I’ve been having discussions recently with people about happiness, as clients have been saying “I just want to be happy.” This peaked my curiosity and I started asking the question “What does that mean to you?

Riding the Roller Coaster

Co-incidence – A Sure Sign of Being on Purpose

by Patricia

Life in the last few weeks has been full of co-incidence. One of the most touching was finding Healing the Warrior Heart on Indiegogo.com. I got to talk with a young veteran, committed to sharing his heart that others might heal. We found we have a common mission and his work bears a title very […]
