I am a fairly adaptable person. Have always needed to be. I’ve lived abroad. I’ve lived at boarding school. I’ve lived in cities that were hard to get around considering that I can’t drive. I’ve worked in toxic environments. I’ve worked in very mission-minded positions. All this to say that I have had to be flexible if I wanted to maintain my sanity.
Now being flexible is not necessarily the same as being grounded. However, for me they have gone hand-in-hand. And, for many it has been quite noticeable. I often receive accolades for being so grounded considering my roles as a “boss” or speaker.
I don’t quite understand what people mean when they note I’m grounded. I do know I try to be humble and remember my journey.
Sometimes, though, when I’m up high I look down and wonder about groundedness and how it is important. Whatever it is, I do hope I maintain that quality forever more.

We See Our Breath As Limitless Life Now
And Of Course Breaths of The Rest of Existence
True Mountain High Valley Low Already Arriving This is HoME NoW..;)
