It’s often said that the shortest distance between two people is a story.  

The choice that we always have in a hotspot or place of discomfort is to learn.

We have the capacity to shift our stories anytime we want to. 

Patti’s award-winning blog, 37days.com, emerged from the lessons she learned by asking that question and soon the essays were crafted into the bestselling book LIFE IS A VERB: 37 Days to Wake Up, Be Mindful, and Live Intentionally. Patti has since written FOUR-WORD SELF-HELP: Simple Wisdom for Complex Lives, CREATIVE IS A VERB: If You’re Alive, You’re Creative, and WHAT I WISH FOR YOU: Simple Wisdom for a Happy Life.
