[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Why are you here?

Owning our story and loving ourselves to that process is the bravest thing
that we will ever do Brene Brown

The book is launched yayy!! Every single thing the Universe uses, every

I am happy and grateful, there are people who I can depend on for anything
- friends! I can call on the Divine Creator at any time and that is HUGE!
Demonstrated again by yesterday!

This is what I want to share with you, some excerpts from my talk yesterday:

Each and everyone of us born here in this world have a reason to be here,
we are all born with the ability to create. We have a reason to be here and
it aint just work. None of us are random!

Why are you here?

There is a song to be written

A song to be song

A poem to be written and spoken

A cake to be made

A bake to be made

Why are you here?

To teach the children

To guide the children

To love the children

To care for the seniors

To write the book

To play the music

To write the music

To dance

To drum

To make people laugh

To play the pan

Why are you here?

To do the things that bring you joy, that light you afire, to create the
very thing you were born to do.

Anything other than that is sufferation

That jewelry you like to make

The painting you sit with for hours

The race you like to run

The tennis you like to play

The thing that you will do for free, that thing, that is why

Why are you here?

To create

To live a life that contributes to the joy that is inside of you

Your joy

Because when you do what brings you joy, you serve the world. You
contribute to the creation of the world's joy, you contribute to the light

Your gifts are the gateway to your greatness

And all of us matter, We live from a place of littleness. Do not be content
with littleness

Do the thing! Do it now!

Why are you here?
