Who I am is a relation between myself and others.  By discovering myself, which is always continuing, I can help others discover who they are.  I am a writer/an inspirational speaker, and consultant.  I am a voice for those who think that they don't have one.  Everyone is someone, no one should be left behind or by the way side.  I believe in the greather good and I need to be an example for myself and for my son and for my family and friends and there is sooo much out there and so many things available for us that sometimes we get caught up in the "oh, poor me, I do not know how, or no one will listen" that feeling sorry for ourselves becomes who we are, how we define our self.  Everyone has to start some where 20, 40, 60, changes are and can be made everyday.  Have the belief that you are worthy and just take the first step and one thing, one thought, one moment at a time and truely believe in this and who you are, want to become and see what happens.  Take the time to write it down, be specific.  Take the time to go to an AA meeting or the local community center and volunteer and see what is going on in the world and put some prespective in your life and see how much you truely do have.  You.  Your health prehaps, a smile, the willingness to want greatness, even if you are sick and down and out, there are people out there like me who want to give you a voice and help so you can take the first steps to learning you potential and start giving back and then helping others.  This is true inner peace and outward happiness, see how much the simplest thing can make you feel good and change you life toward the right way, direction, step.  Whatever you want to call it.  Always wanting more and continuing knowledge is always available for you.  GOd is always there or a higher being, if you an agnostic, but something is providing you the will otherwise you would have gone by now.  One less drink, one less pill, the strenght to ask for the help you need/want.  For you family, will always be there if they are able and forgive you, for they do not want to see you fail in this precious life.  And, precious, it is, do not waste on more moment feeling sorry for yourself-think about those that have less, or are more sick, or are something less than you, and get up and do something about your situation and be on the road to helping yourself and others once you get to that point.  I want to tell you that I believe in you, I believe that you are worthy and I will help you, give you advice and motivate you to stop the negative thoughts and have only ones that you bring you inner peace and true happiness.  Your path is yours to make.  Wealth is not happiness or peace, it does make things easier, but it is not that.  When you see the look of a homeless person, who thinks that they are forgotten, when you had them a gift certificate for food, and feel hope and the gesture puts a smile on your face keep going.  You can only do what you do.  You can not make others do what you want, so do with out judging.  Give with out expecting in return.  And do this in your own life.  You can heal your own life just by believing in yourself and knowing that you can and that all along others knew it too, it just took time for you to realize it.  Approval or non-approval, I would love to hear your thoughts, so please e-mail me if you have something ot say, good/bad/indifferent, I want all voices, opionions.  Thank you, take care, and believe in yourself and know that who ever you believe they want only the best for you and GET GOING.  Peace and Light, :) Rae

About Me Me? Simple really. I like to live simply. I do love the finer things but I believe in quality vs. quantity. I am a knowledge seeker, for I think that I believe there is always more you can know and share. I am a very happy, giving, passionate, sensual, sexy, harmonious person who loves to share all I know with others. I love myself, I take of myself so that I can take and give to others. Family is the most important to me. My friends, which are a very close knit are considered family in my book, are just as important. I am a Mother, a Daughter, a Sister, and friend-even to family (as noted above) :). I enjoy reading, writing, teaching, cooking, entertaining, shopping, and the outdoors, but especially the beach. I believe in looking good inside and out. Looking good on the outside is a reflection of your inner self and by expressing yourself through your outside shows how you feel about your inside.
