I was invited to a wonderful event over the weekend in celebration of the great Betty White (RIP).
It would have been a celebration of her 100th birthday had she been spared just a little more time on earth. At the event I learned that Betty had been the first woman to produce a National TV show, the first woman to star in a sitcom, the first producer to hire a woman director AND the first woman to receive an Emmy nomination. How inspiring!
Then, as I sat on my porch anticipating the full moon on Monday on the holiday that commemorates the birthday of the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, my sixth sense began to heighten to alert me to the special, high vibes in the air again. So I tuned in.
The energy of both Betty White and Dr. King floated into my awareness. What came through is that they had both served their purpose and that I need to keep pursuing mine. Thank you, Mrs full moon! You always illuminate things for me! Now that my audiobook is complete, I DO HAVE A(NOTHER) DREAM! And yes it does involve the big screen.
As always, you will be the first to know more about that when the time is right. For now, I am just letting the first full moon of 2022 carry this inspired energy out into the Cosmic Consciousness where the blueprints for everything we desire reside!
Before I run off and immerse myself in dreaming-in a few other cool things with the help of some good quality cannabis & fresh air, I also wanted to update you on my audiobook. It will be available for purchase in February. I will keep you posted.
I hope you also find the inspiration to follow your dreams in 2022. If you get stuck, remember the words of the great Martin Luther King Jr when he said, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” That’s definitely my plan.
I have some great news to share with you. I’ve just signed off the cover for my book.
I’m so excited, I just had to share it with you.
I did it!!
As you can see, my story is a very personal one. The courage to tell it did not come easy. I had the usual fears that people do whenever they are dealing with opening up but I could not (and did not) let the fear get in the way. I pushed through it because in my heart I know one thing: I have a story that only I can tell – and it deserves to be heard!
The pretty me on the cover did not come easy either. I worked with a wonderful photographer, Karianne Munstedt, as well as hair and makeup people to turn out that way. What a treat.
It’s been a long journey and now that I am finally standing at the finish line…well, the joy is indescribable.
Thank you for listening and letting me share my joy with you. The next time you hear from me, I’ll be telling how you can get yourself a copy of my book.
Until then, I wish you the courage to share your story too. Trust me, the sense of accomplishment is pretty priceless.

**P.S. The cover was designed by the wonderful South African graphic artist, Chrissy Harvey. I highly recommend her!
So I may (or may not) have mentioned to you I have written a book. It is going to be published in just a couple of weeks. Sitting down to write my story was mixed-bag of slow, pleasure and pain. I wanted to tell the story as factually accurate as possible — so it was necessary to put in the sweaty emotional work.
My incredible editor and writing coach helped me so much! She encouraged me not to get caught up in fear, not to censor my feelings and definitely NOT to worry what other people think of me or my story. “It is YOUR story, Cara,” she would say in her voice notes. “If other people don’t like it, tough shit.”
That was transformative.
The dwarf planet, Chiron reminds me of the writing process. This planet is named after a centaur (a creature with the head, arms, and torso of a man and the body and legs of a horse) who in Greek mythology who had incredible healing powers. Sadly he could not heal himself from the wound of a poison arrow and died. Chiron represents deep sources of wounding and healing in our lives. It’s the soft-spot that feels vulnerable, unloved and hurt — a part that we cannot fix ourselves. I believe that writing can help us in this respect. *Dear Chiron, I hope you’re listening…for your next life, wink-wink*
So if you are thinking of writing your story I would suggest you just do it. Don’t wait for the right moment. Don’t worry about what others will think of you. Just go for it! And if you are looking for someone to help you with the process, contact Lee. Her website is www.leemayimele.com
