[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Day 2 Why Are You Here in NYC?- The Book Tour

Love rests in certainty ACIM

Only uncertainty can be defensive. And all uncertainty is doubt about
yourself.

So after a much longer journey than I anticipated I made it to JFK. I got
into the taxi, the driver was rather friendly, he asked me where I was from
and guess what else? yup “Why Are You Here?” I told him I was from Trinidad
and Tobago and was on a book tour, he laughed and said so not only rock
stars go on tours! He mentioned that he was from Azerbaijan and if I ever
heard about his country it's two hours away from Russia, I told him that I
was in Russia in 2014 so he got even more excited. He asked me if I was
confident about my work and my dreams and to make sure that my work is not
only to pay bills but to live because that's “bullshit” I started to answer
and he said to me that all uncertainty is self-doubt! Hmmm note to self –
pay attention anyone can share lessons on this journey. It starts now- straight to Brooklyn Library today to meet the people who
helped make this possible Give thanks – Claire, Neive, Phoebe To the Book Tour Peace
