In the middle of finalizing a mini book tour for next month, the interesting thing about this is that I have done it before for the first time this year I was privileged enough to do one and thoroughly enjoyed it yet I am chatting last night about the upcoming one and the possibilities and I stopped, gripped in fear!

I walked outside, in the cool night breeze to breathe and as I was walking back in the Universe sent its message right on cue, "Girl please, you can do this, stop trippin" Fear is so normal but feel the fear and do it anyways!!

The bigger the dream the bigger the fear but then the bigger the achievement and maybe the bigger the party after!!!

I spent some time on Saturday at the NGC Bocas Literary Festival in Port of Spain Trinidad. The festival brings together literary works from all over the Caribbean and the diaspora with a number of world renowned writers and poets. What struck me at this event was the honest and open stories of a few young men who were incarcerated from the age of 15 for an average of ten years at the Youth Training Centre (YTC).

I found myself literally weeping listening to their story! And there and then I vowed to do something! We have young people from the age of 11 being incarcerated and locked inside for 23hours a day, we have a rehabilitation system that instead of rehabilitating it creates more prisoners and resent…
You can be saved simply by changing your
mind. Nothing outside you has to change in order for you to be happy. You can
simply choose happiness, right now." And our response, typically?
"Hell, no! I won't be happy unless s/he changes first."ACIM I have been practicing something. Changing my state of mind on the spot, just to see this power that I was told that I have been born with. Acknowledging the feeling and then making a decision to change the state Hello................... the thing works The key is acceptance then choice The clarity is in the midst of the confusion The love is in the midst of the conflict Do you have the courage to override , to keep moving forward If you just keep moving forward, the fear will subside, the doubt will subside don't worry about getting rid of it, you can't get rid of thought, it cannot be undone But you don't have to activate it, downloaded it or activate it Deborah L Johnson says - "your doubt and fear does not have to t…
So when you’re feeling grounded, rooted, and strong, really think about to whom you can give your strength. The beautiful thing about it is that giving it away doesn’t deplete you, it reinforces your power, bringing light to yourself and to the person who needs it. So, figure out who needs your strength today and shine a bit of love their way. You’ll become stronger. Maxi McCoy
I was billed to speak at the International Women's Day Celebration at the Hyatt Regency for ACCA Caribbean - the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants, I was quite nervous, but determined to give it my all and all
The host for the day was one of the top morning show TV hosts in the country and she sat next to me. We did the small talk and she introduced me to the audience, I went up did my thing and came off the stage where she pulled me aside,
"I want you on my show"
"When can you come?"
"Can you come this week?"
