"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you did not do than by the ones you did do..."
Smiling Wisdom is a tribute to following your passion and living a life with purpose, a positive attitude, and a grateful heart. The Smiling Wisdom collection is comprised of the simple things that make me smile like places, colors, words, and animals. I believe that one positive message can inspire a person to accomplish things beyond their wildest imagination, mend relationships, and heal a soul. A single smile can change the path of a person's life.
When I was 12, I wrote a letter to a major greeting card company asking how I would go about making greeting cards for them. To my surprise, they responded with a letter and information packet on how to get started. As I was still in grade school, nothing became of that but I never gave up on that dream. I love to write from the heart and share wisdom I've discovered through the years. I have always been an old soul with the spirit of a child who wants to use every color in the crayon box.
An unfortunate discovery of a pancreatic tumor forced me to a fortunate outcome of gratitude. Looming death has a way of resetting priorities and highlighting regrets. With the realization that I may need to say goodbye to my children, I wanted to leave them with something to remind them of how much they are loved. The Guardian Angel gift set was the start of Smiling Wisdom.
The experience provided me with compassion for people who must face death before their time. As an End-of-Life Communication Coach, I work with people to find their words to say, "I love you," or "goodbye" to their friends and family. My goal is to create positive experiences with fond memories. Messages and sentiments are the basis of Smiling Wisdom products.
I am grateful that I am here today and for the opportunity to have an outlet to make a difference in people's lives. Please join me in sharing smiles and wisdom to anyone who needs a little more serenity in their life.
