In February 2016, life was completely different. I was a burned out, struggling, angry career mom who could not imagine continuing the daily grind while, at the same time, unable to imagine being free of it.
On the outside, I had a perfect life. A loving marriage. Fantastic career. The dream home. Two cars. Two beautiful children. If anything, my husband, Matt, and I were on the way to being our own version of a power couple. But I no longer liked my job. I resented all the sacrifices I had to make for my husband to have his own career while I maintained my own. If the kids were sick, I had to call in to be home with them...even with a negative leave bank. Our support system was weak and toxic. Our children were getting the short end of the stick on every level. Everything was on the cusp of falling apart. Something had to give.
I decided I was worthy of so much more than toxic, abusive relationships; a job I had outgrown; and an always working husband. Everything began to shift. I left my career behind with a strong, exciting vision for the future.
What are your dreams? What do you want your life to look like? You can create it. You are worthy and you are loved. As women, we struggle with that. Deep down, we've trained ourselves to believe otherwise. It doesn't have to be that way. If you are ready to flip the script, find your worth, and create a life that gives you joy, peace, and fulfillment, I'm here.
After all, I'm just a hard-working career mom who said "no" to the status quo. Because life is short. Dreams are big. I've got things to do.
And so do you.
