[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Are you doing it?

When I have a difficult decision to make, I imagine myself as a 90-year-old
guy looking back on his life. I imagine what I'll think about myself at
that point in time, and it always makes it really easy to go for it. You're
only going to regret that you wimped out." - Nick Woodman, CEO of GoPro I live in awe of God's grace and how the Universe works! I know for sure
that I live by God's grace every single day. And I am provided with
evidence of this every single time. Okay, so one of my dreams was to speak
at an International Women's Day Event and I never even told anyone that
(Guess I didn't need to because once you tell the Universe that is a big
step!) So imagine my reaction when I get a phone call to speak at one this
week?! OMG OMG are you serious? Of course, sure sure what time? I will be
there! Like a kid in the candy store let loose!

Whatever your dream is, work it, believe it and get ready! Because it might
be today. I must admit after I hung up I was scared. I sure was! But I know
it is something that I wanted to do so I'm going to live with the fear and
do it anyways.

Today is my day! I'm on my way in an hour, wish me luck!

What do you need to get ready for? Are you doing it? Are you willing to
take the setbacks with the comebacks?

Wish me luck! Peace!
