What better way to begin a new journey in life than by attending The Life You Want Weekend in San Jose, CA. I am so honored to be attending The Life You Want Tour as a media guest. I woke up last night (in the middle of the night like I do every night) and to my surprise an email was awaiting me from OWN letting me know that I was confirmed to attend. But let me take a minute to back track as to how it was even made possible for me to attend. I received a call a few weeks ago from a friend who just so happens to be the Editor In Chief of Swagher Magazine. She let me know that she was not going to be able to attend The Life You Want Tour in Houston. But she wanted to know if I knew of someone in the Houston, TX area that could go as a correspondent for the magazine. I immediately thought of my other friend who happens to be the Editor In Chief of Mind Of A Diva. I connected the two and the rest was history. I am a firm believer that what you make happen for others God/the universe will make happen for you.
“It has been a dream of mine forever to create an event where you can wake up to all of your
potential and your possibilities. If you come and spend two days with me and a team of true life
trailblazers – Deepak Chopra, Elizabeth Gilbert, Iyanla Vanzant, Mark Nepo and Pastor Rob Bell –
your life is going to light up. I’m telling you, it’s going to be so good.”
So now I am preparing myself for this amazing weekend. I have been doing the daily meditations with Oprah and Deepak Chopra for the past few days this week. I am getting myself laser focused on my goals and desires. I want to be in position for 2015 and beyond to LIVE the life that I desire. I happen to have some friends that have attended the tour in other cities and states like Atlanta and DC. They have all spoken very highly of the weekend.
Did you attend The Life You Want weekend or do you know someone that did? How did it impact you? If you didn’t attend, how are you preparing yourself for the New Year? Are you creating a vision board/journal? Let’s inspire one another to live the life that we desire. I can wait to share with you my “aha moments”.
