I must say, of all the cyber places you could have ended up, i’m certainly glad you chose to be here. Viewing my site is best accompanied by your choice of beverage; i recommend sweet tea, hazelnut macchiato, or prosecco. That, and 80's music, preferably from the breakfast club soundtrack.

The Good Things and The Hard Things

June 13, 2014

They say sometimes the hardest things and the right things are the same.

For me, this is today.

I walked into my classroom this morning to greet my families, and was met with hugs, cards, tears, and wishes of success for my future and my business. I am sad to be leaving my little friends for the summer because truth be told, I love them. They are wild and crazy, but they are three and they have taught me to look at the world with hope and wonder. And they give the best hugs. And they love unconditionally. And they sing me silly songs and tell me I’m their hero and make my heart melt. So there’s that.

There are moments when the universe throws you a giant, audible sign, “Go, do this. I paved this way for you and now you are here. Do this thing I have called you to do.” One of my parents gave me some handwritten kindness and love this morning, saying how admirable it is as a creative to leave the comfortable and do the thing I was made to do.

If there was ever a time, it’s now.
