I enjoy spending time with family, in nature, enjoy life simple pleasures, reading, traveling, shopping, dining, and theater.
I wanted to help other open their ability go give and receive love. I want to help others feel better about themselves and spread more love.
I relax and meditate, be mindful, and practice affirmations.
The Alchemist because it reminds me that I must follow my path and that if I want it bad enough the universe will conspire to make it happen.
I like heart to heart day centers. I appreciate the way the staff goes above and beyond to reduce isolation and create community for elders. They made me want to attend to be a part of some of the activities. The members are the ones who sole me on how wonderful of a place it was.
I get enough sleep, I take time to be mindful, I get fresh air, and I have positive self-talk.
I have two small dogs and a cat. My youngest dog is a 9-month-old puppy, he pretends to be mighty but is super scared of everything. We were playing with his ball and an ambulance drives by. He dropped his ball and ran because I thought he was scared but he started howling with the siren.
