Between You & Me


I am a writer, speaker, idealist, dreamer, Life Coach - a gypsy at heart - here to share and learn, inspire and be inspired.

If I follow the Native American tradition of choosing my own name, then I am "WyndSpirit".

I don’t feel the need to belong anywhere, yet wherever I go, I feel at home.
I am a traveler.

The Road Less Traveled - Photo by Masuda Floyd

This is a trail I often walk on. It’s around 5 1/2 miles, by the time I walk to the trail head, walk the trail and back. I took this picture during Spring one year. This spot always reminds me of the “Road less traveled” and that bend makes me imagine about all the possibilities, the journey, the adventure, the wonder that lies right around the corner…I am a gypsy at heart and all roads fascinate me! 🙂

Life Coach: As my life evolved, I transitioned into becoming a Certified Professional Coach.

My Passion: My passion is traveling and learning about people and their beliefs and cultures and connecting with them at a spiritual level.

Favorite Quotes:

In the end we only regret the chances we didn't take, the relationships we were too afraid to have and the decisions we waited too long to make.

"A traveler am I and a navigator, and every day I discover a new region within my soul." ~ Kahlil Gibran

"It may be that the satisfaction I need depends on my going away, so that when I've gone and come back, I'll find it at home." ~ Rumi

“The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.” ~Rumi

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference." ~Robert Frost

“I’ve lived a life that’s full
I’ve traveled each and ev’ry highway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way.” ~ Frank Sinatra

If you think you can do it -
or you think you can't -
you're absolutely right.

Dare to fail.

It's not what you've got - it's what you do with it.

“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.” ~Dr. Seuss
