Don’t be pushed by your problems in life, but led by your dreams.
Have you ever thought how powerful words are and how much energy they carry in our everyday conversations?
Five words I am trying to eliminate are:
SHOULD – This is a simple word to avoid. When used it makes you slow on moving forward and instead like a fear is pushing you.
BUT – It seems like everything leading to this point is simply not true. Be honest with yourself.
MAYBE – This word lacks clarity and a fear of commitment.
DON’T – Just saying “I don’t know” is an easy way to avoid making the tough decisions that lead in the direction of your dreams.
CAN’T – I challenged myself to all of the things that people told me “I can’t do for one reason or another.” Then I realized I could and I usually did.
Why not use words in your daily conversations that push your dreams forward instead of showing up your fears?

Mary Ann grew up in Brownwood, a small central Texas town. Her early love of the violin, which developed at the age of ten, and subsequent mastery of the instrument opened many opportunities for her. She was mentored and prepared for her musical journey from the director of the Abilene Philharmonic Orchestra. She auditioned and was selected to join the Blue Jeans Symphony Orchestra. The orchestra was underwritten by Levi Straus Blue Jean Manufacturer and the City of Estes Park, Colorado. Two musical students from each state were selected and concerts were given each Sunday afternoon in a natural amphitheater in the Rocky Mountains. Mary Ann remains an alumnus of this group which is an active symphony now making their home in Breckenridge, Colorado. Mary Ann also played in the Las Vegas, Wichita Falls and Austin Symphony Orchestras.
She had a busy career beginning at the Governor’s Office in Colorado. Then fourteen years at a Texas Trade Association. She was Manager of a Computer Magazine Publishing Company. The last few years of working were spent in sales, which led to her home office, as her husband’s health declined.
Since her husband’s death, Mary Ann has written several books, including a Book of Poetry, Children’s Short Stories, Reflections, The Pioneers and her just published book, Journey of My Heart, A Memoir.
During the last quarter of 2012 Mary Ann was engaged with speaking engagements and book signings in several states, as well as radio interviews from New York City, Dallas, Denver, Portland and Seattle, Washington.
