DEEP BEAUTY International Blog Tour 2019

Today I have the great pleasure of being the host here in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on Day 3 of the Virtual Blog Tour of author Carolyn A. Brent, whose book, “Transforming Your Life through Self-Care: A Guide to Tapping into Your Deep Beauty and Inner Worth” is celebrating its big Worldwide book launch on May 8, 2019.

CAROLYN A. BRENT is an award-winning bestselling author and a National Physique Committee (NPC) Masters Women’s Figure Champion at age 60. She is an expert on both self-care and caregiving; she is the founder of Across All Ages and two nonprofit organizations, CareGiverStory Inc. and Grandpa’s Dream.  Carolyn’s written works is in the Library of Congress the libraries of Harvard, Stanford, Johns Hopkins, and numerous other medical centers and universities.

Yesterday, Carolyn visited Ben Salmi family in London, England where 3 youngsters and their grandma interviewed Carolyn on the subject of Living Your Divine Purpose, Rejoice in Your life, Purpose in Your Soul and The Health and Money Connection.

Today, I’d like to share with you a recent interview I had with Carolyn when I got to ask her on the subject of Words, Home and the “ME” in Self-Care. I hope you enjoy it.


Andrew Mondia: Why do the words we speak– play such an important role in the transformation process?

Carolyn A. Brent: I have spent a long time thinking about the right title for this book, because words are important. They can inspire or deflate. Ignite or extinguish. Drive you to action or move you to despair.

The words others use against us have power. But the words we use against ourselves are infinitely more powerful: “I am not worth it.” “I can’t.” “I give up.” We have all used those words against ourselves at some point in our life, and the results can be devastating.

On the flip side, words of joy and confidence help us achieve our dreams: “I am beautiful inside and out.” “I love myself.” “I am so worth it.”

How do I know this? I know because of my own journey and talking to literally thousands of people who are searching for the answers and actions to age with grace, health, and wisdom.

Andrew Mondia: Why is it important to put the “me” in self-care?

Carolyn A. Brent: Self-care is simply caring for yourself no matter what the cost. It is about putting yourself first. I’m not talking about being selfish. What I am talking about is understanding that you cannot care for others unless you care for yourself. It’s just like love. You cannot love someone else truly unless you love yourself.

Self-care is loving yourself. It is saying that you are important and then following through with consistent action.

Andrew Mondia: What importance does our home play in our transformation?

Carolyn A. Brent: Great question! First, I’d like to remind everyone about the importance of structure, which is the foundation before the transformation begins.  Transformation requires structure and control that makes you repeatedly do what needs to be done to achieve your goals—no matter if they are a personal, professional, and, or living space.

Think about how does your dwelling place make you feel? Do you feel peaceful and relaxed?  Do you feel proud or embarrassed about your home when you have an unexpected guest? Is your space full of clutter, where you can’t think straight?

Think about it–can you remember the last time you experienced a thought-provoking aha moment?

You know, that particular moment that suddenly gives you a clear vision or specific understanding that can change in an instant everything you’ve been thinking about.


I hope you enjoyed this interview with Carolyn A. Brent and that you’ll check out her book on May 8, 2019:

A typical market in Beijing near the Forbidden City!

Where has the time gone by.  It was only yesterday and the year began  Now we are nearing the end of the year.  Lots of changes happening and my time in Beijing has been great.  People are interesting and how things are done here.  But I am slowly planing a return to the western world with a notch under my belt for the Chinese experience.

Like anything it can take time to get things done right.  I have been real slow in working on my own show but making progress and making way to live in LA.   Working on being able to live and work in the US is moving along.

As a way to thank people for signing up to my monthly E-notes and offer a free gift.   Subscribe to my Monthly E-note to enjoy it!

A New Age and in A New City!!

Wow summer rolls by like anything.  Lots of changes in my personal life here in China and all for the better.  I left Lanxi where I was and moved up to Beijing of all places.   Pollution isn’t as bad as one might think.  There still is a high level but not that high like in previous two years from what local sources tell me.  I just love the energy and great place to turn 40 and surround myself in the Blue Moon energy that happened few days after.

On the acting front.. Just getting a few more documents ready for my O1 Visa and than it’s off to the US government to approve.  I am considering while being here in Beijing maybe putting on my revised version of my one man show once I finish writing it.  Give the Chinese the wonderful Andrew Mondia!

Now onto something you might might enjoy.   Last October I had the pleasure to meet and hear Mary Morrissey. I never knew who she was till then just she was like a pioneer in this law of attraction.  She was an inspiring speaker and loved her.   Few months back got on her morning mentor and been receiving it every since.  Try it out for free!

Happy 1st Anniversary to K.I.S.S. E-Note!

I just returned from visiting Beijing, Forbidden Palace  and the Great Wall.   Had a blast being up there and lots of inspiration.  Meet some great people too.  Cannot wait to go back again if chance arises.

My own one man show is coming along nicely with some great changes and additions thanks to the help of the lovely Brenda Adelman.  And my application is almost complete for sending off to the US government for O1 Visa approval too!

Take time to do something nice for someone else.  Even a small thing can go a long way!

Warmest Love & Light!!!

DisneyLand Hong Kong Train

Disneyland Hong Kong has an actual train just for their amusement park. .

So I was having so much fun the first weekend of May when I went away to Hong Kong that I didn’t even get back till the day after the first Monday.  Then the following week went to Shanghai for a few days.  Checked a few things of my list having visited both great places.   Enjoyed my time at Disneyland Hong Kong (one more park to visit before I can say I went to all the Disney Parks in the World),  went up the Pearl Tower and saw around a bit what both cities have to offer.

With regards to my acting news.. LA is fast approaching and the my application is official under way and by October/November I should be there.  My one man show is slowly moving forward again and looking forward to what awaits once in LA.

Take courage and face the fear that you is holding you back to achieving what it is you desire.  FEAR is only False Evidence Appearing Real as someone once mentioned to me.  More recently I came across where the word can either stand for .”Forget Everything and Run” or “Face Everything and Rise.”  Which do you choose?

Warmest Love & Light!!!
