Yes, I may be in prison, but I possess a limitless freedom to choose what I think about. I am continuously creating healthy and positive conditions for my everyday life here in prison. Waking up at 4:30am, I start my day with a giant smile and a cold glass of water. I look for every opportunity to say thank you to others, including myself.
I spend time reading, writing, and applying fresh ideas by pumping the bellows of my inner creative fire. One of the notes to self hanging from my cork board: Desire what reputation you want ten years from now, and then grow to fit it one element at a time. Build your reputation intentionally!
Written on my mirror in Purple w/ Black boarder: I Am A Uniquely Gifted UW Student.
Nothing can ultimately confine or limit you. New thoughts create new conditions. Happy high-five Friday everyone!
Love with laughter,

I've spent 15 years dedicated to finding inner peace, empowering my sobriety and channeling positive outlooks since incarceration. I have over 200 hours devoted to nonviolent communication studies and have helped teach hundreds of others to practice these calming techniques. Eastern philosophies and yoga have become a way of understanding for me and I've worked closely with multiple organizations who extend this knowledge behind bars. I'm an enthusiastic public speaker and have 5 years of leadership practices with Toastmasters International. I've conquered my math anxiety and earned an Associates's Degree in Business Management. I'm a peer reentry counselor, a math tutor, a 12-Step sponsor, and a source of inspiration for those who struggle to find their purpose in life. I'm a dedicated disaster who plans on continuing my education after release and spreading the message about capturing the beauty in life through life coaching. The power is in all of us
