Brave. When you think about brave, what comes to mind? Ghandi? Martin Luther King, Jr.? A military hero (lots of those!) Someone who defeats their personal demons? What is the most courageous thing you’ve ever seen? What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done?
Refreshing. Inspiring. That’s what it was like in 2010 when Maureen shared her strengths view of the world with me. From this window, I saw new possibilities.

Last week we marveled over the perils of an Uncle Jerry in your world – those people, harsh words, or circumstances that pull us away from our center.
