Hey there! We’re almost on the heels of another month! And for me, another year 😉 (More on that later as I get ready for my yearly blog summary and thanksgiving).
I’m happy to finally announce the date for the first leg of my Music, Arts & Motivation Festival 2018 (formerly Book Talk & Jazz). Save it on your calendars: Sun 29th July!
For the new blog followers, I can almost guarantee that this here event is something you have never before experienced … at least not quite in this way. The broad concept is usually done in the US and UK, but of course the theme would be different.
Officially launched in April 2016, the event concept was originally intended to bring to life my 3 books which essentially addresses you finding your niche and coming full circle with your potential and God-given gifts.
Phew! I know that was a mouthful, but to put things simply: It’s not always practical to live your dream(s) unabashed.
What may seem glamorous on the outside, may be far from it, if your heart is not in it when you end up being the one on the inside!
But for those who dare to dream those Big dreams; it can be a crazy-fun-risky-worthwhile experience if your heart is in the right place.
Especially so if you’ve buried (or nurtured) your talents and passions for an uber long time and other people can now benefit from what you have to offer the world.
I shall not bore you with my personal story to following my passion yet again. I will say this (shh tho) I’ve been crawling slowly (and silently) towards these goals for many years. And from where I sit, I am not even close to getting to where I want to go as yet.
What I do hope for, is that one day my efforts will crescendo into a universal and practical measure of success for those who stand to benefit.
What I’ve found is that I am not alone in my ‘lofty’; grandiose, or what may seem like idealistic dreams. That’s why I have invited other exceptionally talented people to share this platform with me.
What’s in store. There’ll be mini-talks on leadership, branding, sustainability, ethics, professionalism, intrapreneurship, entrepreneurship, purposeful work and more!
The format will be completely engaging, fun, funny, motivational, easy-to-digest and process – making it unbelievably unforgettable!
Huge bonus! Of course music is what unites our souls together in this divine dance of life. Our very own Caribbean sun-of-the-soil Solman will be making magic (of the good kind) with his beauuutiful soulful songs that mirror this year’s theme: Carve your Path, Make your Mark!
There’ll be prose fiction readings from THE best (book) editor/coach+artist/creator eva! Patricia Grannum and other awesome folks who will be reading from my other soon-to-be launched (short) books (:
What I love more than writing itself, is to cross paths and connect with these awesomely awesome, talented, passionate, electric, real humble, unassuming souls.
The common bond within all of us, is that we’ve been doing our purposeful work under the radar for several years/decades, without the bravado or need for approval to validate or give our work meaning.
So much so that when I tell them how great they are, they don’t even believe it! And I’m not laying it on thick just to pay lip service (because FYI I can’t fake it very well). I do it because they/we need to hear it more often, since it’s fulfilling for our work to be appreciated in a totally genuine and real way esp by the people who need it.
For the truly discerning, you too will feel it in your core when someone is telling you the truth. Not the truth that you want/crave to hear, but the universal truth that you know and feel in your heart and may secretly wish for the world to know too.
Countless others have done this for me when I had (and still have) doubts/misgivings, so it is only natural (once I can), that I do everything in my power to spread the love. You can view the line-up here under the events category. Be sure to also stay tuned as more excitement unfolds and I recap what transpired at the last three events.
You’ve got only one life to live. If you live it right, with pure intentions and a good heart the world/God/Universe will lead you to the right people and situations at the right times to make it happen, as your goals become a living, breathing reality.
Nobody said it’s gonna be easy. But if you do it right, it may appear that way (to the onlookers). Be the person you want to attract and all else will seem effortless.
Grieve when you have to. Retreat when you have to. Be still when you have to. Get angry/vent when you have to (behind closed doors preferably). Choose your inner circle wisely. Choose your career and environment carefully, so you can thrive and inspire others in the process to truly live their best lives, no holds barred.
On another note. It’s vital to know when it’s time to fold and let go of anything/one that no longer serves you emotionally, physically, psychologically, spiritually or otherwise. In sum, that which is not good for your health – professionally or personally.
Pick your battles. Everyone has the potential inside of them to manifest their desires. If you consistently work on true enlightenment and evolution with pure intentions, you can live the life or your dreams. Not the one on TV or social media, but your dream life on your own terms which is a soul-searching-work-in-progress.
