Happy Pride to my LGBTQ+ family!

June 1, 2021

Hello friends,

Happy Pride to my LGBTQ+ family!

Welcome to HeartMindSolutions’ Blog. I am so excited to meet you here!

I believe that we can truly change our life when we take the time to open our mind and connect with our heart.

I am Dr. Simone Kotraba, I have many roles, however, I am going to share only a few here for now. I have over two decades of experience in education and leadership. I worked as a school leader, professor, teacher, etc. As we journey together, we will learn more about each other. My life’s purpose has taken me through many hills and valleys. However, I know that I am now in the right place as a teacher, mentor and coach. Today, I became a blogger and podcast host!

I am a proud mom to 7yrs old twins, Manya and Cyrus, and wife to Kirsten. My family and I live outside of Boston, MA. Here is a picture of us in Amsterdam at Pride!

In this introductory blog, you will learn the intention of this blog, what you will gain from reading, my ‘why' and when you can expect a new post.

The Intention of this blog:

Let's activate our hearts and minds together and discover our genius powers within! I am going to take you by the hand and walk with you and share many of the important lessons and practices that I have learned from my mentors. Many of whom are no longer in physical form. However, their work has had a tremendous impact on my life and in the lives of others.

We are on this journey together to be self-actualized individuals and celebrate the uniqueness of each other. "According to Abraham Maslow, "self-actualizing people have a deep feeling of identification, sympathy, and affection for human beings in general. They feel kinship and connection, as if all people were members of a single family." This quote expresses my intentions and deep desire for connecting with you in this blog.

What you will gain from reading my blogs:

My intention for you is that the information shared on this platform will stir up something in you that allows you to shine your light. I will be sharing some simple yet powerful tools on how you can activate your heart and mind to change your LIFE! So you can live from a place of creation, compassion, appreciation, peace and prosperity.

Why am I here?
