Have you met a hero? Someone who you just know will blow your socks off? I was thrilled to see that Dr Michael Beckwith (famed by The Secret) was coming to London and quickly bought a ticket earlier this year. Michael is such a heart centred man and I knew this was going to be a special meeting.
The thing was… I ended up being just over an hour late! I know! Can you believe it? I used the wrong Sunday time table and arrived as my train pulled out of the station. I drove to another station and the same thing happened… and had a 30 minute wait – for the slow train… uggghhh… Sometimes you wonder if you’re meant to get somewhere don’t you? I felt exhausted too after a crazy busy week and now wasn’t feeling too relaxed. I called my friend who was already there and said – “hmm… I’m thinking somethings telling me not to come?” All she had to say was ”It’s a test to see how much you really want to be here!” Nice reframe Darryl!
I waited, caught my train to London, got to the venue and luckily took my place on the front row, whilst Michael sat on stage with his eyes closed as his beautiful wife Rickie, sang an empowering song at the grand piano.
It really was one of the best days ever and I was so glad that I made it in the end – and to have my photo taken with Michael Beckwith along with my friends was such fun. If you were in my shoes, what would you have done? Would you have done what it took to get there – or would you have gone home? It was a great lesson for me and one I’ll remember (and I’ll be more careful with the train time table too!).
