My Mantras


Below are the mottos I live by that have become so ingrained by repetition that they’ve become habits. My life has been profoundly enhanced by taking them to heart and living them:

Expect nothing.

Be grateful for everything.

Treat life as the great adventure that it is.

Do everything with love.

If any of you ever see me not living up to them, please tell me.

Thank you.

With love,
