I just had my first Holistic Wellness Lifesaver Conference in Northwest Arkansas. In my eyes it was a success; lots of good energy, great speakers, really good exhibitors and really energetic attendees. It does not matter the modality of healing each it their own way expressed the idea that you attract what you want; if you are positive you attract positive things in your life and if you are living in a negative world you attract negative things in your life. In others words "You paint your own rainbows". I wanted 200 participants but I did not get that many, but I had just the right amount to have good traffic throughout the rooms and with many more, it would have been too crowded to get that positive energy that was in abundance. I am really tired but it is a very happy tired. I worked hard and I worked my daughters hard but we had a good time and hopefully afforded others a great weekend.
Even if I am 78 years old, I hope to do this over and over and over....

From what I hear, Helen Reddy is coming back and that song: "I am Woman" is ringing in my head. The part where it says, "I am invincible," and I keep singing it to my animals. They think I am great so I can sing anything I want. The conference is probably not going to be the full 200 but even though I am a bit disappointed, I continue to think it will be so great
The Dash Movie: Life works in strange ways. Joseph Epstein once said, "We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents, or the country of birth. We do not, most of us, choose to die; nor do we choose the time and conditions of our death. But within this realm of choicelessness, we do choose how we live."
