Two working Legs

These weeks are whizzing by, how can it be time to do another blog? Today I am a little laid up as I sprained my ankle in the surf. I was having a ball, looking up at the sky, jumping in the waves, yelling and feeling lucky to be alive. Then a nice little wave…

I gave a talk last week to 300 odd women (no they weren’t odd) and I thought it was something I would like to share as it relates to gratitude. When I was 19 I had a very BIG year. This was the year I first heard the concept that you should be grateful in…
