...choose wisely

Kathy talks about the wonderful gift of choice, recognizing opportunities, and making wise choices. By opening your eyes to the opportunities presented in your life, and making the choice to become empowered to make decisions, when the choices are presented. Kathy notes that 90% of the negativity in our lives, is directly created by negative choices we make. Kathy’s message shows us how to accept the gift of choice, and how to choose wisely. Her unique perspective will have you counting your blessings on a regular basis!

Choice is a gift; the gift of freewill. Kathy was in a terrible accident when she was just out of highschool. While she was sunbathing on a beech a lifeguard ran her over in their Jeep. Kathy was severly injured, as the Jeep ran over her face and chest; she was pronounced dead.

That day, laying on the beech, Kathy was given the gift of choice. After being run over she made the choice to fight for her life, and live her life to the fullest. You can choose to live your life in a way that makes you happy, and choose to live your life in a way that supports and inspires others.

“"I cannot tell you how excited we are - it is insane. You are without a doubt one of the best I have ever seen, and I am 57 years old, and have taught for 31 years and gone to tons of leadership conferences, events, etc. You stand out like a beacon of light. How can I thank you enough? Your speech today was absolutely the highlight of the conference. You could see by the multiple standing ovations that we were all, students and adults, moved by your words that touched all of us. Your message was powerful and wonderful. All students should hear your message of love of others and seeing their beautiful souls. And loving oneself, because without that, there is no loving others. Your wisdom is astounding - what a gift you have for the secret of living a beautiful life. You fulfilled every dream of mine. You were the number-one hit of the conference, beyond a shadow of a doubt. Every parent I have talked to, every student I have chatted with - the first thing they loved about CSLC was YOU. You touched the lives of 850 students and 250 teachers. You have a gift of connecting in such a personal way, so that each person feels the message was for them. The messages you give are so beautiful, it makes me wish I could just have you reach every student in every province and state. Your message of love and understanding is universal and the way you share your stories is real, personal and beautiful. There was not a dry eye in the house, and at the same time, I saw laughter on the faces of everyone. That is what struck me when I saw you in Reno at CADA (the California Activity Directors Association). I knew you were a special and magical person who has a soul that is what all of us need to strive to achieve. I really don't know how to thank you enough. CSLC 2015 will always be associated first and foremost with Kathy Buckley, and that will make me proud and happy for years to come. Thank you for your generosity as well Kathy. Heavens, you really live the conference theme: When giving is receiving. What you put out into the universe truly makes the world a better place. If we could only clone someone as special, smart, empathetic, giving, energetic, witty, loving, entertaining and beautiful as you - the world would be an even more amazing place. You have a special vision and instinct that you learned all by yourself. You really are a genius, and a kind, sweet genius at that! Sending you the world's biggest hug. I will never find the words to thank you enough for the gift you gave to the conference and to me. You are the best."”
