Life in Fast Forward

As I walk through the Atlanta airport heading towards my 6th flight in four days, everyone around me seems to be moving in fast forward. I have my music on loud and I take the time to observe the various faces around me. I am literally in my own music video as they zoom by me….

The question: “Anna, how did you find your happy?”

Two weeks ago, I was asked by a long time friend this question… “How did you FIND your HAPPY?” I knew the fast and simple answer was that I had to be BRAVE. Yes indeed, I had to be BRAVE. But this is a question that I stared at and went back to almost daily since I…

My Valentine!

To all of my Fuel The Soul friends, I appreciate and love you all. “Because everything of value that we will know in this life comes from our relationships with those around us.
