Back to Basics

Some people will continue to distract, numb out and disconnect. There is no shame in this response. It is a natural response to a threat. In many cases the threat to our safety is quite real.

On the other hand, I believe humanity (and our earth home) is in the middle of the most growth and expansion we’ve seen in at least a century.

Student of Surrender

Wisdom and learning are fun for me and keep life interesting. For the most part, I haven’t been too resentful about all the “schooling” that life has required of me. Considering the number of hard knocks that I took, I feel I’m pretty open to growing into my full potential throughout the rest of my life.

Get in the Van

Looking back, I believe that our friendship was a huge factor in the desire to change. I never had a friend like Karen. She runs a very successful business, is an author, runs upwards of 20 races per year, has a family, travels around the world speaking and inspiring women to participate in STEM careers.
