Today is my 34th birthday.  I’ve been procrastinating on finally committing to maintain a personal blog, so I figure I’ll start my 35th year off by keeping a promise to myself.  😉

I was really uncertain as to what I should share for my first official post, and I’m unsure of the exact direction of this blog.  What I can tell you is that I have a great passion for helping others:

  • grow personally and professionally
  • spend their precious time intentionally
  • live their best lives…


A former high school student of mine {the fabulous Elnaz M. @ Millennial Nomaad} recently asked me to participate in an amazing project she organized to showcase and support creativity + growth among women.  She asked us all, “What makes you feel alive?” This is a seemingly simple question, but I literally spent days pondering it.  I feel that my response to her thought-provoking question might offer a glimpse into who I am and why I’m here with my ramblings… Here is my response to her:

Being me = being free.

For me, feeling alive has everything to do with freedom – the freedom to roam, explore, learn, fail, grow, and {most importantly} the freedom to live authentically.

Living a life that aligns with who I am took me a long time to figure out, but letting go of the “supposed to” and embracing my unique values has been incredibly liberating; it has truly transformed my life.  There’s an indescribable power in finally realizing on a deep level that I am the creator of my own journey while on this planet.

My ongoing journey of living each day authentically and intentionally is helping me create a life I love- a life where I feel grateful, alive, and free. 🙌🏼❤️🙏🏼

As an educator by trade and a personal development junkie, I am honestly thrilled if I can help just one human live a life that is more aligned with his/her passion, purpose, and values.  I’m a firm believer that we need to clear the {emotional, physical, mental} clutter and ask ourselves routinely if we are living authentically and intentionally.

I’m giving this personal blog thing a final shot.  If you’ve made it this far into my first post, I am sincerely honored and grateful that you have shared your valuable time with me.  Many thanks, and I hope to bring you value over the coming weeks… months…or hopefully longer. 😉

live with intention,
amy  ❤


P.S. Many thanks to my friend Karen in NC for holding me accountable and encouraging me to begin. 🙂
