      “The highest levels of performance come to people who are centered, intuitive, creative, and reflective - people who know to see a problem as an opportunity.” - Deepak Chopra   I’m very proud to have been chosen by Feedspot as 44 in their 45 Best Trauma Blogs to follow in 2021. For a new blogger with no social media presence or previous blogging experience, I’m delighted.
