We Look Straight Into the Present

We look neither ahead nor backwards. We look straight into the present. And we give our trust to the experience we ask for now. ACIM

Today is the first of July, in this world order, the year is in its second part, second phase. I like to review where I am at the present moment. How I feel as I chart the way forward to end of the year. As I reflect upon it this moment I realised that my clarity in my intentions have brought me here. 

This morning I have the opportunity to deliver the motivational message at a company's 15th Anniversary Celebrations

Confessions on the Journey - I am nervous, it's a different type of company and they asked for a specific type of message. So it is totally out of my comfort zone of showing up and sharing some of my story. At the same time, I am excited because this is a manifestation of what happens when we get what we asked for with a clear intention and the proper support.

I locked myself away this weekend to prepare for this, and I am still nervous as hell! I know that to get the things that I asked for I have to develop the qualities required to roll it out.



Self Belief

Release of Ego and Release of Judgement

to name a few

And if this is what it takes to be the best me, I am all for it.

This morning I intend to look straight into the present moment, to be fully in the mix so that I can learn while having fun.

Send me some good vibes, I need it!


Check out the We Lead PowHerful Conference - I will be there
