Let the Beauty of what you Love be what you do...

An ancient wisdom by Sufi mystic and poet Rumi says: "Let the beauty of what you love be what you do". I love this quote as it prompts us to be very intent everyday on following our passions and dreams. I am grateful that one of my mentors (R.I.P Art H. Harper) shared with me this secret when I started my professional career. It has been one of the threads of my life. Although the journey is extremely challenging at times, it continues to offer tremendous growth opportunities and I feel blessed to say that I have never felt I have worked a day in my life...

My wish and hope is to support RECONNECTION: Reconnection with ourselves, Reconnection with others and Reconnection with Nature. Then, together we can co-create a world in which we all thrive.
