INSPIRE Me: Danielle Paige

I really believe that the energy we put out into the world comes back to us. Well… I guess I must be doing SOMETHING right to have so many wonderful, talented, generous people to brighten my world, enliven my spirit, and make me a better person for knowing them. SO. In an effort to “pay it forward”, I am going to pass my good fortune on to YOU, and create a blog series called “INSPIRE me” to introduce you to one of these incredible people each installment. I hope you enjoy their talents and gifts and spirit as much as I have!

A Leap of Faith

I just finished re-reading “the alchemist”, a book which always touches my soul on a profound level…. reminding me that we are all capable of great & limitless miracles.  In my life, i have always done my very best to follow my heart.  Sometimes, this has caused a great deal more anguish than ecstasy, but […]

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  This morning, January 1, I woke up feeling…. different.  (And not simply because I had imbibed an inordinate amount of pink champagne at various NYE festivities, and kissed a few friends (and maybe even one or two strangers) last night as the ball dropped)…..  Different, because I know that today is a […]
