FUSION 2013 - Blessings & a BIG life lesson

Saturday afternoon, (September 14th 2013) as I walked into the Moncton Casino for a sound check for Matt LeBlanc's FUSION show that was to be held that night, it struck me as to what can be achieved when a person dreams big and then believes.

I remember having doubts when Matt first shared his vision for the evening with me. But the words Matt told me that day have stayed with me... "Do your part (the story) and let me worry about the rest"

This has resulted in a really big life lesson for me...

If we all do our part and let others worry about theirs (in what ever it is we're a part of)... Imagine how much easier it all becomes...

It's when we fuse all of those individual parts together that we witness the powerful magic of teamwork...

I feel blessed to have been a part of the team that has helped bring this big vision to life.

FUSION 2013 has brought many blessings into my life...

It's impossible for me to describe the feeling of seeing the story unfold live on stage...

SECOND: I got to have one of my original songs become the backdrop for an incredible original choreography... not to mention that I also got to play that song live on stage as the dance was performed.

THIRD: Perhaps the most important blessing/lesson for me was the fact that I was able to detach myself from my individual contribution and not have my ego start this internal dialogue of "yeah but this was all possible because of my this and my that". Instead, I was able to take a step back and appreciate the big picture as it all unfolded in front of my eyes as I got to appreciate the fact that none of it would have been possible without each one of those individual contributions...

Just like no river could ever be without the millions of individual drops of water... none more important than the other.

I am grateful... I am excited... I am blessed...

Much love,

Remi :)

Every season has a reason

If you were to look back on your life and try to divide it into different seasons (like I talk about in my book, The Life Gardener) perhaps there have been a few of them that you're not particularly proud of. But trying to see each one from a perspective of "there had to be a good reason for this" can be the difference in you living a life of regret and you making the best of what you have.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Channing-Tatum.jpgAn example I like to use when I'm speaking in front of a group is the story of a man called, Channing Tatum. If you're a lady (or if you've been paying attention to what your lady has been talking about this past year), you'll know that Channing was the lead role in the hit movie "Magic Mike".

Why is this important?
