“Truth is a point of view, but authenticity can’t be faked.”
– Peter Guber

Authentic effort counts more than careless action.

Think of a time when you received gifts from others. Which gifts stood out to you? Maybe there were a couple of standard go-to gifts that were given to you because it’s what was expected and they obliged politely. But then there was that one gift that made you pause in time and smile with tears building up in your eyes. The value of this gift was probably no more than the other gifts, but the effort and intention behind it were exceptional.

Each day, we are given the gift of life. And each day we have the opportunity to share our gifts by intentionally living authentically rather than carelessly moving through the actions.

“The length of a man’s outspread arms is equal to his height.” – Leonardo da Vinci

“The length of a man’s outspread arms is equal to his height.”
-Leonardo da Vinci
In order for us to bring our life to new heights, we must open our arms wide to embrace all it has to offer… 
… even if it chest bumps you and slaps your ass like you’re going out on the field
… and even if it beats on your back over and over like an overly excited family member while screaming into your ear unintelligible anecdotes and accolades.
Who opens their arms to you when you’re feeling down?

Learning Cycles and Styles – KLSI 5.0

Considering I take about 20x more time to write a social media post compared to my friends and tend to over think everything due to my weak gallbladder chi, I feel it’s agreeable that I learn by thinking, analyzing, then reflecting.

According to the KLSI 5.0 quick quiz linked below, I’m a “theorist”.

Theorists like to think through problems in a logical manner.
They value rationality and objectivity, and like to assimilate disparate facts into coherent theories.
They are disciplined, aiming to fit things into a rational order.
They are often keen on basic assumptions, principles, theories, models and systems thinking.

What are you? Take the Quiz on http://www.emtrain.eu/learning-styles/

Dante the Cat Sailing on S/V Remedy

When the fluidity of life seems to be blocked, flush out the barriers and facilitate free-flowing frameworks.

This photo with my cat Dante was from a spur of the moment sail on my boat which had not been moved from the marina since hurricane Irma! Many fears had built up barriers in my mind but the moment I faced these fears and started my engine, it was one of the smoothest days on the water that I had ever had.
