Welcome to Write Your Vision!

Deep down, most people have dreams - they may be forgotten, unspoken, or unrealized - but they are there. I want to help you remember and believe in them again...

Going Home...

Ever have those moments when a MEMORY is so vivid, you're reliving it?  It's a wonderful experience when it's a beautiful reminder... not so much when it's not.  ;)

Lately I've been experiencing the beautiful.

I remember...
  • swinging through the poles of my grandmother's clotheslines barefoot in the summer's green grass, smelling the freshly clean sheets on the line 
  • standing in a mountain stream in Colorado feeling the water rush past 
  • catching a line drive and feeling it sting my hand (playing minor league at North View park)
  • the first time I held the clutch and brake correctly releasing it on a hill without my car rolling backward (thanks Uncle Denny)
  • the smell of clean mountain air during a snowfall at night, cross-country skiing to a yurt
  • walking across campus freshman year on my way to class, smelling the Fall air, feeling amazing because I was exactly where I was supposed to be
  • enjoying chateaubriand at the Signature Room at the 95th for the best first date ever
  • jumping off a short cliff at the lake in WV, flying through the air before hitting the water (thanks Uncle Bobby for taking the fab 5 out on your boat)
  • walking the streets of Venice marveling at the sights, sounds, and pure joy of being there
...and the list goes on and on.
It's a Wonderful Life!  Truly...

I'm having a wonderful life.  Incredibly blessed.  That said, the older I get, the more I realize how fun life is IN THE MOMENT and how valuable HOME is.  Home may be where you grew up, may be a person, may be where you are now.  Home should be where you feel most like your true self and where you're the happiest.  Home matters.

Take a moment today to savor your home... make a memory.  And if you're not home, make a plan to go home.  I am.
