The best word to describe the Vision Board workshop yesterday with Wings, an incredible non-profit in Dallas.
These women showed up and dreamt big! My favorite part of vision board workshops is the collective energy of women dreaming together.
I asked the women to close their eyes and visualize their dream coming to life. It was pin drop silence in the room...and we could FEEL the energy in the room growing. Holding that space is always an honor for me because what many don't know in those moments is that those dreams become a reality.
When you FEEL and Visualize what you want...it can't help but come to life. This is the Divine miracle. 💜
What are you ready to dream for?

Being working poor means knowing it can be expensive just to keep your job. Joanne, 25, was laid off in 2016. After nearly 2 years of unemployment, she landed a temporary admin. assistant position, which requires a 60-mile round-trip commute every day. Joanne's car is in desperate need of repair, but she hasn’t had the money to fix it in years. She’s worried her car will die, which could put her back in dire financial straits. “And I don’t have the money to buy a new one,” she said. “But I have to do it, because we need to pay the bills." #GiveForHer today to help us provide financial training and support for women in our community! wingsdallas.org/holiday/...
