Infinite Possibilities

Today was a delight! I lead the first session of Create Your Best Year! by setting an intention and creating a vision board that explores every aspect of that intention. It was a wonderful discussion and I really appreciate how open and honest everyone was. I saw how similar our experiences are and how perfect it is that we were all together in the workshop. I could relate to every story. I was inspired by the love and courage so many people experience in these uncertain times. It was an honor for me to lead this discussion and creative exploration.

I am so happy we were all together to look and explore life's infinite possibilities.

Miracles Happen everyday!

I have been packing my things for class today and thinking about how inspired I am to share and lead workshops in creative expression. It became so real to me last night why I love to lead workshops... my friend Dianna spent the night at my house after a night of dinner and salsa dancing with friends. We stayed up for a few hours re-living the night and laughing. Then we started to talk about miracles and how the universe provides for everything we need. I shared story after story about things that have happened, people showing up with solutions when I needed it, things unfolding perfectly despite appearances.

As I shared and she shared her stories...We got so happy and inspired. The stories kept coming. We had to stop so we could get some rest...but the energy was so electric I could hardly sleep.

Out of all that I understand why I lead creative expression workshops... I lead because I know I can have what I want and I want everyone to know that for themselves. My workshops are about creating the space to get clear about what you want and then support you in having the faith to hang on until it shows up...being flexible that what shows up may be better than you have expected.

Having faith, particularly around things I've never had before, can be a challenge to maintain. Over time my faith (not religion...but a strong belief that the universe will provide) comes from my experiences of everyday miracles. Everyday a miracle happens things work out for the better. I have learned to see them.

Today we went to breakfast in a busy part of town. My friends car is BIG so I thought parking would be really hard. When we got there as soon as we turned the corner there was a huge parking space right across the street from the cafe. It was on an end so she didn't have to parallel park. It was shaded so the car stayed cool. I say that was a miracle. It worked out better than I could ever plan. I would have been satisfied with a parking in a parking lot ... but the universe had a bigger plan.

My next workshop is

Taking special care of Me

I'm teaching a workshop on vision boards this weekend. I have a practice of taking care of myself before I teach. I want to be all juiced up this weekend. I take extra special care of myself before I facilitate a workshop. A few weeks ago a few friends and I went for a weekend of dinner, dancing and spa. It was a girly delight. We gab gabbed in the hot tub. We shared desserts. We got all dolled up to go out on the town together ... sipping champagne and listening to bossa nova. (I giggle thinking of it now).

So this week I am making a list (Yes I love making lists) of every delightful thing I will do to be fully charged up for this weekend. I started this evening...I purchased roses for my office. I lit new candles in the evening. I got some healthy fruit to snack on.

Reclaiming the beloved time...

I have fallen in love with Valentine's Day again! I don't know what it is about this February but love is in the air for me and the expression of love is so enchanting. I purchased these love plates from Cost Plus...I just love them. I eat my morning breakfast on them and they just make me smile. I spent 2 hours in Walgreens tonight reading Valentine's cards and laughing out loud at the funny ones. I even purchased the little ones kids give each at school to give out in my office. I am so excited!

I am declaring that its time to reclaim Valentine's day and celebrate it full tilt boogie. I mean celebrating the utimate Valentine's day. Celebrating a full day of Love and the generous expression of love.
