        I don’t know about you…but, doing something new is more than a little bit scary.  I don’t know if you are like this or not…but sometimes, I stop myself from doing things just because I get a little bit intimidated or fearful.  I also had a slight case of a fear of failure…and even worse…a fear of success!  Yep, I am definately my own worse enemy at times.  How many things in life do i miss out on, because the voice in my head has cautioned me to step lightly or turn around and go back to the same old status quo; just because it feels familiar and safe?  How many times have I cheated myself out of something wonderful and positive?

         Geez, I just bet I can’t count that high, LOL.   I think about this blog in particular…when I was moved in my soul to start disciplining myself and write on a regular basis; I knew it was something that I needed to do.  Yet, can you believe I almost talked myself out of it? 

           If I had allowed myself to continue to doubt…then, I would not have had the pleasure of helping supply information to so many people about triple negative breast cancer and have had the impact on lives that had not heard about the disease.  There were people who contacted me on that subject who were going through scary times and needed support.  There were other readers who had experience with TNBC and were able to be a support to others, through my blog.  Then, a subject i hold near and dear to my heart which is fetal alcohol spectrum disorders has had an impact on lives because of the information in that post.  I consider it an honor to have the priviledge to  possibly steer someone away from picking up an alcoholic beverage while pregnant; and maybe, preventing someone’s child from having a lifetime of disabilities that could have been avoided.  That is the power of positive impact.

           That very first post was so very intimidating that I sat and worked on it for hours…hours I tell you!  🙂  Finally, i confessed that it was intimidating and just jumped in with both feet and did it.  Scary, yes…am I glad that I took the chance and have since been blessed by the experience…YES!

            Tonight, I did something else that I wasn’t sure I could do.  I got on a live tele-seminar and spoke with businessman Michael Penland.  He had more than 100 people on that call, listening to his guests speak.  You can hear a replay of that call here:  http://instantteleseminar.com/?eventid=3926631   The listeners on that call were hungry for information on how to build their businesses and their websites; so that their dreams can come true.  Sometimes, it just takes a little encouragement for people to believe in themselves.  

            Michael is a special person who goes out of his way to help others succeed in their own businesses.  He helped my husband get started in marketing over a year and a half ago.  He helped to build my husband’s confidence and opened new doors for him.  Now my husband is a respected marketer who has helped to encourage and mentor so very many others in ways that have changed their lives for the better.   It is like a chain reaction when people set out to make a positive impact on the lives of others.

            Michael has a live seminar coming up in Orlando, Florida on Sept 19th-21st.  Check him out and see what he can do for you!  http://www.instantcashmarketing.com/jeff.html   The speakers at this event are powerful and have the skill to teach you how to achieve your dreams in a way that will open your eyes to the talents and skills you already own inside of yourself.  You may recognize some of the marketers by name, there is Willie Crawford, Matt Bacak, Brad Fallon, Dr. Mike Woo Ming, Howie Schwartz, Joe Sugarman, Debra Thompson, Jason Pearson, Frank Garon, Keith Wellman, Jeff Wellman, Dale Calvert, Alan Bechtold, Drew Miles, and Jeff Herring and of course, Michael Penland.  

            The title of the seminar is Magic 17-Billion Dollar Marketing Dream Team.  You will learn things at this live event that you may never have another opportunity to experience.  Do yourself a favor and click on this link and see how you can get yourself going in the right direction.  Empower yourself to do what you have always wanted to do; you can do it if you only dare, to not be intimidated or doubt yourself; I know you can!  http://www.instantcashmarketing.com/jeff.html

      Well, today was the day…it was the first year anniversary of the starting of this blog.  What started out as a way to build confidence in myself and my writing skills turned into a real relationship with myself and the news around me.  It has been fun…it has been educational; and, it has been a way to document what goes on in the world around me; and, helps me understand how i interpet those issues. 

        So much has happened in the last year, that to remind myself, of the ups and downs…I  just go back and read random blog posts.   The postings remind me of current events that have happened, celebrity happenings, life changing events; and in general, all of the emotional ups and downs involved in daily living.  At times, i think…did i write that…do i still feel the same way about that subject…is there more current information than I had at the time i wrote the post?  Sometimes i update the posts with current information if it is important to the post.

      Today on Good Morning America, Maalak Compton-Rock was on speaking about triple negative breast cancer and the foundation that was begun by a group of women who were all affected by their friend who was afflicted with the disease.

       There is a lack of knowlege about this disease. It is a breast cancer that is resistant to the typical courses of treatment that is recommended for breast cancer.  It is important to create an awareness so that those affected by this type of cancer don’t waste critical amounts of time treating their cancer ineffectually, thereby decreasing their chances of survival.  Many have the disease but, are unaware; and, could be better informed so that treatment could be tailor made to improve their success. This is the first time that i have heard of triple negative breast cancer and even then, i wasn’t clear on what i heard. 

         In fact, i believe that Robin Roberts made a casual remark that this is the type of cancer that she is dealing with; but, she made the comment in such a casual way that i am not sure. 

          Robin is a woman that goes out of her way not to draw attention to herself; but, she has made concessions in some areas that are important to her, such as her battle against cancer and her work on the rebuilding on communities that were devastated by hurricane Katrina.  The allowances she has made are only in her quest to help draw attention to the issues at hand…not to herself.

          Malaak does many good and charitable works.  She is the beautiful wife of Chris Rock and together they are proactive in their charity fundraising and community work.  She is passionate about the work she does and is dedicated to giving back.  If you go to Malaak’s website at :  www.angelrockproject.com/ you will find many worthy non-profit organizations to help support.  They not only give money, but time and attention as well; it is an inspiration to us all to do the same.

          In regards to the triple negative breast cancer awareness…her website gives access to the website for the foundation that was created in honor of her friend Nancy Block-Zenna.  It was Nancy’s desire that a cure be found so that others did not suffer as she herself suffered from this disease.  From her mouth to God’s ears.  The foundation can be found at:  www.tnbcfoundation.org.  Thank you Good Morning America, Robin Roberts and Malaak Compton-Rock and all of those doing research and healing in these areas; God bless you and your work.         Update:  see this interesting possibly related information https://writeasrain.wordpress.com/2008/05/16/women-are-dying-for-size-of-level-d-when-it-comes-to-breasts/   Please note:  I have moved my blog to: http://www.writewhereyouareblog.com  Please addd me to your RSS feed.  Thanks!
