Simplify, evaluate health, practice awareness, and work intentionally – all steps of the ladder that lead us to a life of peace and contentment.
Most of these practices run counter to the messages of the consumeristic ego-based messaging that we are surrounded by, complicated still by the endless ways that we can numb and entertain ourselves 24 hours a day. I have felt for years that we cannot drift with the flow of a common life without gaining weight, and becoming unhealthy and out of balance. Health must be pursued aggressively as we age.

Please join me as I strive, falter, and learn about how to advance upwards. I am terribly flawed, but believe that by courageously sharing ones imperfect journey, we can learn from one another.
May we all evolve together, here’s to the Evolution of U!
