Always Wear Clean Underwear

When I was 16 years old, one of my best friends died.  Andrea’s death changed my life. I saw how much people hurt, including me, and I realized the brutal impact of her choice. The devastation she left in her wake, forced me to comes to terms with mortality, and emotional pain. I took a long, long time to find the right choice: I chose to live a different way - a positive way. I chose to embrace life: I chose, that no matter what life threw at me, I would not quit.

LIfe can be a vindictive bitch.

My life became a bad movie of car accidents, botched surgeries, disease and personal crises that left me with metal body parts and turned my commitment to positive living into dogged determination. It took some soul-searching and some learning to evolve my life and claim my ability to live gratitude every day.  And to build my ability to create what I want - regardless of life’s sense of humour.

Fortunately I have a sense of humour, too, which allowed me to take the lesson Andrea taught me and use it to continue after each challenge. I’m thrilled to say that I no longer need such challenges in my life.. I choose joy everyday. 

I choose to create the best! You can, too.
