In A Nutshell

As an ambitious 25 year old still figuring out parenting and my roll in the adult life I'm determined to get the most out of myself. Right now my main personal values are Challenge, Curiosity, Self-respect, and Belonging.

Every person has an inner voice telling them what they need, it says "wake up now" in the morning it says "don't eat that" when we're full. Growing up means learning that nobody can be that voice for you. You have to learn to hear it, and find the strength to listen over every other voice calling for your attention and telling you what you should and shouldn't be doing.

Event 1 - Soul Song Heart Sick

I've got the first event in my self discovery exercises ready. These are one part of a larger program I'm developing for young adults ages 16 - 21, I post a new event every second Friday.

This week were going to make some collages to become more self aware. Collect images and words that lift your spirit and bring you joy, and images and words that bring you down

Inspiration creating vision to spark motivation for independence

The programs intention is to prepare youth to be self sustaining by the age of 21. The program will have them owning 3000$ in assets, 1/3 of which they earn themselves (it's a funded program). They will have learned technical skills such as following a routine, cooking, cleaning, managing paperwork, and budgeting finances including knowledge and experience with credit cards.

On top of technical skills each young adult will leave the program with a mixed media life planning tool kit they've created to continue building bridges to a sense of purpose in their life, find a creative voice, and stay connected to their ambitions. consisting of their ideas and positive affirmations including: core values, inspirations, roll models, and positive self talk so they can feel empowered to believe in themselves and begin their next adventure.

Value the individuals personal ambitions, demonstrating support and belief in their ability to problem solve and make decisions by involving them as full partners in developing their plan and making day to day decisions. Leaving them with the knowledge to manage a home and defining a vision for their life.

Here's the video as promised explaining the details of the event:
