These mountains have always handed me lessons. The first time I moved here about 13 years ago I was handed a painful lesson in all the things I didn’t want in my life. I was surrounded by people who spoke another language and instead of turning myself inside out to understand who and what they were about, I surrendered. I turned my energies over to the winning side. I shrugged my shoulders and poured my energy into myself to find out what I wanted and who I wanted to be. Out of that challenge, so many beautiful relationships and life changes were born.
