What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love Rooted yet Flexible

Love shows up in so many ways - Madonna Badger

When you open yourself up to possibilities magic happens, when there is
flexibility in your approach, magic happens, when you can see another way
of making it work, fireworks go off!

I used to get stuck, starting with reasons why something may not work out
as I wanted it to Of course I did, there are so many ways that things can
go haywire right? And that, my friends made me so stressed! Like grinding
my teeth stressed! I was forced into flexibility and oh how magical it is!
We don't know everything, yip, I said it, we don't! And that is why there
are internal guides, our intuition, the little things that happen along the
way that points us in a direction that most times makes absolutely no
sense! But they all lead to "that place" When I decided to move to Manchester, it was illogical to me but I felt it
was something that I absolutely had to do, I had no clue what I was in for
and that was just the door being opened for me to become an author. As one
of my favorite teachers Deborah Johnson says "every divine idea has its own
supply, it's own way of coming into fruition, trust that" You will not get an idea and not get the tools, your job is to pay
attention, listen and take what seems like risks as it goes against what
most people are doing, trust me they aren't risks!
