A little over a year ago, I made a fairly big life decision, and left my job as a teacher in order to follow my dreams. It has been a whirlwind of adventures, learning, and growing. The past year has been one of the hardest and most challenges ones I've experienced thus far. I have learned so much more about myself, others, and the world in these past months.
I went from a world of teaching preschool which involved singing songs, wiping snotty noses, and referring to the bathroom as the potty. And entered a world of html-coding, linky parties, and social media to no end. Not to mention, my eyes and heart were open to a beautiful community that I've encountered here on the internet.
I've packed up my suitcase and gotten on more planes that I ever thought I could bare. I've learned to find courage, and it has lead me to some incredible places. I've met some of the most inspirational people who encourage me daily.
There are times where I've had to close my eyes and just leap and have faith on the way down.
I've learned to get back up after every failure, and have discovered that you truly are stronger when you come back fighting for what you believe in and your dreams.
