Talk about creating the life you want – no matter the circumstances . . . Kris Carr’s story is so inspiring I wanted to share it with you on the first day of spring, which is a great time for all of us to think about the possibility of new directions in our lives. Here are a few excerpts from her web page:
“I’m Kris Carr, New York Times best-selling author and wellness warrior. On Valentine’s Day in 2003, I was diagnosed with a rare and incurable stage 4 cancer. This whiskey tango foxtrot moment (that’s military lingo for WTF?!) sparked a deep desire in me to stop holding back and start living like I mean it! I sold everything and hit the road on a deep healing pilgrimage. What I learned transformed my life forever – now it can transform yours. . . . “
” . . . My wake-up call encouraged me to make a total lifestyle upgrade inside and out. It taught me how to listen to my brilliant inner guidance, brought me back to nature (my church), the garden and the people and animals who set my heart ablaze.”
Kris created a film of her journey and has since written 3 books. For a boost of belief in the power each of us has to determine how we live our destiny – check out this video of Kris on Oprah’s “Super Soul Sunday”. It’s my favorite, and applies to each and every one of us. It’s under 5 minutes, please make time for it in your life. If you are really slammed go right to the 3:10 point, and listen as she shares her life altering thoughts.
