I felt passionate about cheer-leading as a child. I thought Dallas Cowboys' cheerleaders wore the best costumes. I also loved watching cheer-leading competitions on ESPN. I became a life coach as an adult, which is a cheerleader of sorts.
I also felt passionate about the ministry. I would arrange my grandmother's religious statues in a row and then have "church" by walking us through them. I became an ordained minister as an adult.
Grief therapy after my parents died included hypnotherapy. I became a certified clinical hypnotherapist as an adult.
A more sedentary lifestyle with my grandmothers encouraged a childhood love of reading and writing. I earned a Creative Writing degree as a young adult.
