This week, we are making choices.

Over the past few weeks, my workload has increased exponentially with a new project I have taken on. It has been a while since I have taken a leadership role in a major event and I forgot how much time is required.

Balancing the work with ongoing commitments means I have less time available.

Over the coming months, you will notice some changes as I scale back and focus on the community newsletter and directory while serving our paid members.

My decision to accept an offer to produce the New.Now.Next media conference is a long term choice and it is in line with my ongoing support of editors and journalists who approach me for assistance with research and arranging interviews with our members.

Returning to my world of media for a brief visit fuels my passion. Building relationships with journalists around the region brings a new dimension to our impact.

With growing public interest in conscious living, this project makes makes sense.

The foundation of natural life in the fast lane is making the most of every choice.

You can explore mindfulness for yourself at Awakening of Love this weekend. We’re sponsoring a ticket and all you need to do is tell us why you or someone you love would like to attend.

And again we are reminded just how precious each day is as we bid farewell to our long-time member Laurence James Lucas who left us last week. On behalf of our community, I extend our deepest sympathy to Carey Vail. We have loved being witness to their love and the sense of loss is shared felt among many.

Our lifetime is a sum of the choices we make and having a sense of purpose makes daily decisions easier to make.

How does choice guide you?
