However, when I met James and I started to open my heart to an even bigger idea (James has the best ideas and they're always big) I knew that I would need to be open to other names out of respect for the collaboration and other people's hopes, dreams and ideas. So I haven't been demanding that we use "The Young School"...until a few days ago.
I want to honor my family because they have not only helped me with funding for the project, but also given me the experiences and support that makes me want to give to others. In addition, I want the building to be a place that helps people to be happy and to always feel young. Learning and sharing rejuvenates you! Realizing how much you've grown over a period of time can bring real happiness.
So, as usual, James was very generous and kind and agreed that it would be ok to keep the name that I have always wanted. I couldn't be more grateful. And now that we have that decided, we can move forward with creating a website which will feature our podcasts, a link to the blog and eventually everything that we want to share with people online. We can also get a logo and stationery put together.
I'm so excited!!! "The Young School" is coming together!
