I am:

Intent on living life to the fullest. I am always trying to expand my horizons and test my comfort zone. I am not afraid to make difficult decisions and go against the grain if I feel that it is the best option for my life. And I still have a lot of time to work on my intention, since I am only eighteen! :P

My passion is for:

Leaving a legacy that lasts. I want to make a mark on the world through my music, my writing, my choices, and my life.

My business helps you:

Realize your full potential and accept yourself. I write and sing about my personal experiences in the hopes that it can help others overcome their fears and inspire them to live their dreams.

My biggest challenge is:

Accepting my faults and shortcomings. Although I have improved tremendously, I still struggle to accept every aspect of myself. It is an ongoing process, but I am well on my way at least.
Managing my time. I tend to think too much and act too little. It becomes overwhelming, as I constantly think that I should do more and more with the same amount of time.

I make a difference by:

Living life. I believe that my choices and actions will serve as inspiration for many others as I progress on my journey.

I have lots of ideas about:

Health. Alternative medicine, the holistic approach to health, organic eating, and more.
Education. The faults of the public education system, education reform, and the un-schooling movement.
Spirituality. Intuition, meditation, the power of the mind and belief systems, and living from the heart.

I’ve learned:

To let go and learn from hardships. l have experienced heartbreak, divorce, depression, and deaths in the family, and those events have taught me to let go and learn from the difficult times in your life. Do not hold hatred, fear, or sorrow in your heart, for it only prevents you from experiencing happiness.

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”– Mae West

An Invitation to Share Your Wisdom

photo by kelley_leigh

From the moment I learned of the existence of the web, I was immediately drawn to it. I couldn’t have told you why, I just was. I felt I belonged there, and I wasn’t used to feeling that way.

What I realize now is that I was so attracted to the web because is was the first medium that allowed the individual to share their unique perspective with the world.

Shine your light.

For the first time, we, the individual, have the power to touch and connect with people from all over the world. Before, we usually only had the opportunity to shine our light on those in direct proximity to us.

The web has created an opportunity for us to share our story with the people who truly want to hear it.

No one else is like you.

No one else is like me. No one else knows exactly what you know and communicates it in the special, amazing way you do. You have so much wisdom that only you can share.

And you now have the opportunity to make a difference in more people’s lives than you ever have before. We need to hear from you.

The very existence of the web is an open invitation for you to share your wisdom. This, I believe, is what it is here for and personally, I can’t wait to learn from you.
