My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Your body is your temple and live by your heart.
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. During my TV segments, I have to be very cautious about the word "absolutely." It's my go-to word that's fancier than "yes"...but I can absolutely use it too often, absolutely.
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. Oh yes, let's start with a super light-hearted question. This is honestly difficult to write: the death of a child. I have chills.
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. My greatest achievement is in progress. I'd love to get back to you on this one: after my kids are accepted to colleges AND I've managed to save enough to fund their tuitions! But if I can manage to live each day fully, present and aware of my actions and interactions with those around me, then that's the daily work that applies towards a greater whole.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Watching my children play and nap at an isolated beach, where the sun warms the skin while we eat ice cream cones, watch dad surf in the distance and decorate sand castles (more like sand mounds) with feathers, shells and sticks.
