Influential confidence is a combination of grounded-in-calm purpose and conscious authenticity, out loud, in-the-moment, when the moment presents itself, you’re awake to it, and you were born to heal the world. 
And I’m saying it’s a sign of enlightenment. It’s a final knowing. Something you can’t run away from. 
“Damn Laura, what’s up this Friday morning, like what alien visited you in your dreams last night and put the word-juju in your ear and had you wanting to talk about something as powerful as influential confidence?” 

My voice is strong this morning. I call her Martha. 

This is my life right now.  And if it turns you on, it can be yours. 
I’d like to tell you a little story of a woman who met Carlos Santana in a grocery store. You know Carlos right, the rockstar legend? Okay, just checking that my millennials have clicked off by now. (Just kidding, I love you guys…but if you don’t know who Carlos Santana is, we need to talk)
I did wake up with words coming this morning. Today they were in the form of a poem, a story about this woman. Maybe you know her?
A know a woman who’s arrived in her skin
a talented
ferociously beautiful
intelligent woman
who’s finally recovered her worth
and knows who she is
This woman enjoyed
a simple moment
with a rockstar
in a grocery store.
You know
one of those normal moments
As she stepped up to him
in all her fierce calm
and grace
she gave him a gift
which he received
with his hands on his heart
Before she left 
she looked up to his eyes

as his head lifted from a bow
and saw herself
a rockstar
a legend…an artist…a healer
She knew right then
all she was
all she was meant to be
all she was born for…
that the gift she gave was her
and it was time to spread it like wildfire…
…The world would never be the same.
This is you. 
Can you feel her? 
What moments will you wake up to today? 
What moments will you allow to be your arrival into the skin, woman, and purpose you were born for? 
I can’t wait to hear about it! Why don’t you be brave and tell us something about this in the comments? Help us find our rockstar.
