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

Give, unrestrained. Assume nothing Danielle La Porte

NiNa Graduation happened yesterday, I smiled so much my jaws are paining!

I played very little part in the planning of the graduation I showed up and
assumed nothing

NiNa is a program that I started at a point in my life where I thought it
was all over, I decided after reading something somewhere that in order to
forget about your own issues, get involved in doing something positive for
someone else, I also had this dream for a while but had no clue on how to
make it happen

The Universe said yes as soon as I did and the programme started in my old
high school as an after school programme and now in it's 5th year it has
grown from strength to strength

The participants this year were exceptional, every year they are quite
good, this year however, these young ladies were so so willing, open minded
and extremely ambitious. it showed up in their presentations and yesterday
at the graduation! We had a fabulous time I am grateful to them for
teaching me to show up open minded, willing, courageous and ambitios
