I thought my life would slow down a bit when the kids were out and somewhat grown-up but . . . no! It seems that when you set yourself on your dream path – life picks up and takes off.

Be ready.

I’ve had an incredible week while dreaming.

I practiced a new rap single, made arrangements to go into the studio, wrote a treatment for the movie Club B with my screen writing counterpart Toni,  and took an awesome Crane Canyon Road ride (a winding Sonoma County country road) with my husband.

Even though we’re not really talking.

Marriage is so weird and I’m going to go into that more another time.

I am a fan of RuPaul Drag Race. I love that show.  I said it. I love reality TV. In fact, I did a reality show myself once. That’s another story.

Here’s some of Rupaul’s advice to help you with your dreams –

  1. Remember to love yourself, because if you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna’ love somebody else?
  2. If you say you’re gonna’ do something, then by-George, you better do it.
  3. Being true to your word is important because you don’t want to lose trust in yourself.
  4. Look at me – a big old black man under all of this makeup, and if I can look beautiful, so can you!
  5. Life is more meaningful when you are not afraid to see all colors of the rainbow

Keep on dreamin and remember to be yourself, everyone else is already taken!

Laurie has several dreams going on at once.  She left 8 Women Dream in November of 2010 to focus on Club B and her NIA business.

    Sista B,

    I just watched your video and I’m still cracking up – in a good way – because it’s so DAMN GOOD! I had no idea!
    And – hello! – 40 dracmas for access to YOUR brain? Such a deal! Can’t wait for your tips to men on the downtown state of mind. Just don’t warn my mister. I like to surprise him.

  • 4-point system… can’t wait to find out more! Oh… and my dancin’ ass is still sore. Thanks for the workout and I’ll be back for more. – H

  • T-bone

    We are some busy Bitches, aren’t we? Nice blog sista! Glad I finally got to see the video. (I’m feelin ya, but super good for a first time through)
    Much love,

  • Laurie Allen

    Remy, you’re funny! Yea, the 4 point system is interesting to say the least! Perhaps you can use the guidelines.
    Hang in

  • Remy, the photographer

    I’m quite intrigued with the 4 point system – cause being a consultant, I’m always helping my clients look for ways to get replicatable results – this would certainly be a new one!
    Thanks for being so real! Monday’s are great with you in them. Rem

  • Catherine, Site Admin

    Girl, you sure know how to set the week up with a bang!

  • Wow, what a week! Love the RuPaul inspiration. And the geography lessons ;) Ha!

    Keep moving on those dreams – you are inspiring me!!! (gotta sit my butt down for more work on the book today and of course write tomorrow’s kick-ass blog post :)
