I Am What I Choose to Become

I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become.” Carl Jung

Typically, I like to give the platform for sharing wisdom to the voices of women, but I’ve been chewing on the idea for a while now about how to tell some of my own stories, or even why to tell them, so this thought by Carl Jung jumped out to me, resonating with where I am in own musings about telling stories.

I’ve been told that I’m a “private person.” Seriously, I’m not sure quite what this means. From what I’ve observed, most humans are “private” about sharing personal and vulnerable things about themselves and I wonder, does being “private” make me less relatable? If instead I share my moments of connection rather than stories of pain and triumph, will you still feel an understanding and connection with me?

Walking as Leader

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the meaning of leadership. Remembering back to the 2017 fires in north California when my mother got evacuated and came to live with me; while feeling like we were also on the verge of being evacuated, I felt afraid and wanting up to date, clear information. I found the Sonoma Sheriff on facebook. As a collective group of leaders from different departments including, CalFire, CHP, Sonoma Sheriff (to name a few), they gave updates 2x daily, each person in turn reporting on what they knew and what was being done. I felt comforted by clear, opinion free, drama free information.

What does it mean to be a leader?

I Rescued a Worm Today. Or Did I?

I rescued a worm today. Or did I?

Walking along, a movement catches my eye as a big fat morsel of a worm is worming its way across the sandy, dry path. Giving itself what looked like a scrumptious dirt bath.

Stopping to watch, my lips feel slightly parched as I watch this little worm surely drying out right before my eyes. It needs water, it needs help! So of course, I say, “Come with me little worm,” as I pick it up and lay it in the luscious green moist grass, thinking this would be the perfect spot for a wee bit of R&R and resuscitation. But still, it doesn’t move. Did I do the right thing?

The Extraordinary You

How do you stay true to your intentions, your vision and your feminine self as you navigate your path, build genuine partnership and create balance within the world of life and work?

Walking and nature will support you in unearthing and igniting a deeper sense of passion, clarity and connection with who you are in the world.

Walking is your outdoors guide to re-imagining your path while uniting self, nature, joy and the wonderful women in your life. Immersing into the collective wisdom of women, you can explore a bigger version of the extraordinary you. Think of nature as your facilitator of discovering moments.
