The Power of Positive Thoughts – Video Blog

I see this as my coming out video. Not that I was really hiding. But the idea of posting this video blog, terrified me. The vulnerability was palpable. Then I realized the only way for me to really share … is to expose myself. 

I had to film this seven minute speech to enter a contest through Hay House Publishing to hopefully—fingers crossed—win and have my book published by them. So, I figured, Why not share it with all of you.

In my training to be a wellness coach, I’ve discovered that courage and purpose are two strong values of mine. Posting this video serves both of these values. More than anything, I hope to inspire and empower others through my story. If the video strikes a chord with you, or if you know someone who’s ill or suffering through a dark space, please feel free to share it.  

The quality of the video is enhanced if you click on the You Tube Link and watch it directly on You Tube.

    My dear Laura,
    That was amazing…I already knew the story, but you told it so well…succinctly, and simply in a way that is very accessible and should inspire others. It inspired me. (You also look fabulous!!!).

    This should get your book published. Put me down for one of the first run.

    I’m so glad you’re in the lives of my darling children, and me too!

    Love, Lindy

    Way to go, Laura! It takes a lot of courage to put yourself out there like that – I’m proud of you!

    Pretty tough to sum up that entire journey in 5-7 mins, eh?
