[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Being all in

Being all in is you committing to your decisions whether or not they work
out the way you planned. Dawn Moxie

Big picture thinking is one thing I am happy to have learnt. This comes
from knowing what you want, having a clear vision. When you have the big
picture, the clear vision. you are committed to making decisions and taking
massive action to get there - it's almost like this - the how comes along
as you go along. Getting to the corner, I can take a car, bus, walk, run, crawl - my big
picture is getting to the corner. We get bogged down in the how. We look at
what is in front of us and what has happened with other people - we want
evidence, we want validation from friends, family and loved ones, we want a
pat on the back, we want status quo, we want to be talked about positively-
good luck with that homies!

All of the amazing and awesome things that happened, that have been
invented, that we use is through someone trusting and moving forward not
knowing how I let the how blow my mind because it always does, its quite exciting
really - tuning out the naysayers is harder I wanted to share my story I didn't know how I wanted to travel I didn't know how

But it happened It wasn't always easy what kept me going in the vision, the commitment the
discipline and knowing that the how is not up to me all roads lead to God All and all things are lessons that God would have us learn
