Tupper's 2 Cents

Feet on the path and eyes wide open.
I know it’s been said, but I’ll say it too…  Life is a journey, and we all are on it.

My name is Kathie Tupper, and if you are like me, your journey has at times been rocky, unstable, scary, and seemingly without form or content. At other times, it’s been chock full of success, love, excitement, and joy. Sometimes we each must travel alone, and sometimes we get to share our sorrows, successes, and inspiration as we go..

For all of us, the path inevitably winds, dips, escalates, and sometimes all but disappears. Occasionally we lose our bearings and veer off altogether. But in one way or another, we must always find our way back to the path, to what feels real and centering for each of us. How we get back is often as important as anything else we encounter on the journey. Equally important is the choice of what we take with us and what we leave behind.

All of these issues I’ve wrestled with for nearly 53 years. If there is one thing I am certain of, it’s that no journey is easy. And I don’t pretend to have all the answers for my own journey, much less anyone else’s. But I do have passion, a passion for improving the quality of that journey. What makes a quality life and how do we get there? Let’s talk about finding and pursuing our passions, gaining confidence and trust in ourselves and our lives, following our paths with the greatest amount of satisfaction possible, and learning and growing from our inevitable stumbles.

Come and explore the ways we can work together….

Health & Life Coach

My name is Kathie Tupper and my path, like yours perhaps, is really made up of several paths.

I am fortunate in that my professional paths are fulfilling and energizing. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist, Health and Life Coach, and published author. I am passionate about all of these roles, and it brings me great satisfaction to help, heal, and motivate others in these various venues.

Another path revolves around the fact that there is truly nothing I enjoy more than being in nature, and it feeds my soul on a very deep level. On this path I pursue hiking, biking, backpacking, and basically anything outdoors that my body can handle and my spirit enjoys. And this path, like my professional one, is a constant source of wisdom and direction for my life.

I have found great satisfaction in using the written word to share, inspire, and encourage others in pursuit of their passions. I am currently writing a memoir based on my solo John Muir Trail hike (working title, No Crutches for this Mountain Goat), and how the multitude of lessons parallel and add to what I have learned on the path of life.  

I am confident that although the details of our paths may not be the same, the wisdom and skills that help us live our lives with more depth and satisfaction are.

You may not be a body worker, hiker, writer, or even a nature enthusiast, but I hope that my struggles and successes on my paths will help you maximize the quality of your life’s journey. Let’s explore what this looks like together!
