This morning, I would like to share a note that a good friend sent me last week. I met this woman while backpacking the Sawtooth Wilderness a few summers back while in search of tiny house inspiration. It was right before the business started picking up steam. Her words not only left me warm and fuzzy, but I felt would be inspiring to others seeking out their tiny house dreams.
I want to take a minute to tell you about my day and how you inspire me. It’s been a wild/life changing few months of twists and turns. It’s been my time to break out of the traditional public school setting and find my brave new life. I had an interview today with a group of pioneers who are starting their own co-op school that I want to be a part of it. The school is not only looking for their first teacher, but also someone who will fit into their community- add to their co-op. So it’s an untraditional setting to say the least. While I was trying to explain who I am, I began talking about the possibility of me buying a tiny house to live in the area. We talked at length about finding your calling and doing what’s right and finding fulfillment in that. I told them your story about how you had a dream and turned it into reality with your bare hands, your brain, and your heart. When I was done talking, the women were mesmerized not only by your story, but by my telling of it. They said, ” wow, harness that energy you just had there, when you were telling that story, your face lit up and your voice got softer, we really just saw the true you.”
So, thank you for inspiring me by letting my light shine through your story.
~(really pretty woman)
PS. I’ll be putting in an order for a Stanley.
It has not been easy building this business from the ground up. I have sacrificed much. Little tidbits of love like this make me realize it was all worth it. I wish my Idaho friend the best of luck in her brave new journey and hope her story can serve as inspiration for others in search of their calling.
