Convention Update - Friday

Extravaganza yesterday afternoon was fabulous!  We broke into smaller groups and attended 8 classes showing us fantastic new artwork created with new Fall products!  We learned several new techniques and heard from a few of the best consultants in our business!

Last night there was a mix & mingle to meet other consultants.  I chose some down time instead because I knew that today and tomorrow are going to be non-stop from dawn to dusk and beyond!

This morning we heard from the lovely, inspiring, fabulous, Mary Christensen.  Check her out at:  She gave us a lot to think about and challenged us to strive for a goal.  I'll share my goal with you after I get home.

Mary left us with inspiration from another fabulous woman, Maryanne Williamson:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most.
We ask ourselves,
"Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?"
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of GOD.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the Glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us;
it is in ALL of us.
And when we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others."

I guess you could say that I am inspired to become more!  We're off to create and learn.  Have a fabulous day, I know I will!!!
