Have you ever had one of those times when your brain was telling you to say NO, but your heart and gut were screaming YES?!!?  Deciding, at the last minute, to say YES and attend a women's conference 6 HOURS from home was one of those of those times for me.

It was another experience that reminds me to...
"Say "yes" to life -- and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you." ~Eckart Tolle

And it was a Whirlwind of Goodness!

On Thursday night I attending and help coordinate a wonderful Auction for the Foundation for our local school district where we raised over $40,000 for the kids in the district - WOoHooIes! - it always feels good to be a part of something so good! 

Then on Friday, after packing my bags and taking my youngest to afternoon preschool, I headed to Alpena, Michigan for an exciting R.E.N.E.W. (Rejuvenating, Energizing, Nurturing, and Enlightening Women) Expo for Women!

Saturday, all day, I was surrounded by wonderful women who shared insights, stories, and encouragement with each other during the all-day conference.  In the morning I was fortunate to hear Christine Wagner speak about Using Your Whole Brain for an Amazing Life.  Which was incredibly interesting and really made me think.

During Lunch and directly following the meal, I heard the amazing Debbie Phillips share her insights about being a Woman on Fire and about finding your passion.  I was inspired...and RENEWed! 

Here is a video made by the amazing Jamie Eslinger of Women on Fire that created that gives a good sense of the event (and I even make a cameo in it).

The only bad part of the experience, what that I had to head home on Saturday and with the long drive home, I had to miss the wine tasting.   C'est-la-vie ~ I had a glass of when I got home and I toasted to
saying YES to life!

What are you going to say YES to, today?
