It's been 5 yrs... Thank You for coming on this journey with me!

SHERO on Opportunity: 

Five years ago today I lost a friend who will always hold a very special place in my heart. Cancer conquered his body but his spirit is always here. Our conversations, attitude and altitude about life I will always cherish with the deepest and fondest of all my memories to date. Although I knew him for a very very short time I consider myself blessed for having known him for the time that I did. And that is what a SHERO does.. we do not look at what we don't have we APPRECIATE all that we have and had.. knowing that the cup is not half empty or half full.. it is always full... In those few years of friendship I learned more about myself and the world. In those few years I was able to formulate what the concept of SHERO is and with the hope of helping myself and others raise the bar of humanity and what we call interdependence. My greatest wish for all of us is that we move beyond any limitations or 'norms' that are imposed on us daily and move towards a constructive path. Yes, the road less traveled can be a very difficult and a challenging one but KNOW that you are not alone and that there are many people who wish the same constructive advancement in life as you do. Connect with others beyond the comfort of your safety zone, give to others, learn on a daily basis, take responsibility for your actions and re actions in life and last but not least make mistakes but don't let it stop you, let it challenge you to learn and grow and go some more... in other words.. be SHERO! For those who do not know the story of Arka & Takouhi pick up a copy of From Sheep to SHERO.. for those who do... thank you for coming on this journey with me!
