[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Returning Stronger Day 3

You gotta take some risks. You have to not only pick up the dice, but
roll 'em. So go ahead, take the gamble.You have nothing to lose except the
chance to win. Neale Donald Walsh

Late night at the office, these ladies are doing amazing work,I am so proud
to be a part of it, I am inspired. My jet lag was real, they saw me
crashing, one more meeting and I will go home to rest. Just as I was trying
to finish a document, my laptop computer screen turned pink with some crazy
lines at them bottom - oh no! this is not happening - this laptop must
work, I have work to do and extra money to buy a laptop - nowhere in sight!
just as I started You Tubing a solution I saw an email from the bank
declining me for a loan that I applied for - this was my third attempt at
making a loan request. I stopped, closed the computer and just took a breath

Okay, I know something is being told to me here, I don't know what, tell me
what it is Universe.

I went back to the place that I was staying, pulled out my journal and
started writing in it, things must change, and it has to start with me -
that was the answer. be open to the change

Today I got up did a short run before breakfast and got ready to head to
another venue. I go to another part of Nairobi to where I am staying to
assist the ladies in preparing for the Conference I will be spending the
night there

Looking forward to it
