˜ "My dream. That's a difficult question to answer. I can't answer that. I'm living it. I'm living a second chance kind of life. I didn't think I would live past thirty and I am thirty - six. I'm a happy person, fulfilled, but it's hard to answer a question like that with any real conviction. At least it is for me. I'm kind of in the middle of a transition as far as my profession goes and it kind of feels like being stuck on a roulette wheel for an extended period of time. When you're ready to go and you're just waiting for that ball to land. No idea where, black or red or what number, and then one day waking up and seeing the correct trajectory. So I am getting my teaching credential. I'm going to teach middle school or high school; wherever I think the greatest need will be. I looked back and I thought something I always wanted to do, but was moderately afraid of, was teaching. Public speaking used to be a fear of mine, but one by one, I've been knocking down things that I've been afraid of in my life and going head on in to them. That's what has lead to my fulfillment." ˜
Jordan has an amazing story of perseverance through hardship and I'm so glad I was able to share that time with him. He doesn't do Instagram, but I hope that he finds this.
