The Art of Loving Your Life

is to fearlessly rediscover yourself

 Embrace change—in fact, welcome it–welcome it to the point of excitement


What new thing can I learn?

In what new ways can I apply what I know?

What emotional junk can I release to allow room for more delightful discoveries?

What hidden talents do I possess?


  • How deep is my love?
  • How wide is my soul?
  • How broad is my vision?


This and a pot of tea…
