My Story

I wanted to write a personal note to introduce myself. My friends decribe me as a modern-day gypsy. I suppose that is because I could never stay any place too long. But it wasn’t just geographically; I didn’t stay in relationships or jobs that long either. I was searching. 

I didn’t have much emotional support growing up so I sought my identity through others only to end up feeling empty. I’ve lost friends along the way as I’ve tried to conform to the beat of many drums- not certain who I really was. The pressure and anxiety lead to self-destructive behaviors that eventually led to shame, guilt, divorce and depression. 

At the age of thirty, I was divorced, no children, no family, no money and stuck in a energy sucking job. I had surely hit rock bottom but somehow I knew that my life wasn’t supposed to be this way. 

I’ve always been fascinated with the mind and spirit.

Although writing was my first love and creative outlet in life, my dad encouraged a more practical course of study so I chose a Psychology major. Although I didn’t practice long after graduate school, I never stopped studying Psychology. It wasn’t my calling to be a traditional therapist.

I kept a fierce passion for personal growth and my first love, writing. 

Trading that career in for a corporate setting was not exactly an upgrade. Monetarily it was but emotionally it wasn’t for me. Always reading and journaling, I kept a fierce passion for personal growth and my first love, writing. 

This small town girl found new philosophies, new practices and a holistic approach of overall health and wellbeing. I was doing the inner work and things were transforming. I found the man I would spend my life with and I gave birth to our daughter at the age of 39.  My only source of anxiety was that I was holding onto work that no longer served me. I was trying to be all things to all people. The only thing worse than the stress was the immense fear of leaving the known and walking into the unknown. 

I knew I couldn’t straddle fences anymore. Was I going to take the road less traveled? Was I going to create a life that fullfilled me completely and had meaning that resonated with my soul?  This was my call to adventure. 

I think you know what I chose and the journey is still unfolding!
