Greetings from Austin, Texas Ya”ll
Sorry it’s been a few days since my last post! The past week has been tilt-a-whirl busy. I’m still on tour doing loads of media and signings plus I just finished an article for Natural Health Magazine. We calculated that I have shaken well over a thousand hands since I kicked off the Crazy Sexy Cancer circus on 8/17. AMAZING! The word is still spreading life wild fire (THANK YOU, THANK YOU) and I am just so happy to see folks connecting, smilinging and making the commitment to return to balance and fantabulous self-love. Deep bow to all of you..
So this article I wrote starts with a really important question – How do you overcome fear in order to take action and become what I call an empowered participant in your healing? It’s really easy and I’m gonna be pretty bold and say that there is only one answer to that question. Drum roll…. Change your focus! It’s all about mental management so divert and dillute the fear by channeling it in another direction. Mine melted in the inspirational passion fires of creativity. I picked up the camera and the pen and promoted myself from patient to Journalist/Director. My new job shielded me. Tough times made for great story telling. I also never gave into the thought that I’d fail- either in saving my own life or becoming a success. Many people told me (in a snippy tone) that a cancer flick would bomb and that a cancer book was even harder to sell. OH, and that I had an expiration date. Screw that! Be a bull in a china shop. Listen with one ear and let the crap roll off your feathers. When I changed my focus and really believed in myself and bodies potential, nothing could stop me. How have you head-butted fear? Where is YOUR focus? The future is far away – are you in the present, if so open it up, it’s a rainbow gift.
OK, off to work! Have a blessed day everyone. Push buttons (in a good way) and stretch some Crazy Sexy boundaries. Can’t wait to hear from ya’ll.
Peace and vegs,
PS. I’m doing a signing tonight at Hastings (2200 South IH 35 – Round Rock, TX) and a special screening of the film and a signing at the Alamo Draft House (2700 Anderson Lane) Austin, TX. The proceeds will be going to the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition – Austin Chapter. Come by! They may not have enough books so if you have one bring your own and I’ll scribble and we’ll hug and high five.
