A Few Lessons Learned and Winner Announced!

What I've learned this week:  That nature helps me connect to my heart.  That letting go, especially of things I love, is hard.  That being authentic and true to myself is the only way to live.  That connecting on a deeper level to a community of free spirits is enriching beyond belief.

Thanks to each of you for your support of my last post and for sharing how you are working to embrace your own authentic way of being.  I appreciate you all so much.

The winner of a spot in my upcoming Inside Out e-course is:

You all still have a few days left to register, so check out the link and give yourself a gift that will truly celebrate YOU this summer.  Isn't it time to put you and your dreams first?

Here are what some explorers have shared that they learned on their Inside Out adventure:

I've learned the importance of reviewing intentions and honoring the process of practice - profound change doesn't happen overnight and making space and time for oneself takes practice and...intention!

I've learned that I can be more than one way.  I can be a serious, ambitious medical student without sacrificing the joyous, free-spirited, light hearted, creative side of myself.  It's okay to pursue meditation and yoga and doodle in my journal.  In fact, it makes me more who I am, it makes me stronger, and instead of taking away from parts of my life, it adds to it. Thank you for that!

I have learned so much already (and I'm only on day 17.)  I've learned I need to make time in my life for solitude and stillness, that I also need to make the effort to connect deeply with other people.  I've learned that I need a space to be creative, and that I need to travel and write.

The best thing I have learned is that I have been able to take all that life offered and turn myself into a strong person, fun loving, adventurous and a support for all those in my life, and that I have no doubts about what I am anymore.  I needed a catalyst and this course has helped me take my true self beyond tomorrow.

I've learned that I CAN.  That my inner artist is there...waiting for fabric, pen or yarn to shine on through...

I have learned that I have lost my own personal confidence.  And most importantly I have learned that I can get it back!  I have learned that I can be a creative person, that I am a creative person, that I am good enough to be the person I have always dreamed of being!

I have learned how to change my world from black and white to technicolor!

Your Personal Reflection:  Do you want one more day to go by where you aren't fully LIVING the life you've imagined?  What steps can you take, today, towards creating the life you love?
