Purple is my favorite color and I am a nonprofit unicorn. This is our mantra and it works for life in general - "I am a nonprofit unicorn. I try each day to make the world better. I am good at some stuff, and I suck at some stuff, and that’s OK. There’s way more (stuff) than I can possibly do on any given day. On some days I am more productive than on other days, and that’s OK. I know sometimes there are things that I certainly could have done better. I know that I can’t make everyone happy or spend as much time as I could on everyone. I know there’s a bunch of (stuff) I don’t know. Sometimes I make mistakes, and that’s OK. I will try my best to learn and to improve, but I’ll also give myself a break."

I was formerly known as "Be-the-Change". I decided to start a new page for two reasons. The first was for a clean, fresh start. I have been a member since 2009 and there are too many reminders of what was. The second is related - I was going through my friends list and most of them are no longer active. It made me sad and a little discouraged, too. I am starting fresh with a new attitude!

    REFIT® is the cardio , toning and strength class I teach at the YMCA. We also do heart work the last 5 minutes of class where we hold pinkies and talk about our week and we come together as a class and lift and encourage one another. You can check out some of our choreo on Youtube. One of my favorites for arm toning is "Get Your Hands Up" Refit or "Chandelier" Refit. Wowzas!

    Hi Deb, I remember you from your past life! I've added you as a friend now. I recently watched a youtube video of someone who says they have visited Heaven. She says there are unicorns in Heaven. emoticon

    It's good to see you! Prayers for a blessed challenge! Let's get our 5%!
