The power to empower!

Just wrapped a talk at a local HS on nutrition and I'm feeling great about being on my path.  Oh how I love empowering other people (and being the center of attention doesn't hurt either).

After the talk from Lacy Ann on Vimeo.

Ask yourself today what would really make me happy to further my personal independence and happiness?  Is it emotional, financial, with food, a relationship, etc?  What do YOU want?  What will make YOU happy?

It's as easy as 1-2-3-4.

1. Figure out what you want.  What would make you happy? And do you need support?  Ask a friend to help ya, it works every time!  Talking to large groups can be a big hairy scary monster.  My gf and colleague Jen Moiles was my sidekick and partner on today's talk.  Her experience and wisdom inspire me all the time. 

2. Release the fear that wells up inside.  You know what I'm talking about... all those meanies in your head that say - "it's too big, you're stupid, your dreams don't count, you can't".  Release it!

3.  When you find the words, write them down, say them out loud, make a list or maybe two.

4. Get out of your own way, hold on for the ride, the universe has a way of seeing it through.  Take some time to explore happiness and delight in being you. YOU are wonderful.  Yes, you are!
Rooting for you today!

-Thanks again, Jen!  Love you big!
-Michelle it was so nice to finally meet you!
-And to the girl who asked the question about Yin and Yang if you are reading... Yin energy is represented by the Black color and Yang energy is represented by color White.

It´s simply impossible not to be inspired by you, Lacy! You are a great coach, but even better as a person!

Ahem. You're welcome. And I forgive you. First, you're welcome for making you comfy with the word "faculty"....and I forgive you for bursting out laughing and making fun of me every time I said it this summer when I was traveling with a faculty member. Lol.

Seriously, though, congrats sis. I couldn't think of a more inspiring speaker than you and I look forward to being your wing man on one of those events one day! I love you!!

so if you have one 12 ounce soda a day for thirty days, how does that convert to 50 pounds of sugar?
