Have you ever had an experience that was so extraordinary and unexpected that it left you feeling transcendent for days?
My life has been full of incredible experiences. I’ve lived on three continents, given birth to and raised two remarkable human beings and live one hell of a great life. I am a woman with high expectations for myself, others and the world around me. This is a good way to live because my life has been so full, so incredibly rich.
Last weekend, I had one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Because of the times we are living in, changes were made last minute. Yet it was flawless. Every detail thoughtfully planned and executed. I felt held in a loving community as I launched my idea worth sharing into the world.
Gathering women’s voices to share our passion from the stage, to be broadcast around the globe is a simple idea that takes heartfelt effort to accomplish. I shared my experience today, three days later, when a friend and teacher asked about my TEDx talk. The aliveness, the divine spark, the powerful elevation that I still feel pulsing through every cell and fiber of my being, brought tears to his eyes.
It is a feeling that is indescribable to share my big idea in a space that is so safe and supportive. The hard work and the love that has gone into this talk, my talk, has left me feeling larger than life, stronger than finishing 10 marathons, which I have also accomplished.
My TED talk has already changed women’s lives as well as all of the people they love and who love them. Empowered women change the world. We change the world when we show up, when we are willing to be seen authentically and vulnerably.
If it’s not enough to feel empowered and authentic after sharing my voice and my vision for women around the world, I feel tremendous humility and gratitude for each member of the TEDx Cherry Creek Women team and the cohort of women who shared the stage. Thank you all from the depth of my heart and the breadth of my soul.
Thank you Becky, Christy, Dafna, Candice and Michael
