I had a great experience at the #ascendwithme event. It was the first time I attended a conference like this and I am glad I did.
Here is why:
#1- I am so glad that I decided to stop my normal “mom”routine in the middle of the week to do something for myself and completely out of my norm. It’s something I would never do! I had to pull my kids out of school for the day, call grandma in for some help, wake up at the crack of dawn drive almost 2hours to get to an event that could potentially change my life. So with all that I sacrifice for my family I was so happy that I made the choice to do something that could inspire my spirit and progress my business and get rid of the mommy guilt for 1 day! Yay me 👏🏼
#2- I struggle with the lie, I know it’s just a lie but still so deeply instilled ... that I am never enough. To be able to listen to people who I am inspired by, who are successful but so authentic express how much they felt like they were never enough, was the connection I needed to inspire me to get over myself! Yes, I said it! I know it. This self growth stuff and awareness isn’t new to me, I know that every time I feel this way or talk to myself harshly it is just my fear creeping in and insecurities that I don’t need to have and that aren’t always mine... so I need to get over it and I sometimes need that reminder, but to have that connection with someone walking in the shoes you want to, gives you such hope.
#3- I am the biggest advocate of self development. I am very self aware of my feelings, situations... but everyone’s situation is different. It’s so easy to “solve” other people’s situations... until you really listen to them. Listen to every part, emotion, detail... you’ll make a different connection, you’ll learn a different type of respect and empathy. You’ll learn your way, isn’t the only way. The speakers did a phenomenal job. The authenticity and connection they made was beautiful. You can tell who is in it simply for the money or for impact. The impact was REAL. So many people might think these things are crap, but I didn’t spend a dime... but I left with gold. You feel me?
