OMG! I am so excited to be back on the BLOg.
I had to take a bit of time to build my new business
and do some traveling to get things rolling.
BUT... what an eXcItInG adventure I have been on these last 6 months.
All my recent travels were my inspiration for this post however,
so it seemed fitting that
SETTING DOWN THE SUITCASE
would be the 1st POST back.
This.... is the most insanely overpriced suitcase I have ever purchased.
I bought it INSIDE the AIRPORT at Phoenix, Arizona a few months ago.
I'd been in Phoenix for almost a week doing different speaking and training events
and had A LOT of stuff with me....
as well as had gathered NEW STUFF during my week there.
HEAVY stuff I might add!
Books, training manuals, computer equipment and even a new light for my videos.... SO... When I got to the airport to come back to TEXAS,
I was overloaded to say the least.
My original bag was packed to the BRIM,
and was over the 50 lb. weight limit by almost 4 lbs.
So.... I had to take out items out of my main bag
and put them in my little tote style carry-on.
NOW, I was walking around the airport (IN HEELS)
because I'd some straight from a speaking event
with my already HEAVY carry-on and a new 4 extra pounds!
So.... while I was in line at the Airport STARBUCKS
I saw this ROLLING suitcase in the gift shop.....
and in a moment of literal WEAKNESS
I paid almost $150.00 for a piece of luggage
I already have JUST LIKE it at home!
That's when the LESSON became so very clear to me.
Carrying a HEAVY LOAD makes you WEAK.
And when you are in a WEAKENED state,
you can NEVER be your BEST SELF!
AND... I have learned over the course of my studies into how the BRAIN works that.... EMOTIONAL WEAKNESS works in exactly the same way as Physical Weakness. Neuroscience teaches us the importance of BRAIN health and strength.
Anytime we are in an EMOTIONALLY WEAKENED state, our brain is NOT able to preform at its highest levels or think in its most cognitive manner.
DID You KNOW that sadness and guilt are one of the HEAVIEST loads to bare!
Listen to how I personally set my suitcase of GUILT aside
so I could move on with the purpose for which God put me here to LIVE!
Thank you so much for joining me today BACK on the BLOg...
It is my greatest desire to help people of all ages
learn to live a happier life
by learning the secrets of how to use their BRAIN!
Much love and BIG Joy as you begin LVING A GRATEFUL LIFE
