When I say that I am on a mission, I am not playing. And the universe knows it.
I decided to make it my mission to do whatever I can to motivate people to learn how to access their truth and come into their authentic selves, and the universe has responded with sending more opportunities my way to share what I have to offer. Below is a little snippet of where my mission has taken me in the past few months.
In July, I was invited to speak at the Goodlife AGM for their Personal Trainers.
I loved this event! There is nothing like being in a room full of beautiful people who are open to being challenged.
I took a gamble and just pulled someone from the audience to share what they were able to access through the brief expressive writing exercise we did together. And as I suspected, the message that came through was one that everyone in the room needed to hear
That same month, I also had the opportunity to speak to a group of young francophone immigrant women at Charity Leo’s Wellness & Beauty Day.
It was so great to connect with these young, courageous women, who know what its like to take that leap of faith and leave all they know for new opportunities. As I thought about many of their experiences, particularly the women of colour who were often subjected to blatant racism, I decided to bring us all together to write a love letter to the skin we are in.
The engagement was tremendous and there were some beautiful moments of healing and connection shared among strangers who left feeling more connected to themselves and their new community.
Just recently, I travelled all the way to the wilds of Mississauga (lol) in morning traffic (which is no joke) to meet with employees at Intact Insurance for another expressive writing workshop. I was not sure whether this kind of event would fly at the workplace. But it did.
Together, we succeeded at creating an atmosphere of radical acceptance and participants learned how to break through the internal judge and were surprised to see how easily the pen moved across the page. Some even surprised me further by sharing some of the words that came through. The experience proved to me that it is indeed important to find space to bring our true selves into wherever we are, even at work, and that people are open to this.
And…This October 20, I am really excited to give back to one of the most supportive community of mom-bosses ever! MamaCon 2018, the annual conference put on by Mamas & Co., a community for mom-preneurs in Toronto, is happening and I am one of the presenters along with Erica Ehm (yes, THE Erica Ehm from Much Music) and Shane Lee Simmons of the New School of Finance. This year’s theme is absolutely up my alley: Courage in Business. I will be leading the group through an expressive writing exercise where we will access our most courageous selves to help us get out of our own way, break through limiting beliefs, face our fears and move forward in spite of them to make room for endless possibility. You can check out my guest blog on the Mamas & Co website and purchase tickets here. But don’t delay, they are already 80% sold and will likely sell out soon.
