The Road with Cove Queen Janine Sullivan

with Janine Sullivan

Every now and then while walking on the road of life we pause and wonder what is next. Sometimes the answer comes in round about ways while questions linger in the air as if waiting for some sort of realization to arrive before a resolution follows.  For more than thirty years I have worked in the field of health care.  Along the way I have spoken to people from all walks of life.  I learned that we all have more in common than we may think.  I believe many of us ask big questions of life and eagerly await practical answers.

The Road is an out of the box program that finds common ground and discovers the answers to life’s most interesting questions. Come on The Road with me, Cove Queen Janine Sullivan and together we will see what life has to offer.

Janine Celebrates: Reece Arnold: is a 23-year-old autistic man from Fairhaven, MA. He discovered a knack for playing the piano around the age of 15 and excelled even more with piano lessons.

Hosting, “The Road With Cove Queen Janine,” is a dream come true. It is also the end of false beliefs in myself and the beginning of authentic living.
I grew up in, and later married into a culture of fear based thinking. For as long as I can remember I felt like I was in a room and the fire alarm was sounding. Even though there was no evidence of trouble or concern I often felt tense and over cautious. This stifled my life.
As I matured I felt fear came into me like osmosis. That is to say, the fear never felt like mine to own but it was so close to me that it felt like mine.
Throughout my forties and fifties I reasoned out many of the false stories that swept my mind. I homed in n my personal truths. Truths that were unique to me and my individuality, completely apart from other people’s perspective began to come forth.
Simply taking that action and having the willingness to see my truth revealed what was before me all along.
An abundance of curiosities unfolded. Opportunities became visible. My life was blossoming.
Opportunity is always right there on the path. Awakening to who we are apart from what we’ve been told or experienced sets the shift in motion.
This moment holds both the key and the treasure.
Sift through the stories and falsehoods with gentle love and compassion for yourself. Soon you will clearly see your radiant self and your purpose in this life.
