Contemplate death so you can live and give more

  Living is a team sport. Dying is a team sport. ~ Timothy Leary.   A culture of denial:  When we talk about death, if we at all do, we don't entertain it for the exact experience of what it is. Genocides and decapitations happen elsewhere or on TV. Angelina Jolie...

I never want to forget how the weight of my children feels when they playfully lie on my stomach. That’s why I started writing about my life around them. But, pretty soon, I realized that I had to become a better person if I want to raise well rounded children. 

I started reading everything I could get my hands on to learn about life. I realized that I had to acknowledge my own dreams of winning the Nobel Prize if I want to empower my children to believe in themselves. I had to sustain my own goals before I could nurture their potential. I began writing everything down to turn this space into actionable advice for living an optimal life. 

If you’re looking to live a life of purpose, equip yourself with information. Together, let’s find ways to support each other on this journey. Let’s grow and help others grow. Let’s energize, elevate and empower our own destiny. This is our Future STRONG. 

Together we are Future STRONG.
