Tonight, I couldn’t find my key pass to the gym so had to head back home & work out with the Jillian Michaels DVD on Xbox. During the killer workout, as I was groaning, she said something profoundly challenging - “If you want to get in shape, you better get comfortable with being uncomfortable.” I suddenly realized that the past year of my life has been one of constantly being pushed further & further out of my comfort zone - from projects in rebel areas of the jungles, to trying to help kidnapped victims, to experiencing betrayal by a close friend, to starting a nonprofit from nothing, to signing an agreement to develop 1.2 million acres of land & rainforest, to becoming President of a Legal Plan company - all at once. It’s been a tremendous year of growth because everyday I have had to become comfortable with being uncomfortable. It looks like it’s going to remain that way for a long time .. and now I realize that it’s a good thing = ))
As we travel around the world, it’s wonderful to discover other members of our Community of Humanity who are doing great work to empower survivors of poverty, atrocity, tragedy and slavery - this was in #asheville NC

During the last year of my life & every year, my most incredible blessing is my family & I am so grateful!
As I reflect upon the lives of those whom our lives touched & whose lives touched our hearts this past, I realize that the riches & blessings of this past year are incalculable - #humanility #l_evate #indigenouseconomicdevelopmentsolutionscorp
Of all the heart moving, soul shaking challenges during the past year of my life, working for the restoration & rebuilding of lives devastated by Typhoon #haiyan was the most painfully difficult. The heroes of Leyte, Samar, Northern Cebu, Panay & Palawan taught us all so much.
