Too Much Inspiration?

Is there such a thing? Last night I attended the "I Can Do It" conference in Toronto to see the keynote speaker Dr. Wayne Dyer. To say it was wonderful and all I expected and eye opening is to understate completely. He spoke on a wide variety of topics, all of which I need to let percolate and sit in my mind a bit. So too much inspiration, no, but an overwhelming amount of truth and ideas and an entire shift in thinking that requires some quiet time and meditation on my end.

The topic, the main focus of the address, was the excuses we all use to not do the things we really truly want to do. He introduced a paradigm shift to help us rid ourselves of the excuses. I'm going to extrapolate this bit by bit here at some point but for now I'm still reeling from the amount of information I received and want to completely immerse myself in the experience and formulate my thoughts. You are going to be on the receiving end of me working out the information here in the blog and I hope I can do it justice.

I am in complete gratitude that I was given the opportunity to attend last night. I am very thankful to my friend, Deb, who drove us both in and her company as usual was fun and lighthearted.

Tomorrow's topic: The Two qualities common in self-actualized people according to Abraham Maslow. Fun stuff!

I made it my personal life goal not to excuse myself from any beginnings that life presents to me. As long as I do not depend on another person, I make sure that I paint, dance, write, progress with my teeny-tiny photography business, just because I want to.

Of course there are sacrifices to be made for our loved ones, but there are also opportunities to be seized. I'm there!

I am anxious for you to share - I am a HUGE fan of Dr Wayne Dyer and I struggle with making excuses that prevent me from following my heart. I am open to learning and look forward to your upcoming posts.

Wow Breeze - what an opportunity. I can imagine your head is literally swirling with information.

I understand your need to process it before you can pass it on. I am the same with big info sessions too.

Looking forward, however, for when it starts pouring out!!!


Take care
Jen
