[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Star Gazing

You have to grab moments when they happen. I like to improvise and ad lib.
– Denzel Washington

They called me outside of the cabin, come lie here with us, I really was
hesitant at first it on was on the ground just in front of the ocean front We lied flat on our backs "Akosua look up" I looked up and the sky was covered with stars, it literally took my breath
away. The last time I saw so many stars was years ago in South Africa. I
exhaled and like magic a shooting star, everyone screamed with delight "Akosua did you ask the shooting star for guidance?" "No" "Oh man, you better be ready always for the shooting stars!" Who was expecting shooting stars in the middle of nowhere - which I have
realized that I was in the middle of "now-here"

I thought about being open and ready for what is presented in front of me
even when I am uncomfortable, in fact, especially when I am uncomfortable To be obedient to the messages from within and to show up with courage to
slay the resistance It is always worth it Peace
