20 Questions With Yours Truly


I think of all my Twinki-Winki customers as warriors.

Because I see them doing the hard work of being kind to themselves. Feeling good enough to like yourself requires a whole lot of honesty, compassion, and guts.

It takes a warrior-like attitude to protect yourself from your own self-criticizing.

I look to my customers for inspiration. Because they know that being a Twinki-Winki Warrior is about living with joy. They remind me that:

• The best way to love life is to love yourself.
• The best way to thank life is to be authentic.
• The best way to experience life is to feel worthy.

And so I’ll be sharing with you a series of Twinki-Winki Warrior Interviews. It’s a game of 20 Questions. Today I’ll share my own answers to start things off. Smile.
