As a Jersey Shore resident, I have experienced the destruction that Hurricane Sandy has brought to communities. I have also seen how hard organizations such as the American Red Cross are working to keep people safe, warm, and fed as we move into the colder months.
If you’re able, please consider helping with a small donation to the Red Cross here: http://www.redcross.org/hurricane-sandy or please visit this link at NBCNews.com for a list of other ways to help: http://rockcenter.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/11/01/14861838-hurricane-sandy-how-you-can-help?lite
New Jersey and New York are so thankful to everyone around the country and the world who have helped in any way.
For those who have been following the publishing of my debut novel, To Breathe Free, I wanted to share my latest Kickstarter update. It thanks my supporters for allowing me more time and outlines what I’m working on with my manuscript.
I welcome you to read the update here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tobreathefree/to-breathe-free-the-first-great-american-e-novel/posts/328207

When you’re facing a fear, pursuing a dream, doing something new and different, or living your life, you will rely on trusting your gut and your heart most likely every day.
I can’t—and no one else can—tell you how to trust your gut and your heart. However, to help you here are three things to know.
1. Your gut, heart, and your mind are always connected but not always in agreement
Self-doubt, worry, and negativity lives in the mind.
Always go with your heart. That is where truth, positivity, and the right thing to do lives.
2. Sometimes you will “fail” when trusting your heart
None of us are perfect and our hearts aren’t either. But you must stay loyal to your heart because your heart will remain loyal to you. Together you will reach where you want and need to be.
3. Your gut is for short distances; your heart is for the journey
Your gut will help with quick decisions and out-of-nowhere obstacles but your heart will fuel you and sustain you, through all your adversities, successes, journeys, and for life.
Trust your heart.
