“No man needs a vacation so much as the man who has just had one.”
~ Elbert Hubbard
I’ve been in Cebu the past several days, attending a wonderful conference for entrepreneurs. (Thank you, Chris Ducker!) While I’ve been here I have also made healing mandalas for my morning meditation each day, I have swum with tropical fish, I have networked and brainstormed and expanded my possibilities, I have enjoyed massages, and planned the next stage of my business, I have discovered useful information for my coaching clients, I have hugged many friends, I have done more psychic readings in a few days of downtime than I ever thought possible, I have danced and sung and partied and even partaken of a very few, very good alcoholic beverages – a rarity for me.
I am now busy packing before I fly out to Manila, so I will offer a few photos as evidence that a good time has been had, and that I really did manage to make it through with flying colours instead of collapsing in a heap at the end of it all.
I’ll write more tomorrow, after I’ve hugged my husband and caught up on some sleep.
Missing you all heaps, Nicole <3 xoxo

Psychic readings by the pool. Can’t complain about my working conditions. In between each session I would have a quick dip and then a cool drink. Just lovely!!!
Boat rides, swimming with tropical fishies and spectacular sunsets…
Getting ready for our White Party on the beach.
And partying at the White Party with my friends.
I had the biggest smile all night. So much fun. So many happy memories made.
I must say that it’s wonderful to be well enough to be posting things like this. Dreams do come true. Prayers do get answered. The wheel turns. If it can for me, it can for you too!
(PS – Yes, you may have spotted it. The rogue unicorn that photobombed me. It was that kind of a night…)
Like Cinderella I was home just before the clock struck midnight, and I took a selfie for my Mum to prove that I was still in good shape after all that frivolity – just a little hot from dancing. Cebu certainly puts the ‘hot’ in tropical. Here you go, Mum!
