Once, when I was 5 years old, I saw a dad scaring his kid with a monster mask. The kid was crying and the dad was laughing. I walked right up and let him know it wasn't funny to make people feel sad or scared. And in a case of HARD foreshadowing, my first complete sentence was "I just want to do what I want to do".
Those two examples are pretty much still me in a nutshell.
I think life is full of opportunities for us to help each other feel happy and safe.
And yes, even as a "grown-up" I still just want to do what I want to do; and since September of 2017, I've been doing just that. I am in the process of opening a food truck where I will get to feed people every day. I still can't totally believe it when I say it. I get to feed people. Every day.
I love going on adventures and I'm having a blast navigating my way through this current one.
