by Megan McDonough The stop sign seemed superfluous. Wherever I looked, the vastness extended to the horizon. The sunbaked Southwest prairie ended at towering red rock mesas. The blue sky came down to meet it, feeling higher and longer than the sky I’m used to in the forested Northeast. In this open emptiness filled with beauty, the red STOP! stood out.

by Lynda Wallace A few years ago, I made one of the best and most important decisions of my life, choosing to leave my corporate executive position to create a new career as a Positive Psychology Coach.
