I swear, I have been through these lessons before… but, I got an opportunity to re-learn them again this past weekend. The Universe always delivers me what I need most. SOMEONE must believe that I learn best when I feel terrified and vulnerable. It matters to share my story. I guess how I ended up at the conference would be the best way to start… About a year ago I met an amazing woman called Deb Leroux while eating a hotdog during a break at Startup Weekend Kelowna. To be honest, I was quite zoned out most of that startup weekend…
This past week has been CRAZY with work. But a good kind of crazy because it’s the kind of work I am so excited to work on that I have to pinch myself. I was already having a pretty AWESOME week when I received a letter that was just another huge “nod” from the Universe saying, “Hello?” (Imagine a voice like a parrot! Hellooo! One of my superpowers is “parrot talk” you know!) If you read between the lines the Universe was telling me to
As you probably know, I have BIG CREATIVE DREAMS! This stems from a little seed inside of me that knows (even when the rest of the world may not see it) that I am meant to be creative and live abundantly when doing so! Now, I know there are no accidents… Sometimes things work magically and there is no doubt I am “on the path”.
LOVE LOVE LOVE Mondo Beyondo. I know… I keep on raving about it. The course is made up of audios, art and exercises. Today I listened to an audio from Shauna Ahern – The Gulten Free Girl. Loved the energy, the story, and well, her name alone is pretty friggen awesome LOL.
I went to bed last night reading all about the last Oprah Show. I was completely moved… as I always am by her… and her simple but transformational words. Even if you watched her last show, there is something different about reading it and feeling the words. Click here to read it off her site. So many light bulbs, seeds, ahas and take-aways fluttered through my head… but the one thing that just screamed from inside was that I needed to dream bigger. It isn’t about obtaining MORE but about living a BIGGER VERSION of who I am… a richness…
Thanks to Andrea and Jen of Mondo Beyondo for reminding me about the power of words and affirmations. I was upset that I actually didn’t have any of my Upstones affirmations left when I read the affirmations they had us cut out for one of our lessons. Then while cleaning this weekend, like magic, I found a small bag of them.
So late last night I pressed “publish” on a blog post that made me stand two feet in vulnerability. In it, I claimed I wanted to do more of what I am passionate about… being an artist (doing my turquoise art) & building an online creative community. A part of my mondo beyondo journey. Then this morning I was once again gut wretched with butterflies and nerves as I sat in front of my facebook profile wondering if I “really” needed to press the “share” button to post that article.
So today started off as one of those… not so good days. I sat last night with a friend wondering if at 37 I should be focusing more on my family and “making money” vs. living my dream. I am constantly presented with amazing opportunities to make great money doing stuff I don’t love. And then also presented with the inner inspired side of myself wondering if this is the year I am going to step FULLY back on the path of my true journey… and take the risk even without knowing the ending.
A few weeks back I told you about discovering Jen Lemen via one of my floating trips on the internet. Shortly after that, I discovered she was doing a course and didn’t want to miss the opportunity to be able to work with her on her latest program Mondo Beyondo – An online course all about dreaming big! Yesterday was the first day… and right off the bat I was inspired!!!
