I’ve been a teacher for as long as I can remember. One of my greatest lessons is the best solutions are the simplest ones.
Each day, I make time to explore nature. I take wordless walks and find my sit spot in my garden. Years ago, I wandered through a labyrinth among leaves and vines. It was here, etched in a plaque at the base of an iron bench, that I found my inspiration:
“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
– Mary Oliver
Tears came to my eyes and my heart opened. I knew it was time to make a deeper change. I noticed the birds, the flowers, the sunlight on the leaves. I listened, not only to the wind rustling through the trees, but also to myself. I found stillness and relief, knowing I had arrived exactly where I was meant to be.
I learned to trust my journey. When I honestly looked at my fears and doubts, I realized I was far braver and more talented than I had ever given myself credit for. I have traveled the length of the Appalachian Trail, from Georgia to Maine. I dance in the moonlight with friends in the streets of New Orleans. I come home each day to my loving husband and my cats irresistibly playing in our garden.
My purpose is helping people discover their own path. We live in a place of beauty. Join me to begin living your one wild and precious life.
