Lesson #27 - "Once you make you a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen"

Posted by Maryam Garba on

"Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen" - Ralph Waldo Emerson. Two weeks ago after chatting with my friend Lakisa Ballard, I got the idea to run the Chicago Half Marathon to help raise money for her non-profit, The Imani Children's Literacy Foundation. I wasn't sure if anyone would give money to this cause but I decided to create a fundraising page anyways and ask my friends and family for donations before I had time to talk myself out of the idea. In addition to this, I started half-marathon training right away. Today, we got the first donation to the running cause from my California Mother, Mama Joan! and now we're 8.2% of the way to reaching the $1000 fundraising goal!! Such a reminder to act swiftly on your God-given ideas before fear snatches them away from you! Support the Imani Children's with me by clicking on this link to give to the campaign Thanks again Mama Joan for being the first donor!!! Whoop whoop!!

Here's a picture of me and Mama Joan!
