Why you are interested in spirituality? Spirituality is what keeps me grounded and connected to what's real and important, while living in a world of constant chaos. 

Your favorite quote: “To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering, one must not love. But then, one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.” - Woody Allen

 Your favorite web sitesMercola.com (for health);  Zenhabits.net/ (for spirit/ilfe), Theoatmeal.com (for laughter)

Your hero? The people who make it through the hardships of life with grace and gratitude.

A spiritual lesson you hope to learn? The present moment really is all we have, so why spend so much time jumping into the future and the past?
