Josie is a wonderful and engaging presenter

I really enjoyed this workshop. I got great clarity on how the brain works and how to change my thinking. I had loads of Aha moments about why I do some things I do and how to change them. Josie is a wonderful and engaging presenter who presented this topic in a really easy to understand way.

THANKFUL THURSDAYThere is a quote I recall that says if you have been brutally broken, but still have the courage to be gentle to others then you deserve a love deeper than the ocean itself. I really like this! I’ve learned that no matter what happens in life, we always have a choice as to how we respond to it. The choice: to become bitter or better? It's up to you. Just like you, I’ve faced some tough adversities - they were frightening, unnerving, even shocking at times - including ‘terminal’ dis-ease and a myriad of related health challenges, abuse, rejection, betrayal, deceit, trauma... I’ve also come to appreciate that these may well have been the only way for me to break through old patterns that no longer served me - to become a much better, gentler, compassionate and loving version of who I am - and to take charge and live life on my own loving terms. And that's certainly what I've done. Remember, even though some days you may not believe this, just like me, you are bigger than your fears. You are stronger than your battles. And you are more beautiful and loveable than you know. Sending love and hugs to you, Jx
THANKFUL THURSDAYI’m on such a high enjoying, appreciating and reconnecting with loved ones (even if only virtually... for now) and doing what I love each day! This for me is what life is all about. Loving. Sharing. Experiencing. Caring. Learning. Connecting. Growing. Serving. Can life get better?Life begins to feel hollow, empty or dissatisfying when we stop being grateful.  When we stop appreciating what we DO have, and compare with others... we start tuning into the ‘not enoughness’ of our cup. When we tune into the bounty within, we realise that we are more than enough, and we have more than enough, and that life is a wonderful creative expression of our own sense of gratitude, appreciation, mindset and ‘enoughness’. I’m so thankful for people who care for and love me. I never want to take that for granted. Sometimes I feel lonely and forget I am loved and cared for, but when I amplify these connective moments, I can relive the experience of the felt love that endures in my heart when we are apart - even with those who have departed this lifetime.I’m very thankful for the opportunities I have to speak and share my light and wisdom all over the world, sharing authentically from my heart, and giving people practical strategies and hope to heal and empower themselves to build a better life.I thank God each morning and night for this life - the highs, the lows, and all the moments in between. I’m constantly growing and challenged to be grateful no matter what for this privilege of life, learning, loving and living. I’m thankful to know I get to decide how to perceive what’s happening in life. And I’m thankful to choose gratitude, joy and love. I’m thankful to you for sharing this crazy ride called life with me. I love and appreciate you very much - and me too!  What are you grateful for today? Jx
