Cruising On a Sunny Afternoon

christmas clique 1127

I had the unique opportunity recently to go on a wellness dream vacation organized by Cruise One (Glenn & Associates, Brown. Maria Shiver said, “If you’d like to set your course on being more courageous and connected, engaged and resilient, leave the GPS at home. Daring Greatly (course book) is all the navigation you’ll need.”

It is my belief, while on this adventure, we forged potential lifelong connections enhancing our feelings of love and belonging. We learned new skills and redefined old hurtful beliefs in order to embrace life in a wholehearted way and see vulnerability as essential to having a brave and courageous life.

You are encouraged to start saving now; there will be 2 or 3 cruise dates next year where you too can make a positive change in your life by joining the Daring Way group. Having lived with complex chronic disease for many years and struggling with significant pain, fatigue, and heart and joint damage; this course was a game changer for me. Get the book and scan through it, I feel sure you will find yourself reading every word. In addition, go to her Ted Talks on YouTube (ex: Power of Vulnerability), you’ll be hooked by Brene’s charm and caring delivery of her pioneering research on vulnerability and courage.

Susan Hart, a Certified Daring Way Facilitator, led us on a bold journey of self-discovery. She is a nationally certified, Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Supervisor. You can learn more about Susan at  Make the decision to investigate the Daring Way, you won’t regret it.

This is an opportunity to seriously consider — make time for you. Be kind to yourself and disconnect from your everyday life for a few days. You have a right to live life boldly, to be loved, and feel connected. Learn how to show up, be seen, and live a braver life!
