GoGirl Founder/CEO female-empowering emissary extraordinaire Jennifer Murphy caught up with bestselling author, self-mastery and mindfulness expert, and keynote speaker Valerie Sheppard to discuss her latest inspirational ventures. And, unsurprisingly, it’s full of heart…and happiness!

Despite her endless Barbie Jeep blunders, Jennifer was finally able to make her meeting with Valerie Sheppard for a GoGirl-to-GoGirl chat about creating peace and positivity within your life, regardless of the unceremonious curveballs you’re thrown. Take a look at some of these sage takeaways from their exclusive, light-hearted meet-up. You’ll definitely want to make some mental notes!

Valerie is the #1 International Amazon bestselling author of “Living Happy to Be ME!: Dancing Your Soul Lightstyle.©" The current keynote motivational speaker and lecturer at the University of California, Irvine recommends that if you’re feeling a little “off,” burnt-out, or disenchanted with what’s going on in your life, whether on a professional, spiritual, or personal level, it’s best to “stay the course” and not give up because there are opportunities around every corner. But, most importantly, staying in the highest vibration possible – the attitude of gratitude – is the absolute, most significant stand you can take away from ANY situation. 

 

Always choose happiness and look for that proverbial silver lining in every circumstance, because it is invariably there. And, don’t be afraid to make some leaps and bounds by making necessary changes – no matter how scary, daunting, or onerous. Life is an endless sea of ebb and flow. Things are not meant to stay stagnant. Change is inevitable and imperative for personal growth and spiritual awakening, and allows one to open up to receiving new opportunities, paths, and rewarding journeys. 

 

The catastrophic stroke survivor gleefully enjoys devoting time volunteering at the Hanalaeh horse rescue and shooting at the archery range to rehabilitate her body.  Valerie also revealed how most of us have, rather unfortunately, been conditioned to think if we don’t “work hard” or struggle, we won’t succeed or procure all the prosperity and abundance life has to offer. She suggests this way of thinking is simply counter-productive, damaging, and not true. Instead, she offers using the context of “play” instead of “work.” This seemingly simple shift in mindset can help open up our minds to infinite inspiration, creativity, and intuition, while allowing us to live from our “hearts.” Imagine that! Shift your focus and experience the magic that awaits. Click the video to see the entire, elucidating interview.
