 Excerpts from the book “Depression Free: A Wise Woman’s Guide to Healing and Happiness”


# 35 Don’t be afraid to ask the right questions, and ask as many as you need.
As a nurse, I have escorted patients into a room to see the doctor countless times. They have a 20 to 30 minute visit, and then the doctor leaves the room. When I return, often the patient still has questions that should have been directed to the doc.
“Why didn’t you ask the doctor?” I ask the patient. “Well, I thought he/she was really busy and I didn’t want to hold them up,” is a popular response. “I really didn’t understand what was said, but I didn’t want to keep him/her.” is another one.
My reply is usually the same.
“Sir/ma’am, this is your body, and it’s important that you ask the doctor any questions you have, and be sure that you understand the answers before he/she leaves the room.” At that point I find the doctor, and ask him or her to come back to the room, which they’re generally happy to do.
When I was dating, I was told on more than one occasion that I ask too many questions. Then I met someone who liked the fact that I asked questions…especially the right ones! I ask until I understand.

3 Tips
• Don’t allow anyone to intimidate you into not asking a question that you feel you should.
• Never feel like your questions are unimportant…if it’s important to you …then it matters.
• In a group setting, you may be hesitant to ask a question because you think it may sound silly, but often, someone else is thinking about the same question, and like you… feels uncomfortable asking. So take a deep breath…shake off the fear, and you can begin with “This question may sound silly but…?”

Have you had situations where you didn’t speak up when you should have or wanted to? How did you feel after the window of opportunity had passed you by?

Are You Ready To Make a Choice?


Happy or sad.

Love or hate.

Optimistic or pessimistic.

Grateful or unappreciative.

Holding on to baggage or taking it to the dump.

Living with passion & a purpose or just existing.

In control of your life or being controlled by circumstances.

How’s life’s journey going so far? Is there anything you’d like to change … another path you’d like to take?
The great thing is that we’re  responsible for our own lives and therefore have the power to change the path we’re traveling.
Sometimes… F.E.A.R. (False Expectations Appearing Real) creeps in and it feels safer to do nothing…but I’ve learned to feel the fear and do it anyway! (the name of a great book I read years ago) I take little steps…like testing the pool water before plunging in for a swim.

Each day we get a little older and the reality is that none of us will get out of this world alive! So…hmm…do you want to live it striving for passion and purpose or are you content to just exist day-to-day …year to year? I’ve decided to shoot for the stars and maybe …just maybe, I’ll at least land on the moon!

We are all blessed with a gift…a talent …something we’re to share with the world… Are you ready to make your presence known?

BUT… instills F.E.A.R. (false Expectations Appearing Real) steals dreams, and sabotages visions of success and prosperity.
I CAN … is the seed you sow and nourish with patience, diligence and faith. Your possibilities will become endless.


    Whats holding you back?







You are the script writer for the movie of your life!

How is it going so far? Is there anything you would like to change? Is there another direction you want it to take?

The great thing is that since YoU are incharge and responsible for your life YoU have the power to change the script! Sometimes we know that we need to change it but F.E.A.R. False Expectations Appearing Real gets in the way and puts us in freeze mode.

Feel the fear but do it anyway! (the name of a great book I read years ago) Take little steps…like testing the pool water before you plunging in for a swim.

You‘ll find that the more you do the more confident you get …the more confident you get the more you will do!

Each day you get a little older and the reality is that no one gets out of this world alive! So…do you want to live it with purpose and passion or just exist? Do you want to be extraordinary or ordinary?

Are you going nurture and use the talents and gifts God gave you or let them die from starvation?

Yes! Life is a challenge but nothing worth having or doing comes easy, so armour yourself with faith in your higher power, confidence in yourself and  supportive people then fasten your seat belt and be ready for the ride!

Your script…Your movie!  5..4..3..2..1.. Roll it!
