Time to meditate, move and to feel my wild heart beating. Let me remember to acknowledge that this day is another chance to create something valuable for the world.   Let me take all of my […]

This morning I imagined what the 80 year old version of myself would tell me, if I asked her, “What do I do now?” “What should I focus on?” What wisdom would she have, nearing the end of her life?

Use my creativity […]

Our motives are goal directed activities that energize and direct our behavior. Our motives support what we do, how we behave and what we put forth in the world. Sometimes our motives are simply the presentation of how we hope the world perceives us. Powerful . . Intelligent . . Foxy. . . Strong. . . Compassionate . . .

How will I use it?  What I choose to think about today will make me and much around me, […]

Because life would seem vacuous with anything less. It is important for me to feel connected, relevant, needed and valuable. Why am I  driven to understand where the world is headed? Because standing in the dark seems like such a frightening place to hide. It seems to […]
