About Autumn

Bio

[attended TEDxPhilly 2011] i think too much. always been my greatest gift and my worst. i love people, all people. i think having an open mind and open heart will open the world to you. i believe in being who you are and embracing what is challenging in life. i believe in being wrong. i believe in learning from those times. i believe in acknowledging that for the same reason you are you, there are people who are not. people wrong you, making their life negative but it does not need to make your life go that direction. finding the answer to a problem starts with knowing there is always a way. it may or may not be the way you wanted but it's a way and you can learn to make the most of it. if you can laugh when strangers are short, rude, bad drivers ect. if you can laugh not at them but laugh and acknowledge a time you felt like that and adjust your manner to the way that would have lifted your spirits, you too will feel lifted. happiness is contagious and we all need a little encouragement once in a while. i do not believe in pity. it is unproductive. i believe i am the same as anybody else. understanding if someone does something i do not believe in, it is not my life, it's theirs therefore i can not place judgement & wouldn't. i am no better because as it is, life is relative. i believe in people. i believe in music. i believe in laughter dancing smiling and being.

Areas of Expertise

Nurse Advocacy, Engaging people in my community, Encouraging curiousity

An idea worth spreading

When everything has been discovered. Every road travelled. Every word written. Every note played. Every voice spoken. How can we strive for more without experiencing the discoveries, walking the roads, reading the words, hearing the music, challenging the sentences. How can we know without trying everything.

I'm passionate about

learning, engaging every human being to be more aware of themselves and perhaps influencing them into making changes towards a happier life. I believe wellness is the only way to view illness.

Talk to me about

State of education, raising children, how people respond to illness; what motivates people, engages them. Living a balanced life, how the mind works, medicine, the state of the health in the US

People don't know I'm good at

Sewing & DIY projects (ok maybe not good but I love tinkering)

My TED story

I needed to expand my capacity to change, to produce change... i walked into the bookstore and what i saw were a million books by people who don't know what they are doing here but they knew if someone could read the lines between. someone could feel the reason to believe... we could come together [the universal language of the world speaks between the lines and under the fonts]

What life lessons has being a parent afforded you? What have you learned from a child/children in your life?
I agree. . . a quote that verbalizes this truth so well Respect is not fear and awe; it...[is]the ability to see a person as he is, to be aware of his unique individuality. Respect, thus, implies the absence of exploitation. I want the loved person to grow and unfold for his own sake, and in his own ways, and not for the purpose of serving me. [Eric Fromm]

Does it happen to you that things you were thinking of became a part of your daily lives?
When the reason you choose to do only this one 'intervention' (positive thinking to cure cancer) you have to be more aware of the reason you are making this decision. A keen sense of self and what fullfills you is really at the heart of 'the secret'. I do believe when you pursue your lifes passion/purpose your dreams are attainable and it can appear the universe conspires to help you achieve your goals. If this woman was truly in touch with her self and in tune with what I call her higher self, she may have realized her desire to believe in the secret resulted from fear of the other treatment options. Anything that is done from fear of something else will never breed the desired result.

Janine Shepherd: A broken body isn't a broken person
I have to disagree with you Kyle, because I believe there is nothing more limiting than a broken spirit . . . If this whole idea that life can be more meaningful after a profound loss strikes you as incomprehendable and you'd like to try and see the other side of the grass then I suggest reading Viktor Frankl's book "Man's Search for Meaning". I understand not being able to see things this way, because our worldview is limited by our own experiences and I have not lived your life- nor have you finished living yours.

Amy Cuddy: Your body language shapes who you are
RE: I also suspect my body language may also affect mood specifically depression, are their any studies on how body language behavior affect depression? Tony Robbins talks a lot about how he believes it does and how just changing your body language will snap you out of a pattern and change your attitude

Amy Cuddy: Your body language shapes who you are
This is how I got through nursing school : ) faked it till I became it . . . I kept the following quote by Corra Harris in the back of mind and it truly works whether it was starting my first IV or my latest adventures in skydiving When you are not brave, the bravest thing you can do is profess courage and act accordingly
