A little about me and why I do what I do. I was born with kidney disease due to a birth defect, diagnosed with autoimmune thyroid disease at a young age and then diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Addison's disease. I was in and out of intensive care for sometime and my next of kin was called while I was having "a close call" with life.
Among other things, I have survived being hit by a drunk driver in which I spent nearly a year working to get back my mobility. In addition, I spent years on dialysis and am grateful to have received a successful kidney transplant.
As a result of my personal, professional and educational journeys; my love in life is thinking about thinking, also called metacognition. Along with metacognition, I am a practitioner of energy cultivation and management.
My physical, mental and energetic journeys have taught me the value of integration. Incorporating the bold art of metacognition gives the ultimate freedom of choice of thought.
Do your thoughts choose you or do you choose them?
It is freeing to move swiftly and easily through life. While easily being able to recognize, assess and observe situations and self simultaneously. Then action, or inaction, come naturally.
A huge misconception about metacognition it that it's always thinking about our thinking. The truth is, that it's thinking in an efficient way and sometimes not thinking is a thinking tactic.
Part of my own cognitive development is being an award winning speaker at Toastmasters International and choosing my thought partners. Some of which include the International Association of Facilitators, the International Coaching Federation and the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching.
