     When we act out of love there is a purity and agendas drop away, whatever those agenda might be. I've been doing my best to work out of love for at least a decade and it's made all the difference. When I made the choice to sell my modest home and sell or give away most of my possessions to focus on donating literacy programs first in Central America (Belize) and then in other places that needed my service, it opened a new pathway. Now I gift all sorts of skill sets: whether that is Storytelling services or listening or sharing hot soup and clean socks with homeless through impromptu street outreach or sharing counseling or.... you name it. And when these services are gifted from the heart there's a feeling that washes over you, it is simply the right thing to do; not for any accolades or attention or return, but because it is love and it is heart and we are all human. I've had friends tell me I need to record what I am doing on video so it goes "viral" and more people see what i do, I have very much resisted that because to me it takes away the love and authenticity of the exchange. I would rather tell the Stories from my heart and if it inspires someone else to act, then my love work is done.
    PS. Glad to be back, I've been Storytelling Consulting for a large world organization and it has taken some of my focus away, I am so grateful to be here with you today in Heart and what a perfect message to return to. HUG!
