So Blessed~

What an amazing weekend it has been, though I am a bit under the weather I didn't let that stop me from making the most out of my weekend.  After spending most of the day Friday in the emergency room to find out I am going to get emergency surgery to remove my gall bladder I decided that I could stay home and feel bad or push past the pain and go to a training event in San Jose with friends and family.

Wow, what an awesome road trip with some of my favorite people!  I love you all so much, thank you for the best day ever!!!

Having Friends who Care So Much Rocks!!!
I have needed my gall bladder out for some time so no new news there, I won't bore you with the details.  What is new and great news is what happened this weekend.  I got to connect with so many people, make so many new friends and advance my thinking on issues like the law of attraction and facing our fears.

Regionals in San Jose was off the hook, hundreds of people and the energy in the air was uplifting.  I haven't had so much fun since I can't remember when.  I was brought to tears several times being touched by others who shared their stories with the crowd of how their lives have changed.  One woman who spoke has lost over 170 pounds and she really touched me when she talked about what it means to be obese and how few understand the pain that goes along with living in a fat suit your whole life.  So many stories, so many lives changed and I was so blessed to be a part of it all!

Being a part of this team is so cool, you all seriously rock, thank you for the love and support while I change my life!

There are two types of people in this world... Those who let life happen to them
and those who make life happen for them!  Weather you decide YOU CAN or
YOU CAN'T, You're Right!
I couldn't believe how many people came up to me and said "You're JoJo, omg I love your videos, thank you for being so honest, you are an encouragement to so many!".  Hearing that lifted me so high, you know making these video's and being so honest about it all is really scary.  The fear of being judged is a strong fear.  Pushing past that fear and realizing the impact doing so has on myself and so many others is enlightening and helped me to realize that those who judge me are dealing with their own issues that have nothing to do with me.

Our fears have a way of tricking us into believing that we can't accomplish our dreams.  Overcoming our fears with courage and love of ourselves has a way of awakening us to our own inner power to make all our dreams come true.  Facing all my fears, learning to love and accept myself is teaching me how powerful I am, how valuable I am and showing me a whole new life.  One filled with awesome people who care about me, my feelings and my success.  I guess the old saying "Birds of a Feather flock Together" is pretty true.  Now that I don't waste my days being held back by my fears of rejection I have all these awesome people in my life who don't waste their time and energy putting others down to lift themselves up.  No, the people I know today are lifted up already and spend their energy lifting others up.

F-E-A-R has two meanings!
1. Forget Everything And Run or 2. Face Everything And Rise
The Choice is Yours!

My youngest son is coming down to take care of me while I recover from my surgery.  I am so excited to see him and so blessed to have his help.  I can't wait to get this over with so I can get back to giving my workout 150%.  I also have been accepted as a volunteer at the Family Homeless Shelter here in Santa Cruz.  I get to help people who are down on their luck two days a week for 3 hours each day, that is the biggest blessing of all.

I feel so grateful to myself for taking this journey of self love and so glad I decided to honestly share it with the world.  I had no idea that my being honest while I learn how to change my thinking, my life that so many people would respond.  I have over 70 Countries tuning in now.  I guess love is contagious and although my spelling isn't the best so many people from all over the world have reached out to support me on this journey.

I want to give a special thank you to all those who have sent me emails of encouragement.  Your letters have meant so much to me.  I would also like to welcome a couple new Countries to the One Love Journey.  Welcome to Maldives, Hong Kong, Argentina, Romania, Luxembourg, Czek Republic and Indonesia!  So awesome to have you join the Journey.  Thank you for your love and support.

I would like to give a huge shout out to my ViSalus Team for helping me to become a better, stronger me and for lifting me up, helping me believe in my dreams and above all for helping me to help others change their lives too!  I seriously love all of you, we rock!!!

I can see my future... It's Bright!!!
Today I am taking it easy, taking care of me and getting lots of rest.  Emotionally I am on top of the world and know that this is only the beginning!  Had a vision yesterday while Nick was on stage speaking about the law of attraction and the power of our thoughts.  I saw myself doing a cartwheel on that stage when I reach my goal weight.  I am going to do that cartwheel, going to surf again and going to enjoy making all my dreams come true.  I love you all!

I love you all from a place of feeling whole, complete and encouraged to make life happen for me!

One Love
