courage, the first step

Is Good Sleep a Choice? Like most people, I’ve used sleeping aids, food, alcohol, and at one time prescribed drugs to doze off to sleep. The problem is that consciously entering sleep is very different from our “taking the edge off” to sleep which usually means passing out through the […]

Doors, Possibility and Breakthroughs



include
I write a lot about it. I’m a huge advocate of it. So, what is inclusiveness really? The short definition is – to consider everything…everyone. Peeling back the layers and digging deeper we can discover that inclusiveness is active – to actively value each other. In my opinion, actively valuing […]

Inclusiveness – Evolving Conversation
