summer 07. my good and darling friend kalya came to visit me in utah. she brought with her a thirst for change. we decided to spend the next couple of days dedicated to ourselves. we went to walmart and bought notebooks and pens of all colors. a trip to the book store was next, where many uplifting books were purchased. lastly we came back to the house laid a blanket on the grass and watched the temple start to glow as it go dark. we literally spent the next couple days reading books, sharing insights, and writing in our notebooks. One of the books that Kayla introduced me to during her visit was Succulent Wild Women by Sark. if your looking for a fun book dedicated to being a girl and kicking butt in this world, read this.

there is one exercise that we both particularly liked. it is simple, yet meaningful. try it out when you have 20 to 30 minutes to spare.

get a piece of paper and start to list your fears, worries, and concerns about life. my list was about 9 things. i have done this with other people who had lengthy lists with about 25 things. after your list is complete. get a new piece of paper. on this new piece of paper you are going to write yourself advice about the worries you listed before. give the advice as if you were comforting a friend. the end results are amazing. i still have the list i made with kayla years ago. it stays in my wallet and goes with me everywhere!
