I approach my life with the goal of what can I learn, how deeply can I understand, how much more mature can my responses be, how much more deeply and joyous and playfully can I love. On the intellectual side, since I am constantly reading, learning, thinking, I also revel in the arts, love to create things: I paint murals, I make craft gifts for loved ones. I revel in sights, sounds, smells. I am an INFJ: I am quiet, heart-felt and decisive. I have a toughness in making decisions. Above all else, I have courage - I don't flinch from the tough conversations, and I always take responsibility for my choices - and I have integrity - I will tell you the truth, with gentleness (unless I'm hungry and need my nap) and I will never cheat you or cheat on you. I love to be out of doors soaking up the glories of nature, and most of my vacations are to see some glorious natural beauty; some involve museums. I walk every day. Lots of exercise! Eat a healthy almost-vegetarian diet. Meditate daily. My work is seminars, books and workshops on conflict resolution, negotiation, related topics and stress reduction. I am also a Master Reiki healer (good for physical ailments as well as emotional stability), and I teach/guide people who want to learn that as well. I am a career and life coach, so I ask questions more than lecture.
I am involved with MoveOn, and I write a lot - blogs, articles - and I am always looking for more venues to speak. My gift is words. I take one day off a week (Sunday) in which I don't think about what's wrong with the world and avoid people on that day who can't keep it out of their conversation. Reason: My soul needs to focus on transcendent reality and get a short rest from What's Wrong - true and important though that is - for one day out of the week. It gives me the energy to tackle the needs of the world the other six days.
