     Every day! Every single day! I live in my heart, maybe too much some say. Every day I seek out to love others, offer compassion, offer listening and share heart. It is challenging when we live in a world that outwardly values doing so much more than being. Just last weekend I was fortunate to participate in a burning man type festival in the forest and it was all about sharing heart. We were present with each other, we hugged often, we looked deep into each others eyes and we listened and we spoke from our hearts. It was magical! I do my best to do and live this way every day. Being mindful helps to seek out the dark corners and to share them. At this very moment I am piecing together a project called Wings of Hope to break stigma surrounding mental health challenges, I've reached out asking people to share a photo of themselves and a descriptor beyond their diagnosis, it has been an incredibly heartfelt  experience even in the first few days. I am so grateful my heart is open enough to do this work. Hugs from my heart to yours, Kristin
