Today, Adventures Begin

June 13, 2011 at 5:45 AM 5 comments

Many people across the country are waking up this morning and thinking, “It’s another Monday, here we go.”

Not me. I’m thinking, “Okay, it’ actually Monday, the day is here. I can do this. Here we go!”

Today is the day I try something new (aside from the usual new stuff)– I am going to be teaching this week. I also know that I am not the only one starting something new.

There are two sides to starting something new: Side A = Exciting whereas Side B = Terrifying. A lot of people try to stick to Side A (I know, because even I usually try my best to focus on the exciting parts). But honestly, I’ve let myself become aware of Side B. I know that it’s a little scary, things may not work out perfectly. It’s going to be different. I’m going to give my all (that is always frightening, no matter what). I might end up not having everything I need.

But if I choose to love, if I do my best and go all in, those kids in there will have so much fun.

If I remember to love before fear, or in this case love in spite of fear, the people around me will feel it resonate. It will buzz through every room I enter, every hallway I pass through, every hug that I give. I love to hug people.

Whatever your adventures might be today, remember to love, love, love, LOVE, love and everything else will fall into place.

Happy Adventures,

        I love that journal page of the dancing faries. I am lucky to have a piece of your art.

I’m Tweeting (Yikes!)

  • So, I started going by my middle name in college because I've always liked it better. Now I'm Renée, and can be tweeted at "teafaellana." 3 years ago
  • I keep reading fanfics to tide me over until #OUaT is back. I can't wait to see more character development of Regina! #EvilRegals 4 years ago
  • This has somehow been the best and worst Thanksgiving I've ever had, all at once. 4 years ago

Smile about what you are thankful for, and never forget you are a dreamer.


I am a girl on a mission, and the mission I am on is to be myself. I am an undiscovered treasure, and here I am giving you a key that will allow you a little further into the labyrinth of who I am.

Heather loves hats that are designed to look like cute animals, fairy wings, cheese pizza, swimming in ponds, roller blading, taking silly self-portraits, learning, spending time with people, and just about everything else too. Heather does not love ... well, there isn't a lot that she doesn't love. You can probably figure it out after a little while!
