We lead our lives every day. We make many choices and decisions from the seemingly simple – without thought or question – to many, often complex, with longer term implications. Some of these decisions require us to be deeper in thought as well as reflection. Sometimes, in the process of discernment, we may even begin to question long held values and beliefs.
I learned early on, as a leader in public service, leading others included meeting individuals where they were and building empowering relationships. Leaders are not born or made; and being ourselves – as the leaders we are – is not about a title or hierarchical position. Leaders simply are. We are, each and every one of us, leaders.
Getting to know ourselves – by being curious enough about life and how we live it – we begin to uncover the deep wisdom that is, and always has been, within each of us. Knowing ourselves and questioning our thoughts and beliefs about anything can open the door to making decisions more easily and with deeper awareness and confidence.
My heartfelt desire is to inspire others to live a life that is free, open and enjoyable. I invite you to be a part of the conversation.
Please consider taking some time to browse this site. From the Blog to the beautiful Images to the Drops of Wisdom, there is much to see.
In addition, I am an observer and deep listener. I assist clients in the discovery or rediscovery of aspects of themselves they may have forgotten; and which can facilitate their stepping into a new way of being…within and without. Consider stopping by the Compassionate Listening page to learn more.
And of course, please engage. Comments are welcome. Conversations offer us a different perspective which can open our hearts to something within that is awaiting our remembering. If you wish to reach out to me, please see the Contact page.
