As I unpack from this weekend, and pull out little treasures from our adventures around Louisville, I am in awe that this even occurred.
It still doesn’t feel like real life.
But it was very real.
We covered some real ass shit. We laughed, I had moments near tears, we posed in pretty clothes, we sweated, we ate… and ate some more, we covered a lot of business and honed my vision, got real and confronted some fears, we relaxed, we drank, we masterminded, and we lived V.I.P.!
I cannot express the magnitude to which this weekend has meant to me. To know I am worthy of greatness, to recognize what it means to stand in my power as a woman, and to be coached, supported, and merely in the presence of someone who fully believes in me and my vision means more than words will ever explain.
You have a gift, and you are a gift, Stacey.
Your ability to meet someone where they are, but also see so clearly where they want to be, and where they can be is remarkable. Then to be able to pull people towards their unseen potential through your coaching; revealing parts of themselves they didn’t even know existed, and then coaching on how to use these newfound gifts… This is nothing short of a gift, and the purest representation of living fully your purpose in this world.
Thank you for all you do, all you are, and all give.
My VIP weekend was one I could not have imagined. I set my intentions to be open, honest, and trusting, and vulnerable. I had no idea what would await me.
Within ten minutes of arriving at the hotel, Stacey and I were sitting in a lounge by ourselves. In those ten minutes, I had one of the MOST life altering challenges of my life. From that moment on, I viewed myself and the world around me differently. I was vulnerable like I had not been since an infant. I was calm and serene in a way I’d never felt as an adult. I was confident with perspective like never before.
From that moment, I experienced what it felt like to be loved, important, and taken care of. I was not allowed to be in charge. I was only assigned to receiving. Something my past self did not do well – at all.
I learned how to receive gracefully and authentically. I was allowed to express who I was as a person in this world. I was given time to rest, relax, indulge, and be completely pampered. This opened me to coaching, to self-reflection, and to change.
I am forever changed by this experience and am thankful to have been the very first Stacey Smith VIP. 💖Angela
