What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I answer that calling placed in my mind and heart that I am on this planet to help others and myself. I have found that I can do neither remaining in bed, (Yes I have tried.) I love showing gratitude daily by performing rituals of niceness to people and myself. A little something that would brighten someone's day or try to make life better for others. That always brightens my day and keeps me going.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I think I got a hold of one of my cousins adult magazines. I had no idea at the time what I was reading but I was profoundly disturbed and scared, lol. That magazine had little pictures in the articles. Those pictures and articles had me looking out of the side of my eyes at every adult couple I came across, including my parents.
I struggled with depression, low self-esteem and a fear of everything. All of that came to an end when a woman appeared to me and instructed me to gift a copy of a picture to a group of esteemed singers and authors.
Enjoy this story of transformation, amazing pictures taken on this journey, therapeutic friendships and some remarkable healing works of these great tonemasters.
