My relationship to technology:
Before we left on our trip, things were different. I worked with technology every day. But I do remember a time before my laptop and I were fused together. I had computer(s), yes, but back then, I refused to own a laptop.
Because I knew myself. I owned and ran a busy a design / branding agency and I was a workaholic. I spend at least 60+ hours a week in front of my duel giga-something apples in the office loft, (which for many years also happened to …

The faint sounds of muffled sobbing softly radiated from the seat behind me.
It was all so familiar, the release of overwhelming sadness, able to occupy the entire mind simply by giving it attention. However without attention, such sadness can be stored just below the surface and plainly hidden from sight.
The bump, bump, vibrating sounds of the bus, were hypnotic. But the faint sniffles and controlled inhales were all I could hear. I sat in the darkness, wide-eyed, focused on the pain being experienced behind me.
I tend to be quite empathetic, …
In the Moment, Inspiration, Peru »
It is a well known fact:

Fear is powerful.
Fear, as a topic, comes up quite a bit for us now. But not how you may think. It comes up in the form of questions asked of us, seeking the tricks we used to overcome fear in our lives.

We’ve merely learned to transform our relationship to fear and prevent it from becoming a dominant force in our lives.
That is the purpose for this article, an attempt to provide a resource for you.
