A blog from the heart …
This last weekend caused a change in my life that is hard to describe. What I am trying to grapple with is the fact, I had wanted to attend this event for nearly 3 years but every time I thought about it, I couldn’t part with the money. If it was an item of clothing, a pair of shoes or a new handbag, I wouldn’t have hesitated. It seemed that if I could touch it, feel it and see it – it was somehow worthwhile. Why didn’t I treasure what I had on the inside as much as how I looked on the outside.
The course was an intensive 2 days of personal and professional development, which included challenges around how you live your life and what you need to do in order to break-through obstacles and start fulfilling your dreams.
How and what I value in life is looking different now. Some memories of my past are now experiences that I treasure. The tears I shed were tears of joy rather than sadness. It was an experience that words can’t explain and has left an indelible mark that will stay with me forever.
It is the start of a new love affair with me, not just my clothes.
