As I approach the magnificent milestone of FYNELY & FABULOUSLY FORTY this June, I am continuing my commitment to causes and purposes greater than myself.

In the words of Mahatma Gandhi and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr….

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others” – Mahatma Gandhi

“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

As I continue to find myself and start living over and over again, I want that life to continue to include serving others…over and over again!
