I didn’t used to like myself very much. I’d spent many years in a bad abusive marriage and had come to believe the lies that the man I was married to told me. You couldn’t tell from looking at me but I was really really disconnected from the light and lovely spiritual person that lay dormant within me.  And the kicker is I tried to convince myself that the life I was living was exactly where I was meant to be.

Why bring this up now?

I have been presented with a challenge, through my networking coaching partners to begin to develop my personal story so that I might incorporate it into the business model for my yoga company. Now, I need to be clear here, even though there are elements of my story of transformation that are extremely sad, the present moment is far from that. It has  always felt to me as if it were a story of triumph in spite of a lot of  adversity . And I’m grateful for the entire experience, but I’m not sure how to share it.

So I’m just going to begin, right where I am, dive into the deep end and, with sensitivity, open up and present.

I’m afraid of this one, but I believe it is right. So I’m going to feel the fear and do it anyway.

Sometimes it’s blind faith that propels me forward.


Stay tuned.

And as always, thanks for the fabulous support.

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
