What Dreams May Come? Follow Yours

I had a dream. I wanted to write a book.

Then, I wrote a book. But, procrastination and fear kept it locked inside my computer. Then one day, I knew I had to do it.

I had to stop thinking of it as a dream and take action.


A dream without action is a fantasy.

“All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.”    – Walt Disney

Here I am opening the mailing envelope with the draft copy of my book. I’m seeing it for the first time. It was magic. All the dreams, the work, and the perseverance. I pushed through all the blocks, the self-doubt, and the fear. It felt so good to hold that book in my hands!

Here’s the thing.

If I can do this. You can do this.

Do you have a dream you’ve been putting off?

What is it?

Why don’t you go for it? What have you got to lose?

Know Yourself • Be Yourself • Live it Like Crazy!

P.S.  I didn’t just finish one book! I finished two! Sucess builds confidence, and confidence gives you the courage to take risks. Oh, by the way, I am working on my third book!

A Challenge: Be the Change You Want to See

This blog post is off my normal focus, but is it really?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_single_image image=”1509″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]It’s been a rough couple of weeks. The news has been impossible to ignore. From last week’s threat of nuclear war to the neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville to people in government resigning en masse. And, our President continues to act inappropriately. It seems things are going crazy! Our country is coming unhinged! You just have no idea what is coming next![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

I am frightened, very angry and overwhelmed with sadness.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The wiser part of me knows that I have to let go of the anger – because we don’t need more of that energy. Being frightened doesn’t serve me or anyone, so I can let go of that, knowing that I am safe. The sadness, it’s real, but also not severing to bring the kind of energy this situation truly needs. What I can be is compassionate, kind, and understanding.

Sound Pollyanna? In my heart of hearts, on the deeper level of my soul, the higher self of me understands that good is working in the background. Hatred, bigotry, racism, xenophobia, sexism, all the “isms” are being uncovered and it feels overwhelming – and it is, but you can’t fix something that is hiding in the shadows. The more it is exposed, the more the good grows. Just like the gathering in Boston. There were several hundred “alt-right” and neo-Nazi demonstrators, but there were estimates of 20,000-40,000 counter-demonstrators there for love, peace, acceptance, and equality. Good is at work.

Today I heard something that resonated with me and helped me feel so much better.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Hidden within any problem is its own solution: hidden within disease, dysfunction, disharmony, and desperation is its own healing, because at the center of everything, as Whitman said “nestles the seed of perfection.” Right now, we know that something good is wresting out of that seed.      –Dr. Joe Hooper

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The CHALLENGE:

Here’s our work. Start with Social Media. Sounds trivial but as we know from our prez, social media is powerful.

I’ve already made a commitment to this and I hope you will as well.  I changed my Facebook profile picture and cover photo to something that represents acceptance and equality. I refuse to spread hate in any form and will no longer post anything “ANTI”. Remember Mother Teresa who refused to march against the Vietnam War.  She said if there was a pro-peace march, she would gladly be there! If we each stop posting, and reposting hate messages and focus on the good we can elevate the energy towards good! Let’s be PRO-love, PRO-peace, PRO-acceptance, PRO-equality. Before you hit that “post” button think about the message you are sending out in the world. Does it represent the kind of energy you want to create? Hate does not get us to love! Only more love will get us there!

“Where there is a cut, the healing has already begun. We may not be able to see it, but it has started.” –Dr. Joe


I urge you and challenge you to be part of the healing. Know that good is coming, it may look terrible right now, but good is coming. Love will prevail. Be a champion for tolerance, acceptance, equality, peace and most importantly, love. Please join me![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Know Yourself • Be Yourself • Live it Like Crazy![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In the spirit and energy of love,

Becoming Zia and Becoming You! Interactive Workbook

[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1337″ img_size=”large”][vc_column_text]So . . . I wrote a book.  Can you friggin believe that!

And, . . . it’s going to be available in paperback and Kindle versions on Amazon August 15th.

It is so amazing! For those of you who know about my journey, you know what an accomplishment that is for me! I am very proud of myself and happy to have overcome the fears I had about doing it.

The funny thing about it is that it jump started me and now I can’t be stopped!! My creativity is flowing.

After finishing the prologue of the book, and writing about the lessons I learned from the experience, I thought that a lot of people could benefit from what I had learned. It occurred to me that I could create a workbook that would follow along the journey, and allow anyone to explore the same lessons. So, I did![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1383″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]With the help of a very talented designer named Matt, and my editor Stephanie, a book was created called Becoming You! Interactive Workbook.

Just like that, I have two books! Mind blowing!

Here’s the thing, it’s not just another book! It’s a tool for learning, growing, and living a happier life. Whatever happened to me in the process of Becoming Zia was part of something bigger, and I have accepted that. I am not blowing my own horn by saying this, it’s just the truth. This thing that is happening to me is coming from inside and it wants to be expressed.  There is no holding it back.

Here are a few pages of Becoming You! for your to preview.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery interval=”3″ images=”1366,1367,1369″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]A couple of weeks ago I announced that the first 25 people who pre-order Becoming Zia: A Tale of Transformation will get a FREE pdf download of Becoming You! Interactive Workbook. The good news, there are still some available.  So, don’t miss this opportunity.

Now, I’ve added another BONUS!  Anyone who buys the paperback of Becoming Zia on August 15, 2017,  will also get a copy of the workbook in paperback! (That’s a $19.99 value!)

Click here to order.

There’s even more exciting news coming. But, this’s enough for now! I’m so thrilled to be sharing these two books with the world! I hope you enjoy them![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Know Yourself • Be Yourself • Live it Like Crazy![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1398″ css=”.vc_custom_1502217032242{margin-top: -50px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Note: When you pre-order your book send me an email or message me on Facebook to let me know.
