Both of my parents are retired teachers, and to be honest, I never ever expected to follow in their footsteps. Yet after saying “Yes!” to leading a workshop in Portland last week, I will announce: I am 100% addicted to teaching others.
There were hiccups. My confidence was shaky and my sensitivity came out in all the wrong places. But wow. I learned a lot. I learned that I really can rely on myself and myself alone. I learned that I’m stronger than I imagined. I learned that when things around you become chaotic and you feel the world is crumbling, your soul sings a lullaby. It’s inherent. I think that’s what it’s there for.
I learned that something magical happens when you group together 20 inspiring women. I learned that community is inevitable. I learned that energy is contagious. I found that taking the high road is always, always the best decision in life.
I learned that I want to do this for the rest of my life. I learned that investing in others financially, emotionally, spiritually, creatively and academically is my calling. I learned that I can do this.
I learned that I will do this.
I’ll be leading another creativity course (albeit a different format!) in San Francisco next month. I’d love for you to be there to be a part of the amazing, life-changing experience that is grouping together like-minded strangers and storming the castle of awesome.
Please come. I’ll meet you there.
