Hi, I’m Tracy, the face behind What Stirs Your Soul Media.
The question, “What stirs my soul?” kept popping in my head after a chronic illness diagnosis due to a brain injury. I felt an urgency to find my happiness. For the first time, I realized doctors can’t fix everything that is broken and it reminded me how quickly life can change.
Have you ever asked yourself, what stirs your soul?
My “short” answer is photography, writing, nature, and traveling, especially with my dog. It took time to figure that out and I still work on it. Because of that, I want to inspire and help others to live life on their own terms.
I started my first blog in 2010. That blog opened up a new world when Guthrie Theater accepted me into their blogging program to review and write about the shows. Since then, I’ve continued working on my writing and photography skills. In 2011, I quit my corporate job and started a photography business. Over time my business changed as social media continued to grow and become such a big part of our lives.
Now, I’m a content creator. I bring a human voice to digital media by creating moments, sparking emotion, and showcasing the people and community behind the business. Freelancing has allowed me to fulfill my dream of traveling alongside my freelancing husband and our rescue dog. We share our experiences here, offering inspiration for life and travel.
Now, back to the chronic illness. I’ve had a hard time over the years articulating what it’s like living with chronic pain. The way it affects my daily life, my plans, and my dreams. I’m in a better place and hope to start writing more about it…sharing my journey and tips.
We are also very passionate about helping animals. I am a volunteer for Best Friends Animal Society, writing stories and helping wherever needed when visiting the sanctuary. We commit to give back 5% of our blog’s earnings to Best Friends Animal Society.
