For as long as I can remember I have never had an issue speaking in front of people. I can stand on a stage in front of 500 people easily and speak.

How many of you reading this are thinking, “I hate speaking in front of people!” ? Did you know that the number one fear in North America is the fear of public speaking? And that the root fear of that is really public humiliation and ridicule?

Here's what I've learned over the last couple of months; when I stand in front of people and I am genuine, having fun and as is'ing EVERYTHING it is easy. Although I suppose that being able to as is everything also means that I am able to laugh at myself.

This weekend I am on stage at The Millionaire Mind Intensive in East Rutherford New Jersey as the Assistant Trainer, which is not the position that I was meant to be fulfilling here. Yet somehow the universe decided that it was time to see if I could step up once again.

Here's the one thing that I have noticed this time around. Here in NJ they enjoy dancing; which means they are my kind of people and I am having a BLAST with them!!! I am really looking forward to spending the rest of the weekend with these amazing people. It's going to be a really fun weekend!!!

In our journeys around New York City so far we wandered down to the financial district. Irma really wanted to be a witness to Occupy Wall St. (which by the way is not on Wall St.- it's in Liberty Square which is about a block away from Wall St.)

We got to the financial district and began walking towards Wall St. looking for them. About 10 seconds later though we found tent city in Liberty Square.

I have not been following ANY of this! I do not watching the news or really pay any attention to any of it. Irma on the other hand works in the financial sector and therefore is fascinated with the history that is being made through these protests.

Liberty Square was certainly a sight to see and now I can say that I witnessed it; a piece of history apparently. I am slowly beginning to understand what they stand for, because Irma has been explaining it to me. I understand that the American economy has major issues and that somehow the rich keep getting richer while the middle and lower classes are falling farther behind.

Legislation is put in place for a reason and if you cannot bother to understand the reason you should not be changing it! Until you have a firm grasp on the WHY it was written up in the first place you have no right to be messing with it. Which from my understanding is why they are in this mess in the first place.

And even if it's not illegal to do what they did it's certainly was not morally correct. I just cannot help but feel like there must be another way to do this. Here in New York the site is peaceful, a little noisy with the drums but peaceful. Whereas in Oakland, CA it has not been as peaceful and it has caused closers to shops which means that people aren't able to keep working which now just compounds the problem!!!

I believe in my heart of hearts that this will all work out for the greatest good in the end; I am just curious as to when that end will show up.

I realize that I have not posted anything for a few months now; which I now think of as odd. However during that time period I obviously did not feel the need to post. Today something told me it was time to begin blogging again.

I am currently in NYC staying in Midtown with a friend of mine mine Peaks who got a time share week here from a friend of hers. I have been to New York City four times now (the first time was so short and I was young- I don't normally count it) and there was one time that we came in just to see a show.

I got in Saturday evening and Irma and I decided to go walk around. We wandered down to Times Square- which I have decided is WAY to packed and chaotically stimulating- with all the lights and noise for me. The ONLY reason I go back there is to stand in line at the TKTS booth for awesome discount Broadway show tickets!

Sunday afternoon we went to see Mary Poppins, which was delightful to say the least. I left the theater feeling like 'anything can happen when I let it' and that life is full of possibilities when you believe and have a strong support system.

As I sit here in my room there are sirens BLARING, very loudly in the direction of whatever they are rushing to save. The city is full of lights and sounds that echo off of all the buildings and make me realize just how many people actually live in this city, on this island.

Being on the Empire State building tonight; looking out at the billions of lights that cover the city from ground to sky and as far as the eye can see, made me feel so small. No matter what way you turned there were lights and cars and people walking and sounds from every direction. I still cannot even register the magnitude that is this island; this concert juggle. There are no stars here... well I mean they exist we simply cannot see any of them. We can see planes though, and we can certainly see lights!

What's my point you may be wondering... to be completely honest I was kinda beginning to wonder the same thing and to be frank with you; I am not so super that I have one. Did you have a realization while you were reading this blog that you would like to share? Perhaps you found a point!

Enjoy looking for one if you didn't the first time through.
