Good Morning Ladies and today we are introducing
a lovely lady who is radiant, inside and out..
Here is a snippet about Laura...
Q&A with Laura Roppé
1. What inspired you to begin writing Rocking the Pink?
When I sat down to write Rocking the Pink, I had just completed rigorous treatments for breast cancer. I wasn't sure if the treatments had worked or not, and I wasn't going to waste any time! I wanted to write a book that would do two things: 1) inspire anyone coming down the cancer path after me, to give them hope and strength and laughter and support; and 2) inspire anyone NOT afflicted with cancer to get moving—not to wait until a cancer diagnosis or other calamity to start living the life they know they should be living.
2. How did music in particular help you through this journey?
Music has been critical to my healing, my life, my self-expression, my evolution as a human being. During my treatments, I constantly wrote songs, and that helped me to feel like me. When I was writing a song, I could tap into a deeper part of me, a more honest part. When I wrote the book, lyrics to my songs naturally were included, because they form such a large part of my story. Also, my journey from practicing law into music is a huge plot-point in my book.
3. What do you hope women will take away from your story?
My greatest hope is that my book will inspire others to stop ignoring their inner voice to listen to it! And make a conscious decision to make and seize every opportunity in this life to find joy, love and fulfillment. And, I want them to feel just a little bit less alone, and part of something bigger than themselves. We are all in this sisterhood together.
Thank You Laura, YOU are all about HOPE.
We hope all women will me moved by your story!
