Sometimes the funniest things happen when we least expect it. I moved into a new place last September. One of the tasks I’ve left undone is replacing the shower head with a water filter version. Yet something has held me back – fear of plumbing? When I finally decided to tackle the “project”, it was as easy as twisting off the old shower head and replacing with the new – I did the job with my bare hands! Hmmm…just goes to show you that sometimes our slightest fears can hold us back from something we really want to do. Which reminded me of something Cherie mentioned a few days ago. When she gives inspirational talks, she asks people what is holding them back from living their dreams. Many people raise their hands when she mentions time or money. And then she always says – don’t let time or money (and I might add fear) hold you back from what you really want to do. A favorite quote of mine is “Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!” Would you like to live YOUR dream and be among our Living Light graduate success stories? What’s holding you back?
Cherie will be giving a talk on Monday, September 6th at 7:00 PM at Shay Lynn Baird’s popular event in Healdsburg California: Monday Night Live at Cafe Gratitude. The topic will be Careers in Raw Food, and Cherie definitely is the person I know who is most qualified to speak on this topic. The photo on the left is of Cherie and Chad Sarno in the early days of Living Light. He went through the Living Light training, became a Living Light Chef and Instructor, and toured with the school for many years when it was still a “gypsy school”, traveling to locations around the world. After leaving Living Light to launch an incredibly successful independent career, Chad went on to become an internationally known chef/consultant, opening restaurants all over the world. And he is just one of the success stories at Living Light.
Living Light and Cherie Soria are success stories in themselves. From the early years, Cherie, husband Dan, and their staff have worked hard to create the professional, well respected facility that Living Light has become over the past 12 years. In fact, most of the chefs featured in the recent Living Light Chef Showcase are Living Light graduates who have gone out in the world to create exciting careers. The list is just a small sampling of Living Light student success stories.
