Please stay tuned for more posts on peace and a continuation of the “Lead with Empathy” series this summer. I am learning how to balance the energy in my life to include time for writing. And the intention of this writing is to sincerely demonstrate consideration and empathy, which take a commitment to keeping your heart healed and strong. Fortunately healing continues to happen and I am eager now to take all of the ideas and notes that have been piling up and give them honor by following through with composing them into pieces I can share. Since the Fall I have been focused on putting energy into building our local Compassionate Communication Community, re-starting my massage business, homeschooling and being a contributing member of my hometown, much more than writing. I miss it and I can’t wait to start again. What I am so excited about now is sharing my work in person. I have not reached near the amount of people I had hoped with this blog because it is not the avenue I feel most comfortable or competent walking when it comes to sharing myself and my peace work. So If you’d like to see me deliver my passion for peace while in the same physical space, I highly encourage you consider coming to my opening.
Here’s the info..
