Paradox #1: humor can create safety when we dive deep into our issues.

When I think of the most unhumorous guy, I think of my father. He missed out on the beauty of silliness, creative humor, and stepping outside yourself and dance in the moment - fly a kite, hang on to the string, and let the wind take you to new places.
“Humor is the good-natured side of a truth.” Quoted in Mark Twain and I, Opie Read
For a long time, I was like my dad. I missed amazing moments of discovery and curiosity while raising our two precious daughters.
And then, I was given another chance when seven of our grandchildren ‘refeathered’ our nest.
Now life is full. I’ve discovered the wonder of fun and humor. I’ve discovered new perspectives and a renewed understanding of who I am.
I coach to help others know who they are. And become all they want to be.
