You are not here to be GOOD,
You are here to be BETTER...
Reclaiming hope purpose and fulfillment

in a world gone crazy. 

My Story

When I was 30 years old, I realized that there was more to life than the all-consuming pursuit of acquiring “things”. Often it takes a “wake-up” call for most of us to make serious changes in our lives. We typically go through life refusing to see, self-medicating or keeping so busy that we can’t think or feel. My “wake-up” call was the early death of my beloved father and becoming a divorced single mom.


I was married for 13 years and felt like I was going nowhere personally, professionally, spiritually and emotionally. I felt adrift in my marriage, and I didn’t have a profession I loved to fall back on to fill the void.

I wasn’t one of those people who always knew what they wanted to be. I had no idea what my purpose in life was. I had an inkling that I liked working with and teaching people so I got my first degree in sociology. I tried to fill up the yawning, empty hole in my life with so many different things. I got my second degree in teaching and continued on to pursue extensive graduate work at Florida Atlantic University’s Department of Educational Leadership and Research Methodology.


I kept myself so busy, “unconscious”, so that I didn’t have to think about how miserable my life was. It got to a point where running away and avoiding reality was no longer an option. I could no longer numb my pain. Looking back, I’m tremendously grateful to a friend who suggested that I go to a transformational workshop where I ended up meeting a group of like-minded people, on a quest to better their lives. That was a pivotal moment in my life that defined the course that the next 25 years of my life would take.

Many people don’t have a clue as to what their life’s purpose is, nor what their next steps should be to attain it. This appears to be a universal and demoralizing problem.

“The world was created for humanity’s use. In truth humanity is the center of a great balance. If it is consumed by the selfish and taking aspects of its nature, it becomes damaged, and the world gets damaged too. And if humanity unites itself with the Higher Power (the source of enduring fulfillment), humanity is uplifted and the world is uplifted too.”

Moshe Chayim Luzzatto
