No Apologies

I feel pretty comfortable sharing my thoughts with you but today, this post is really personal. I have kept it under wraps for quite a few months, I was not ready to share it publicly – but I’m ready now. Sort of. Gulp.

I guess I am ready now because I believe – no, I know – that the message needs to be heard and spread and sometimes you have to make yourself vulnerable to do that.

So, get quiet, take two minutes out of your busy life and reflect on what you are about to see.

I would love to hear your thoughts on the question I pose at the end of the animation. And if you are so inclined to share it within your circles – even better. Thanks for that.
