Teaching.
More often than not, it's
thankless, unappreciated, and incredibly misunderstood work.
Especially in the world of inclusive ("special") education.
But as much as I rag on my own job sometimes, I'm pretty damn grateful for the privilege and the responsibility of working with children. They are so present in their raw and unjaded experiences of continual discovery, tending to approach with curiosity, rather than fear. I've said it before, I know, but I'm reminded again and again by these amazing little humans -- expectations ground us, but it's our openness to the unexpected that really shakes up our world and inspires us.

If you're not inspired by other people's greatness, perhaps it's because you're not breathing life into your own 🌱

Happy Mama's Day to this fiercely compassionate woman, the glue and the heart of our little family. She's the embodiment of strength, kindness and encouragement.
Grateful for all she teaches me 🌹

It's easier to love a person with their flaws than to weed through them.
Not saying it's always easy, but it can be simple: to trust without thinking, to be generous with affection and patience -- to love the whole person, wholeheartedly.

So, yesterday was my last day being 27 years old...everything between the lovely early morning wake up and falling asleep to the sounds of a spring thunderstorm was about as close to perfect a day as one could get. I am incredibly grateful for the kind, inspiring, thoughtful, sexy and important people in my life, and the beautiful places where I get to soak up their wonderful company.
Been reflecting this 28th birthday morning on these last few very busy, intense years, and feelin' now more than ever that connection is what it's all about -- to self, to each other, to purpose, to place...cheers to slowing down and making the time to love love love it up. 🎈

Life will always check you. But fear is not the enemy, and the belief that it is will absolutely control your life. Perhaps we have to look at it differently, feel our fears, intimately, and use our fears to set us free.
Maybe that means running toward the things that scare you the most. For me, it's things like being in a relationship, teaching children, leading adults, giving up control...it's taking chances and bigger risks to outdo my perceived thoughts of the impossible. To live in such a way that my self-talk goes from "not for me" to "why not me?". The more I move toward fear, the less it controls, halts.
Turns out, this fear is neither good nor bad, it just is. Taking a good hard look into our lives, we can begin to tease apart the remote-effects of why we do things the way we do, and offer up how we can change the things and patterns that no longer grow us.
One of my biggest challenges was moving through old beliefs that I was not meant to live a life outside of generational patterns. I pursued an education and career path beyond what's been expected of me (I'm just a simple, pretty young gal from the valley, right?). I don't quit, and that sometimes scares the shit outta me. I feared my success, thought I had to play it small, be humble.
Lessening yourself for the comfort of others, though, is handing over your power; that is not humility.
Life will always check you, and it will require you to go into the unknown and get wildly uncomfortable. Try new ways to connect. Uncover new possibilities.
To humble yourself is to be in your power, recognizing every person in his/her own big-ness.
May we love and lift each other, loving up our fears.
#wholeheartedly

yes, i miss it
no, not moving back

We all think we're going to be great, and we feel a little bit robbed when our expectations aren't met.
But sometimes our expectations sell us short. Sometimes the expected simply pales in comparison to the unexpected. You've gotta wonder why we cling to our expectations, because the expected is just what keeps us steady.
Standing.
Still.
The expected is just the beginning -- the unexpected is what changes our lives.
