Why do I want to feature an inspirational person in my newsletter?

I want to feature people like Laura who have crossed my path and touched my life, inspiring me toward greatness. Too many of us fail to see greatness in ourselves. Somehow, it doesn’t seem to matter what we have achieved; we often need others to point out to us how we excel. People display “greatness” by their attitude, their lifestyle, their choices, their actions… I want to recognize the people in my life who lead by example.

How did I meet Laura?

I’ve met Laura when I moved to Pacific Gardens Cohousing Community. Laura been living there for a few years and was moving out as we were moving in. Right when I met her I was touch by her nurturing and calming energy. Then I kept seeing her all over town biking everywhere. Laura is definitely walking the talk in so many ways. She is a beautiful soul and believer. She currently teach Yoga classes at Wellness studio and Om town Yoga.
