A number of years ago, I felt like I was rocking life. I was managing my job, settling into married life, looking after the house and all the other typical adult responsibilities, while still making time for personal interests, volunteer work, family, friends and taking care of myself.
Then the kids came. And a whole new level of responsibilities, stress and challenges were added to the mix. After dividing my time to keep on top of the needs of my kids, home, work, family and community, there wasn’t much of anything left for me. Or for the things I used to love and look forward to.
In fact, I wasn’t sure I could even remember what those things were anymore. I didn’t recognize who I had become.
Many of my friends were experiencing the same challenges so finding time to connect and support another was difficult and rare. I felt alone. I was struggling, lost, drained and unhappy. And on top of it all, I felt guilt and shame for feeling this way when I had so much in life to be thankful for. I wondered: What was wrong with me?
I searched for answers – I read, watched and listened to countless opinions and approaches to find a way to keep all the balls in the air AND do things that fill, fuel and nourish me. It took me a long time to find my way through this. There were many attempts. And lots of failures. Some steps forward, often followed by many stumbles backward.
But then, I discovered and began training in the science of Positive Psychology (this scientific study of human flourishing is about building up what’s right with you, not just trying to 'fix' what’s wrong). And I felt a shift.
I started to find my way back to myself and it was like coming home. I rediscovered the things that matter to me and found time and energy to embrace them.
I was able to hone in on key practices that consistently worked to make me happier and more energized. For the first time in a long time, life felt more in control and fulfilling again.
No one should ever have to go through the whirlwind, drama or ordeals of life without these fundamental tools. I want every woman to know how to create space for true joy and fulfillment in their lives again.
Life's too short to be unhappy, unsure, or unfulfilled. I can provide you with information, tools and insights to support you in living your best life as your best self.
Please reach out. I would love to hear from you!
