What got me to this point here and now? I've answered this question a few ways since starting my own business but honestly the answer is that my life was a mess.
From the outside it appeared I was successfully going through the motions of being a responsible adult, checking off all of the boxes that the pressures of society told me I had to to 'fit in'. Yes, life kinda sucked but I was managing it all ok, right? WRONG!! I was stuck in my career, I felt lost, confused and totally alone. I was self medicating with copious amounts of alcohol to get by which accelerated my steady downward spiral into some dark places in my life. I had created my life to fit what society and peer pressure said it should be. I put so much pressure on being ‘perfect’ that I stopped enjoying life.
My drive for perfectionism coupled with my unease and anxiety in not finding it caused me to be a spectator in life and no longer a participant: eventually I pushed so hard I broke. Looking back, there were tell tale signs that I should have noticed but I was too blind to see them myself, wrapped too tight. I had to experience some bleak times in order to reboot.
And dammit it shouldn't be that hard.
So I stopped looking outward for approval and accolades and learned to start looking inward and upward for direction and happiness.
I honestly believe that being happy is our 'default setting' and I live with a positive mindset each and every day and you can too.
There is no best way to finding your happy, it’s not a one-size-fits all plan BUT there is a best solution for YOU. It starts with taking an honest look at yourself, your life and having that moment of clarity when you realize things need to change.
That’s your window of opportunity! That’s your time to reach out and ask for help and guidance from someone you can trust to empower you. You have the ability to enhance your life. You can achieve your goals, realize your dreams and live the best life you can imagine.
And yes, It takes courage, it takes guts to realize that your life may have a different purpose now than what you thought it was 10, 20 , 30 years ago. But it is NEVER too late to take that risk of asking "Well what if............"
I believe that true happiness and purpose is achieved when there is both physical and emotional balance, a peace with yourself and the direction and purpose of your life.
