I was born a daughter and a sister. I became a friend and then a wife and mom. I feel, at all times, blessed. I believe the universe behaves like a boomerang, returning to you all the energy you expended tenfold. I aim for kindness whenever possible. I think laughter is the best medicine. I think that travel is the best education and that reading is the next best thing. I feel the most healthy and whole with salty sea air in my lungs and the wind on my face. I both like and dislike people. (Sometimes the same ones.) It has been my experience that an afternoon with loved ones followed by an indulgent nap are the surest cure I know to restore my peace of mind. I make mistakes. Sometimes, I learn so much from them, I make them again. I believe that personal fulfillment comes from doing the small things that we enjoy daily. I indulge in many a guilty pleasure. I find that forming new habits is much easier than giving up old ones. I believe in ethics over morals. But, most of all, I believe in love.
