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. There. I said it. It no longer served me. I also hated all the sacrifices I had to make for my husband to have his own career. If the kids were sick, I had to call into work to be home with them...even with my 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.
Then nothing happened.
And things fell apart in terrifying chunks. The thing that was tearing us apart for so many years had also been keeping it all together.
And I didn’t know what to do.
Today I look at my life and am at peace. I'm full of joy, faith, and expectation of the future. Things are moving in a wonderful direction! We finally gave God room to move. All the upheaval we created in an almost reckless fashion (a method I don't actually recommend to my clients...) was exactly what was supposed to happen. We followed God's promptings even when it didn't make sense. It's what led me here: empowering moms, spending quality time with my kids, never missing a game or school event, and building a business that fully embraces my gifts and talents. It has changed my life in the most amazing ways! This divinely given vision and calling lights me up. There is so much promise here!
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're 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.
