About 4 years ago, I woke up one day and realized that I hated my life. I was exhausted, frustrated, completely overwhelmed, and felt trapped.
Don’t get me wrong, I had a husband who was (and still is!) my very best friend, 2 amazing lil men (now 3!) that I got to stay home with! I’d finished my bachelor’s degree which was a huge goal. We rented a cute little house and had great neighbors! I was in shape, walking 6 miles a day!
On the exterior, it was all wonderful. I had no reason to complain, but I was miserable. And of course, I felt terrible for even feeling that way.
Let me give you a little back story. Growing up, I excelled at almost everything I did. I played varsity soccer and loved it, I was in the National Honor Society, I took AP classes in high school and aced them. When I graduated, I was headed to UT Austin with the intent to complete a pre-med program on my way to become a neurosurgeon. (I find the brain fascinating!)
However, a few weeks before school started, God spoke to me. Honestly, it feels a little weird for me to say that, given that I grew up in a church that believes that God does not speak to you except through the bible. But, I have no other explanation. I heard a voice. And that voice was so compelling that I completely changed my plans. Plans that I had since I was a little girl!
So, I did not immediately go to college. Instead, I went into a missions program, where I learned a lot, grew a lot, met my amazing husband, and my dreams changed!
I tell you all that to say, my whole life I thrived on creating goals and reaching them, but 4 years ago for the first time in my life, I felt like I had listened to God’s call and I felt stuck. I was miserable.
Here’s why: because I didn’t just feel stuck, I was stuck. After I finished my degree, we planned for me to stay home with my sweet boys. I loved that plan!
I failed to realize, though, that all of a sudden my entire life was now wrapped up in other people. My entire life was filled with changing diapers, playing at the park, cleaning the house, doing the laundry, helping my husband. I hadn’t dreamt up anything for me! I had no goals, I had nothing to achieve.
You see, we’re meant for change. We’re meant to grow, to bloom! Other than flipping furniture and planning birthday parties, I had no goals! I had nothing that was moving me forward in life!
I realized that everything in me was shouting out to DO SOMETHING! Anything! Make some goals. Create a dream!
So, I did.
I slowly started my journey to figure out what the life I imagined actually looked like. What did I want? What fires me up?
I created a new dream, new goals. I started learning, discovering, growing, changing. I’m still walking in God’s calling for my life, but now I’m unstuck.
It made all the difference in the world! Not only for me, but for my family! They didn’t want me to be miserable and frustrated. They want me to thrive, just like I want for them!
Now, 4 years later, a big part of my dream is to help you do the same thing!
I imagine there are some of you who feel like I felt. You feel bored. Stuck. Frustrated. Overwhelmed. Exhausted.
I don’t want you to feel that way. I want you to dream big. To live the life you’ve imagined! And, I want to help you get there!
Thanks for being here with me. I’m so grateful for you! And I’m so excited for us to be on this journey together!
If you want to get started now, go ahead and evaluate the life you’re living!
