[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Day 10 - Why Are You Here in NYC - The Book Tour

Everyone has dreams. There's not a single human on this earth who doesn't
wish for something. There's not a single child who doesn't have a wild wish
for the future. And there's not a woman reading this who doesn't hold some
kind of dream close to her heart. Every single one of us has a wonderful
contribution to make in this lifetime. We all have a calling. Maxie Mc Coy

The tour has come to an end, I'm preparing to head back to base. It's been
an awesome ten days, I will always remember them.

My top five lessons were

  1. My comfort zone is where I rest, not where I live - be prepared to jump
    out of the zone ever so often, see what is there and know it will be okay
    in the end

  2. I can't do this alone - and I will not ever want to - the support was
    tremendous especially when I let it flow

  3. Flexibility is essential - my way is not the only way or the best way -
    and leave room for surprises - in other words, don't be a control freak

  4. Believe in myself - just believe - or who's gonna?

  5. Do your best in the moment

To the Book Tour.....

Peace
