Finding the real me - blog hop and giveaway

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Albert Einstein

OKAY  How many of us are in this predicament???
Well I was set in my path - doing the same things and finding myself in a place where I didn't feel fulfilled or blissful or even great to be honest. I kept worrying about the same old things that were stuck in the back of my mind from childhood or from mistakes or choices I made years beforehand.
Then my amazing Evielove gave me the gift of myself for Christmas. She gave me an online course called Soul Restoration by Melody Ross. It is a part of Brave Girls, a program that Melody started for each and every one of us great girls so we could find ourselves again.


For the six weeks of class ( okay so it's taking me longer as I tend to wander......) you explore what is keeping you where you are and how to make changes to put you on the right path. It is all done through writing in a journal and creating art. With Melody speaking through videos, you feel like she is speaking directly to you and she is an amazing, fun woman. hmmmmm it kinda sounds like I am doing an ad for her but honestly I LOVED THIS CLASS and I can't say enough good things about it. I have taken all those childhood memories and dealt with them, I have explored why I do what I do and I have found that I am not alone - it is such a relief to listen to other girls that sound like they are saying exactly what you sometimes don't have the courage to say. I have realized that I am worth a lot, I have so much to give and that I do deserve any good that comes my way. WOW EH?

I can honestly say I am HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY and finding my way to what I really want to do and I have put many old things to rest and have realized what is important in my life - was it tough? oh yeah but is it totally worth it - YES YES YES

I have made a whole new set of amazing women that I honestly call my friends and we will keep in touch forever - LOVE YOU MY BRAVE GIRLS
