Freedom to be Yourself


The freedom to be yourself is the ultimate experience of life. The freedom of (self)awareness and authenticity. The ability to act instead of being acted upon is positive freedom. To make our own choices not based on external interferences or circumstances. Rather, to choose consciously and in alignment with our own purpose and essence. [...]

Diverse Perspective


A willingness to listen to different perspectives allows for growth, learning, unlearning and change. We are desperately in need of leadership. Of courageous people willing to be vulnerable and brave enough to acknowledge their privilege in order to have open and honest dialogue. Of diverse leaders with differing perspectives who are willing to embrace [...]

Freedom Day


Today, as the US celebrates Juneteenth, I invite us all to be intentional. To celebrate the end of slavery but also to do & learn more. Use this day as a time of remembrance, exploration and celebration of African American history and heritage. Take time to educate yourself and to learn how to make [...]

We Need You


We need you Every single one of YOU. Your strength. Your compassion. Your voice! Your unique approach and perspective is needed. Your willingness to stand up for others is crucial. Your silence is not acceptable. How will you take responsibility? What can you learn? Who can you listen to? What are you willing to share [...]

Today We Listen


We stand in solidarity with the Black community and are united in the fight against systemic racism in our country. Today, we prefer to listen. To learn and do our part and our own work on anti-racism. Rather than a Foundfully Friday, we share Anti-Racism Resources, intended to serve as a resource to white [...]

Communicate Ambivalence


With the world starting to reopen, various opinions, approaches and risk tolerance levels abound. Vacillation is absolutely normal. Being uncertain about safety, reaching a breaking point, wanting to have more social interactions and feeling ambivalent can be daunting. I invite you to start by being honest with yourself and your immediate family about what [...]

Unexpected Gifts


As the world slowly starts to (re)open, humans everywhere are continuing to deal with uncertainties. From varied degrees of risk tolerance to professional and economic insecurities to fears personally and for loved ones. Most, if not all, of those uncertain thoughts and emotions are out of our control. Acknowledging that reality allows me to [...]

Collecting Proof


As we move through these unusual days, many of us are experiencing a multitude of emotions. Some leave us feeling sad, angry and impatient. We may have started to take some things for granted. Overlooking opportunities for positives in this whole experience. Today, I invite you to pause and reflect on making the invisible [...]

True Vulnerability


The true sign of vulnerability is showing up transparently, even when you are uncertain by how it will be received. Today, I write you openly and honestly to share that I have not been inspired to write a Foundfully Friday for the first time since I began in January 2018. During these trying and [...]

Choose Presence


There are things that come into our lives whether intentionally or synchronously that when we pay attention and embrace, have deep lasting impact. To identify and recognize these opportunities, we must be fully present and paying attention. With time distorted recently, where days fly by or seem interminable, we often find we cannot be [...]
