Here We Are!

Greetings my dear friends! Thank you for joining me on life's beautiful journey. For my first post, I am following some good advice from a friend: keep it simple. (But be sure to stay tuned for mind-blowing future entries!)

My story is as "simple" as yours...wink, wink! Of course we all have a story of how we got to here. You know, it's the not-so-brief rundown of where we grew up, our family structure and early school experiences, dreams and hobbies, academic pursuits, the many turns we have taken through various careers, cities, circles, and where we are headed next. But this isn't speed-dating, so though you may certainly glean these bits and pieces over time, what's most important right now is what's happening right now!

I believe that the health of our existence in this lifetime is precious and must be nurtured throughout the growth process. At every step of the way, we can offer love, compassion, and grace to ourselves and those around us. Inner peace, brought about through healthy mind, body and soul, influences outer beauty and bounty in our world. So be kind to yourself and others. It's the first step.
