If you read my blog or my book, you know I have been through a whole lot in my life. Sometimes I wonder how I survived, but God made it so I always feel I am a survivor and I will overcome no matter what life throws at me. I feel like I have walked through fire and come out like the Phoenix reborn into something bigger and better!

I am always telling you that all that you want you can achieve and all you need to do is to put it out there and believe.

Yes, I do practice what I preach. I have made a vision board every year since 2008. Even in that horrible verbally abusive marriage, I kept one in my garage over my washer and dryer and every day as I washed and folded clothes I would stare at it. I would envision my life the way I wanted it, I put pictures of what my home would look like when I would finally be free, the places I would go and the feelings of gratefulness, peace and joy I would feel then.  I never once stopped believing and guess what? All of those things did happened!

I went to Greece, I started my own business, I bought my own home, I did a triathlon, I jumped out of a plane...I did everything on that vision board. When I started my bucket list, way back then, I put on the Tony Robbins’ walk on fire seminar. It was symbolism to me. I knew I had been through fire and I wanted to show myself and my readers that anything is possible.

Being a single mom and knowing how expensive this was, I knew it would be a long time for me to able to do this but I kept it on my vision board and kept believing that it would happen.

I meet a client a few months ago and while I was organizing her home, I found a bunch of books from Tony Robbins. We started talking about him and my vision board. Two weeks later she called me and told me she purchase tickets for me. I was so speechless, I cried! Yes, I put it out there, I believed and now it was coming to happen, just like so many other things on my vision board!

There is no dream too big and nothing is impossible if you believe! I am living proof of that so when you see me constantly saying I will be a New York Times bestselling author, that I will have an international blog, that I will be on the Women of Faith tour as a motivational speaker, that I will be on Oprah Super Soul Sunday and Tyler Perry will produce my life story… you can laugh all you want but I believe in all that and more. It's never too late, you’re never too old, it's never too big of dream to dream!

All you have to do is believe and look at that...

Thursday I will be walking on fire. Ha! I have walked through fire and now I will be walking on fire! NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE IF YOU BELIEVE! Live large, laugh often, love with all your heart, and dream big!
