Madi Still, the woman behind Still PREP’n 24/7, started her journey into discovering her power nearly a decade ago when she survived the death of her two-day old son, Noah. For one year, she struggled with overwhelming grief, until one day she chose to persist past pain and discover her purpose and passion. She knew that only by doing so would she truly bring honor to her son’s life. Since tapping into her life’s mission to Positively Restore and Empower People (PREP), she has gone on to lead hundreds of others to do the same. Former public school teacher turned full-time “MomPreneur”, Madi combines her passion for teaching with her desire to be a force for positive change in the world by forging empowering relationships with countless other like-minded people. She is an advocate for health on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. She shares her journey and tips on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle on her weekly vlogs, blog articles, speaking engagements, and social media. Her Mondays with Madi episodes, which air weekly on her YouTube channel called Madi TV, are the highlight of her fast growing fan following and subscriber base. Her deepest desire is to positively impact as many lives as possible.

My TEDx Experience: A Reflection

In the fairy tale, Cinderella, the clock chimes midnight. Her chariot turns back into a pumpkin. Her clothes become a disheveled mess, a stark contrast from the glorious ballgown she wore while dancing with the prince. All she has left are memories of the best night of her life.

I do not live in a pumpkin. I do not own disheveled clothes. I am still living my “happily ever after” complete with the prince; however the morning after my TEDx talk, I could relate to Cinderella. The magic of the night was gone, leaving a melancholy feeling in my spirit for at least one brief moment. A single glass slipper tucked away in my pocket, the memory of the magic tucked inside my heart. Then I began to reflect and smiled.

I knew that I was chosen to share the most powerful story of my life. What I did not know was how that story would creep back into my heart and peek inside my soul from deep crevices I thought were hidden. I forgot the pain of losing my first-born son. I forgot the darkness. I forgot the intense grieving. Reliving those intimate scenes reconnected me to my story – and my son – in a very powerful way for which I’m truly grateful.

It feels now as though my son has been reborn with renewed purpose. I expected to feel fulfilled in sharing his story, but I did not expect to feel such immense pride. I’m proud that I was chosen to be his mother. He died ten years ago and yet he continues to live on through his story. His purpose touches the lives of countless people grappling with their own pain. How did I get so lucky to be chosen as the communicator for his life?

Weeks leading up to the talk, I felt very much “over it.” I was just about one week out from presenting and sleep evaded me. 3:00 A.M. became my wake-up call, and I would lie in bed repeating and reviewing my talk no less than three times every single night. I would make minor changes, obsess over minutiae, then remind myself that I was chosen for a reason.

On Halloween, I took my son trick-or-treating with a knot in my stomach. I was honestly more nervous about rehearsals the next day than I was about the event itself. I was extremely anxious to present in front of the other speakers. If they heard my story in rehearsals, how would the story continue to impact them the day of when it had to count? I honestly resisted the idea, until rehearsals actually came.

Once I entered the auditorium, I saw the stage and oh, what a stage it was. It was not like the stages I’m familiar with. It was a global stage, and my excitement began to rise. The feelings of anticipation and even relief escalated when a few of the speakers “choked.” I thought, “Wow. As established as these leaders are in world, they are just like me: nervous.” I also truly appreciated the amazing coaching I heard from each speaker. I found it incredibly valuable and as each speaker presented, our group grew closer. We bonded through our stories, our nerves, and our need to be connected. Hugs were exchanged, along with tears, and heartfelt praise. Honestly, rehearsal day solidified my love for the TEDx journey and crew.

Many of the speakers in our group mentioned that they got no sleep the night before the main event; I on the other hand slept soundly. Perhaps it was the eight-hour rehearsal day. Or maybe it was the very personal hour I spent sitting inside the window frame in my hotel room in prayer. Either way, I felt as though I was truly ready.

The day was, for lack of a better word, magical. From the emotional highs and lows of each speaker, to the praise I received from the audience in a resounding standing ovation, I felt as though this “bucket list day” was everything I had hoped for and so much more.

All 36 speakers are now connected by our stories, our desire to succeed, and our experience of sharing the honor and privilege of standing on that red carpet. I can truly say I will never forget the way the rug felt under my multi-colored flats, nor the way I felt wiping away tears as I sat in the audience, listening to so many powerful talks. I  will never forget the kindness of the TEDx tribe, nor will I forget feeling a part of something far bigger than myself.

If I can impart any wisdom to someone wanting to share their own story on the TEDx platform, it would be to embrace their vulnerability. Something happened to me as I allowed my own story to touch me once again to my very core and I allowed those emotions to reverberate of the walls of an auditorium and into the souls of the audience. Let go, is what I would say to future TEDx speakers. Let go and be free.

TEDx was created in 2009 in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading.” It supports independent organizers who want to create a TED-like event in their own community. The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like
experiences.

At TEDx events, a combination of live presenters and TED Talk videos spark deep conversation and connections at the local level. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, under a license granted by TED.

Over the years, TEDx events have evolved into microcosms of their local community, each event piecing together its own brand and identity.

Since 2009, more than 50,000 people have shared their ideas on TEDx stages in nearly 180 countries. The ideas are shared on a special YouTube site as well. Since 2009, more than one billion people have viewed TEDx talks.

Over the years, TEDxWilmington, has grown, over the years, from one annual event to seven events in 2016 including the annual TEDxWilmington Conference and six separate TEDxWilmingtonSalons. All TEDxWilmington events in 2016 are produced by Magic Dust, LLC, under the direction of Ajit Mathew George who serves as the Executive Producer and sprinkles magic dust to make sure each event is very special. Over 50 people have volunteered to be part of the 2016 TEDxWilmington Tribe. We invite creators, catalysts, entrepreneurs, artists, technologists, designers, scientists, thinkers and doers to share at this all day conference what they are most passionate about – positive ideas for the world and Delaware. See All Speakers.

Ajit George was granted the TEDx license in the fall of 2011 to organize the very first TEDxWilmington on August 9, 2012 at the Delaware Art Museum. TEDxWilmington 2013 was held on August 8 with a full-day program at World Cafe Live at the Queen.

TEDxWilmington 2014 and TEDXWilmington 2015 were both a full day of programming on August 6, 2014 and October 28, 2015 at the World Cafe Live at the Queen. Between 2014 and 2015, we organized three TEDxWilmington Salons, the first of which was held on November 19, 2014 at OperaDelaware and the second one on March 13, 2015 at Winterthur Museum Gallery. The third TEDxWilmington Salon was held on July 31st at Baylor Women’s Correctional InstitutionMore about TEDxWilmington Salons.

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world. TED is owned by a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation. TED’s agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation.

TEDxWilmington is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. TED believes passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. TED.com is building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world’s most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long.

Just Jump

Personal Development:

Today was a day I can be proud of. For the first time since starting crossfit over 2 years ago, I did a box jump.

Now I know what some of you are thinking: “what’s the big deal?” Fear is a funny thing. One time, long ago, Derick challenged me to doing a box jump on to the arm of the couch (welcome to my crazy marriage lol.) Not only did I skim the arm however, I actually fell! I landed right on my back and it knocked the wind out of me. Of course we laughed, but right in that moment I told myself a story: “box jumps are not for me.”

Today, I held my coach’s hands and jumped on to an 18 inch box. After three times of that, I felt confident to jump ALONE. Then, I jumped in our entire workout of the day (WOD). I did 8 box jumps each round for 4 rounds.

We all have something that holds us back from being better. For me, it was jumping on a stupid box that was quite stable, but seemed impossible. What are you avoiding jumping? What scares you?

Today, I encourage you to JUMP! Go all in and get ready for your breakthrough.

In this week’s news:

I’m LOVING The new collagen booster. I now see a difference in cellulite (finally) and I just love the taste. I do this with beverage mix, tea, and aloe and it’s my favorite thing to drink 2-3x a day.
