I had such a FABULOUS evening listening to the amazing Danielle LaPorte speak in Hollywood at the beautiful Wanderlust Center! When I heard she would be in town I think I was one of the first to nab a ticket, and I’m so happy I did because the event was sold out. It was, in true Danielle LaPorte fashion, a beautiful night of kick-ass wisdom, life supporting and soul recharging philosophy, and real deal encouragement and love. How refreshing it was to see her in person BE exactly who I know her to be in her books and blog. Her transparency and realness is greatly appreciated, especially in the world we live in today.
There were so many takeaways from the evening but the best illustrative example I can make is the #Truthbomb that was on my seat when I entered the room (sidenote – I actually lucked out with a seat in the front row!). “Be the exception” was my particular Truthbomb and I have it now hanging on my studio wall. (Yes – I asked Danielle to sign it as well as my Desire Map book.) Be the Exception is my mantra now – and I encourage everyone to take on that truthbomb for themselves. When we all strive daily to be the exception to the norm, to the rule, to the temporary ideal that is permeating but not necessarily enriching our environments, then I believe we can start being the change we want to see in this world.
