Welcome to my new home. My vision for this is a place of inspiration and growth. I am a former high school teacher, current adjunct faculty member at a community college teaching Criminal Justice and Graduate Advising Coordinator at a university advising all graduate students in Education. I am also a wife, mother of 2 amazing kids, sister, daughter, friend, musician, and Crossfit enthusiast. I have done a little of everything through the years, and am finally finding what I feel is my place to land at 36 years old. I like to push myself beyond what others think I can do, and I tend to break open the boxes in which people like to categorize me. I like to think that I am a realist that looks at things logically, but I know sometimes that doesn’t happen. One of my goals in life has always been to make the world better and influence people, so this is going to be my little way of contributing. I don’t know exactly what that is going to look like, but my guess is that it will be a mixture of humor, inspiration, and real life stories. One of my favorite quotes has always been
and that is where the title of my blog comes from. I truly hope this becomes a place of inspiration and enjoyment for others. At the very least, it will be a place for the random acts of life that pop up all the time. Until next time, I will leave you with this thought. It is one that I have found myself clinging to through many times when I felt like the world was shattering and falling down around me.
