Let’s be completely honest here: No one likes challenging situations! Yet the fact is life happens and we all experience what I call life’s unscripted moments such as loss, poor health, setbacks, etc. These unwanted intruders invade our lives and can leave devastation in their wake.

Nor does it have to take a great deal of effort to bring about the change. I often find that it is the little changes I make in my life that adds the most value.
Long hot days, flowers in bloom, barbeques and the prospect of taking some time out to read and reflect. Summer is a great season for throwing off the heaviness of colder months and moving forward into exciting new things. (more…)
