Before that, I was the model 'girl next door,' Girl Scout and then Prom Queen twice. I earned a four year State Scholarship by exam and then went to college at the University of Illinois and I got my degree at Northwestern. But in spite of 'making the Dean's List,' I learned virtually nothing; my fault.
Then some years later, I got on a motorcycle with an idiot and became a hippie. Those were the most miserable months of my life.
Spending almost 3 years without my kids was my worst mistake.
Not learning how to spot low-toned and destructive people earlier was not smart.
Thinking that everyone else had the answers and knew what they were doing was especially stupid. My own integrity and awareness should have been what guided me through all those years of doubt and mistakes.
But, thanks to the efforts of an amazing man, with clarity and vision and persistence, I began to unravel the questions I had had for a very long time. Then I began to find my own answers and to see that I although I had made many mistakes, I wasn't wrong about many things.
We don't have to have wars and disease and insanity. We don't need to hurt one another and make life harder than it already is. We can be happy. I know. I am.
I have seven grandchildren and they are each amazing to me. I was there for each birth and I want to last a long time to see what they do and if there is any way that I can help.
Ask me anything. :-)
