​December 3rd was an important day for my family. It was the

International Day of Persons with Disability.

I wrote a blog for this day titled: Different – Not less.

People who have “hiccups” like my daughter Sarina says, need us to support them to reach a life of BELONGING not ISOLATION. Or like Helen Keller said… together we can do so much….

The blog was published by The Wellness Universe, a fabulous platform you have heard me mention offering everything we can learn about  MInd-Body-Spirit-Planet. Through them, my message is available to over 100k visitors each month.

I have been invited to be a core blogger for them and will do so starting in January with at least one blog or blog series published every months. Can you imagine how happy I am to have a platform like this sharing my writing and my story?

Writing has become my second passion besides yoga and mindfulness on and off the mat. Both of them work hand in hand. Both of them fuel my wish to be well and resilient despite the challenges I face with raising and living with our special daughter Sarina.

They both support my passion as a teacher as they let me share my tools with you… one breath, one word at a time!

I’d be thrilled if you have a moment to read my  blog for two reasons:

  1. Awareness of how to make a difference in the life of people you meet who are not like us. As I’m sure you know, they don’t have to come from the disability world only – they show up in our lives on a daily basis from all walks of life … Being kind, understanding and forgiving helps all.
  2. Support for my young career as an author. Your feedback following reading my blog at WU means a lot to me. It establishes not only my credibility but also shows there is an audience curious to learn what I share.​
