My Friends Seriously Rock!

The sunset in the Mountains of Santa Cruz County was mesmerizing tonight as we drove through Scotts Valley and Felton picking up donations from friends for my booth at the Santa Cruz Flea Market tomorrow.  A few awesome friends on my ViSalus team came together and donated some cool stuff they had collecting dust in their garages for me to sell at the Flea Market to raise money for my trip to St. Louis to go to a Visalus National training event.

Kamala and Sean
Thank you so much for being such an inspiration to me, for always lifting me up
and for making my days so much brighter just by being you!
Along with these great friends coming together to help me help myself I have the generous assistance of some of the younger men on our team and their friends as well who helped me collect the goodies and are helping me run the booth tomorrow.

One of the many One Love bracelets that Kamala and I made, they so rock!
Come on down to the Santa Cruz Sky Line Flea Market tomorrow and visit
our booth!  If you can afford a donation that is okay I will accept a hug. smile!

My nephew Sean and his girlfriend Kamala came through as well to help make One Love bracelets to offer for a donation at the booth and Kamala volunteered to stay the night at One Love so we can get up early and get moving!

A Few Great Men!
All these people coming together because they believe in me and see me working so hard to better my life.  It is so amazing to be in a place in life where friends and loved ones are rooting for me with such enthusiasm and generosity.  These are mostly the same people in my life who saw in me all along what I couldn't see in myself when I had no love for me.  It is a trip how others can see in us what we can't so often and we see in them what they don't as well.

"Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." ~ Roald Dahl
I think that because we view ourselves as separate from everything and everyone else we think that everyone else is better or has it better than we do.  I also think that living in a world where we are taught to hold our feelings inside and pretend we are always "fine" we don't realize that no one is really all that fine all the time.  We also don't realize that being "fine" is not "great".  Great is a space of being that can be held in the greatest and hardest of times when we begin to understand that all events are experiences and all things and people are connected.

These young men are so quick to help anyone who needs it, I cannot believe how
amazing these guys are, every day they shock and surprise me with the level
of care and concern they have for everyone in their life.  I love ya'll so much!
I had a great day, I got to go down to the Family Homeless Shelter and donate some children's clothes and shoes and see my best friend Charles and his beautiful daughter who is one of my very favorite people in the world.  Had the best time laughing and enjoying the amazing sky while driving around town with the boys and all that after an awesome morning of some girl time with my niece Kaili.  Now I have the pleasure of Kamala's company before calling it a night which I am doing here pretty soon as we are getting up at 5am, haha.

I am.  Falling in love with life, falling in love with me.
I just want to say one more thing.  There isn't a day that goes by that I am not grateful for something in my life now that I love me and look at all of life with love and acceptance.  I know I talk about it a lot, I hope you understand that for me this is all so huge and amazing.  I spent 42 years of my life living in a world of self doubt and fear and this last year, my 43rd year has been the best of life for me.  In less than a year I have learned more about my purpose for being here and gained more understanding and acceptance for the ups and downs of life than ever before.  I am more at peace than ever.  I can't help but share it and say it over and over for a while.  All it took was me having the courage to get out of my comfort zone and learn what it means to love myself.

I love you all from a place of wishing everyone in the whole world the same love of self that I am experiencing today.  I wish for each and everyone of us to see the whole world through the eyes of love and forgiveness with the understanding that we are one people of one world sharing one love!

Goodnight my friends
One Love
