The sweetest fruit is always at the end of the tree. I heard that somewhere but I can't exactly pin-point the source. This is a lesson that I had to learn in conquering my latest fear , which was hosting my first ever event for Theevolutionfoher. Sure , I doubted myself and thought "who would support me?" , but those thoughts weren't allowed to take precedence over the possibility that I might actually have the support I needed. And so I did , for months I wrote down plans and goals that I had for this event and watched the seed that I planted , grow into something beautiful. I had absolutely NO money , all I had was a dream.
The sweetest fruit is on the limb , and we must choose to go out and get it. It makes sense because we can't get that fruit while climbing the protective trunk.
Well , I went out on that limb , literally with nothing but a dollar and a dream. I planned , purchased and booked the date with no idea that I would sell out ! My sole intention of this event was to teach women that regardless of what society says about women & friendship and the definition of beauty , they are enough and able to maintain healthy relationships that kindle growth .
I am so glad that at the age of 19 , I am able to touch women of all ages and be a listening ear.
What was Sip & Selfie ?
Today , I can say that I enjoyed the fruits of my labor ! My dream , which was to fill a room with smiling and mingling strangers , came true.
As I brainstorm for the next great thing to bring to YOU , I challenge you to do this : Go out on a limb.
Whether it be a big event , a roller coaster , a challenge of some sort ...do it .
Here are some pictures from 'Sip & Selfie' !
