About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be the Change. Live, Create, Laugh, Love, Grow...

ABOUT ME

Dance like no one is watching, sing like no one is listening, love like you have never been hurt, live like its heaven on earth.

PHILOSOPHY

LOVE!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other

people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

—Marianne Williamson

One Amazing Thing I've Done

White Water Rafting in Zambia

Teach, Learn, Share

"If someone says we are just romantics, inveterate idealists, thinking the impossible, that the masses of people cannot be turned into almost perfect human beings, we have to answer a thousand and one times: Yes, it can be done; we are right. The people as a whole can advance. Improving ourselves as a whole, as we do as individuals daily. We have to work every day, work in the inner sense of improving ourselves, of gaining knowledge, and understanding about the world around us, of inquiring, and finding out, and knowing why things are the way they are and always considering humanities great problems as our own. I have to tell you honestly that we have to make a bigger, greater effort, repeatedly, to move ahead, to meet the goals we ourselves set of being the best, of aspiring to be the best, because it hurts us to be anything less."

-Che Guevara
