PLEASE SHARE SOME WORDS OF WISDOM YOU’VE LEARNED AS A DIRECT RESULT OF SOULFUL AND EMBODIED LIVING.
Two years ago, my house and business burned to the ground in the middle of the night. It was scary and deeply devastating to experience so much loss. When the contents of one's existence end up on the pyre of Prometheus' pawn-shop, soulful and embodied living takes a deep dive into the unknown. Through the tears and fears, every life lesson came into full focus and as always, appreciation is a true life line. As a family we focused on the wisdom of gratitude, counting our blessings and blessing life back. This divine play with providence and living in the awe of appreciation forged the phoenix to lift us from the ashes of despair.
