Are You in the Game?

Are You in the Game?

“You miss 100% of the shots you never take.”
Wayne Gretzky

Follow your passion. Has there ever been a time in recorded history where we heard this advice as much as we’re hearing it now?

When I was growing up passions were something relegated to the sidelines. You focused on making a living, raising a family; the day job. Life can distract us from our dreams but we shouldn’t let it.

Today it seems you hear this advice all the time. Maybe it’s just here on the Blogosphere where positivity and inspiration abound, I don’t know. All I do know is this: it is time to get in the game.

No more sitting on the sidelines watching other people play. No more dreaming of playing while cheering for others who do. No more procrastinating about it. If you’ve got a passion, you’ve got to do something about it.

I’m happy to tell you that I’m in the game now. For the past fifteen months I’ve been writing a book and I’m launching it this month! It was born of my passion for helping people, inspired on my trip to Greece, nurtured by my Reiki practice and driven by my love of writing. Sink or swim, I’m taking the leap!

I’m very happy to be announcing the title for the first time, here – today – at Life, for instance! Drum roll pleeeeeeeeeese as I run at full speed toward the end of the wharf and prepare to…


My book is called:

 The Happy Place

We need to get in the game! Even if just a little, even if just part-time or early in the morning or late at night. We need to give voice to the passion within us – that thing that when we do it makes time fade away!

What dream have you been sitting on which wants you to get up and take a leap? What makes your heart sing? Are you in the game?
