While cleaning out some office files I happened upon some post-its that I’ve been carrying around from file to file since 1999 (I remember exactly where I was when I wrote them!).  Miraculously they’re all still together and amazingly, the message still gives me chills.  I wrote it when I was desperate to escape  Corporate America, envisioning the kind of life I wanted for myself. Looking back, I’m thankful that I was intuitive enough to really understand what my soul was yearning for.  What a great check-in, 12 years later!
Please enjoy and feel free to pass along & share…
