At first it felt like the agony of defeat, then it transitioned into labor pains. Nervousness beyond measure. And my belly? OMG! It never stopped aching, even while experiencing the moment. Then finally, the rites of passage took place. What just transpired? It was the release party for my debut book, “Aspire to Greatness: Life Coaching for the Arts" as well as my new CD, “Reminiscing”, a blend of Gospel to Gospel Jazz. This moment was so surreal. I signed books until my hand and fingers were purple (after all, my color theme was purple). Someone even said, "Girl, you’re writing another book while signing books!” That’s because I wanted to take the necessary steps and time to speak into all those who took the time to invest in me - a very important lesson we should all learn.
These two bodies of work were strategically created to activate a concept which supports alignment of mind, body and soul; physically mentally and spiritually. If I had to put it a better way, in the words of a wise man recently quoted to me, the two projects support “engaging and working your individual journey of alignment, assignment that will reflect an adjustment." In addition, the two projects support self-investment, reflecting back and reinstating compassion, connection and conviction in all you do. You are important! Your time is important! Your gifting and talents are important! So, let’s get ready to embark upon your individual “Aspire to Greatness” journey.
Thank you goes out to everyone who played a role in yesterday's event and the completion of these two projects. You know who you are!
