blackyellowThe one dream you have that you just can’t stop thinking about

Just one? Can I have at least three?

Become a mural artist. Travel the world. Be a caretaker in an animal shelter or a wildlife reserve.

The biggest way you’ve changed in the past year

I’m more open to abundance now.

Three rules you try to live by

Let authenticity and joy be your compass. Don’t lose your childlike sense of play and wonder. Use self-awareness as a superpower.

A list of things you love about this season of your life

Tough self-confrontations are teaching me how to be grounded. The time to work-out and grow stronger. Spending lovely times with my dogs. Enjoying quality and fun conversations with my boyfriend. Healing in our family.

Out by Natsuo Kirino, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series by Stieg Larsson, In the Time of the Butterflies by Julia Alvarez, Gone Girl by Julian Flynn, Prozac Nation by Elizabeth Wurtzel, Quiet by Susan Cain, Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert, Bata, Bata, Paano Ka Ginawa by Lualhati Bautista, A Great Love by Alexandra Kollontai, Water by Bapsi Sidhwa – they are about kick-ass women who defy stereotypes and/or are written by kick-ass women. They go against the grain and are well-written.

Your bad habits

A round-table session where we criticize ourselves and each other openly and regularly.
