Hello, friends and all who are part of Brenda’s world in social media-land and elsewhere. If you haven’t heard already, I’ve written and published a book. It is some of my stories from the past that I’d like to share with you and your loved ones. I’m sure some of you will even recognize or have heard of the events. Or maybe they just relate or resonate with you.
For most of you who may know me as a friend, colleague, sport or dance enthusiast, or rebel with a cause (you know who you are;). Depending on the timeline of our history together, you are in my thoughts of appreciation. And I want you to know what I’ve been up to these past days.
And for those of you who do not know me very well, well here is your chance to get a glimpse of my world of ups and downs and everything in between. And if you know of anyone who has been through any kind of bullying and abuse in their life, they may also be suffering from Mental health issues or Fibromyalgia. So be gentle with them.
As you may or may not know, I’ve become a lot of people in my life. I’m a chameleon of emotion depending on who’s in my life. I’ve been unhappy, lost, unfulfilled, undecided, and scared about what to do with myself. I’ve asked, Is this all there is? Was I destined to be stuck in soul-sucking jobs and involved in crappy love relationships? I searched and never found what I was looking for, until now. Why? I was looking in the wrong places and seeking comfort in the material realm of my existence.
When I awoke from the perpetual hangover, I used to block my pain, I finally realized what motived me, moved me, inspired me to feel worthy of a fabulous life. The jolt was captivating and insistent. Because guess what? The answer was inside me and around me. I resolved to change. We all can Change our Story. What a radical concept! Which is why I wrote my book.
Although I believed there were no angels or guides at my life-changing event. They were there, by my side, I just needed a nudge to allow them in, again. At my darkest of nights, there was no glimpse of the holy. Just me. Alone. Shaking my fist at the world and proclaiming, “I will survive!” (Cue Gloria Gaynor). It was a “spiritual” calling for me, and it had a wicked sense of humor. My Universe became wrapped in a relationship of love, peace, discovery, hysterical laughter, tears and relief. Geez! I thought as my future unfolded, I need to share this! I’ve walked this path and I can help people avoid some of the deep, ugly pit-holes.
If you think the Universe has it in for you and you’re lost and unsure of what’s next, this is a reminder that you’ll be okay, no matter what the outcome. I believe your worth is not something to ignore, and it’s not negotiable. You can demand that your needs, wants, and desires are met. Dream and follow those dreams, ask more from yourself than you’ve been willing to accept before, be powerful, feminine and masculine, be silly, laugh, cry and make a difference. You deserve to be proud of yourself and what you do. Do you truly think you’re destined for the worst or the most mundane life has to offer? Bah! I don’t believe it and neither should you.
My book talks about the challenges and weaknesses that I’ve experienced, with some that I am not so proud of and some that I am. Be forewarned; there are some ugly parts and some lessons with blessings. There are some rock-bottom moments and others where I’ve seen the light at the end of the tunnel. I talk about the discoveries I’ve found out about myself and others and the changes I needed to make to survive and thrive. I talk about my achievements and setbacks, where I’ve been and where I am now and where I want to be.
I invite you to come out and celebrate this fantastic achievement with me, and hopefully, there will be others. I’ll be at my newest venture in the world of metaphysics and holistic healing located at Paradise of Reality in St. Boniface, here in sunny and friendly Winnipeg, Manitoba.
