I'm not fearless
This is my first post as the founder of Soul Meets Road- how totally exciting and equivalently scary. Yikes! What in the world do I think I'm doing? Oh that's right, whatever I want! Truth is I'm following a lifelong inner calling of learning and sharing that knowledge with others. I believe that in learning we fuel the driving force that enables change, in our own lives and consequently the world.
You see, I tired of spinning around the hamster wheel of a life I had created. In 2014 I left my job in the classroom for life on the road towards freedom. Then quickly built a new hamster wheel in a new remote job that was getting me nowhere, fast. I don't know about you but I'm too stubborn to be told what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. I'm good at it, responsible, dependable, resourceful, but it just bores me to death! So I had choices to make; value security or value freedom.
Naturally, I did the next logical thing for me, I built my own "job." Yet all of these things; quitting the security of a teaching job, loosing benefits, giving-up my remote job and making ends meet, brought a lot of fear and uncertainty. I'm no different than anyone, I'm full of doubt and self-judgement. But then I realized that I am never going to be "fearless," fear will always be there. So, I learned to do it scared.

And so, here I am, writing this post on my website a.k.a. my "baby" as I like to call Soul Meets Road and I invite you to journey alongside me.
Be relentless in the pursuit of your soul’s calling; it may scare you near death but monotony will surely kill you.
Soul, meet Road.
