This week I had the opportunity to attend Arianna Huffington’s event Thrive! in NYC. It was such a treat. And even better – I was put on the guest list and was able to bring my love with me.
Wow, what an incredible time!
It’s funny how things manifest so easily once you put the intention out there. You see, I heard about the Third Metric Live Event a while ago and put it in my google calendar. I blocked out the dates and didn’t make any other plans then.
But as the event came closer, I still hadn’t bought a ticket. What was I waiting for?
The event prices were high – but I could afford them. Somehow I just ‘knew’ I would be there. I even had the opportunity to do a VIP day with one of my business coaches that same day, but instead, ended up choosing not to.
Then I got an email invitation to join Thrive! the week before the event.
And when I replied, someone at the Huffington Post told me he’d be happy to have me and my +1 as Arianna’s guests. Amazing!
So.. what’s the point of this?
Here’s some wisdom you can take away:
- Trust your inner knowing.
- Schedule your dreams – no matter how big or small. Make them real and don’t plan other things for that time because you’re so sure that what you want IS happening.
- Leave room for miracles. They always happen. You just need to pay attention to the opportunities.
- Take action. (I replied to the email.)
- Ask. (Not only did I reply, but I also asked if I could bring someone. If I hadn’t asked, I wouldn’t have. But instead, I got to spend the 2 days being inspired WITH my love.)
Okay – so there were a HOST of amazing expert speakers that day from Julianne Moore, Dr. Dean Ornish, Kenneth Cole, and Penache Desai, to Alanis Morissette. And since you most likely weren’t there, I thought I’d share my favorite highlights and wisdom with you!
Think ALL ACCESS VIP Pass without having to leave the comfort of your own home!
The event was also in celebration of Arianna’s new book, Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-being, Wisdom, and Wonder.
The following are short nuggets of wisdom from the event.

Jon went on to say that at retreats he hosts, they put a clock in the room , but all that it ever says is “now”. So When people check the time they say, “Oh my god, it’s now again!”
Jon Kabat-Zinn also said that just 7 combined hours of meditation can literally change the structure of your brain. So start practicing! But in case you don’t have a seated practice just yet, he also said this:
I learned that Arianna’s gratitude practice includes a ’10 finger’ exercise at night. She names 10 things she’s grateful for that day.
Arianna said something about Inner Wisdom that truly struck me with Manifestation. She said, what you want is already inside us. I couldn’t agree more!
