[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Day 5 NOLA

I am the women of my dreams; each stage of growth, a woman unapologetically
herself has emerged. This becoming myself is a process. Ijeoma

Well what have we here? We arrive in time to get our seats for the day's
workshop and there was a buzz about, there were extra security, there were
loads and loads of people, I went to the front to get my seat, ushers
appeared and said I will not be able to sit there today. "Huh?" "You cannot sit here today Ma'am it's reserved" "Since when?" "Since Oprah is speaking today" Oprah? Are you sure? Yes Maam

Well no problem let me just get back one seat My cousins and I were like OMG he said Oprah! We started acting like pure
groupies, jumping and screaming like kids

The Empowerment Experience as it was called was pure joy, exactly what I
needed to hear To Lean into the dream To Let it go, surrender when you have done all the work and prayed To set your intentions from the onset To define your own terms To always be you, authenticity is the best thing ever Man, I sure did choose the right time to be there to get this message and I
want to now share it with you

Thank you Ms Oprah
