Moving and 31 Days Of…

Change is inevitable.  You either move with it, or it moves over you.  I’ve decided to move with it.  It’s just that time to do so – curating my brand, thoughts, and creative ideas.  I started this blog back in 2009, and I want to keep writing about thoughts on living and authentic life.  It’s something I value.  I also value moving in the direction that is right for me, so you’ll find me writing how a new, self-hosted website.  The name is  now my own, and you’ll find me at  Because being yourself works best when you’re wholly yourself.

I’m grateful for each of you who has followed this blog.  I appreciate your support.  I invite you to join me there.  So come on over.

I sometimes wonder if the human spirit understands impending change more than the human mind.  There must be some divine capacity for the human spirit to assess change and prepare the rest of the mind and body for impact.  No, this isn’t doom and gloom.  This is real talk pruning, saying no, and reassessing the why.
