Shirley Owens: So I'm reflecting on my conversation with Justin Schenck today, and at the end I asked him the same question I ask everybody and that is what would you change or do differently if you could? And his answer was the same answer that I get almost from every single person. And that is, "I wouldn't change anything. It's made me who I am." And it's interesting because people ask me that all the time, like, all of the things that I've been through, everything that I've experienced, the good, the bad, the ugly, the horrific, what would I change? Or what I change anything? Or people would say, or will say to me. Oh, I'm so sorry that you went through that, or I can't believe you had to go through that, or bothers me every day that you'd go through that. And what I realized is that I am who I am because of everything I've gone through.


“I am who I am because of everything I've gone through.” –Shirley Owens

And I would not be this person, had I not gone through every one of those things. And one of those things being changed could have rerouted my whole life to be something different than I am, and I really love who I am. I love the ability that I have to help others. I love the obstacles that I've overcome so that I can help others overcome the same obstacles. So I want my listeners to understand something and I think it's super important and that is, "Wherever you are right now is perfect. There's nothing wrong with it, it's perfect."


“Wherever you are right now is perfect. There's nothing wrong with it. It's perfect.” –Shirley Owens

You are in the perfect place for your journey. Make yourself aware, think about how you can progress. Think about what you can learn from everything that's happened and then just continue on to the next day, and wherever you are the next day is perfect. That is my reflective moment for the day. And I think it's super important. Doesn't matter where we are, we're right where we need to be and whatever we need to learn from it, as long as we learn it, then we'll progress and we'll get to the next place.


“It doesn't matter where we are, we're right where we need to be and whatever we need to learn from it. As long as we learn it, then we'll progress and we'll get to the next place.” –Shirley Owens

So thank you for listening and have a beautiful day.
