A few weeks ago, I embarked on a 6 day silent retreat to realign my inner core. Life constantly knocks us down. We may not realize it, but little by little it subtly pushes us away from our centre.
This can show up in the form of reactivity, fear, loss of confidence, lack of drive and energy over time. So as the world continues to move into chaos, how can we learn to tune out the noise and stay grounded?
To be centred is to remain calm, non reactive, and confident as life is unpredictable. Being able to see the bigger picture, and not be engrossed by the details or easily swayed by opinions keeps us centered.
I invite you to reflect on your life at this very moment – Are you operating at some level of fear? Or are you operating with confidence?
We’ll never truly know if we’re centred until we experience it, and to do that requires a willingness to have difficult conversations with ourselves and others while being firm and transparent, asking the hard questions.
In which areas of life are we walking on eggshells, and trying to please? Have we always done that?
Spending time in silence or working with someone we trust can support us as we shift back to our centre, allowing us to operate with confidence, and embrace life.
By experiencing, we become aware of our potential.
With love and gratitude,
The world is growing older and less physically active. Sedentary lifestyles are a leading factor of poor health, in particular non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes and heart disease. Yet more than 80% of American adults and 50% of Europeans of all ages do not meet current health recommendations for physical activity.
Though we may be living longer, we’re not living better. How can we change this? I invite you to check out the resources from Fit for Life Foundation to learn more.

Why wait until the next generation family members are in their 20s, 30s, or even 40s to show them how the family gives. Involving children, teens, and young adults in age-appropriate ways can contribute to making stewardship a natural part of life, teaching important skills, and fostering intergenerational bonds.
