Happy 2017! A little late…but this is my first blog post of the year!
Do you ever get that deep gut feeling about something that you can’t deny? Maybe you meet a stranger out somewhere and you just know they’re meant to be in your life or you are presented with an opportunity and even though it seems scary you know you need to take it.
That is how I felt a few weeks ago one when one of my fellow Houston Latina Bloggers posted on a facebook group asking if anyone wanted to host a vision board event. As soon as I read the post my heart screamed “YES!” I had been debating for weeks whether I should host my first event or not. What was stopping me? Fear. Mainly of having to run the show and talk in front of a group of people. I strongly dislike public speaking or that’s just what I’ve always told myself. I also thought what if no one signs up! That would be pretty bad. But as quickly as these thoughts went through my head they traveled out. I knew I was meant to do it.
I started promoting the event through social media and I felt in my heart the right people would see it and attend. My goal was to have 10 women attend. I had 17 amazing women show up the day of the event. The craziest thing was that as I was shopping for materials for the event, my boyfriend suggested I purchase 17 of the main materials. I was only expecting about 12 ladies to show up for sure. I didn’t want all these extra materials to have to return, I thought. But I said fine, and I bought 17 items. And sure enough, exactly 17 ladies showed up!! I don’t know about you but I take that as a God wink. A sign from the Universe.
The event was a success and I surely will be hosting similar events in the future. And want to know something else!? I didn’t even feel a bit nervous throughout the whole event. Thank goodness, my nerves didn’t get the best of me.
I want to encourage you today to take that chance, say yes to that opportunity, and take the time to listen to the signs that the Universe provides to you. They’re all around you and they are waiting for you to notice them.
Thank you to @Thinking Girls Boutique for hosting the event!
The ladies are ready to get clear on their goals for 2017.
Amazing vision board by one of my attendees, Karla!
Cheers to an amazing 2017!
