Experience has been my best teacher and source of my wisdom. My intention for this site is to share the insights, reflections and lessons from my experiences with the hope that the readers learn from them or be reminded of what they already know. I intend to focus on and highlight what I have learned and how I have grown from these experiences.
However, as I relate these incidents and stories of my life, it is inevitable that I talk about people, locations, organizations, and situations and some pertinent details. For their protection, I am keeping them anonymous or changing their names as I deem appropriate, unless specifying or identifying is essential to the story or there is no harm that will result from naming them.
But if you know me personally or if you are from my country of origin, you may recognize the personalities, groups, places or events. If there is anyone who may be offended in the process of my sharing, whether or not their names were specified, it is not intentional and I hope and trust that I will be forgiven.
My intention is to share my stories as I remember them to the best of my ability, and as I perceive and interpret them. Not everyone will see my life and the world through my lenses and not everyone will agree with me or even understand.
But I uphold the truthfulness of my stories and memories and the resultant insights and wisdom, as I speak my truth and continue my journey of Aligning With Truth.
