How do you take care of yourself?
How much time do you have? I’m writing this sitting in the quiet room at Kohler spa less than 10 days before Christmas to take time, in advance, for me. Ha! When I have a packed day of responsibilities with family, I take an hour to exercise first thing for myself. I have found this to be instrumental in my giving. If I feel blue or run down I make time for a simple pleasure such as a walk, meal or a bath. I pour into the preparation of it like I would for a loved one. Just thinking this makes me feel warm inside.
What do you wish you had more time for?
Meditation. I’m letting go of “busy” which for me looks like spending time in quiet.
What are you most grateful for?
My family is a gift from God (the universe, creator, whatever makes you comfortable). I have been blessed with exceptional parents who model unconditional love, generosity, and boundless energy. My husband, our parents, children, siblings, and in-laws play out this incredible cosmic dance. I feel like I’m on a game show with a cast of characters. I win, I lose, another door opens, a new contestant appears, (wearing I don’t know what). Life is comical, and family supports my path to grow.
“Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
What is your first (or best) memory?
The one that gets the most play is when our 3-hour old son first sneezed. My mother, husband, and I looked at each other and gasped with opened mouths at this miracle. We often laugh about this when we talk about how wonderful he is. Ross just turned 14.
What do you know for sure?
Love conquers fear.
What scares you?
The handrail on an escalator
What do you believe?
I believe in this moment.
