About Me I am optimistic, open-minded, accepting, non-judgmental, hard-working, caring and idealistic. I have faith and I see that no one can do everything but I know that everyone can do something. There are enough resources to go around! The systems we have in place are no longer serving us. There are devastating decisions being made for reasons that I can not comprehend that have a complete disregard for the human race. People are looked at as the "other" when we are all really made of the same "stuff." Life is not black and white, rather, it is a complete spectrum of colors; black is the absence of colors whereas white is the inclusion of all colors. Black and white exist withen themselves as well. All aspects are true. Life is subjective and right and wrong is purely speculative. Multiple truths CO-EXIST in this universe and I believe that we all have been given the power to choose what is best for us based on our own experiences. I do not feel that money brings happiness but rather it is our perspective that will brings us happiness. Unfortunately, in this world - at this point in time - money and greed are the driving force within our society. The world is a scary place because we have been conditioned to be scared but we do not have to be. We need to wake-up and get to work on re-directing this world see the light and to not allow our beutiful earth and every loving human being to be destroyed and disregarded any longer. This life as we know it is worth a fight!

Wild Fact About Me I love to dance. That is about as wild as it gets.
My Philosophy What goes around comes around.
What Gives Me Hope The miracle of every day and everyone in my life.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Start caring about every human being that exists in this world and change the systems rather than be a puppet.
What/who changed my life and why The book that changed my life is Conversations with God which is a dialogue that changed my perspective on life, took away my fears, and gave me hope for the future. I recommend it to anyone with an open mind and an open heart. It comlimented everything that I instinctively knew as well as everything that is proven to be true. I have never really considered my self to be a religous person, "per se," but I do feel very close to God and I believe that everyone else is capable and deserving to feel the same way. I understand and now what life is all about and I accept that it is different for everyone.
