16: Making Sense Out of Your Mess

Join in on a unique episode experience- a hybrid of sorts: interview + topic based. I pull back the curtains and let you in on some serious intimate details of my journey as an educator. This episode was inspired by a conversation I had with an edu-friend of mine over Voxer about some painful parts of the behind-the-scenes life of a passionate professional. Come learn how to make sense out of your own mess so that you can be the healthiest, happiest version of yourself! (If you need someone to talk to, shoot me an email: gretchen@alwaysalesson.com.)


  • “We are in the same boat, just not at the same time.”
  • “We are not static creatures. We either progress or regress.”
  • “Your talent cannot come to fruition when you’re frustrated.”
  • “Without pain there is no progress.”
  • “There is so much strength in our stories.”
  • “If we do not take care of ourselves first, we cannot take care of anyone else.”
