THE VIRTUOUS ROAD®?
it's a beautiful word and potentially a conscious statement of purpose or intention. Is it possible to aspire to live with such ambition?
At times when our busy world seems to lack substance, often seeming more focused on negativity, adversity, and sometimes a feeling of hopelessness, most of us can find our own way of re-centering. Often when life does challenge us, we forget the importance of nurturing our own hearts and minds. I’ve found that getting back to the simple way of living has the ability to create clarity for the soul. Living with virtuous intentions is not a way of life, but a willful choice that challenges us every single day. I believe we all have the power to make that choice, and the potential to make a difference in the lives of others.
This is where my Creator and my ongoing diligent faith walk continue to spark my desire to learn more, and as I learn, I want to continue sharing it with others.
My real passion began eleven years ago when our family traveled to Italy for a summer vacation. It’s amazing how that first trip helped to change my perspective for a lifetime. Italy offered a recollection of beautiful childhood memories that seemed to tender a little glimpse of times gone by. There is something very distinctive about those times in my life and I want to duplicate them for my children, family and friends, through travel, my kitchen, and by sharing stories here at the place I call The Virtuous Road®.
I have found so much joy in sharing places that we love throughout Italy with others. In addition to the places, sights, sounds and aromas, are the incredible friendships made along those breathtaking dirt roads, highways and by-ways of Italy.
Recognizing that the real grandeur of simplicity is very much alive and well (you just have to look for it), has created the desire to share it with others through The Virtuous Road®. I hope that you will find that same joy and pleasure in the simple things in life. The Virtuous Road® hopes to create community, to share information, and to build life changing, lifestyle experiences throughout the world.
