Mission: To live, to teach, and encourage others my philosophy through the arts of writing stories, poetry, music, and blogs; through teaching and performing music of the cello, piano, violin, and voice; and teaching science, up-cycling, homeschooling tips, and self-growth.
Philosophy: Learning and growth happen best within the framework of RFTLL Respect. Forgive. Be Thankful. Listen and Learn.
Respect. Respect self, others, and authorities (even the ones you disagree with.)
Forgive. As humans we all need to be forgiven for something (probably daily). It also is one of the highest gifts we can bestow upon another. However, it does not mean to forget and allow others to keep hurting us.
Be Thankful. A grateful heart is a cheerful heart. Expect and demand nothing. But give thanks in all.
Listen and Learn: Put the phone down. Focus. Listen to who needs to be speaking. And listen with a heart open to learn something new about the person, yourself, and situation.
