"Living in the Real World" ~ Lola's Log


dingdingdingding! I've reached one goal--how about you?


Here is the nicest thing about goals--now listen, carefully--this is important!

When you reach one...you get to CELEBRATE!  YAY!  And here's a worthy one to rejoice (are you paying attention?):

I reached the goal I set for my personal fundraising goal for the Heartwalk!!!  Thanks to one who shall be nameless at this time, I can now concentrate on what may be the more important goal of this whole thing:


Yes, that's right, folks, it's not just about winning prizes, or walking to show our support for a good cause, it's really about helping people understand that each and every one of us has POWER!  We have infinite power and resources that sometimes come to us in the strangest of places...so, I would like to introduce you to some of the wonderful people who have been most instrumental and influential in my life recently, one of whom is Dennis Kelly, winner of 11 National Karate Championships, and his wonderful wife Barbara, who said:

"...it appears that we are all on the same page as far as getting the word out to help others in so many areas of our life experience, and of course when it comes to the mind/body/spirit connection, it is always refreshing to hear from others express a warm appreciation for our mission, that has been ongoing for many years for both of us.  Learning life lessons after watching family members and their health challenges, we feel very blessed with the knowledge and experience we have both gained, yet are still seeking more and more from others in efforts to team up, so to speak.  I must say, that while we have been applying the concepts of "The Secret", and the Laws of Attraction, before The Secret, it is very interesting that most recently we combined our energies in a much higher gear, thus, meeting up with the meetups, with like minded individuals, who have just absolutely blown us away, with their enthusiasm, and assistance, and we feel so very blessed to know all of you   Well, when I read your email, and went to your site immediately, not only do we thank you for your interest in the class, but with my husband being a HeartMath Coach, there is a tremendous amount of scientific knowledge, life application and more that can be so very beneficial for heart patients, and preventative, and it is very simple. "

And that, my friends, is what it's really all about--connections.  Thanks to Sally, I have a new favorite song.

So, may I ask--who have you connected with, today?  I welcome you to share!
