About seven years ago, things were different – well, at least my mindset and perspective were different. I had a good job, wonderful husband, loving family, and plenty of opportunities, but I hit a point in my life and career where I knew I needed a change. I couldn’t figure out what I wanted or what might be next. My lack of direction and clarity was impacting my relationships, health, leadership abilities, and motivation. I was drifting, hoping the right thing would come along and magically create fulfillment and purpose in my life without much hard work on my side.
Fast forward a few years to a conference where one of the speakers unknowingly called me out for living my life as if I had no say in my own success. What?! Right then, I took a very close look at my life and realized I was allowing the pity parties and feelings of discontent, but I could make a different choice. I hired a coach and started digging out of my self-inflicted state of yuck. Little did I know the journey that lay ahead of me would not only provide tools, wisdom, and hope but would also change the trajectory of my career, deepen my faith, and set me on a path of engagement with my own life.
