My Path...

One of the most important lessons I've learned in my lifetime is to pay attention. Another lesson, and just as important, is to get to know the people around me.

So, two women are sitting at a bar... just kidding, kinda.

I was sitting at one of my favorite bars, Nick's in Laguna Beach, and there was a woman sitting next to me reading. Remembering that ever important rule 'get to know the people around me', I introduced myself, asked what she was reading and was presented with a wonderful gift, 'The Artist's Way' by Julia Cameron. This is a powerful, powerful book to help you unleash those creative juices.

Every sentence in this book is a lesson, but one in particular told me to 'explore the things that interests me'. How many times had I said to myself, my friends, that I would love to take up photography. Once I read this particular note, I couldn't just keep saying it. Well, I guess I could but I was already having that experience. My whole purpose for reading this book was to UNLEASH HER! I had a camera, all that was left to do was point and shoot. So I did. And I continue to.

These are simply photos of me actively paying attention. I'm fortunate to live near the ocean and when there's low tide, beautiful ecosystems are unveiled, as in the first photograph. The second, is of a wonderful friend sitting in a spectacular garden. What could make a better combination?

It's a great feeling, in addition to an amazing sense of accomplishment to look around my home and know that my walls and shelves are filled with what I see happening around me everyday. I never go anywhere without my camera. I think what comes out is pretty cool. It doesn't really matter what anyone else thinks because it's for me. It's my therapy, my learning, my path.

What do you keep telling yourself you'd like to experience?

Get Ready!

I'm in the process of creating an innovative television program that will show you how to keep your body humming along in tip-top condition and you'll do it by having fun! I'm telling you this because I want you to come along with me.

The show is for you, for women. It will open you up to a world of adventure; it will show you how masterfully powerful you really are; it will show you how fitness is synonomous with fun; and oh, how good it is to be a girl! When the show happens, you have to be ready to come along for the ride and that's what this blog is all about. I will show you how to develop a wonderful base of fitness with very little money, if any, that will then alow you to try anything you desire.

What do you desire? What have you always secretely wanted to try but never have for whatever reason? And what are those reasons? Be honest. Is it money? Time? Do you feel you lack the skills?

Well, skills can be developed, time can be found, and by becoming just a bit resourceful, money becomes a much smaller hurdle.

Are you ready? I'll show you how. Stay tuned!
