The who, what, when and why of my book

For years prior to writing this book, my hubs David, clients and friends urged me to share the who, what, when and why of where I was and where I am today.

Oddly it was a quote that framed things in a way that made sense to share my healing and spiritual path from the "there to my healthy, happy here. The essence of the quote was, "those who have walked through the fires and became a Phoenix have a moral responsibility to give the lessons back to give other their transformational wings."

The girl in the shadows on the book jacket was me back "there.| " I wrote this book as a testimony of hope and chronicale how my scars were turned into Lodestars that guide my and others I share our Change Making ideas with today. My book is an offering and affirmation that it is not what happens to us that defines who and what we become. Instead, it is how we respond and choose to do about it.

Bright blessings on your own journey,

Coralie "Raia" Darsey-Malloy

Alicia Keys - Brand New Me

The message and performance of Brand New Me by Alicia Keyes echoes the many transformations I experienced during the  I've  "there" the brand new me of I live today Each setback, upset, pain, sense of hopeless, helpless self-doubt eventually led me to the awareness that the toughest lessons and changes are usually the ones that provide the greatest insights and life lessons to growth.

Now every daunting challenge is viewed through this lens on life. I have the confidence to know that I am on the brink of a deeper level of a "brand new me" that will emerge after whatever ending, middle and then beginning outworks. It always is and does.

In group sessions, public speaking or writing this ending, middle before the fresh beginning is the same metamorphosis for all of u.  It and when we get ourselves out of the way, conceive and believe we can and do achieve the feeling of the old falling away and there is a newness of the emergence that follows.

Yes, it feels risky, a little scary to move beyond familiar comfort zones. The courage it takes is worth it. This I know for SURE. My testimony of hope presents the many ages and stages of letting the old go so our  Brand New Me evolves.
