Welcome! I’m Dawn of Wild Simple Joy! One of my passions is leveling up my life to live my most amazing journey! I believe that anyone can achieve their best life holistically, so that the body, mind, and soul work synergistically. I believe in simplicity, honesty, genuineness, compassion, joy, and freedom to live your life how YOU want to!
For a long time in my life, I was on the conveyor belt. I went to public school, did well, went to college, got a job, and got married to my college sweetheart.
Everything should have been wonderful… but it wasn’t.
Something was stirring inside me. I would look at the lives of others, wondering how they were so blissful and content and yet I was constantly struggling, flailing, gasping for breath. Even though everything had started out great, somewhere along the way, I felt oppressed by the traditional life I was expected to live, and suddenly, I could no longer do it. I knew that I wasn’t happy. It took a long time before I admitted that.
The school I was teaching at had differing philosophies of education, and we parted ways. I started grad school and my life began to take off!
I found a new awareness of myself that I never had before when I went to grad school. I divorced my first husband because he failed to make me happy, and I moved to New Mexico. I met my husband and we have the most amazing life together. It’s not without its ups and downs, of course, but our perhaps unconventional way of doing things works just perfectly for us! Together we have two beautiful sons. I’ve taken the leap to quit my job teaching so that I can stay at home with the boys full time this school year. It’s tough, but it’s worth it!
I’ve worked hard for my life, and it took me a long time to realize what steps I needed to take to get everything that I wanted out of life. I want to share all of my secrets with the world. I want to empower any and all women to do the same.
I believe that life is a constant learning process—it is messy, it is beautiful, and it should ALWAYS be celebrated!
