Me: "Hey Sharon, nice cake, how long have you been cake decorating for?"
Sharon: "Never done it before, this is the first time"
Me: incredulously exclaiming (I am a gusher afterall) "You're kidding?! That is beautiful. You know, you should really get into cake decorating".
Only a couple of months later, Sharon made this cake for her daughter's wedding.
Sensational. And now she is working on her other daughter's wedding cake. I am soooo inspired by Sharon. Look what she has been doing since!
Sharon has been teaching herself this new skill from a book and online tutorials. Sharon is living a Brave & New life!
I don't take credit for Sharon getting into cake decorating, but I do believe I am a feather that helped pushed her over the edge to do it. When I showed Sharon this post (to make sure she wasn't embarrassed by it), she said "you can take credit for the push as you planted the seed in the ol brain". People tell me I am a gusher but you know, some people need to hear praise, affirmation and encouragement. I do and I will not stop gushing over other people!
Do you know someone living a Brave & New life? Are you making changes in your life, doing things you have put off for years or are you needing a little encouragement? Tell me, I'd love to hear from you (and encourage you)!
PS I couldn't end this post without a then & now of our lovely Sharon. Well done!!
