The Do Something! Tour
It started as a joke. Even though Nicky has firmly established and improved her lovely, welcoming coffee shop The Witches Brew (Woman In Total Charge of Herself) in Bristol and I have conquered my fear of flying and taught in Sweden and Ireland this year, both of us were champing at the bit and feeling that we hadn't done enough. There was something that needed to be done and we weren't sure exactly what.
I'm sure many readers know what I'm saying.
We started off joking around trying to cheer each other up in a conversation that went something like:
"I'm fed up I haven't achieved much this year"
(Pause for nice comments about wonderful coffee shop)
"We should do something Deb"
"Ok, I have an idea, let's pencil 'Do Something'" into our diaries for next year.
(Pause for two Guides to pull disapproving faces)
Then it occurred to one of us, why don't we go out on the road and just Do Something! We're always trying to encourage people to get out there and try something, anything, if they want to change their lives. Why didn't we do just that.
So we asked the lovely Louise from Limepark Studios to design us a logo and set up our first event.
As always we tuned into the room when the audience arrived and then started talking, we work together organically very well and whilst one is talking the other one will be picking out important points and noting them on a flip chart, then taking those points forward.
We had a great evening and I can honestly say that it was wonderful to just be 'doing something'. We also realised that in standing on a stage, tuning into the audience and working with them we were really walking out talk. This tour will grow, change, develop and improve every time we set foot in a hall or on a stage, and we have no idea what the end result will be. We are literally just Doing Something! and our audience can see that.
We don't stand up there as world experts on being happy, we stand up there as two people who have learned a lot through our formative years in the Spiritual field, and through our work in the last 17 years or so, and we want to share that with anyone who might need help, inspiration, or just someone who knows how they feel.
It's a wonderful privilege and opportunity, but have I told you exactly what Do Something! is all about? Of course not, because it will be different every time you see us.
Please feel free to share this blog, we appreciate all the help and support we can get at the moment, and we are being blessed with so much support we KNOW this is right.
Our next events are in Thornbury in Bristol, then two more in the Bristol area and Covent Garden in London, and we haven't started planning let.
We're on the wonderful UKPN Radio on Sunday, which should be a riot if the guys are in their usual top form. See our Facebook Page for details. http://www.facebook.com/DebAndNickysDoSomethingTour
It's very exciting and two months ago we couldn't have imagined this, which is why Do Something! is a good idea in every sense of the world.
Look forward to meeting you one day.
Wishing you happy days, peaceful nights, and the inspiration to change your lives
