HOPE. What is the role of hope in your life? If your world seems to be disintegrating right before your eyes, how do you pick yourself up? I’ve been answering more calls lately from people who are trying to make sense of our rapidly changing world. They are searching for refuge from the storm – something to hold on to. Some, who have never been unemployed in their adult lives, have lost their livelihoods.
BOLDNESS. Are you hiding out waiting for life to happen? Do you let fear or doubt hold you back? What bold moves will you make this year to live authenticity? My Mom’s cousin, Juanita Jeanette Lindsey, died in Harlem at the age of 71. On the surface, Jeanette appeared to live an ordinary life, yet her everyday boldness made her extraordinary.
THE BUZZ: I was honored today to once again take a workshop with Tao Porchon-Lynch, one of my favorite yoga teachers. At 90 years old, she is stronger – physically and spiritually – than most people I know, and is a constant inspiration for my own life and many others. She often talks about allowing the yoga practice to come from the inside which is where your true power lies. She is indeed a PWR Broker – a light that shines so bright that you feel her warmth the moment you step into her presence.
