No Matter What…Just Be Happy 

There will always be others who hate to see you happy and the haters will do anything to bring you down to their level.  

When you choose in the moment to shake off their negativity…replacing it with positivity, knowing that this immediate challenge will pass.  

No Matter What…Just Be Real 

Your mindset is too valuable real estate to allow uninvited guests into your private space.  

Allow only those friends or partners who share in your same visionary outlook and problem-solving sphere of influence into your living space. 

No Matter What…Just Be Proactive, Not Reactive 

Create a proactive mission statement which not only sharpens the saw but begins with the end in mind and is a win/win synergistic environment for all involved in the process. 

No Matter What…Just Don’t Compromise 

When you seek first to understand those who differ with you…only then can you be understood, as you would have placed yourself in their position, without compromising your core values…finding common ground and mutually-beneficial results.

“Waking the Lion Within” 


As a proud graduate of California State University, Chico with an earned BA degree in International Relations, Master of Arts degree in Public Policy, and a past study abroad participant at the University of Tuebingen, education has always been up front and center in both our family and my professional career. My blogging project is an eclectic work in progress and intended to increase global awareness through selections and stories of my studies and travels. As future global citizens we can seek first to understand one another through word pictures and engage our collective creative intellects to change our community; one blog at a time.
