The gift of love imprints us like nothing else.
It makes us stronger when we let it. It allows us to explore who we are and gives us the strength to be who we can become. When we love unconditionally, we are at risk. Love and loss live in the same place and we get one with the […]

So often in life we are drawn into what is next on our never-ending To Do List verses what is most important.

Many of us have become such extraordinary fire fighters (reactive focus) that we have lost our way with fire prevention (proactive focus). If it’s on fire, we tend to run towards it and we can […]
