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

You cannot learn about yourself if you are always staying within the safe
confines and borders of the familiar

I got a late call to speak at an event today, this morning I was at our
National Library in Port of Spain, There was a book club event where all
the book clubs from all over the country gather at an annual event to
celebrate the year. They asked me to come and be the feature speaker at
this event! I couldn't refuse I thought wow, how humbling! The word is spreading!

I got there early and sat down, watched the scenes and took it all in!
People kept asking me what book club was I from, I said none! They looked

The book club from my hometown was well represented, when the hostess
finally arrived she introduced me and asked me what part of the country was
I from, when I said San Fernando, the hooping and the hollering broke me
into a huge grin! South South South, they kept shouting! I felt really good!

There is no substitute for action, none at all, we can talk all day
long,dream all night long, wish all evening long, day dream all morning
long but if there is no action forget it! If you wait for perfect conditions you will never move If you wait for perfect conditions you will never move If you wait for perfect conditions you will never move You got that?

Move! Catch that! Peace!!
