My story is a similar one. Despite my interests and sometimes even my loud intuition in one direction, all too often I abandoned them for a different path.
Many of the choices I made looked good from the outside but didn’t reflect who I was or what I deeply valued. And when intuition tried to speak up, fear kept getting in its way. Pulling me further and farther away.
Then busyness took over and although I was always going, going, going, in reality, I was stalled.
I was stuck in fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of judgment, fear of regret--you name it. I lived in the world of “what if."
After much frustration, I was able to create meaningful change for myself AND ultimately to guide other women to do the same.
However, there is often a striking disconnect between how they see themselves versus how the outside world sees them. They’re more than competent but their confidence has been shaken. They’re creative problem solvers, but too often this skill lies dormant.
They want to grow and take risks but they feel stalled and don't know how. The common thread? A misalignment with who they are and the way they're living their day-to-day lives.
They are often leaders in their field and their teams are consistently outshining their counterparts.
But I hear stories of feeling stuck in a cycle of chronic stress and overwhelm. I listen to many ways stress has bled over into different facets of their lives, how it has sidetracked their goals and hijacked their potential.
I help women rewrite their stories and define their own version of success, so their lives feel purposeful and their contributions meaningful.
For some, a new chapter means realigning their work with their leadership style and values.
For others, it's getting out of a high-stress job and rethinking what they want their future to look like.
For still others, it's eliminating the emotional and mental stress in unhealthy work environments or exiting toxic ones.
And for all, rewriting your story is courageously closing one chapter of your life and empowering yourself to embrace the next.
