About Me

FST! me

We avoid eye contact with each other. All of us. Like we’re in a video game where everyone else is a non-playing character in our personal storyline. But not you. You just clicked on my About Me page. Great job! You just recognized that I am a person – and maybe you want to know more. Just remember, it’s okay if we disagree on things; we all have our own stories to tell.

As for my story, I am an optimistic, adventure seeking, feminist, liberal, music loving, yoga inspired, outdoorsy, educator, and writer. I am married. No children. And not planning on it.

In this blog, I aim to look at a variety of issues and everyday events that might help others to look at things from different perspectives – and to help myself step back or imaginatively trade places with someone to gain insight. My hope is that you will be inspired by my posts, be motivated to get involved in whatever issues are important to you, and gain insight into issues you hadn’t thought about or had maybe thought about only in one-dimensional terms.

And maybe, you might start saying “Hi” or “Good morning” to strangers, because each of them is the main character in his or her own storyline, and you have the opportunity to play a part.

  1. Hey, Trynia. (I’m assuming that’s your name by your email)

    I love what you’re doing. What you said really stuck out to me: “because each of them is the main character in his or her own storyline, and you have the opportunity to play a part.” That way of looking at social interaction is fantastic and makes me want to become a part of more stories.

    1. You just made my day by commenting! Thank you. I think we can all be more compassionate and cognizant of the fact that people all have their own problems and lives. We can either be a positive influence or a negative. So thank you for the positivity!
