Dare to Dream

I am sitting in a self-development workshop. The year is 1989 and I am 52 years old. The leader asks us to think of three things we’d love to do before we die and likely never will. My “Bucket List”… climb Kilimanjaro, climb the Matterhorn and see Everest Base Camp. What, I’m not a climber? Little did I know where those wishes would take me. Fast forward to May 22, 2007.

Stopping the War Against Yourself

On a daily basis, I pause, put my hand on my chest and whisper, “I will not make war against my own heart.” I have many opportunities to practice, as I make many mistakes.
