Why I’m Grateful for My Childhood

When I attended Landmark Forum in Q1 2014 one of my biggest takeaways, was the recognition through the contrast of my fellow attendees’ stories, that I had no major unresolved childhood trauma.

My childhood was not perfect. I don’t know if that’s possible. But I was incredibly loved, supported, and nurtured physically, emotionally and intellectually; and essentially unscathed and unscarred.

I was given and gifted a beautiful, solid foundation from which to live my life and grow into a man.

I’m a deep practitioner of Vajrayana Buddhism. And it is a deeply held tenet of the lineage that we choose our parents.

This is just one of the many reasons why I chose my family.

Thank you to my Mom Peggeth Loeb, my Dad Jeff Marmer, my twin sisterZoe Marmer, and my brother and our beloved Golden Retriever Casey, who passed on in 2010.

So much love and gratitude.
