Welcome to my blog! 

Here I’ll share my life experiences as I explore strengths in myself and others, and what lights me up. My intention is to inspire you by sharing stories that hopefully will inspire and connect you to new possibilities, or if nothing else a different point of view. I’ll share the tools that I use to continually SIMPLIFY. BE. CREATE. an ever evolving life that is fun, with full self-expression and kindness inside + out.

The POV’s expressed on this site are mine, inspired my interpretations and/or experiences of the CliftonStrengths® Signature Themes, Access Consciousness® tools, teachings of Jennifer Butler Living Colors, and life in general. Click on the links for more information.
