Hold on Batman; it’s gonna be a wild ride! Wow, it’s 2018, and as I planned and predicted, everything is unfolding right before my eyes. I literally visualize a little snowball at the top of the hill as it begins to roll down. As it rolls it grows and grows and picks up incredible momentum. That is what I am feeling! It’s exhilarating!

For many years, I’ve known what I will be doing in 2018. I’ve visualized every detail and have created the manifestation that is happening right here, right now. It’s mind-boggling and exciting, yet crazy at the same time.

I’ve learned the mighty power of manifestation. Although most of my life I brought people and experiences to myself that I didn’t realize, when you know what you are doing – deliberate creation – and you see it coming to you, you really can’t ever get over it. Crazy amazing is all I can say.

My daughter will graduate from high school in June and will turn 19 a few days later. In August, she is heading to Pullman to attend school at Washington State University. I was not willing to be gone for extended periods of time while she is home and still in school. Once she is off on her own, that is my time to launch.

I know many people look at the future empty nest and see it as scary, sad or painful. Not in our house! My kid is rock solid and confident and has been for years. She is so ready to take off and fly. The fun thing is, I will be flying at the same time.

when you know what you are doing – deliberate creation – and you see it coming to you, you really can’t ever get over it.

I’ve been writing my story for decades! I’ve always known I had a book in me; it just took me a while to realize exactly what it was I wanted the book to say!

The title of the book is, “From Pond Scum to Super Woman. How I went from Abused to Zen, Powerless to Powerful in One Lifetime.” In a nutshell, the book talks about my disastrous adult life as someone coming from a home and childhood with no role model. I share some pretty candid details about stupid mistakes I made along the way. All the while, I was doing the best I could based on what I knew at the time on how to adult!

I describe the transition experience from leaving complete chaos and trying to latch on to a life of strength and empowerment. When all you have ever known is chaos and dysfunction, it’s practically impossible to leave it behind when it is the only place of comfort you’ve ever known; crazy as that sounds. It is actually easier to stay in an abusive situation than it is to take a leap of faith into the unknown. Leaving it behind was hell, but I did it. From there, I’ve continued to grow. I’ve become something and someone who 25 years ago, I couldn’t even imagine could exist.

Today my book is completed and in the hands of the publisher. It was finished in February and in the hands of Balboa Press by the first of March. Balboa was the obvious choice for me as they publish for Hay House. I want to be affiliated with Hay House because Hay House readers are my audience. I have a published author doing the editing so it will be done when Balboa is done with the Content Review phase.

As my book is coming to fruition, I started workshops with the National Speakers Association’s Protrack course which “accelerates your speaking business.” Everything is falling into place exactly as I have imagined.

It is actually easier to stay in an abusive situation than it is to take a leap of faith into the unknown.

Because I came from a horrible childhood and have been able to turn my life into something beautiful, it is my duty to share my story. If I can help even one person pull themselves up and turn their life around, it will have all been worth it. I had to go through every bit of it alone and I know how hard it was for me. I want to be that hand for you to hold, that voice in your head and that planted seed that inspires you to risk changing your story.

Nothing is more exciting than entering this new phase of my life. You know when you are in the vortex when your emotions align with your actions. I am so aligned that I feel energy oozing out of my pores!

Watch out world, Cari is ready to launch!
