When I turned sixty I was floored at how young I felt. The fact that I have maybe thirty more years on this good earth?! That’s a whole Third Age and one I am not going to waste counting birthdays! My vow turning sixty was to live life fearlessly—to work through obstacles of all kinds, and to speak my heart's truth to others, and especially, to myself—no matter what. In the spirit of paying it forward, I’ve got some stories to tell and wisdom to share. I’m no one special. I’m not a celebrity, or a billionaire, or even someone who enjoys the spotlight. After a remarkable vertigo susto, a shock to my system, I find myself on the best kind of journey—a spiritual one—and no matter what I do to try and squelch the desire to share (trust me, it would be so much easier NOT to put myself out here) I receive daily nudges from the universe to fulfill my life’s purpose: to live life in my highest daily good and to spread a little light and love. If my stories comfort or inspire at least one soul, then my goal for SpiritScout will be met.
