Dreams Do Come True!


It has been way too long! How are you? I hope you have been good, better than good, great! And of course grateful!

Doug and I have much to be grateful for this year. We have reached our goal (dream) of a successful relocation from Indiana to North Eastern Florida; St Augustine to be precise!  The move happened last Oct and we are just about getting settled! Moving at anytime in your life is a big venture, but let me tell you doing it over  50 is something else! lol

Now I just wait for Doug to retire! That should happen in the next 3 years. In the meantime I keep busy with my travel business and of course, writing.  On that front though……I have slacked.  I want to change that. One reason I desperately wanted to move here was to be inspired to connect more to earth and God. Something within said I needed to do this, so we made it happen. Now I need to get to the writing aspect of it. I have definitely fully embraced the relaxation of my new community! I love it. I have continued to develop a love for photography, I have included some of my recent photos.  In case you are at all curious to see more, you can view them on my Instagram account found at @Desperatelyseekingchristine  there is a link here on this page also.  I would love to follow you back!

So while we are busy living our lives, of course, life continues.  We are blessed to have welcomed a new granddaughter last Dec and are doubly blessed by welcoming another new granddaughter this coming Oct!  If you are keeping score the grandkid count now sits at – 4 boys and 7 girls!  huh, imagine that…girls are winning! Ha!

The book! As you know The Gratitude Project was released last May. It went to Best Seller several times….. I am very grateful for the experience of writing and releasing my book. I will give this as an example of how I feel about it- I received a review from someone on Goodreads, in her review she said the book just wasn’t for her. She said she felt it had too much God in it and that I drew too much from personal experience when writing my book….so too anecdotal.  That may be a negative review to some; but to me….she made my day! That was an excellent review!! Her review says to me that I did a good job and met my goal! No such thing as too much God…. I was actually worried I didn’t give Him enough space! And the book was about my personal experiences, how else am I to have an informed opinion? Too many people think you should  study,study,study and then, and only then, offer opinion! I think you need to live life and share experiences! That is real. I like real!

I will end this now, but I want to say I hope 2018 is finding you and your loved ones in good health and good will! If you are in need of healing and peaceful thoughts please take a moment now to connect to my energy….. I give it freely with love. Sending healing, peaceful, relaxing, thoughts and prayers to you and yours!!



Fear- The Destroyer of Dreams!

fearisaliarFear is not only a liar, it is a destroyer! Its sole purpose is to keep you where you are! Fear is driven by your ego, and your ego feels very comfortable right where it is and will fight to keep you there!

When fear rears its ugly head try to remember it is not your friend, it is not trying to help you. Now I am not speaking of that nagging voice, or feeling, deep down that keeps you from walking off a cliff or into a situation which may be dangerous. We need to use common sense! I am speaking of the fears that keep us from trying to move outside of the box of our existence that our ego keeps us in. And it is within that box, that comfortable box, where our dreams DO NOT exist! So take that step out of the box and tell your ego to back off; you’ve got this!

Just something to chew on today! ❤  Love and gratitude always! Christine

I Will Never Give Up! And Neither Should YOU!

I am 54 years old and I have had to fight for everything in my life. 54 years! I am tired…..but I will never give up! hellI have survived through it all and I will continue. You can throw it all at me, I am used to it, but expect me to stand up and fight if need be! I will not only survive I will thrive!

The path that I am on may not be easy, it may be taking a while longer (than planned) to see the difference, see the impact, but I will not stop, I will not back down! I know what God has put in my heart. I know what I  have been through and am going through, and I have faith that it all has purpose!  I can look back over the last 36 years and know it has all been for a reason! Good, bad, and worse!

The bad can come from the ones you least expect it to come from, from those that you believe have your back- it is OKAY! It is all for a reason and we are stronger than we think! We will stand and fight and we will thrive!

Have faith, with me, let’s have faith together that we will thrive and succeed and do everything that we know we are meant to do!

Bring the dream out of your heart and into the universe and expect it to happen and happen in a big way!

I am praying for all of us to hang tight to our strengths and our dreams!  Let us not be weary, let us never give up!
