There once was an alligator named Sam.
He lived in a clogged up damn.
He ate peoples noses, and bit off their toses.
And that was my alligator Sam.Brilliant, I know. I was quite proud of this poem and thought, “there is something to this writing thing.” Words became a playground of expression for me. I discovered that I possessed a rather deep soul (Deeper than I could deal with at age 9, or anyone around me for that matter) and I needed an outlet to release and sort out all this romanticism and intensity. Writing was a way for me to configure my deepest thoughts, spout about my observations, experiences, solutions, then tie them all together with a poetic and rythmic bow. It has been a special relationship… me and my pen. (and eventually my Mac) I always found it easier to say what I really wanted to say… in writing. Writing Blast Off has been a culmination of years writing, working with thousands of clients to move them to a better chapter in their lives, and a strong desire to help others reach their potential. In fact, it became a real pet peeve of mine when someone would come to see me for coaching or homeopathy and they would proceed to give me every excuse as to why their dreams, or life, for that matter, would never work out the way they wanted. I cannot tell you how many times I wanted to shake them and say, “You are amazing. Don’t you see?!” Over the years, through many trials and tribulations, I finally learned how to make my dreams come true. (This book is my biggest) And believe me, they were not handed to me. At age 30 I set out on the world as a single mom, no money and no emotional support. However, I did have three things going for me: Determination, stubbornness, and hope. Always hope.
