I come from a line of farmers and teachers.
My mom grew up in the Philippines, working on a sugarcane plantation as a child and becoming the first of her family to go to college. She founded a school near her village. My dad grew up in the corn fields of the Midwest United States and became a teacher, then joined the Peace Corps.
All of this is to say that I grew up in a family that valued education, travel, and hard work.
I believe that we are each gifted with a life. We are here to learn and grow, and make a positive contribution with our gifts.
Learning how to unwind your old stories and write new ones is sacred work. Learning how to honor your past and design your future is a worthy effort. Live with intention. Be present. Share your gifts. Celebrate the miracle of being alive.
This is how we make good use of our time on the planet, and light the path for others.
