I experienced something amazing last weekend, a moment so alive and filled with love that I have to share it with you. You may even find yourself in need of a kleenex.
This past weekend I spent three days in Atlanta with 18 people who are as committed to my life as I am.
We got to be in a room with 700 more people who were up to the same.
It was here that I had a ginormous breakthrough in confidence.
In 2009 I believed in a possibility and put everything I had into it (first lesson-don’t put all those eggs in one basket.)
I need you to get something here-I believed in this possibility wholeheartedly.
I dared so greatly and risked my marriage, well-being, reputation and team.
Ten months later I learned that who I had taken a leap of faith with was someone with 7 aliases, no home at the address given and warrants out for her arrest in every county of the state she resided.
It was a betrayal like I had never experienced. I said goodbye to $30,000 that I had invested while believing in myself.
I gave everything I had because I believed in myself-get that?
What I faced this weekend was the ability to chose between my old way of being and something new.
The fear? It was in my face, making me sweat, pissing me off and trying like H-E-Double Hockey Sticks to hold me back. It was, with everything it had, trying to convince me that I don’t have a say in how life goes, and that I don’t get to live the life I want.
I have held back for so long because I’m so freaking afraid.
It doesn’t matter that I believe in what I’m doing with all my heart-the fear won every stinkin’ time.
This weekend, in their request for who they know me to be and in the space they provided for me, I was able to sob and blubber through a whole bunch of kleenex, get straight with what my fears WERE and align with what I know is possible-total confidence in a place of Fun, Wonder, and Love, where I get to cause miracles.
I had no idea what giving up fear would result in.
So I want to say thank you for being here in this space every Tuesday, where I get to share my life with the intention of getting to know more about yours.
