A Change of Heart

”…I was with a friend at an art exhibition in these very cool studios where artist’s live and work, and I had been introduced to Melisa and she was sharing her project, Postcards to the Universe. She asked if I would like to grab a postcard and write down something I want to manifest in my life. I wasn’t quite sure what that meant.

I started reading and taking classes and courses and trying new things that I had never had the time for. I really listened to my heart. I discovered that I liked sharing my knowledge with others, and I really wanted to help people, especially children. So, I got my teaching degree and became a teacher…”
