Jill Short

For what in your life do you feel most grateful?
I am most grateful for my family—my husband, children, grandchildren, mother and sister—and for God’s unconditional love and mercy in my life. Everyday is a gift and I am thankful for my unique path and purpose.

What is the biggest change you want to make in your life?
The biggest change I want to make in my life is to learn, in a deeper way, to walk in inner confidence and joy.

What do you think is the best feeling in the world?
Feeling safe, loved and needed are definitely way up there on my list of best feelings; but I believe the BEST feeling in the world comes from a heart that is at peace.

What was the single, best realization you have ever had?
The single best “aha” moment of my life was when I realized I was free to develop my own “magic” and to love myself for who I am. This realization allowed me to celebrate my life like never before and to pursue my dream to not only help the world be a better place, but also to continue to become a better, kinder, more powerful and confident woman than I was yesterday.

What sound do you love?
I love the sound of a full house when all my grown kids are in town for a visit, the blast of fighter jets overhead, screams from a rollercoaster, authentic old-fashioned merry-go-round music, and night-frogs in the summertime.
