Words of Wisdom

 In life there are always trying moments; sometimes it may feel like a trying ‘season’.

Well, I’m going through a season as we speak. For relief, I turned to my favorite relaxation method: a good glass of red wine and a magazine. Low and behold while flipping through the high-glossy pages, I found a few special words that fell in the right order and caused my season to break for a few moments.

Let me share this with you:

Danielle Brooks, the star, Sofia, in The Color Purple – it’s her interview with Oprah. She was asked for her “Best Words of Wisdom.”

“I’ve heard a lot, but one piece of advice that’s on my heart right now is from Nina Simone: ‘I’ll tell you what freedom is to me – no fear.’ That’s the place I’m trying to get to in my life – as an artist, performer, and as a person.”

No fear. That’s where I’m trying to take my life.

Stay Inspired,

I'm a southern in my heart and a northern in my soul. I've had a few bad wines, but for the most part I've enjoyed enough good wines that it makes up for the few bad bottles. I enjoy writing, but more than writing itself, I love telling a good story, taking my reader off on an adventure starting with "What If"…. I'm a sucker for the Paranormal Romance genre. To me, its nice to be released from "What Is Expected" and believe for 250 pages in "What If's". Its like a vacation with out passports, waiting in line and an expensive credit card bill when you return home. An additional note: I've started another blog page for Home Care. I know the two are unrelated, but in my world they are. My paying job is 100% dedicated to Home Care and educating families on their new journey. One of my favorite quotes, I leave with all of my clients. "One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things." - by Henry Miller Please Enjoy, but more importantly Stay Inspired…

    No fear is a great concept. Our fears are often what hold us back from greatness. I read a book recently called Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. He talked about fear quite a bit and it makes sense to do away with the fear of things that do us no justice.
