Follow Your Heart



“Gratitude can transform common days into Thanksgiving.  Turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”

~William Arthur Ward





I want to personally thank everyone for the support that has been given to my family and myself over the course of the past month. Thank you for…

  • The text messages,
  • The phone calls,
  • The cards,
  • The happy hours,
  • The dinners,
  • The food prep,
  • The bartending,
  • The jello shots, and
  • The great stories of my father.


Over the course of this past month I have spent a lot of time reflecting on the definition of success.  So often in our society, success is defined by the size of your bank account, the location of your house, the type of car you own, the title you carry, and the people you associate with.  However this past month I saw a different side to success, a side where…

success is measured in laughter, stories, and friendships.

On many occasions I could see the similarity between my fathers’ life story and the story of George Bailey in the movie “It’s A Wonderful Life“.  Like George Bailey, my father always wanted to leave Pearl City and travel, however life circumstances always required that he stay close to home.  After listening to the multitude of stories this past weekend I realized that my father was…

the richest man in town!

My father never had much money, but he was happy because he followed his heart.  He found ways to do what he loved without leaving the area…travel and tell stories.  He was a farmer, a feed salesman, and a truck driver.  And as people shared these stories with me, I realized that my father gave me a very special gift…he taught me to follow my heart!

How do you define success?
How happy are you?
Are you following your heart?

Starting in June, I will be offering a new program for people who want to follow their heart and make the transition from a job/career/business that leaves you unsatisfied and exhausted to a job/career/business that feeds your soul.  If you want to get on the first to know list, sign up HERE!  Stay tuned!  Details are coming in the next couple of weeks!
