"Between stimulus and response there is space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom."  
                  -Viktor E. Frankl

Our greatest adventure along this transient soul-stop comes in our journey to be found. 

I've been lost. You’ve probably been lost too. We find ourselves as we journey, as our stories lay the stone steps of the paths we walk. Sometimes the paths we crawl.

It took a long time to understand how I live is my response to the world and to my life. Sounds like a duh, but so often we run off autopilot and never really get to know ourselves. When we do, it’s powerful and changes everything. 

My name is Heather and I'm a Hoosier living in the Lone Star with my hubs, Joe, our two bugs(kids) and two cats and one lizard and a bunch of fish and whatever spider my daughter happens to have trapped in a jar. I'm a nature nut and adventurer at heart. From my vantage - Hope to Houston, country to city, resignation to resilience, passion to purpose - Pensive Impulse is one of the spaces where I respond, to connect Mr. Whitman's gossamer threads of our humanity. Themes include self-discovery, failure and fear, chronic pain and compassion.  

Pensive Impulse is about excavating that marrow of spirit we each hold deep inside, that tenacity thing; demanding we never give up, keep going, onward-ho. It's about our shared navigation of the human condition and how we are each searching for the same thing - finding out who we are and acceptance of that person.  


Self-acceptance. Other-acceptance. 

In becoming found, inside the pulse of our substance, there is only one that truly matters.
