In a recent interview with Thrive Global I was asked to share the most interesting thing that has happened to me since starting my business/career
Let me tell you, there have been a lot of “interesting” things
Weird things, creepy things, cool things, miraculous things, sad things—all interesting by definition
But here’s the story I thought of...
The week leading up to my very first event everything that could go wrong, did
My event venue canceled on me
I had a massive family emergency
My dog passed away
Parts of my town and surrounding areas caught on fire with evacuation warnings and road closures everywhere
Can you believe that all happened within a few days of each other and all at once?!
Not just any week
But the week of my first Build More than Just a Body live event
Hosting an event is no joke. There’s a lot that comes together at the end but luckily I was well prepared
I was able to press on and get everything pulled together
The event ended up being amazing and far surpassing my expectations despite a very rough week leading up to it!
That week I felt a lot of emotions but also suppressed a lot of emotions
I knew I had to be a clear vessel to hold space for others which meant feeling emotions would be important but I also knew I couldn’t fully surrender to them because I needed to keep my head in the game so to speak
There was much to get done!
This taught me so much about the power of letting go, going with the flow, and not being SO attached to perfection
Amazing how the lessons of life are applicable nearly in any area, issue, or challenge
I love the way growth presents itself in mysterious ways
We can either accept the opportunity in the challenge or crumble under it
This photo was captured at my event taking the women through a body image meditation in an absolutely gorgeous event venue that was 2x the investment but WELL worth it
Everything always works out and the universe was telling me I deserved more & forced me to accept it 😉
