That's What She Said!

Today, I attempting to explain a project that I am working on. I am so excited about this, as you will see from my whackadoodle behavior in the vlog below. 
Bottom line: dream a little dream, ladies. Dream it, say it out loud, make it a reality. Find your tribe and make it happen.
We get one shot at this life, make it count. I'm sorry to go all sappy on you, but really! Really and truly, use your life, use your gifts, and be your own superhero. 
"Leap and the net will appear." 
I took a big leap last year and quit my teaching gig. Since then, I have been in the best selling book I Just Want To Pee Alone, took to the stage in The Listen To Your Mother Show, went on a mission trip to Haiti, and became a weekly contributor for In The Powder Room. 
Each of those adventures had one thing in common: an awesome tribe. When I was scared out of my mind, I always had people to say, "Keep going. You've got this." Find those people.

  10. I love this! It *is* so important to find your tribe! I was just replying to a comment this morning about an email that went around years before Facebook that told the story of a young woman about to get married and the advice/moral of the story was "get yourself some girlfriends." The story listed all kinds of reasons for needing girlfriends in your life and every one of them has proven true for me and my friends.

    Thanks for sharing!!

  12. I am definitely trying! I was afraid to start a blog, too many kids, not enough time to research, let alone write, etc etc etc and the people I have met through the Honest Voices group have helped me SO MUCH! They are a great, smart tribe! Speaking of that tribe, I saw you on their Unicorns blog hop!
