I am a fun loving optimistic person ready to travel and learn about the world! Pursuing a career in elementary education I never want to grow up. I love watching others grow and want to be the inspiration to them. I LOVE leadership and if teaching doesn't work out would like to pursue a career in leadership workshops for youth. My passion is positively impacting the world. Love and more love. -E

  • Happiness is fleeting

and I’m the fool who always chases it.

You have roots that keep you in place, But mine grow upwards getting tangled in branches. You have feet that always stay grounded. Wings like a hummingbird, I can’t stay still.

How does a cloud fall in love with foundation? How does the sun admire the moon? Separated, all is well, we are beautiful. But you must know…

I would teach my roots to love the soil. I would trade wings for feet, soaring for stepping. I would become fog that kisses the earth. And I would give up my title to become the star that sits next to you.

I have found happiness that’s not going anywhere, But it turns out I’m the one who’s fleeting. Emily-Langer
