Yesterday’s podcast episode reminded me of THIS story, and what we can all learn from it. This is Susan’s Story…

The artist that painted the lovely picture that hangs in my podcast studio is a convicted felon. And this is what she had to say about it.

1. She told me she didn’t do it.

But she did. However, she didn’t intend to.

Lesson #1: Sometimes intention isn’t enough…results are.

2. She let the past into her present and it changed her life…forever.

Lesson #2: When you close the door on the past, keep it closed.

3. She went from being a successful, fun, free, Realestate Agent to being a convicted felon, serving 15 years in prison.

Lesson #3: One decision can change everything.

What decision are you willing to make today that will free you from the prison you’re in, yet never intended to enter?

Do it today.

She’s not only a reminder of YOU, but for YOU and ME on how to truly live freely and SIP ON LIFE — heart and soul.
