Happy New Year to the peacemakers in our global, mindful, living community.  

When we last connected around the New Year, we were speaking about setting powerful intentions to have peace and success in our minds, health, and lives at the start of 2017.  

Ten days into the New Year, how is that coming along for you?

Last Tuesday, my business year started, and I felt like a bullet-speed train ready to derail if one more task got added to my to-do list in Asana.  As I boarded a plane for San Francisco Thursday, I pondered - what does it take to hold on to inner peace once we get a glimpse?

My opening and closing statements of every lecture are:

“Your mind is strong medicine, choose a positive thought.”  

This meme is the most retweeted, shared, and favorite quote on social media every month.
This is the motto I personally live by, the motto by which I run my business, and the intention that carries me through healing my clients.
