First, I need you NOT to miss any live events that speak to us Execumamas next year!
Seriously, how will you define, design, and live your best-case scenario life if you’re busy reading posts, taking notes, and strategizing? Those steps are muy importante, but um… the aspect of LIVING your vision, and getting the support, energy, and light of people who genuinely GET YOU is critical, mama! Without it, we’d be destined to tell our grandchildren heart-felt stories about what could have been if we weren’t too chicken shit to stop planning and start doing!
I’m not just talking about you either; I’m eye-ballin’ the woman in my mirror too. I learned so much about so much during my five days in the hills of Ocho Rios, Jamaica, and as I suspected, my lessons will affect the way you and I communicate. For those of you with whom I’ve spoken directly (either via blog post comment, email, live, or by phone), I held your vision and intentions close as I journeyed. I got access like a mofo, sis, and I’m sharing it here, now.
I set an intention to engage + balance my root and throat chakras while in Jamaica. Since last November, I’ve learned the art of surrender, and with that came the genesis of a journey into who I truly am, and what I am here to give and get. I knew being home would grant me access to my God|Self connection. I also knew that being there to deliver my Big Give was an honor that I had to completely give myself to, and learn from.
Everything is everything—that’s a common island saying, and it’s quite appropriate for the Everythings that are now much clearer, louder, and further embedded in my work as a Life Design practitioner. I’m putting you all up in my journal here (because we’re cool like dat!) So, peep the access, then create your own Oh Shit, [Your Name], Soul + Strategy List.
