It never fails that life delivers me with a full heart as we start the showcase every year. This past weekend marked the official kick-off of a week-long Book Launch Extravaganza. The kick-off event was a private reception with individuals that had previously taken the program that served as inspiration for my newest book. Let’s just be honest, they were my inspiration for the book. It was the privilege of being in the learning space with them and hearing their outcomes that elevated a program I designed three years ago to something beyond my wildest visions. I was incredibly moved to be able to spend time in their presence again as well as so blessed to be given the opportunity to say thank you. Gratitude is one of the greatest gifts we have in life, it empowers us to truly appreciate what is happening in every single moment and serves as a powerful reminder to never take anything for granted.
My first guest in The Grateful Showcase is responsible for making the impossible possible for so many. For me, she helped me find my voice in words. Without her, a second book would not even be feasible. In fact, a little over a year ago I was still in complete denial that I could ever write a book. Demi Stevens has a magical gift of unlocking the stories within, the stories that are so powerful that once unlocked they must be shared. She gave me a voice that I thought was long lost and she gave me the courage to use my voice and share it with the world. I now am extremely honored to be able to share her with all of you.
