Listen to others that share what they know. . .

…then share what you know with others.

 

I just made it through a very moving and emotional weekend, no, nothing bad happened, in fact it was one of the best moving forward weekends I think I have experienced in a very long while. “How can that be”? you ask, well,

First; my editor Rachel Small and I realized the we were completing the final polishing of Volume IX, I did pretty much the last of the tweaking and completed all of the Chapter intro pages for the Volume, after which I sat back for a moment and I was struck with the sad realization that we only have one Volume left to do, after that, the series is done. All ten Volumes of BawBs Raven Feathers will be completed, my life as I have known it for the last 4 years will be over. Two trips to NYC for awards, countless amazing people I have met, back and forth editing and tweaking, proof reading, designing, marketing, distribution, sales, book launches, signings…sighhhhhh…but then I thought, what am I thinking, I have more to do, a children’s book, a coffee table book, a Biography, I’m not even close to being done, I’m a writer, and as my friend Carrie always tells me, Writers write.

 

Second; I came to the conclusion that everything I believe in and share with the universe is coming to light in my new adventure with Nerium. I attended a training seminar on Saturday and listened to Mark Michaud tell a room full of people to believe in themselves and to believe in what they are sharing. But it wasn’t just his message it was the way he presented it, he laughed and smiled and chatted with us, he was real and honest, and I guess most noticeable of all was he believed in us, all of us, no one person was any better or worse than the next.

 

I have been writing about this for four years and now it is coming to light in this new adventure, the Nerium products I have made the choice to share make people feel good about themselves, the Nerium system that backs the people that share these products is designed to make us feel good about what we are doing, The Nerium group of people stand behind every person that is involved, from the customer to the five star marketing directors, everyone believes in themselves, and everyone believes they are sharing more than just the wonderful feel good positive growth products, they are also sharing smiles, which is right up my alley.

 

So, I guess what I am saying here is that although my weekend was emotional, it was also filled with growth, inspiration, affirmation and so much positive energy. Bottom line is, if you don’t try you will never know. There are millions of books out there, did that stop me from writing ten more, NO, there are lots of products out there, did that stop me from sharing Nerium, NO, stand up people, take a chance, do something that makes you feel good, then share your smile with the world. I am no better than you, I am no worse than you, I did take the chance I was given to look at Nerium and it is changing my life.

 

Here is your chance to change your life, Japan opens its doors to Nerium July 19th (yes, the entire country is opening its doors to a product that is off the charts successful)

Australia opens its doors to Nerium in December (again, Yes, the whole entire country)

I learned this weekend that Florida is wide open to learn about Nerium, as is NYC, Canada is brand new to these amazing feel good products.  I am not offering anyone the chance to build a Space Shuttle here, I am just letting you know your chance to wear a smile and share a smile is right here in front of you… Take it.

 

If you have a moment and want to see what a door of opportunity looks like then pop in to either one of these sites, look around, feel the energy, then send us a note and tell us what you think, we would love to chat with you and tell you how easy it is to be happy, and to live happy.

Nerium-A-Ripple-Story-from-Karen

You can’t build a future. . .

. . . by just thinking about it.

 

You have to actually do a little bit of work, and I’m not saying back breaking labor, but some work that involves planning and research (looking into your dreams and goals) then a little bit of architecture (mapping and blueprinting the framework) then finally the use of the tools (the time spent and the effort given), just a small amount of “work” will make your future that much brighter.

 

Now having said this, I am finding that most of society would rather do less work to produce larger gains, less effort for more return, and in a perfect world this would be wonderful, however, we live in a world where we get back what we put in. So why then when we are offered a chance to create our own happiness which in turn will generate successes, do we turn our backs and deny ourselves the chance to live our dream?

 

Recently I was given the opportunity to choose to create an adventure with a highly regarded, history making, billion dollar, anti-wrinkle age fighting, feel good about yourself, be happy company, and I could have very easily turned my back, because it sounded too good to be true, but this time I was ready to do a little bit of work on my own terms, this time I made the right choice, I have created my own perfect world, and surprisingly all it took was some research, some listening ( to the many others that have made the same choice before me) some belief in myself and my ability, and some sharing, that’s right, I said sharing.

 

So there you have it, the “secret” to success isn’t a secret at all, no magic involved, no maps to a treasure, the secret is just to make the choice to walk through a door of opportunity when it is presented, I mean, if the door is right there in front of you, open, shouldn’t you at the very least poke your head in and have a look around? What if you find that through that door is the happiness you have been seeking, what if you find that happiness happens first and THEN you become successful.

 

So now, having read all this, I am going to share with you the path to a door through which the opportunity for your happiness awaits, but this isn’t a small door, this is the door to a continent, a part of the planet that until now has been untouched by this kind of opportunity, oh, I know what you’re thinking, this all sounds too good to be true, well it is this good and it is true, Nerium is opening their doors in Australia soon and each and every one of you can make your dreams come true… all you have to do is believe you can be happy.

 

Here is the door, not just one door but three, you can choose your own door, at random, or use the energy of the universe, just pick one and poke your head in and have a look around, if you are curious ask us, we would love to share what we know and point you to your own new path of adventure.

Don’t base your dreams on what yesterday brought. . .

 

. . .create them with what tomorrow will bring.

 

I listened to a person last night, a person just like you and me, he is part of the Nerium family and his name is Mark Michaud, he spoke about dream building and goals, and he spoke about believing in yourself. This really hit home for me because I have already lived one of my dreams, so I speak from experience when I say dreams can happen, but when I listen to others that are living and sharing their dreams it makes my heart happy.

 

My dream was to write one book, to fill it with inspiration and energy, to have the reader open it, read it, feel it and become inspired in themselves, to understand the power of a smile and to create achievable goals. I lived that dream, I wrote that book, and I went on to write 4 more. I am still creating these little books with another 5 books in the works, my dream is not yet done as I will continue to write and share my energy long after I’m gone, those that can feel the wind will share my smiles.

 

Now, I am meeting other people with dreams, they don’t just have dreams, they create their dreams and they are living them, everywhere I go now I am meeting these people and they are sharing their dreams, they are smiling, they are happy and all they are doing is sharing what they believe in. They are not writers they are believers, they are not sales people they are sharing people, to some of them it is not about the money or the potential earnings it is about the dreams and the Why.

 

It donned on me last night while I was listening to Mark, that one of my dreams was to share with the universe the energy and the desire to believe in yourself, now I am feeling that everyone who has read my little books has helped me to live my dream, so it is my turn to give back to the world with an opportunity to create yours.

 

I am now part of the Nerium family, a group of amazing people around the world that dream, that share, and that believe in a product that will make you look and feel amazing. Every one of these people had the same choice you do, to create a dream and live it, or not. Every time I hear one of these people speak I think of how amazing it could be if everyone could live one dream, well, this is a chance to do just that. I have reached out to my friends, because they are my friends, I have shared with them and given them the choice, now I am sharing with the world, and giving everyone that same choice and the same opportunity exists to live your dream.

 

I am a writer, (so my editor tells me) so I can write what I’m thinking and share it with you, okay, so here’s what I’m thinking;

 

Below there are two links, pick either one randomly and have a look at what’s inside, look at the before and after pictures, look at the research behind these products, look at the choices you have, then go and look at yourself in the mirror. You will see you, can you imagine what you would look like if you tried these products, then, can you image what your life would be like if you could live a dream you created.

 

That’s it, it’s that easy, no sales, no pressure, no stress, just you, your choices and a link to an adventure that you can create. Your life is all up to you, your happiness will always show in your smile, then its your smile that shows in your successes.

Oh, and one more thing, I have another dream, one day my little books will become part of the Nerium inspiration, because I believe they will help you believe in what you can do.

A new adventure. . .

 

. . . always begins with the first step.

 

So here I am, sitting high up on the edge of success overlooking a scene of what my life will become, I am taking the first step to my new adventure. I realized a short while ago that I was there, that place which becomes familiar to artists and authors, people of all sizes and types and backgrounds with all sorts of talents. That place where dreams are so close to becoming reality that you can feel it, then reality hits and you realize that you are two nickels short of a dime to make it happen.

 

The starving artist, yes I was there, too proud to ask, too tall to dance, can’t sing to save my life, but, I can write… so… here is my story;

 

Several months ago I was having coffee with a very lovely young woman I work with, I can’t recall how we got on the subject but she mentioned Nerium and the life changing anti-aging products they share (I am old school and dared not ask the age of a woman) but, not one to miss an opportunity I asked “do they have something that can help with this?” as I pointed to my finely aged well weathered etched with character gypsy face, “ Yes” she said, “Yes they do, try this for 7 days and see what you think” and she handed me a bottle of Night Cream.

 

Since that day I have been to several Brand parties, multiple Market parties and met some of the most wonderful, supportive and might I add successful people ever, and as each of them will attest in a heartbeat, “Nerium found me”.

 

From this point I can say I have tried the products, I had to before I went any further, after all, I am an award winning author of Inspirational books, I need to believe in something before I can be inspired and I believe in Nerium. Not only does this well-worn and wind weathered old face now have a younger, toned (still full of character) look to it but my brain even feels younger (and I’m sleeping better) thanks to the EHT (the age-defying brain supplement).

 

So, there you have it, I am out of the closet now, my pride that has kept me from admitting I needed help, now has me being proud of both my books and a company that has given me the chance to help myself by sharing what they offer with others. Those of you that know me, know I am not a salesman, my little books sell themselves, those of you that don’t know me, well, now you know I am not a salesman, but what I believe in is something I can share with those of you that aren’t sales people or maybe you are… I can share success.

 

Do your research, if I could reach through the screen and hand you these products to try I would, but until that becomes possible take the word “the written word” of an Author on a new adventure and look at Nerium, I believe they will help me get Series two of BawB’s Raven Feathers printed and on the shelves, and I believe they will help you achieve your dreams as well.

I you have any questions, any dreams, any place you would like to be other than where you are, contact me and I will share with you this path of a new adventure.

How do you know if you’ve missed a beat. . .

. . .if you haven’t danced to your own drum?

 

It has been a while since I have had a look at my Blog site, the stats are showing that people still trickle by and read what I have written, but, I felt guilty for not contributing for such a long time. I have followed others as they embark on this writing adventure and I am so proud of them and their creative energy, it just seems to flow once you are in the zone. I find myself struggling of late to find that zone, I still post my morning inspiration each day, but the writing I do for my books is not coming to the surface, I feel it, I just can’t put it into words.

 

I am not worried however, my incredible Editor Rachel Small keeps nudging me while she works on the content of the remaining volumes. That, as I have mentioned before is so important, to have a flowing, comfortable and copacetic working arrangement with your editor, no pressure, just an honest understanding of what’s involved with what you are writing. One day I will wake up and there it will be, on the surface, ready to type.

 

Now this is not to say I am not busy, quite the contrary in fact as I am busier now than when I was working full time. I have moved south of the city to escape the pressures of big city living, the traffic, the drivers, the lack of motivation, my life was becoming ritualistic, patterned if you will. Okay fine, I was in a rut, plain and simple.

 

So here I am in a different, calmer, more laid back environment where I find the time to concentrate on doing what the Universe wanted me to do; help others to help themselves. Currently I am still Co-facilitating my Literacy and Parenting programs in the city for the Further Education Society, as well as Mentoring the up and coming authors at the Oilfields High School in Black Diamond AB. The wind also led me to the FCSS in Claresholm where I am now working with an amazing group of Ladies that excel in sharing their kind energy to those that need support.

 

And if that’s not enough I am now the proud Papa to a very handsome black stallion named Dracula’s Raven, (he came to me named Dracula, I added the Raven to share my spirit with him) together we are working to build a bond and to share what we both know about life. Eventually he will be under saddle, which I will call a graduation day for us both, and we will ride off into the sunset.

Until that day I will continue to write, and I am learning as I live;

With each new day you share yourself in the smile that you give.

Imagine if you will. . .

. . . that we still have the will to imagine.

 

I have been doing a lot of soul searching lately, and no, that is not why I have been neglecting my writing. I have not been writing because I have had nothing to share. This is a Blog after all, it is an open forum to share our thoughts, the ones we think the universe would like to hear about, and although I have kept busy with things, the universe is a busy place, so I was being thoughtful.

 

I am engaged in a new program (Further Education Society of Alberta) at a local facility with my Mentor and Co-facilitator Lois, and in this program I am seeing things a little differently. The participants are an awesome group and enjoy the fact that we are there for them, but my outlook has changed. I am looking at life a little differently, or should I say a part of life, which I think we lose at a very early age. This part of life I am focusing on is our ability to use our imagination.

 

We lose our imagination when we start school, (in my opinion) we are placed at a desk among our peers and we are told to learn, and for the next 12 years straight our minds are filled with facts, figures, information and opinions, we lose our imagination completely. Oh I know we get caught day dreaming a lot, but that is not the same thing. Now, some fifty years later I am finally able to imagine again, to run through puddles like a grizzly chasing salmon, to see shapes in the clouds and imagine myself flying through them with outstretched ebony wings.

 

The “key” I think, to enjoying life and being happy is to simply imagine you are, but without the ability to imagine, we are doomed. I have the absolute privilege to have the opportunity to chat with some very wonderful people in my day-to-day adventures, and I am appreciating the fact that most everyone I talk to is thrilled to learn of my thoughts on our imagination. It seems as though all it takes is the simple turn of a tiny key to unlock a gift that each and every one of us is born with. Now if we can attach this tiny key to the smiles we share in the wind, the world will be that much happier.

 

On another note, my little books are now available (paperback editions) through Chapters/Indigo and Create Space (change the little grey box in the upper right from “site” to “store”)  and the Hard Cover Boxed Set of Series One is available at all the New Age, Spiritual, Mind and Body shops in Calgary and surrounding area. Please see my website for locations and stores. Plus I can share with the Universe that my little inspirational books have made it over to Japan, this is just the start of a wonderful adventure to come I imagine.

Stay tuned for information on Series Two.

 

If you want to find your happiness, just imagine that you are

Once you do it looks good on you, now its time to touch that star.

You can feel the excitement. . .

. . .because you create it.

 

Today I sit on the doorstep of my future, the door is wide open, because I opened it. My future will be, by design, the future I would like to see because I designed it. Well, truthfully, I would like to see what I have designed become reality, but that would mean my little book needs to be successful out there, and so far it’s doing really well.

 

But it doesn’t stop there, I have learned there is more to this writing thing than just writing and publishing, there is now a new appreciation of others that have written or are writing a book. I feel some sort of camaraderie, a bond of words and actions that create a friendship in the same room or across an ocean. The events in this adventure have happened slowly, first the writing and illustrating then editing, designing, printing, publishing, sure, it sounds fast written in a sentence, but it has taken 3 years to arrive here, and now that I am here I am seeing and sharing smiles with others just like me.

 

Allow me to share an image I just got in my mind, I started this adventure at the bottom of a mountain, I had no idea how high this mountain was because half way up there was a layer of clouds, I couldn’t see through them, no worries, I started climbing anyway. Sure enough I came to the clouds I had no idea what to expect but I knew which way was up so I kept climbing, the clouds dissipated, I could see the top of the mountain and now I start to see other climbers, others like me that have started there own adventure and chose to climb through the clouds.

 

At this point I will be honest with you, I may not reach the top of this mountain, but I will never stop climbing and enjoying the view from wherever I am, and just so the universe is aware that I’m putting it out there, I would love to reach the top and place my flag…uh… books, among the many other amazing authors that have preceded me.

 

Until then, I will smile with those that have made it through the clouds on the same mountain, Kyla McMullin – Warrior, Patricia Lee Como – 21 Days in Maui, Patricia Klinck – Each Step is the Journey… and I have met so many more wonderful up and coming authors and writers. I will continue to meet more on this adventure, and I will continue to climb while keeping the horizon always in my view, together we will give the world something to read and together we will share the smiles of our successes, and the lessons of our successors.

 

Success can be measured on an outcome that you set,

and should be based on the enjoyment that you get.
