A few years ago I did an exercise with @jackcanfield_official where I was asked, "what do you want" over and over again.
At first I said things like a beautiful view, solid and strong relationships, abundant income so I can live and give freely.
Eventually new things were stirred up for me and I said, "i want to create a scholarship at @gvsu and pay it forward, just like my grandma did for me." A new dream was born.
I thought, "someday it will be cool to do that"... Someday... As soon as I thought, "someday," a voice in my heart said, "how about now?!" So I said yes.
I called Grand Valley and asked to learn more about how to go about doing this. I had no idea how to create a scholarship, how it worked, or even how much it would be.
And guess what, I started one!
3 years ago the VIP Walsh scholarship was born - and it has been so rewarding!
Not only have I gotten to meet the students who have been blessed by this scholarship... But now we are invited to super special fun GVSU events!
Last night I took my mom to a black tie event at Devos Performance Hall to honor and celebrate President Lubbers 36 years in leadership at the school.
This event was so special. 😍
I laughed, I cried, I met some amazing people and learned a bit more about how to leave a legacy by President Lubbers example.
I never expected to receive blessings by starting this scholarship. I just thought I was giving one.
What about you?
What dreams have been stirred up for you? And instead of saying, "someday" listen to that still small voice that says, "what about now?!"
