Who I am… A Dreamer. Writer. Traveler. Lover of Life. Artist & Collector of Words. Soulful. Willing. Adventurous. Nourishing. Intermittently Melancholy. Seeker of Wisdom. Introverted Socialite.

I occasionally stumble across a writer who has offered up tender words that are just what I need to hear on that particular day. I don’t know them. They don’t know me. But somehow, by divine grace, they have spoken directly to my heart and opened up a wellspring of possibility, clarity, compassion, memory and/or new questions in me that cannot be ignored. It is my hope to connect my readers to the deepest parts of themselves. To inspire others to see themselves as the beautiful, loving, deserving creatures we all came to the Universe to be. Those are the posts that personally fill me with the most joy. Those are the soulbeams I hope to impart from my heart to yours…
Writing has become my escape from a world enmeshed in noise, technology, darkness, and blindness of sensation and spirit. I write as the words begin to wrestle around in my heart. Most times I have to just stop and expel whatever inspirations arise. On paper. On my iPhone. On a scrap of receipt. On the back of my hand. On a napkin. While sitting at work, driving my car (well, I at least pull over first!), having dinner, drifting off to sleep. As writer, Ann Lamott urges… “all I need to do right now is write down as much as I can see through a one-inch picture frame.” My writing can very much be described exactly as such. One-inch picture frames. Some pristine. Glitzy. Polished. Some well-worn. Tarnished. A little torn & tattered. Always real. Always me. Hopefully a little you.
I sure hope you’ll stick around! Give me feedback. Comment. Share.
A lot of days my life is pretty much the same… get up
at BEFORE the crack of dawn, train some people to be healthy & fit, go to the REAL job, some days return to train more people to be healthy & fit, go home, feed four-legged Farmers, and go to bed. All with the knowledge that tomorrow will hold more of the same.
Then there are the days that I kick off all that is “normal” in this life and tackle whatever is placed in my way.
I want to see the world. Follow a map to it’s edges, and keep going. Forgo the plans, trust my instincts, let curiosity be my guide. I want to change hemispheres, sleep with unfamiliar stars and let the journey unfold before me.
Follow me on our journeys about the globe as we motivate, inspire and keep the masses moving at some of our favorite vacation spots.
As fitness pros, we are afforded the incredible luxury of traveling as guest instructors to resorts around the world. We are the rare ones awake and beachside by 6 am, coffees in hand, music pulsing, energy exuding while others are barely stirring from nights of depravity and indulgence. We are on a mission. A mission to impart all things health and wellness to the lives we touch for those few brief days.
