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

"You can't outwit fate by trying to stand on the sidelines and place little
side bets about the outcome of life. Either you wade in and risk everything
to play the game, or you don't play at all. And if you don't play, you
can't win." --Judith McNaught

I was asked to do a talk at a school on Thursday, I was really looking
forward to it! Woke up on Thursday and I was feeling pretty ill! I can't
remember the last time I was ill! I thought ok maybe it was something I
ate! I will still drive down and do my thing! By the time I got there I
swore I had fever, sore throat the works! I did the talk and it was so much
fun! It actually made me feel better for that time but as I was done and
sat down I started feeling ruff again so I made my apologies and left drove
straight home and went to my bed, later that night a friend of mine, Erica,
an angel on earth! Passed by with a box of organic produce and in there was
coconut water and citrus! perfect!!! (told you she was an angel!) Anyways
we agreed to meet on Friday for lunch, I told her no matter how I felt I
was going to come! I am so glad I went,great to have lunch with her and
after lunch we met another friend and headed to the San Fernando Hill Park
to watch a movie outside. lovely venue and lovely lime! I went home and
straight to bed but that outing made me feel so connected despite my
feeling ill!! Do something spontaneous today!

Love ma peeps! Love the Life and the Universe's shenanigans!
