Oh, Hi!


Who am I?
I am a work in progress.

Four years ago two amazing things happened: 1) I started rock climbing and 2) I started seeing Dale, my mentor/therapist/now friend. Whatever else I can say about life at that time, I can say that perfectly, those things happened exactly when I needed them to and I was exactly in the place I needed to be for them to matter as much as they did. With climbing I embraced my strength; physical, mental, and emotional. With Dale I learned to embrace me. The most important thing she ever told me was in that first year when I was struggling with the question “Who am I?” She said simply:

Who you are is nothing more than the choice you make in the next moment

So simple. So profound. And so, every day with every breath I choose who I am.
