I have been celebrating all week. Words can hardly express the incredible JOY in my heart and the Gratitude that vibrates in my being. The best way I know to give thanks is to live a life that is in honoring of the gift South Africa has given me and my beautiful children. It is a gift that I do not take for granted - the more I awaken the more I understand its significance. As South Africa welcomed me home 14 years ago I had no idea what this meant - I could just feel something was different. This longing I had had, the restlessness I had experienced for such a long time, it shifted. I felt a grounding. A sense of belonging. I just knew this is where I was meant to be. I could hear my calling - purpose whispering in my ear.

I absolutely love the many puzzle pieces of The Journey. It is special to look back and feel this renewed appreciation - deeply connecting to the incredible contribution each one made to my Awakened Leadership Journey.

I speak about this incredible challenge with a purpose in last week's Wednesday Insight: GRATITUDE - with big emphasis on not falling into the trap of The Victim Mindset.

In November 2006 I was catapulted into my SA Entrepreneurial Journey. Nothing had ever challenged 'the old script' like this. It is exactly what I needed! Deep Gratitude!

A close partnership with the Department of Correctional Services (since 2008) -  What a privilege it has been to create an enabling training platform for personal values-based leadership development within 8 correctional centres across WC. TRI expanded to a full Circles of Change™ (COC) Approach within the first 5 years of operation and the product: THE CHANGE AGENT came alive, right here. Deep Gratitude!

All those who have tested me, who have challenged me, who have provided classroom upon classroom for my growth, I deeply honor you. It is in those spaces that I have been cracked upon to so much more of my potential. I could not have done it without you. You have been plenty -  and I know there are still more to come as I am not done learning. I continue to bow deeply and submit to each moment, each teaching.

None of this would have been possible without the incredible support and unconditional love of my gorgeous children Daniel and Nathalie. We have walked this journey together, hand in hand, through mountains high and valleys low. Our toolkits have been forged in the fire of this journey! It has shaped us in the most incredible way. We are better human beings because of it. Deep Gratitude for the blessing of being your Student Mom.
