It started off packing bags of essentials for survivors of sex trafficking so that when they were finally able to escape, they would have something that they could call their own.
What followed was something that I am struggling to put into words. Mostly women but also men, coming together for a common goal. Leaders who were lead to inspire even though they were fearful of stepping up on stage. Speakers who were emotional and not afraid to be real and cry in front of almost a thousand people. Strangers helping each other as if they have been the best of friends for years.
I have been afraid to commit myself to my business because I feel like I could not possibly be good at it. Like I could not have another voice that someone else doesn't already speak to. But I met people this weekend who saw something in me and spoke to me in a way that showed me it was completely true.
I have always been a people pleaser and I always saw that as a negative thing. But I realized this weekend that it is exactly who I am supposed to be. I was born to make people happy. That's what truly makes me happy. Ultimately I want to help people to see the way that they can live their best life and really affect the world in a positive way.
I have dreams and plans that have been inside me this whole time, I just needed something like this weekend to pull it out of me.
