Faith. Strength. Love. Joy. Passion.  All of these I wish for you every day and in every way.  I want you to surround yourself with people who nourish your soul  and  excite you to live your best life.  Seek them out!  Be with them on a regular basis.  Find connection with those who share similar values, and who value you.  I recently began reading one of my favorite books again “The Invitation” by Oriah.  I continue to be drawn to her words.  She asks deep questions and invites you to ponder your answers.  Sometimes the answers are right there in my head and for other questions, well,  I have to take the time, go deep in my thoughts, in silence and wait for the answer to reveal itself.   The one question that I include in my Joy Course when we discuss setting boundaries and taking more time for ourselves is this:

“I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself“. 

I ask the ladies in my course this very question.  Think about it.   Can you?  Can you really disappoint another to stay true to everything you believe in?  Or is your mission to please others? Do you have every intention to stay true but end up giving in because seeing the disappointment on another is too much to bear?

  Staying true to yourself makes you stronger, more confident and empowered.  When you take the time to truly know yourself, what you want, your goals, your dreams, you make right and clear decisions.  The first one should always be Stay True to Yourself.

The inspiration and positive energy you can feel from attending an uplifting event can change your life.  Attending a conference for women focusing on setting your dreams and goals in motion might be just what you need right now.  Are you in need of some creative inspiration?   Are you stuck?  Do you want to be surrounded by amazing women? 

I have been planning the September 12th conference for women “A Women’s Day of Inspiration and Joy”, for the past year with hopes it will be an amazing event.  Over the past 5 years, I have traveled to the West Coast to attend these types of trainings and I have always left inspired, confident and ready to take on the world.  The only problem was , you  my friends, were not there to take part and celebrate with me.  So here I am on the East Coast, planning the event so we can all be inspired together!

Georgianna Melendez, a life coach and motivational speaker , will be speaking about confidence and how Confidence is Sexy.   Why, you ask?  Well, because it is.   I can tell if I am speaking to a confident woman by the way she speaks, interacts with others and how she dresses.   Come listen to Georgianna speak about this topic, you will be inspired!

Dr. Julie McCullough will be speaking about Stress reduction and Healthy living.  YES!  We are too stressed!  She has an excellent presentation that will combine the medical implications of stress on the body as well as stress reduction techniques.  Dr. Julie will lower your stress and you will feel better after hearing her speak!  Come join us!

Our Key Note  Speaker, Kim Todd, Executive Director of Dress for Success in Boston will be speaking about “The Power of Compassion”.  Dress for Success is an orginization that I have happily donated my professional clothing for years.  My thinking as I bring the clothing to their really cool office in Boston is that maybe a woman who is entering the work force might choose to wear it, enjoy it and  feel confident to ace an interview.  Listening to Kim will feed your passion about compassion.  Come celebrate her inspiring words!

As for me, I will be speaking about one of my favorite topics…RISK TO GROW.  I wrote about this topic in my last blog and will talk about it at any time for any reason, I always encourage you to grow, step out of your comfort zone and grow!   There will be wonderful raffles throughout the day, the Enchanted Cottage Bakery will be there providing us with sweet treats to sample and buy, my hand-made “Joy jewelry” and note  cards will be available to purchase as well.  Oh what a fun day!  Won’t you join me and these amazing women I mentioned above? 

Registration is happening now.  If you go to my website and print out the registration form you will be one step closer to attending this exciting day.  You can also register via Paypal.

Let’s get inspired together!!
