What do I do best?
I am a fantastic story teller! I have been in love with stories (both telling and writing) my entire life and I have found a way to weave wisdom and magic into true life stories that inspire people in lots of good ways.
What makes me the best version of myself?
I have learned to hear the word NO in a positive way. When someone or something says no to me, I take it to mean either No, not right now, or No it’s not in my best interest, or most of the time, No just means I haven’t found the right way to ask for what I need (yet!)
My motto is “everyone always says YES to me!”
What are my aspirations?
I don’t have much ambition any more but I do aspire to continue to lead a happy, healthy, fun, prosperous and exciting life with my beloved soulmate, Brian.
My Biggest Success?
It would be hard to just chose one but I would say that learning how to be happy, in spite of whatever circumstances are thrown my way is my greatest success. As a child and young adult I suffered from severe depression and at times was suicidal. At the age of 28 I decided that I was going to figure out how to be happy. It required a lot of emotional work with therapists as well as exercise, eating right for my system, and creating my own “spiritual tool kit” of techniques to manage my emotions. I am living proof that happiness is a learned behavior.
My Most Challenging Moment?
I went through a long period (more than a year) where I was heart broken, lost my core business, very ill and nearly broke.
I managed to survive and ultimately all of it led me to a new career, which created happiness, satisfaction, success, love and prosperity. I see now that this devastation was necessary for my ultimate growth and in retrospect, I would not change a moment of it, in spite of the pain and suffering I went through.
It’s a both/and world. Life is both the way you say it is and the way I say it is.
My Favorite People/Role Models?
Hands down my husband/soulmate is my favorite person in the Universe. He is my best friend, partner, lover, safe place to land and the most fascinating person I have ever met. He teaches me everyday how to be a more loving, kind and compassionate person. I am also a huge fan of Warren Buffet and Barack and Michelle Obama.
My Favorite Places/Destinations?
I love to travel, especially to India. I have seen many parts of it during my seven visits and I just love it. I am also a devotee of Italy and try to go at least once a year. And, then there is Bali. All three of these places are heaven on earth for me.
My Favorite Products/Objects?
My cats, smart phone, iPad, computer, and I am crazy about reading books and coloring books!
My Current Passions?
I am passionate about helping people find love and keep love, long aromatherapy baths (at last one a day), foot rubs and food. I am teaching myself how to cook!
