Tomorrow I take the stage again at Kitchener MoMondays. This is where it all started for me just shy of 2 years ago.
Standing up and sharing my story is not an easy feat. Not at all. Honestly it’s easier to stand up and talk for an hour than it is for 10 mins.
When I get the butterflies and the fear sinks in, I remind myself of a few key things: It’s our challenges and our adversities in life that connect each of us. We are all more alike than we realize. Life isn’t about what’s happening to us. It’s about how we choose to react to our life. It’s what we DO with our life that matters. When fear kicks in, we can choose to give our energy to the fear or give it to faith. I choose faith every time. Our life is not an accident. We are all here for a specific purpose and reason. We’re meant to share our gifts to help impact the lives of others. Our gifts aren’t for us. They’re for us to share with others. We are a result of who we choose to spend our time, energy, thoughts and dreams with. Our inner circle either keeps us small and safe (not real) or it lifts us higher, and gently nudges us to think and play bigger.
I am so grateful to be sharing a new story tomorrow night and to do it along side 2 incredible friends who are leaning into their fears. So proud of you both Sharon and Kim!!

Don’t wait to get your tickets. We keep this incredible event to a limited number to keep it small, personal and to serve YOU during this day. It is a transformational day and truly a ton of fun to collaborate with incredible women!! www.marshavanw.com/events
Over the years I’ve spent many wasted hours “worrying” about this space. Judging it, judging whether I was working hard enough, wondering why things weren’t “happening” fast enough. So much wasted time and energy.
I eventually learned to honour this space. This space is where the growth occurs. Where the magic happens. This space is where ideas flourish, and where creativity spikes. It is a vital space. Everything needs time and space to grow. Everything.
This space is here for a reason and most likely for us to learn the lessons to take us to the next step. Every single step is important in our journey. No matter how small it may seem at the time.
Honour each step because every single step is required. Besides it’s worth the wait!!
