Great-Grandma & Frank Capra
When I was a teenager, my great grandmother moved up from California in order to be closer to us in her later years.
Literally “the little old lady from Pasadena” she had a vibrant, social personality that had charmed many a famous writer and artist including the famous director Frank Capra -- who had been head-over-heels in love with her. Something happened though when she moved to the retirement center here in Oregon, and before long, she was wheelchair bound and dependent on my mother to get her around.
This went on for some time until my mother herself got struck with a sudden, unexpected, and life changing illness that left her homebound. At some point, my grandmother must’ve realized that there was no one to take care of her but herself. So what did she do? She just got up out of her wheelchair, moved her room further down the hall so she had to walk a longer distance to the dining hall, and started socializing and playing bridge with her new friends!
So here is the lesson my grandmother taught me. If we want to make a change in our lives whether it is getting “unstuck” or improving out health, the first and most important step is to imagine that it may be possible – because the minute we decide that we can’t do something, the result has already been written in stone. Nothing can or will happen. However, even thinking something might happen, or could be possible monumentally increases the possibility of creating that reality.

The second step is risk. We have to the risk the possibility that something might not work out. However, even if something “fails” we are still infinitely closer to achieving what we wanted than if we never tried at all. So called failures are really just little experiments to see what works or not and each experience gives us greater information and wisdom for the journey.
Taking Risks. Experimenting, & Excitement
This year I am taking some risks. I’m experimenting with different ways of doing things, because I want to grow as a practitioner, serve people better, and to branch off into other areas that I have been wanting to do for a long time.
I have to admit, as vulnerable as this is, it is also very exciting. I'm doing some things that I have only dreamt of for years. Please keep an eye out for some of the new and exciting things that are happening this year in soon-to-be released updates.
Also I invite you to join me in taking a risk in changing something in your life or with your health and getting the support you need to make those changes a reality. You don't have to do it alone. Check out new packages for 2015 to support those wanting to make deep and powerful change in their lives.
