I contemplate death daily. It is one of my greatest inspirations for living my life fully and with courage.

The Stories We Tell

We are all made of stories. The stories we tell ourselves, the stories we tell others, and the stories of memory that get altered over time—deepening grooves in our psyche and transforming our personality.

I’m Back with my Be The Light Podcast!

...And I'm raw, vulnerable and apparently have a potty mouth sometimes (so, put on some headphones if you've got little one's around).   I speak from my heart with full transparency here and I'm going to keep showing up in this way on this podcast.   This come-back-podcast was totally spontaneous and inspired.
