Last month, I finally did it! I lived a dream that has always been on my mind – gather women together to have a wholesome experience of being ‘MAPed’. For me, MAP means MOTIVATE, ADORN, PREPARE! At the workshop, we had a style expert who showed us how we can become more confident by knowing what colour or style works for us and embracing it. We also had a good friend of mine, who shared how she has been able to live her dreams inspite of her life circumstances.
The core of the workshop was however the Dream Seed. We journeyed with the story of a cabbage seed on its way to becoming a plant.
Three different seeds and three different possibilities that could happen:
- The seed lacked nourishment as it hadn’t been exposed properly and the leaves were yellow. This is the same with us – when you do not continue in the habits and life choices that grew you, you become a shadow of yourself and are no longer attractive to those around you.
- The seed was infested by pests and parasites. While this was a really sad outcome for the seed, this is the case with so many of us. Life experiences, life challenges have a way of imprinting on our hearts and preventing a big shift forward in our life and our progress.
- The manured seed. This was a beauty to behold, it looked vibrant and alive. This can be the case with our lives too. We can enjoy the benefits of #LivingFull and #LivingWell by simply focusing our lives on doing more of the things that make us better.
In summary, we concluded that to live your dreams, you must expose yourself to what nourishes you and eliminate what sabotages you. You must do the journey of discovery and embrace all that makes you win!
