I'm so happy that you are here. It's good to connect through the inter-web and learn more about all there is.
So you are here because you want to know more about ME. I'm just like you, a human being living and breathing here and now. Talking about myself seems to allude me. I'll do my best...
I've practiced mind body exercises most of my life. Even when I was a young'n, I experimented with breath practices to control metabolism and techniques just to freak my brother out that I've come to learn are quite advanced yogic techniques.
Through my walk of life I have met many obstacles that have reminded me just how grateful I am to be alive. I've experienced bottomless lows. I've survived great suffering and disease. I've learned to appreciate the simplest of things.
Through it all I've learned resilience. I know how to see the silver lining, how to make something amazing out of nothing at all, how to turn things around when they are headed in opposition of my highest and best good. I've learned what my priorities are and how to live my life in joy and peace.
I go deep into the twists and turns of life and continue to show up for myself, in honesty, forgiveness, gratitude, apology, and love. Through it all, I realize the potential I have to influence others to live with no regrets, to make amends now, to take a chance, to trust the process, be patient, rest whenever possible, especially under a shady tree or a star lit night, and stay true to self, in love and light.
