V-The Paleo Boss Lady

One day I woke up and knew for certain that the ‘golden ticket’ to life happens between our ears. At the same time I realized if this was true, my entire life needed to completely change. Everything felt broken and without question it was time for me to step inside myself and figure out who the f%^)^$) I was.  At this time, I was almost penniless, struggling with the effects of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) on my body, divorced twice and barely able to care for myself. Life was beyond f%^)^$) up.  I was also close to graduating with a masters in psychology specializing in building communities.  As luck would have it, this created the ‘perfect storm’ for what would become known as my miracle journey. My studies and life choices created the space for me to shut the fuck up and close my eyes for the 1st time in close to 50 years.
