This morning, a friend sent me a text, along with this story.
She said: "I am not much of a crier, but this one got me."
Well, minutes later, it got me - and I think it will get you, too. In a delicious way. In super soft places where we love to be gotten.
Enjoy, and here's to love, however it looks for you, today.
My friend Marcia (creatress of the way awesome Wileyware drinking glasses) wanted me to meet her friend Matt Cone, as she thought that he and I may have some business crossover ideas to talk about.
Matt being the person responsible for the ticket I got in the mail, a couple of weeks ago, I had a feeling she was right.
So lunch was had, and it was fun to hear what Matt was up to. One of the things he is pretty excited about is what he calls his "Abundance Model," which he explains here, in a short TEDx talk.
I think you may enjoy it too.
Wishing you a lovely, inspiring and abundant day!
Quietly, steadfastly, he sews. Because he wants to, because he has to.
Campbell has eight siblings, and in the mist of that, he is still able to hear his own voice, and listen to what he knows to be his gift.
Take a looksie.
Island Bliss Retreat
July 12 to 19
Happiness Retreat in Italy
"Thank you for sharing your wonderful, heartbreaking, exhilarating experience with the world."
"Thank You Laura for sharing, for teaching and spreading loving kindness. "
"I think I love you. You bring good things into my life, or remind me of things I love and know, but have let go of."
"Laura, you are so good for me. I laugh and sniffle and get the shivers when I read your essays. Thanks so much for letting all your wonderfulness run around loose."
"Heart-achingly beautiful, your words and how you reveal your truth."
"Thank you so much for who you are and what you share with the world. Your mere being transforms lives as it has transformed mine. This particular post did to my heart what water does to parched soil."
"Thank you for your gentle words that are packed full of wisdom. I have been struggling with the concept of what words can do to another person when they are negative words. Your words are the flip side of our word power, and shows how delightfully powerful kind words can be. Thank you."
"Once again Laura Lavigne takes you on an adventure of the heart. She has a way of pulling you right in the car with her. Asking you to consider changing a fear to taking thoughtful action. Whether she's teaching a class, leading a retreat or heading for a happiness sprinkling, Laura will invite you to shed old ways of thinking and be completely authentic. Join in!"
"Essentially pure love.
I enjoy how Laura is kind to herself and to us other humans who dance in and out of each other's lives. "
"Don't miss a post!
You can count on Laura for warmth, humor, charm, and a lift to your day and your heart. She inspires me to be braver than I am, and to love the world out loud. She's a gem, and a generous one at that!"
I write because this is the way I am able to taste life more deeply.
