I keep having to pinch myself as a remind that I never planned anything like this but that living with purpose above goals can make anything possible.
I'm right on track but for far from where I thought the goal post would be and I couldn't have been a happier or more fulfilled person than I was today.
If there is one thing that social networking has taught me, it's that it can be those most pointless or purposeful thing we ever do.
'Project Me' has been a conscious journey of making everything purposeful and I can attribute so much of today's big event to my beliefs. That's why I decided to launch Jodene's Breakfast and believe it or not I truly struggled to give it such a bold title. Well, that will be the common theme and the very purposeful breakfast are all for one thing ... to spread the word of #FollowSA.
My breakfasts are going to always bring South Africans together and ask them a question: "Where are you? Where do you want to be and how can SA peeps help you get there?" It doesn't matter how big or small a company or dream is, there is always someone in a crowd that could make something alive with possibility. And so it began with the closest of peeps that I interact with on Twitter and today's breakfast was incredible. To hear everyone's stories and see how each person had a way of helping someone else live more of their dreams was a beautiful moment indeed.
In pictures ... here is one of the most life changing days in the direction of my career and my purpose:
Never forgetting the two men in my life who are always behind the scenes but never too far ... To my business partner and best friend, Greggie AKA @ohgodknows and to my special other half and awesome photographer who is always by my side ready to capture these priceless moments, Pat Sloane Photography!
A huge thank you to La Vie en Rose for your gorgeous venue, amazing food and special hospitality ... the girls will be back!
