This sums up most days...
It's been a big few weeks!
I believe it started when I invited Carol down to speak at our Yes! Group. (A faith-based initiative that supports LCHF weight loss in a small group setting). In her story she shared about taking women on retreats...I thought they were missionary retreats, helping spread the gospel...they were pilgrimages that she led. Inspiring people to find themselves. Something clicked!
The next morning I heard the whisper..."Do a retreat with Carol"...Well I called, and she immediately agreed...and now, it's official!
We will do a day-retreat Sept 23rd. 9-5
Right after this, we started a wonderful Book Study with Karen Thomson's book Sugar Free
And.....just BEFORE my friend Maureen goes LIVE on our first night, she thinks we can do this together and all of a sudden, we're both live on Fb LIVE! An interview, chat style was born. It was a game changer for me!
Then...Kristie Sullivan and I got into the act together discussing Brave and sharing stories.
Right before this event I sensed a deep stirring with in and this is what I wrote down:
I have the most unique feeling....Like I'm about to step into something I was made for...it's such a peaceful place...the next unveiling of things....just like seeing the "retreat" in my minds eye...
My friend, Mo! She has a vision for me, she has a desire to help me "make it"...to find not only my voice, but my style! She has ideas bigger than mine...(it's a bit scary)...and she always leaves the most gracious room for me to find myself in her ideas. I think she just waits me out until I stumble on it!
She thinks we need to interview "Keto Influencers" you know, the BIG names. I get it, but I don't feel it. She can interview the big names. Then I was in conversation with a gentleman who met Gary Taubes and Gary said something to this man and it's changed me! Gary said something about, "Now we need the "every day person" with the success story to rise up and talk" IT CLICKED IN ME...I want to talk to the EVERYDAY person, because when they tell their story, they LIGHT UP! Seriously light up...it changes them and it changes me. Telling your story is a huge theme I share with all my clients. When everyone can see your success you need to be ready to explain...and since it's Keto, it makes you an ambassador right then and there...Represent well!
So this Saturday morning I launch my "show"
I'm the person who tries ON ideas and sees if they fit. One minute it looks like I'm over here trying this, writing, small groups, blogs, c3 Nutrition and then I'm on to the next thing...(Yes I'm ADD, but it's all for the fit!)
It's the power of our story and the power of community. Those 2 themes have come to settle in me! This is where I want to build. This year my personal statement was
I wanted to "ADD VALUE TO OTHERS...BY WELCOMING THEIR SUCCESS AND ENCOURAGING THEIR VOICE" (March 2017)
I also wrote it this way: "HELPING ESTABLISH EMERGING DIET SUCCESS INTO THE PLACE OF HELPING OTHERS" (Feb 2017)
and my last goal this year was: "Increase my Global awareness of LCHF and increase local influence"
It's June, and I don't sleep much BECAUSE so much has been clicking into place. My search is over. Now it's time to build these 3 pathways. Small groups, Retreat, and Interviews. Stay tuned!
