First of all, I say THANK YOU all for your blessings and birthday wishes. I am so grateful that I have been truly blessed to have had such an amazing year in my life. My daughter has completed all of her academics for her Masters in Psychological Counselling. My son has been promoted to Criminal Investigator and got engaged one year ago. So much to celebrate! My Clients have done extremely well during the pandemic, they endured me even when I gave the que to hit the gas and not the brakes! Leverage your strengths! Now is the time to show your GRIT (growth mindset, resiliency, instinct and tenacity). The most humbling experience of my 56th year, Yes I am 56 and earned every year, is the fact that so many have read my book, Eat While You Dream. You have humbled me in a way that you cannot know. Thank you.
So the next year to come… Yes I have BIG dreams and short terms plans. My biggest dream of all is that You, those who have chosen me as your friend, will hear about my cause. Neeshali, Andrew, Arun and Sydney have dealt with this in their daily lives. Lisa and Jen(Lighthouse for Life), you deal with it every day.
If there is one gift all y’all ( yes I LIVE in South Carolina J) could give me, that would be making yourself aware of the incredible crime being committed in human trafficking. Read the books, In Our Backyard, Nita Belles, and The White Umbrella, walking with survivors of sex trafficking, Mary Frances Bowley. And, for those of you who love fiction, A Walk Across the Sun, Corban Addision ( a little too real for my liking). I have been truly blessed to travel the world, including India. Please, let’s make this next year an opportunity to heal yourself and others. I have been blessed for which I am incredibly thankful.
Short term you ask…. Just a small thing on the list call Ironman (to celebrate my 57th).
With Love and Gratitude,
