“the facts, Ma’am just give me the facts…”
over 11,000 people live in Cocoa Beach, Fl
what was the percentage of people
upset over the taking down of the glass bank?
how many thousands of photos were taken
during the meticulous process of taking it apart
piece by piece for salvaging?
how many memories did you recall
as you walked by the bank?
for a northerner who is a recent transplant
in this beautiful city
i was filled with the excitement of
what could possibly fill up this space?
i was glad to not have to smell the black mold
or see a tired old worn down building every day
across the street from the beautiful sunrises
which reflect off of the monument of
11 time world champion surfer Kelly Slater
we deserve beauty in Cocoa Beach!
i love living here.
i love the people
I opened my tiny Bali Studios here
8 years ago
and have been teaching women and children
for 6 years now.
i am filled with gratitude every time
my studio is filled with laughter, creativity
smiles and lasting friendships.
i have been embraced by Cocoa Beach
and for this i say thank you.
now as i expand my business to include coaching
you may ask yourself, why?
well, in 2013 there were 41, 149 reported suicides
18% of the US population suffers from anxiety
20% suffer from depression
24 millions have eating disorders
all in all 57.7 million people in the US
suffer from mental disorders…
these numbers to to me are astounding and overwhelming…
one needs only to drive down A1A
and you will see homeless people
we all know there are drugs
and alcoholism effects too many…
but i love my town because for the most part
it really is awesome and we are no
different from any other town
every place you go there are problems..
for those of you who don’t know me,
i am a 53 year old artist
born and raised outside Chicago
I have a bachelors degree in education and art
i also have a art therapy certification
and i minored in religion
i am married
i have three grown children
who many of you know
and two dogs
who i love love love
i have very deep faith
and believe in God.
faith grew me.”
I have written a book
Nautilus: A Message of Faith
and a workbook
two more sets will follow in this series…
I have been blasting
just trying to get
you to ask me
what can you offer me?
getting you to take the leap
towards healing your life
through your faith…
by hiring me to be your coach,
you will achieve
i will walk you through
step by step
or as i say in my book
chamber by chamber
until you reach the top
of the spiral staircase
and are happy.
you will learn
what causes your
anxiety, sadness, insecurity
to name a few
i will teach you life skills
everything around you
you will learn to embrace flaws
to laugh at stumblings
and to get back up
find your buoyancy
we call life…
so instead of looking at the glass bank
and complaining about how
have been saved
you will look with new eyes
at the beauty of releasing
that which is holding you back
and living truthfully
with a dream
i am living proof
let me help you today…
