I talk a lot about presence.
If you've read my recent blogs, it may seem as if I've got this presence and surrender thing nailed.
Yay me! I can cross that bit off...

I used to be like a scrappy little dog when it came to making things happen.
Surrender my goals?
Ha! Just TRY taking that juicy steak away from me.
I'm a DOER, love.

I just got back into town after Officiating the wedding of my Nephew and his beautiful bride.

It's already been a busy summer full of parties, funerals, and reunions.
People are moving from their homes, retiring from significant jobs, starting a new position, getting married, or getting divorced.
Almost everyone I know is facing some kind of personal challenge...

This is the last entry in my blog series, Brain vs Heart.
