Hi, my name is Michele and I have created this blog as a forum for those who have embarked on a life change, like I recently have, and need added inspiration to motivate them through the journey. I have experienced several major life changes over the last seven years, and through each of them, I have kept pushing through and moving forward, taking care of what and who I need to take care of, which usually hasn’t included taking care of my own creative pursuits.
After pouring all my passion and purpose into teaching high school students for several years, I made the difficult decision last spring to step away from the experience and give myself more time to cultivate other passions – passions that have been whispering to me for many years, but I haven’t had the time or courage to act upon. My decision to leave the high school classroom was not easy; I feel called to teach and on purpose when I can help other people, but the sixty+ hour work weeks left little time or energy for much else. So, I have taken steps to begin creating a “new” life for myself. I am working on rediscovering facets of my life and interests that have been buried, while also exploring meaningful paths that still allow me to teach, contribute, grow and ultimately flourish.
I am finding that the journey to discover a new path, a new way of moving in the world, is much harder than I ever could have imagined, because I am not looking for a quick fix, or a diversion, I am working on real change, at the core of who I am, and what I believe I am capable of accomplishing, and that is where the real work begins. I will share my weekly challenges and triumphs through this journey and share original photography, inspiring quotes, stories, videos, and interviews centered around people who are striving for positive change, both in their own lives and in their communities.
