We were greeted with uplifting music, a light breakfast, and packed goodie bags. See the little package that says "BLOOM" on it above the orange juice? That unfolded to be a cute tea towel. Inside the paper bag were flower seeds, a magazine full of beauty tips, a journal and pen, snacks, a water bottle, a compact mirror, a cosmetic bag stocked with hand sanitizer, lip balm, and kleenex, and an assortment of other cards and coupons.
Kathi Lipp. Kathi had us in stitches, telling stories we all could relate to, including the one where someone cut her off in line through a drive-through Starbucks on her way to church and she reacted as we all want to in such circumstances -- by yelling out the window to him, "Unbelievable! Who raised you?" The story ended with the barista telling her that the car in front of her's paid for Kathi's drinks and said to tell her they were "raised by wolves!" I've been skimming Kathi's book "The Me Project," in hopes of finding inspiration to move forward on some projects I have in mind.
Are you ready to bloom? I am!
