How Big Are Your Dreams?

Do you have big, bodacious dreams bogged down by a hefty amount of fear?

Follow Your Dreams

As one of my favorite relationship coaches, Hedy Schleifer explains, “Fear is excitement without breath!”

Read to the bottom of this blog post for a list of questions to ask yourself about your accomplishments, successes and gratitudes for 2017 and what you are allowing and manifesting for 2018.

For me, 2017 was a very productive year.  I created and hosted 3 virtual summits
The pages remain standing and the replays of all the videos are still available.

Women and Love Summit

In the midst of scheduling and interviewing the 47 speakers for the Women and Love Summit, Hurricane Irma struck South Florida causing all business endeavors to come to an immediate halt.  The week before I had rearranged some of the scheduled interviews to attend a life changing mastermind group where I connected with and invited 8 additional speakers to my already packed summit.  During the hurricane I remained hunkered down in my new apt, not realizing the ultimate danger that I fortunately escaped.  No electricity except for the generator light in the building hallway.  No air conditioning in the intense Florida humidity.  And, I found out later, nobody else had stayed in my building. Fortunately, I was able to use my laptop computer until the battery died, working feverishly on creating my Love Mastery Success Blueprint.  Also, I continued to connect with my family and friends on my cell phone until that battery died.
What a relief I felt when I was finally able to leave the apt to visit and stay overnight with my friends, Linsey and Frank, because they continued to have AC in their home.

My 96 year old beloved aunt passed away in 2017.  A few months later her daughter, my cousin, had 3 strokes and was temporarily placed on dialysis 3x/week.  She has been alternating ever since between being in the hospital and a rehab center with her entire right side paralyzed, receiving much less than acceptable nutrition and nursing care.  So I have found myself visiting my cousin in this very unpleasant situation during the holidays while everyone on Facebook appeared to be partying, enjoying fun-filled family times and celebrating with friends.

As 2017 comes to a close, I have been reminiscing not only about this past year but I am attempting to make sense of my entire life up to this point.  I signed up for a course called Bridge to Unstoppable which provided numerous techniques, including Vision Board, BioTapping, Prayer, Dousing and more – exercises designed to facilitate the release of past failures, blocks, betrayals and fears while choosing and honoring my dreams for the future.  I also listened to my Daily Mentor Videos and Dream Builder weekly lessons with Mary Morrissey, master creator for living your dream.

Tears have falling, tears of sadness about the poignancy of life, tears of regret for choices I have made that cannot be undone, and also tears of joy for what I have accomplished and my unlimited potential to bring joy and passion and unexpected possibility for happiness to the lives of all those I touch.

My intention for 2018, what I am allowing to manifest, is for me to reach out and touch the lives of over a million men and women about the power of healing all of our relationships through love.  Starting my year in early January with weekend training programs at the Speaking Empire, I am looking forward to my Group Power Day where I am creating my signature presentation about Creating Loving Relationships by Healing Through Love.  I will be revising and revamping my Love Lessons for the Soul to provide even more value and more individual attention and I will offer complementary Love Mastery Success sessions throughout the year.  My 7 Week Love Mastery Success Secrets program provides a blueprint for love in this 21st century with its new challenges and different scenarios.  But the laws and practices of love and passion, romance and living a purpose-filled life remain the same.  Love is the answer to most questions and all challenges.

My other goal for 2018 is to bring my health and fitness up a notch, back to a level I have not experienced in many years.  My Our Healthy Living Facebook Group has kept me on track to achieve my goal of walking 1,000 miles in 2017.  That goal was reached on December 15th with 16 additional days for adding more mileage.  In 2018, my goal is to hone in on my nutrition and diet habits to optimize my physical health and return to a natural weight that suits me.



If you have not already done this simple exercise, please take the time to do so now. It may take a few hours of your time and you may be delighted with the end result.

  • It gave me such clarity about where I have been , what I have done, and what are my next steps.
  • Give yourself the time that you would give to a prospective lead, client, family member or customer.

    • Stephanie,
      How beautiful, to start the entire year with courage, pride and confidence. With that attitude, anything and everything is possible. The key is to maintain that positive attitude when you run into challenges, when things don’t work as expected, when people don’t keep their agreements and disappoint you, or when you don’t live up to your own expectations.

    • Hi Dr. Sharon,
      It does take some time. Doesn’t have to be as extensive as this list. Doesn’t even have to involve a lot of details or any writing. Just sitting quietly to reflect upon the past year, what worked and didn’t, can help to set up in a good direction for the new year. And then just a few minutes visualizing what we would like to create and accomplish in the upcoming year can set the tone for the year. Then we can let it go and let the year begin.

  1. Hi Erica,

    Wow…I didn’t know you were alone in your building during the hurricane. You are brave my friend.
    Sorry to hear about your aunt and cousin. Life throws us those lemons we have to deal with. Emotionally it must have been so draining.

    I just love the list that you have given us to ponder on for the past year and beyond. These questions are so important for us to ask ourselves. I know I’ve done some of them myself. I also mapped out some goals I do want to achieve in 2018. I try not to give myself too much to handle….I can always add to my list lol.

    Have a very blessed new year,


    • Donna,

      I usually go into detail about what I have already accomplished in the previous year and then leave it more fluid and open for the upcoming year. We can’t know in advance what opportunities may appear, what new things we will want to get involved in, etc. But we can have an overall idea and some guidelines of what we would like to achieve in the coming year and beyond.

      Have a happy and healthy new year,
