I’m going to do a recap of last week, since I missed last weeks posts, but I’m going to wait and do it tomorrow.
Because I’m REALLY excited to share this and I wanted to get it out to the public.
My girlfriend Angela Harris, created Work Of Heart in order to help and inspire people. This is a business about empowering people and helping people become motivated to live their best lives and be their best selves. She does wellness events, workshops, has an online group, and does the yearly Work of Heart event where she has several speakers come in to discuss different topics. It is healing, life-changing, empowering and uplifting. It really was THE event that propelled me forward into creating THIS BLOG.
I attended last year because a girlfriend of mine, Stephanie Johnston of The Goddess Gatherings, was a speaker. And I left feeling so positive and motivated. I took journalism in high school and even though I teach English, I MISSED writing in a creative way, and journaling by hand was cumbersome; so I usually stopped after a month or so.
This event inspired me to begin this blog in order to write more, and I’ve really been enjoying it.
So, I’m going again this year.
BUUUUUUUT, this year, my HUSBAND is a GUEST SPEAKER at the event!!!! And even though he forgot to tell me and I only found out recently, I’m super pumped about this. I know I’m biased, but I think he’s a pretty amazing guy, with a pretty amazing story to share. He’s not shy, but has always been hesitant about thinking he can HELP people by sharing his story. But recently, with his new job, he’s realized that he can, and has, and is becoming more open and confident about this.
This is the write up that Ange put up about him:
Matt Kinnie was an avid outdoorsman, adventure seeker, and engineering student at UNB when in 2005 he had a rock climbing accident that left him paralyzed from the chest down and with reduced hand and arm function.
Lucky to be alive, Matt had to accept the changes in his life and learn how to navigate the world from a wheelchair. After several years of not quite feeling like himself and struggling with poor mental health, Matt turned to wheelchair sports to help him get healthy and regain the confidence he lost with his injury. With the support of friends and family, Matt was able to get back to living life to the fullest, and now he helps others by sharing his story about his journey to thriving once again. Matt now competes internationally in handcycling, with hopes of qualifying for the 2020 Paralympics. He is also the president of Parasport New Brunswick, where he is passionate about helping others with mobility impairments to get involved in parasport.
We are beyond excited (but perhaps not quite as excited as Matt’s wife Melanie Kinnie) to have Matt as a speaker at Work of Heart 2019! Less than a month to go until our amazing event! ❤️
And she’s announced some of the other speakers and I’m pretty pumped about them:
And the Master of Energy:
And last year there was AMAZING, delicious and healthy snacks and an energizer shot that was incredible.
