What I Needed

My friend Bo Sebastian sent me a message a few weeks ago and told me had a new book coming out.
I soon went to and in a few days Bo's latest book, "Your New Story, Your New Life" ( The Metaphysical Mind) was at my door.  I know there is Kindle, but I love the feel of paper in my hands and I knew this would be a book I wanted on my bookshelf.

I met Bo many years ago in Nashville.  He was my vocal coach and soon became a good friend.
He is an author and yoga teacher and life coach as well.  Bo's book came to me with a message that I needed.  One paragraph spoke to me strongly I cried.  " Everyone gets a certain amount of energy  each day. You can spend all your energy on the needs of others and forget about your own dreams or you can define time each day to channel good energy to your own new ideas and desires."

I had identified myself as a care giver years ago, and though I taught others to take care of themselves and follow their dreams, mine often fell by the wayside.  Usually because I was too busy helping someone else.

It is interesting to read this passage in Bo's book, because for the past couple of months Rick and I both had acknowledged that if we wanted to achieve some of our dreams we had to let go of some things and work on what we wanted.  Bo's words just reinforced what we had discussed.

Bo's book is insightful and thought provoking.  I know not everyone is interested in metaphysics but it is a subject that I love.

Hoping that your weekend has been what you needed.  Ours was has been one of rest and taking care of things around the house.  Just what we needed.

Wishing you a Monday that brings you the transformations you need, don't forget to laugh out loud.


  1. Sounds like a fabulous book and I feel that I've also done much care giving with raising our family and working in health care. Those can really have you putting yourself on the back burner. I've been slowly stepping back at work with the idea that I'll retire in a few years and I don't have the energy to spare with some of the issues I deal with there. Enjoy your Monday also!

  2. So insightful. It is a good thing to remember
