Destiny has infinite possibility.

Do you grow more and more in love with what you do? How do you rein-vision your dharma (life's passion) in such a way that it becomes not only become reality but is woven throughout your life? I'm fascinated by people, women in particular, that after mid-life (think Julia Childs, Elizabeth Gilbert in Eat, Pray, Love...), are able to move beyond the drama of what has been their life and move into the "second act" of life. Inspiring stories are everywhere, and I believe there is one in all of us. Am I willing to have faith in my own abilities to look at what feels like very real obstacles and know that there is a way over, under, through, or even crush it?


You are what your deep, driving desire is.
As your desire is, so is your will.
As your will is, so is your deed.
As your deed is, so is your destiny.
Brihadaranyaka Upanishad


It is so much easier to take the path of least resistance rather than risk uncertainty or rejection. Not everyone loves what I do (hard to believe, I know! ; ), and it's easy to get discouraged by that one or two bits of negative feedback. Rather than dwelling and spending precious energy on the past, I can press on. I can reinvent. Understanding that this life moves faster than a wildfire going uphill, and I'm here to experience LIFE fully while I'm passing through.

Destiny has infinite possibility.
