Happy Thanksgiving America!

Why do most americans only choose to be thankful on this one day?

Shouldn’t we be thankful everyday for all that we have?

I am thankful for living in America.

For my family, friends, God’s saving grace for without him I am nothing.

I am thankful for you my readers.  Without someone to read the words I put down, they would just be sitting on paper doing nothing.

I hope that if you are in the United States Of America you have a safe and happy day.

Damaging Self Talk 

There is power in the tounge! 

 Think about that statement for just a moment.  

Proverbs 15:1

 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

Now that the United States of America’s election is over I’ve heard and seen more anger and hatred that ever before.   What is the point of it all?Running ones mouth, speaking of hate and violence is not what America was founded upon.  

Martin Luther King Jr

was one of the most outspoken and influential people of his time .   Are we as a nation forgetting the most important message he shared with the world ?  

His speeches were not those of “go riot into the streets because you don’t like the outcome of a vote, go forth and beat each other up because you have different values and beliefs “


Oh I’m sure we have all heard or read his “I Have A Dream” speech.  In The 60’s he was ridiculed by his peers for things he said and made fun of.  It was the power of his words that began to change his life and the lives of those that followed him.

The I Have I Dream speech was his most famous; however there were other quotes which are fitting for today’s times.

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. Martin Luther King, Jr


These are just a few.

Damaging Words

You have power in your words. 

The words we speak bring love, hate, healing, irreparable damage, illnesses, unforgiveness, and forgiveness.

When was the last time you yourself made a positive statement about yourself ?   

Do you tell yourself these things everyday ?   

I am strong ! I am beautiful! 

I show love and receive love!

When we confess positive statements out of our mouth they come to pass.  We may not see them come to forwichen right away.  Years, months or days later we start to believe what we say.  We stand a little taller, push our chest out a little more and walk with confidence knowing we are speaking positive things into the universe, which will come back to us.

Affirmations

What I Learned From Toni Nelson 

Yesterday November 5, 2016 I had the pleasure and opportunity to be interviewed by Toni Nelson.   Build Authority Coach, Writer, Author, Speaker, Award winning Videographer/Photographer.  


After she approached me about being interviewed I had to say yes.  A chance to get one talking about my newly published book, Terror In The North Tower wasn’t going to be turned down.  

I expected Toni to offer insights as to marketing, improvements I could make with my marketing strategy and that she did plus more.

Topics Discussed 

The main reason for writing the book, marketing strategies, self published verses traditional publishing ,  challenges and staying focused.

Toni made me feel at ease.  It was as if  I was sitting in her kitchen having coffee and just chatting away.  Before I knew it thirty minutes has gone by and we were saying our thank you’s and good byes.

What I Will Remember

I will remember most the conversation that took place after the recording. Her insight on how to improve the website for my book  Author Alicia Osmera. 

Oh if you don’t know the book is called Terror In The North Tower.

 
Suggestions for holding book signings, speaking engagements, and sale, sale, SALE!

Using The Interview

I know what your thinking.  Where is the interview and can I hear it?  Soon it will be released in I Tunes and I will let all my readers know just as soon as I have a release date.

I have already started to implement some of the suggestions from Toni and I can’t wait to see how the rest will play out.

As always I welcome your comments.
