Are you making Fear a Friend? What if you did?

Have you ever been put in a situation where you were excited, scared a little, feeling anticipation and yet didn’t know what was going to happen?

Kind of like a surprise birthday party – or a ride in an amusement park?

Well there’s a group of people who put themselves through something new, different and unexpected every year.

I was very blessed to be a part of the planning and presenting for this year’s event for the Northwest Society of Interior Designers –www.nwsid.org  and it was an adventure!

Each year several design and home building associations gather together at a resort for their annual get away to connect, network and learn – most associations do something similar –

This association of gathered groups does it differently.

On the second day of their getaway – the group gathers and participates in… they never know what until they get there!

Think about that.

Be ready for anything – you’ll be working with people you don’t know and doing something you may have never done before.

Scary, frightening, exciting.

This works when you make fear your friend and you know even though it’s with you – you are strong enough to do whatever comes  your way.

You are you know. Strong enough, we prove it each time we show up.

Remember you create your day by the way you think. Make it magnificent!

Blessings, Shawna
