PERCEPTION is 2020!
This is what my Muse whispered to me one morning a couple weeks ago. At first I thought it meant I needed to publish my 10th book, PERCEPTION which has been sitting on a shelf in my mind for over a year. I had initially planned to release it in November, 2018, but it wasn't ready. I realize now it's because I still had A LOT more to learn. Now I'm thinking the message too meant a LOT more than just the book.
Everything in our lives is based on perception, our individual unique perception which is created by every aspect of our lives and the filter we view life through. I realize there is so much more on the subject I want to share in the book in addition to the continuation of the story from my 7th book, PEARL.
What I love about life is that I'm always surprised. Although I'm quite intuitive, it's nice to envision an outcome and then have it appear in a way that is so much better than I could have hoped or imagined.
One example came last month as I had hoped to go out on the boat to spend time on Mother Ocean with a fellow MerSis here in L.A. We were excited as it was a glorious warm day. However when we arrived at the dock, we were the only ones there and the Captain informed us they needed at least ten people to go out. We were so disappointed as we drove away. I suggested we go to Malibu and hike Point Dume and possibly catch a glimpse of some whale from above. MerSis however suggested we grab a bite to eat first and then explore El Matador State Beach which I had never visited before. I was excited as I always love exploring new places.
Well, when we arrived it was like a dream. Beauty in every direction. The BEST part was the timing. It was December 12th and we arrived at 12:12pm. It was perfect as if it was the place we were meant to be. As we walked barefoot in the sand and sea, I felt such peace amongst the chaos that is our world today. We walked through the rock formations and it really did feel as though we were going through a portal of sorts, stepping into the next chapter of our lives. I captured the photo above and every time I look at it, I feel that sense of peace. It was truly magical.
We didn't see any marine life that day, but it didn't matter. We were precisely where we needed to be. So the next time your plans don't work out as you imagined, try to take a moment and appreciate where you end up. It may just be a nice surprise.
How to stay ORGANIZED in 2020!
I usually have the same routine at the end of every year. I purchase a new Day Planner, a new Journal, a new wall calendar and things to keep me organized once the New Year rolls around. This time around was a little different. I wanted to create some structure in my life around my daily activities. My background in event management comes into play in terms of being organized. I function better with structure.
I knew what I wanted to focus on daily, my Morning Routine which is so important. I begin each day with a Gratitude session followed by some ways to focus on my intentions. I also wanted to focus on my Top Priorities and the action steps I would take daily to fulfill them. I then wanted to keep track of my Hour of Power, 60 minutes broken down into three areas (Exercise, Mindfulness and Study). I also wanted to wrap up each day with a Gratitude session and also have space to Journal.
I couldn't find anything online or in stores that included everything I wanted, so I decided to create it myself and did so in no time. It was fun and I'm thrilled with my new planner. As I began writing in it, new areas popped up in my mind that I wanted to keep track of, eating habits, finances, etc. I simply made room for everything and ideas popped up to revise the planner for next year.
Creating a routine each morning to go through my steps and write down my intentions and priorities feels great. Even if I don't accomplish everything I set out to each day, I don't punish myself. I simply acknowledge that I did my best and I celebrate what I do accomplish.

2020 Writing for Hollywood Summit!
I'm thrilled to announce I will be hosting the Inaugural Writing for Hollywood Summit as part of the 2020 San Francisco Writers Conference next month. Last year I led the Book to Screen track at the conference supporting writers who were interested in adapting their work for the screen. It was such a huge success that I was asked to expand on the track and create a one-day summit. The result, this fabulous event that I can't wait to share with those interested in a career in the entertainment industry. I'm so looking forward to returning to the Bay Area and excited to support you every step of the way.
