The way in which we do this is becoming aware of our current choices, what choices feel good in our body and what do not. This takes a level of honesty and non-judgement that is non-negotiable within this process. Looking at our less than favourable habits, thoughts, and emotions will almost always bring up discomfort, and force us to take a look at where we’ve been hiding from or lying to ourselves, but let me tell you from personal experience
That moment of pause, without judgement, is a game changer.Lee Ann Rimes
Today I have and am grateful the opportunity to speak at an event called Wellness Wednesday's at the The Arts Cafe TT.
The owner's vision is to share empowering stories to women in particular on how to be well, on how to keep well. She believes that loving one's self plays a significant role in remaining well. I applaud her vision and also share in the view. The conditions of my speaking today is not perfect and I was tempted to say no - I have very few books left to sell for one however, My gut told me to do it and I am so happy that I did.
I am returning to San Fernando, the place where it all began
My home town
I am returning stronger
I am returning with less baggage to unpack
Just an overall happy, excited yet nervous feeling
But I am ready
perfect or not
How about you? Are you feeling ready to make any leaps, even it the conditions are not perfect?
