Hi! Thanks for stopping by. I created this website to openly share what I've learned from my lifelong quest to uncover the best version of me. All that's here comes from searching, researching and experimenting.

Honestly, I've spent more hours than I want to admit in pursuit of finding the real me. Funny thing, though, she's been here the whole time. Yeh, imagine my surprise. But I get it, it's hard to see when you're not sure where to look.

The real me happened to be buried under multiple layers of protective armor and other fun obstructions like confusion, anxiety and tension, but her kind, compassionate nature is taking over now, warming my heart and easing my mind.

I remember this whole quest thing started because of some strange moment in childhood. One moment my focus changed. Something shifted spontaneously. Can't say much more but it felt like something had gone wrong or was wrong. I seemed to have lost something but nobody else seemed bothered by what had happened to me. A fire was lit deep inside me that day and I wasn't going to stop until I found what I was looking for.

My heroine's journey began.

Now, don't get me wrong, this isn't all I've done in life. A heroine needs to eat and provide for her family, too. But as I look back through all the twists and turns, I'm blessed to have had quite the adventure.

And, for whatever reason, I've always had just enough resources to complete each phase. The right resources and people seemed to show up, just when I needed them. It's been the oddest and most spectacular thing. All I can think to call it is grace.

These words are nudged by grace, too, as if just maybe it offers me up to be of service like all those I've met along the way. If that's the case, I look forward to it. To meeting other heroes and heroines out there who have traveled far and wide in search of your truth. Truth is, you're amazing.

Because I know the journey's lonely sometimes, maybe some of what is posted here can help keep you company during the long days and restless nights.

And, if you're ever in need of a bit more direction or some mindfulness insight, give me a shout from whatever mountain top or valley you're currently visiting.
