allow yourself to believe and stop getting stuck

We are on a cross country road trip from South Carolina to California…coast to coast. Miles and miles of corn stand tall, together, waving in the wind. Trees line rivers one after another. Vast expanses of blue sky spread out in front of us, billowy clouds in every direction. Scrub brush for as far as the eye can see. Not once…

seek and ye shall find…

Our brains like to prove us right. We say, “I’m terrible at remembering names.” Immediately, your brain shows you all the times this has been true in your life.

Are you an athlete, scientist, or movie director?

Burning ships

When Cortez landed in the New World, history tells us, he told his men to burn the ships they had arrived in. The only option was to survive where they had landed. They had to find their way in this new land or die trying. That’s what I did. For many years, I knew I was supposed to be…
