“That our souls do the most work in the mud. A karmic concept that those who have the oldest, wisest souls are those who must overcome the most difficult of circumstances in this lifetime and beyond. That to grow our souls we must keep searching within, learning and continue refusing the ego's desire to grow in the outer, materialistic world.”

What do you do?

I reach into, expand, and explore light within darkness.

Why?

Because I don't accept a deficit approach and believe that within us all is a light that shines only more because of darkness. To challenge mine and others' thinking and turn negative deficit lenses on their heads' to reveal the paradox of strength, growth, and resilience.
