Greetings from California, USA!

Hello! My name is Mikayla. I'm a Work at Home Mom, ESL teacher, and personal growth junkie from Cali. ❤

Title Text

❤ The Deets:

Age: 44 | Kids: Two (ages 13 and 24) | From: California, USA

❤ What I'm Doing:

I've been working from home for the past 9 years and I LOVE it! In December of 2016, the company I was working remotely for decided to close it's doors due to industry changes. I have an MBA degree and had been managing the daily operations. Since I'd grown tired of the work I was doing at that time anyway, I took about 6 months off to decide what I wanted to focus on next.

Fast forward to today and I have been teaching English online to kids in China for the past 6 months and having more fun than I ever thought I could have "working." It's a blast! The pictures above were taken in my "classroom" where I teach every morning, Sunday-Friday. Ironically, I'm usually pretty camera shy so you probably won't see too many selfies from me in the future.

❤ How I Plan to Contribute:

After reading through some of the awesome content here on Steemit and learning how the community works, I first want to say that I am excited to be here!

My plan is to share my daily personal growth journey. I love just about anything having to do with personal development and am always looking for new ways that I can grow and improve. I've been intentional in my growth journey for over 10 years now and have learned so much! I'm really looking forward to sharing what I've learned with all of you. Some of my favorite thought leaders in this area include Dr. Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson, Iyanla Vanzant, Don Miguel Ruiz, Tim Ferris, Gabby Bernstein, and more.

I've also battled with clinical depression and anxiety my entire life so I'm also looking forward to sharing the things that I do and use to help me manage them. I'm passionate about helping others find their way through these challenges because I know first hand just how debilitating they can be.

I plan to blog about my Steemit journey too! I'm brand new to crytocurrency as well as Steemit so I'm looking forward to learning all I can and then sharing it for the benefit of those who come after me. :)

❤ 5 Fun Facts About Me:

1. I'm happiest when.... I'm cozy in my robe by the fireplace, reading a good book.

2. My favorite colors are... lilac purple and turquoise blue.

3. I could probably eat ____ everyday. Mexican food. Definitely.

4. I was born on the same day as... Shailene Woodley and E-40 :)

5. I can't stand... closed-minded people that think they know everything. Hate. Racism. Sexism. Homophobia. Xenophobia. Pedophilia. All of it!

Well Steemians, that's all I've got for now. THANK YOU for reading my first post! Can't wait to connect with all of you and do all I can to help this community grow and thrive. ❤

Blessings to you all!
