GIFT DAY 065: what would debbie ford do?

6 Mar

Yesterday I wrote about fear-less-ness.

Today, this workshop popped into my inbox:

Overcoming Fear by Debbie Ford

It’s Debbie Ford’s 8-week course she created for DailyOM. (Proceeds from her courses will benefit her son, Beau.)

Ironically tonight I am in the airport, afraid I might get stuck in a storm.

There is another massive storm brewing on the east coast.

Flights are delayed everywhere.

So I moved my flight up a day in hopes that I will indeed make it out of Dodge. Stormville. Blizzardopolis. Shovel Town. Whatever we are calling Boston this winter…

It wasn’t my plan.
It caught me off-guard.

So off-guard …I was in Boston for a dentist appointment today when I made the decision to leave a day early.

So off-guard …I have no baggage full of clothes or shoes with me for my trip.

The good news? I know I can do it. I’ve done it before with even less.

Ever since I made my promise not to shop for clothes or shoes for one year I learned how to handle these situations with less fear and more grace.

I also learned how to ask for help.

So today, while at my dentist appointment, I asked my dentist for a toothbrush and floss to take with me. I also asked my Boston friend Sheryl if I could borrow some shirts before I fled to the airport.

They both said yes.

So off to Chicago I go.
With the lightest baggage. EVER.

I plan to buy a new pair of shoes when I get to Chicago.
Because I can.

But I know it will all work out exactly as it should. Exactly as it will. With borrowed clothes, a new toothbrush, and faith.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore (fearless),
Jamie

    Fly safe, Sis, and be careful. Just think of how easy it will be when you get off of the plane-no having to wait for your luggage! 😉 love you!

    Dawn and I are on the same page. Hope Justin and the kids are going inland- horrible predictions for more trouble in Scituate. Safe trip and much love and admiration for all you do for all of us.
    XXOO, YSA
