This is a quote made by Jim Rohn, motivational speaker and self-help guru that I totally agree with. When I decided I wanted to heal my life, I asked God to guide me to the right teachers, places, events, classes, retreats and experiences.
Early on, I began to realize that my mom and my sister were the first two of my greatest teachers. My mom has taught me faith, trust in God, compassion, kindness, unconditional love and forgiveness. She has walked through her forgiveness work with grace and ease. She is strong and she is faithful. I am very grateful to have her in my life during this stage of my expansion. She has been here for me through it all. She has been my teacher, nurse, therapist, prayer warrior and so much more. Now she is a mayor and politics isn't a pretty business. She and I have had to navigate a lot of growth during these years and it hasn't been easy for me to watch her be tore apart. Thankfully she is wise and can handle it. Me not so much. I could never or will never go into politics!
I also have gratitude to God that my sister is my first friend and continues to be my friend, cheerleader, confidante and barracuda when I need her to be one. She and I have the blessing of being able to say anything to each other and get mad and grow and heal and love. She is a vision of courage, strength, faith, love and so much more. She doesn't like me talking about her so I won't say much. Just suffice it to say I love her so very much and I am grateful God sent her to be my friend. He knew I would need her and I am so blessed.
She is on the move and if you are interested in opening a chapter or speaking, you can apply at www.womentalk.ca. I look forward to my talk in Okotoks in 2018. Dates will be announced soon! I love this lady so much. She is an inspiration and attracts the most amazing women to talk and share and in turn shows us we are all more alike than different.
Even the ones that showed me the ugly parts of me... To those ones I say a sincere thank you for the lessons.... for I don't see them as tragic, I seem them as a blessing. I thank God for every single experience. I thank God for loving me no matter what. I thank God for my abundance and my health. I thank God for all my blessings that haven't yet arrived.
