Robert Thomas  OF  BASTET NOIR :



The lovely ,strong, confident and self reliant Jamaican Author Simone Myrie .


A common thread that holds every human together is that we all want to be loved. That feeling of belonging, that quest for a home is universal for all of us. Some find it in the face of their children, others find it in their lover’s eyes, but the ones who can truly say they’ve built one are those who find that home within themselves. .....Those who learn how to immerse within their pain, bathe in it, let themselves feel it and learn how to swim against its currents are the only ones who can stop the flood from coming in and wash away everything when others decide to walk away. A painful wound caused by such a perfect emotional storm can become an art form when you learn how to tame and overcome the excruciating moments. In those in between moments when art happens the pain you’ve been carrying transforms into the fuel that will lead you to conquer that mountain top. And it all starts when you learn that acceptance begins with you.


For Simone Myrie, a JAMAICAN author, it all started when she saw a big part of herself reflected ..At age 16, she begun writing and with every word she started to slowly build that home she was so desperately longing for. Today Simone Myrie powerful words of wisdom echo throughout our planet, encouraging others to walk fiercely, run fearlessly and live restlessly. Today she standing tall in the place where there once was a frightened little girl, you’ll find a beautiful, confident, extremely strong, powerful woman whose loud roar is no longer silenced by society, a woman whose comforting words are healing millions of people around the world. So read on to find more about this incredibly kind empath, as she shares her story for the latest edition of BREAKING BARRIERS


ROBERT THOMAS:I first heard about you when Goalcast published your motivational video on their site. You were talking about finding home within yourself. At the time I was going through exactly the same process of having built so many homes outside myself, some of which got burnt to the ground or were taken away from me, so your words really resonated with me, especially the part where you say: “I was looking at a person that no longer resembled me”, because at that exact moment I felt exactly the same thing. Your words helped me see things more clearly. They helped me realize that dedicating time to yourself is not selfish, as society taught me to believe, but necessary for growth. They especially helped me a lot in learning how to say no without feeling guilty about it. So if for me, you were the person that made me start thinking differently about myself, was there someone or something you read that influenced you and made you fall in love with writing?


SIMONE MYRIE: Thank you for saying that! Very moving.


ROBERT THOMAS: Do you remember the first thing you’ve written?


SIMONE MYRIE : I don’t remember exactly. I used to write when I lived in JAMAICA. I had a journal that my grandmother, , gifted me on my thirteenth birthday.



ROBERT THOMAS: You’re an author of 22 books, and the recently released one BREAKING BARRIERS. As you go through them, it’s beautiful to see your personal growth unravel and how you’ve matured.. I know this is a tough question, but do you maybe have a favorite CHAPTER you go back to over and over again in challenging times?


SIMONE MYRIE: It’s hard to choose one. I do have to say that “these mountains that you are carrying, you were only supposed to climb” from BREAKING BARRIERS and “I am so proud of the warrior I’ve created from the ashes that were meant to bury me” from "THE JOURNEY OF LIFE are ones that I have been coming back to recently. They make me feel like I can overcome absolutely anything.


RICHARD THOMAS: Curious to know what does your writing process look like? Do you have a routine you follow? SIMONE MYRIE: I don’t have any routines or rules. I just write when words come to me. Anytime. Anywhere. I don’t believe that there should be a specific process or set of rules.


RICHARD THOMAS: What would you say were the crucial milestones that led to your success?


SIMONE MYRIE: I believe that every time my words reach someone and inspire them to rise from their pain by feeling it, that’s a milestone.


ROBERT THOMAS: As someone who has become hugely successful what advice would you give to all the future author out there?


SIMONE MYRIE: Just write. Don’t follow rules. Don’t think what people will say or think or do. Just write what’s in your soul. Be yourself. Don’t aim to be like anyone else.


ROBERT THOMAS: Do you think it possible for one person to actually make an impact and change the world?


SIMONE MYRIE: Yes. If you can change your own life, then you’ve contributed to changing the world. Let alone changing someone else’s life.


ROBERT THOMAS: Favorite female empowerment speech

SIMONE MYIRE: Too many. This is one of them: If there’s one thing to take away from Simone Myrie’s story it would be to find your own voice and demand the world to hear it. Roar, scream, do what you have to, to make people listen and once you do make them hear you, tell your story, inspire others, motivate them, elevate them and never be ashamed of what you’ve been through. Scars, regardless of how big or small eventually heal and yours will too, if you give them the time of the day.
