In the year leading up to my 40th birthday, I interviewed 40 people from ages 1 to 40 about what it’s like to be the age that they are. Something profound emerged. I discovered that when I took the time to explore the experiences and perspectives of my younger years, it sparked an awakening of the qualities that came naturally to me as a kid. As I traveled back in time to age 2 and 5 and 7 and 10, I remembered what it was like to be fearless and imaginative and playful and curious. By exploring who I was in my past, I was inspired to look ahead at who I could be in my future, and it ultimately changed the way I saw myself in the present, bringing out a broader more self-compassionate look in the mirror. From my experience, I was inspired to guide students through their own time travel journey.
Through my teaching and coaching, I’ve seen firsthand what kids are going through and I can’t help but see a reflection of my own childhood self. and how much I could have benefitted from the qualities of my youngers selves and the potential of who I could become. Digging into my present, past, and future from fresh angles would have done wonders for me as a kid, has done wonders for me in middle age, and is now making a genuine impact on kids today.
Along with my time-travel work, I coach middle-school tennis and hone my cheesy sense of humor on the p.a. as a flight attendant and culture ambassador for Southwest Airlines.
