more about encouraging others, giving to our future, and healing our families by speaking what is true. Truth is, holding the payment in my hand for the purchase of my book just can't compare to how rewarded I feel when someone says to me, "because you did, I think I can." When you find the inspiration in me to go and really live, my life is good.

I know sometimes I go off on a tangent. But hey, I'm a poet, a writer, a mother, a sister, a daughter, a friend and a Christian. I have an OPINION about almost - well everything... I rant with Integrity and Truth, and Humor..and full of Love..that's all I have. It's who I am.
I'd love for you to let your opinion be a friend to mine.
