Wishes, New Days, & Popcorn!

Visualize it: Close your eyes. Get in the zone, and focus solely on your wish – Nothing else!  Another idea is to make a Vision Board. Have you heard of these? Cut out photos from magazines that represent your wish. Or, if you’re super creative and skilled, you could draw, draw, draw! 

Believe it: Don’t let the face of doubt stare you down into a puddle of self-pity.
Don’t let the hand of
negativity hold you down in the sinkhole of “I can’ts.”

Do it: Take action! If you think by sitting on your sofa – remote in one hand, popcorn in the other – is going to make your wish a reality…think again!

“Do the thing and you will have the power.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

(It’s as simple as that.) 

 

New Day, New Dreams

Today’s a new day
for that baby step
Don’t even look back
just take a deep breath

 Don’t listen to words
that may keep you still
Optimism is your friend
along with your will

 Keep your dreams in view
not allowing them to stray
With fear on the sidelines
You Can Be Brave

 Instead of your heart
wear strength on your sleeve
Stay focused with soul
and in Yourself, Believe!

So, did you make a wish?
If so, what are you going to do about it?

Poem from my book,
New Day, New Dreams

Welcome December!

Hi Everyone!

It’s hard to believe we’ve turned another calendar page, which means Christmas is only 3 1/2 weeks away!

I want to thank those of you who have already purchased a copy of my book. You are my amazing cheerleaders and I will always be humbled and grateful! Please know I appreciate YOU! ♥

“New Day, New Dreams”  would fit nicely on a coffee table, maybe accompanied by a compelling mystery or romance, flowers and candles. It would also make a great gift for someone special. 

So I invite you to visit my Published Works page…(at the top of my blog, the 4th tab over). On this page you’ll find all of my book information, including the links to order. Feel free to “like” or “comment” too! 🙂

“New Day, New Dreams” (Christmas is coming!)

Hi Everyone!

I want you to know that I have a new “page” entitled “Published Works.”
This page has all the information for ordering my book
and links for Xlibris, Barnes and Noble and Amazon.

I also want to thank those of you who have already purchased a copy!
You Rock and I’m so humbled and grateful at the same time!
Some of us are excited 
and some are not so excited,
but the truth is Christmas is just around the corner
and my book would make a great gift.
I know some friends who have bought many for gifts, already,
as they’re thinking ahead. 

So, I invite you to visit my Published Works page…

I’m excited to say that several local bookstores
will be housing my book
and I’m currently working on setting up
poetry readings for the near future.
So, the excitement continues!

It’s here – My First Poetry Book has been launched!

After years of talk and a few months of action, the final product is here. I have all of my family to thank for their ongoing support and encouragement and, of course, all of you, for your “likes” and “comments” that gave me the courage to take this step. Without you, this wouldn’t be a reality! 

I want to specifically thank my husband, Matt, for being the source of inspiration for many of the poems, my daughter, Stephanie, for her expertise editing, and my son, Michael, for his beautiful cover photo and for taking my “signature” author’s photo, as well. 

My first collection of poetry, “New Day, New Dreams” is now available to order from my publisherXlibris, as well as, Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
