We are now entering the final lead-up to Mountain Gypsies' Gathering 2018, and I'm so excited! 

I can't wait to be back in the mountains of Tennessee, enjoying the quiet and beautiful surroundings of the Roan Mountain State Park. Come join us in Roan Mountain, TN this coming weekend—June 29th through July 1st—for a unique event featuring speakers, workshops, and so much more!

I will be a speaker at the event, and below is the ad our host Cat Young made for my appearance. I love what she did with it!

Why don't I introduce myself the way I've introduced other speakers?

I have a background in using my voice from the time I was a child. I've been a singer, voice actor, radio show co-host, and trainer, and in one of my former jobs, I trained machine learning algorithms to understand language.

And yet, I'm not sure I ever realized until recently just how much the voice is an effective tool for healing, provided we develop and employ certain skills and habits. Therefore, the title of my talk is Finding My Voice, but really I hope to inspire you to find yours, too.

While at the Gathering, I'll have a table representing positively b.e.e. My table will feature unique, inspirational jewelry and other handmade items, including a bracelet I designed especially for this event (pictured above) and pieces inspired by my spiritual journey.

This is your last chance to get tickets, so get them now if you've been considering it at all! I believe cabins in the state park are sold out unless there are cancellations, but there is also the Roan Mountain B&B and potentially other B&Bs, or else hotels in nearby towns. Check out the Gathering's page for more information, and feel free to reach out to Cat Young through the page if you have any questions about the event or where to stay.

I'm not sure what type of connectivity I'll have from there, but if I can get enough signal, I hope to do some updates from the event on positively b.e.e.'s Facebook page so you can see what's going on if you can't attend, yourself. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled!

And just a reminder: there will not be a Fortune Cookie Friday this week due to the Gathering.

See you June 29th-July 1st! 💛🐝

Fortune Cookie Friday: The Means of Happiness

Ok, so, as I mentioned in this post here, Fortune Cookie Friday will be an occasional feature here at positively b.e.e. I get a lot of these every time I order Chinese food or go out, plus I sometimes buy a package of them (you can get a big box here), because I like them a lot.

I find the sayings inside often start a train of thought, for me, so I may as well share those trains here and see what you have to say about it, and I invite you to share your fortune cookie fortunes with me as well!

So without further adieu, the first fortune cookie fortune on this site:

"We cannot be happy unless we think we are the means of good to others."
What do you guys think of that?

My first, knee-jerk reaction to this was: "Nah."

But that was my brain trying to get in the way of my heart. When I tell my brain to pipe down, I get so much more out of thi…

Fortune Cookie Friday: Bide Your Time

Hello fortune lovers! I hope you have had a most excellent week!

Here is today's fortune:

Bide your time, for success is near.
This one has me scratching my head a tiny bit. Is it saying to just cool my heels and wait for success to show up? I mean, to bide your time means to wait, but I've never been good at that. :) Let's explore this concept a little more.

Imagine the following scenario:

You really want to launch a new business. You develop a product, and then put it up on the internet to sell it. Do you then sit back and wait to see if it'll sell?

You're going to market it, right? You're going to place ads, tell everyone you know, maybe hold an open house or pass out flyers or business cards.

That said, there is value in patiently following the steps you need in order to be successful, and not shortcutting on any of the stages or materials.

Fortune Cookie Friday: The Roving Bee

Hello, and happy Friday! I hope you've all had a great week. It is Fortune Cookie Friday, so let's see what today holds:
It's the roving bee 🐝 that gathers honey. 🍯
First of all, I'd like to start with a side note: I love how my house is a virtual scavenger hunt when it comes to fortunes. It's fun for me when I find them. I have these things tucked away in all kinds of tiny little places, and it never ceases to amaze me when I come upon one that seems to speak exactly to what I'm thinking at the time. This one was tucked away in a drawer, with a rusty old paperclip on it. I have no idea what it used to be clipped to, by the way, but I took the clip off to take the photo, and it left those imprints on the paper. I don't even know how long I've had this one, but it has probably traveled with me through several moves over sever…
