Three Things About Me
I am a morning person and love the early morning air. I do a lot of my writing then and I feel most at peace in the mornings because I’m closest to my dream reality and my waking reality.
The yin and yang to my life is tennis and writing. I’m a competitive tennis athlete and it brings out my fearless side. I love training and my time in the gym and the tennis court; I’d still be that shy/scared little soul without tennis. So, I am forever grateful for all the lessons and growth it has brought me. And writing brings out my free side. Writing has let me evolve into so many versions of my soul and truly has blessed me in so many ways; a big one being connection to the Universe and connecting with all of you! What brings the yin and yang of my life together is that I don’t think in either of them. In tennis, I let the adrenaline, the flow and my intuition do its thing. And same thing for writing, just in a different way.
I’ve been vegan for 13 years, sugar-free for 1 year and I am fascinated by the human body. I think we are much stronger and more powerful than we truly know. Taking care of my body brings me freedom and healthy routines and those routines bring me such comfort.
My Answers To Grace’s Questions
What is the greatest lesson you have learned? – Definitely, to speak up for myself and to release my emotions/thoughts. For so many years, I bottled everything up and stuffed it all down. And once I started to speak up for myself in small things, it leaked into bigger areas of my life and spread to let me become fearless and free. It’s a freeing thing to stand up for yourself and to lose the fear of “what is someone going to think if I say this?” or “is this the right or wrong way?” Through standing up for myself, I also learned to love myself. Once I had the courage to verbally speak my thoughts, I had the courage to internally release my emotions. And putting those two together, led me to be fearless and free.
What advice would you give to yourself from 10 years ago? – To enjoy life more. My fear trapped me in a cage of worry and rushing and getting things over with, I forgot the simplest thing – to enjoy life. It is a regret of mine, but even if I could change it, I don’t think I would. The fear truly let me grow and I can honestly say, I’m so grateful for all the lessons it taught me and all the versions of me I got to meet. Becoming fearless was the greatest feeling in my life, and without fear I wouldn’t have got there. So, I’d tell myself from 10 years ago to enjoy life and my journey – it’s a fun ride no matter the bumps.
What is your favorite and least favorite color? – Blue is my favorite (black is a near second :-), and red is my least favorite.
How would you want to be remembered? – As someone who didn’t live to be remembered but who lived to truly LIVE. Someone who inspired, who dreamed, who spread love and freedom and someone who fulfilled this life’s mission. I truly believe in reincarnation and that this life is simply my soul’s current stop on my journey, so, I think no matter how I’m remembered in this timeline/reality I’ll continue living and learning elsewhere.
What is your favorite quote? – “Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.” -John Wooden. It’s truly helped me a lot in my life.
