Let me make this clear. I am an uber-responsible person, but adulting is not my favorite thing. Like most women with a career and a family, the responsibilities that lay themselves out before me every day are ever-growing and exhausting. I can see why some just throw it in, give up finding time for new adventures, and wear yoga pants with a messy bun on the daily. And that’s when things are going relatively good…
I spent almost four years suffering from depression and ptsd. During that time, I still kept my career going (day job: speech language pathologist) and took care of my five great kids. I met every responsibility, but I just went day to day to day…always struggling. I wore a lot of dark colors, and a lot of ponytails (and not in a stylish minimalist way either). I didn’t really give a damn if my outfit was on fleek, and when I traveled during that time, I would become ridiculously homesick. I was in black and white, but the rest of the world was in color. It was a shitty feeling.
So here’s where I’m at now. I am still “doing the work”, but I now do it from an inspired place. I enjoy life and my family and have learned that there is a pretty great space where inspired living intersects with modern motherhood. On the other side of this journey, I am now a certified life coach, helping others get “unstuck”, live their best lives, and present their best selves to the world.
I share what inspires, and what makes me happy, as I have learned sometimes it is those little things we surround ourselves with, do for ourselves, or even put on, that can change the mindset of the whole day. So this is my inspired space on the web. My life and lifestyle. It’s not perfect; it is sometimes messy, but I am a 100 percent believer that perfection is boring, so I have that going for me. So come along and let’s find some great shoes, plan that road trip, and learn to live with inspiration and purpose in between reading bedtime stories and morning to-do lists.
Thank you for stopping by.
