If You Only Had This Moment

November 26, 2019


It’s a powerful question to ask yourself. We are not guaranteed anything more than right now…so, what if this is that moment?

Who would call you right now?

I’ll make it easy.

This person makes you laugh.

I bet just thinking about him or her brings a smile to your face. 

In the spirit of gratitude, I’m going to level-up my request and ask what it is about this person that makes you feel grateful. 

 I love this quote from Albert Schweitzer–

“At times, our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” 

At the core of what I do, much of it is motivated by having lost a lot of time and I don’t want others to take the same path, rather learn from my experience and take this short cut I have brought to you.

Keep your heart open and get out of your own way and step into your aliveness versus rehashing your circumstances and shutting down. 

For me, this year was one of being called. First to do the online series and then to write the book. 

There were moments where I was sure it was not possible, and yet, it has surpassed any notion I had for what is possible. 

As the series came together, I was so grateful for the 23 extraordinary speakers that I had the divine opportunity to cross paths with and to create “Rising Above Adversity”, sharing how to live full out with Courage, Power and Grace no matter what you’re navigating.  

This series brought each of you into my life, now that is something to be grateful for!!

I am blessed. I am going to be starting a Podcast in 2020 and I am going to be contacting many of YOU to join me in sharing your inspiring stories of courage, resilience and grace which light the way for us all.

I’m grateful for sixty-five strangers who would become friends. We met in the sunshine of San Diego to lift the deepest clouds from our past and change the trajectory of our lives. 

And then, as if I did not have enough to be grateful for this year it was with gratitude and joy that we released LIVE NOW and Russ Symmes’s (my husband) legacy is now in the world.  His mantra, Carpe Diem, never give up no matter what you are facing.

Lastly, I am grateful for my grandmother whose favorite holiday was Thanksgiving. She died this past April at the age of 100, 7 months and 20 days. As her namesake I will continue to honor her legacy by living full out!

With gratitude and love,

Happy Thanksgiving,


P.S. Reach out, call that person today!
