On Mind Power & Beyond

Why I’m honored to speak in Canada as an American

I’m an American with Autism. I was diagnosed at 2 years old. I remember not speaking for the first few years of my life as many individuals with a form of Autism can’t do so. But when I could start speaking, I could talk up a storm. Going to school was hard for me. I…

My Friend Harry

Friendships are the signposts and scenery on this journey we call life and while some happen for a reason, season or lifetime, you may be lucky enough to have one that provided all three. My friend Harry was one of those rare gifts. He was a charmer who lit up a room and could also…

Staying in the game

To feel the moment, be in the moment and be grateful of this moment is what I try to get to. I have one more day of life to make a difference, to lift myself up and be of some account. Having gratitude has pulled me through, even for the small things, and when I…
