We are one stressed out society! Could be because you expected to wear so many hats. Spouse. Parent. Son/daughter. Sibling. Friend. Employee … or maybe employer. AND of course, Super-hero!
For about 30 years that’s exactly how I chose to live my life. Then, all of a sudden, the world I had built was crumbling. And so was I. The super-woman cape and the bracelets didn’t save me from the pain and tragedy. And they didn’t save anyone else, either.
This was the moment I knew. Things needed to change. I was exhausted!
Are you one of those people that always want to please someone else and were rewarded for being that loving and nurturing person that was willing to taking care of everyone.
As with many of you, It all started when I was young when my parents would reward me for being kind and taking care of people. My mom even called me her little nurse as I was taking care of her after her roller-skating fall. She bragged about that to everyone. I learned that doing what others wanted was a good thing.
Then, I fell in love and got married and I started taking care of my husband and doing all of the things that made him happy, or so I thought. AND continued to work on doing the things that made my parents happy and siblings, and my bosses and everyone I came across.
When the rock started crumbling, I realized that I had been living my life for everyone else and I really didn’t know who I was anymore. My husband wanted a divorce and there was other family drama that needed some support. I did the best I could at the time and knew I needed to take care of me. I just didn’t know how.
Finally, I got this wild idea to move away from home! I was working at a job that could have taken me anywhere in the country. I went to my boss and let him know that I would like to be transferred almost anywhere south and Nashville was my #1 choice. 4 weeks after that discussion, I was in TN.
I spent an entire year on my couch (when I was not working) not doing much of anything except homework as I continued my education. I really didn’t want any more friends to complicate things. My goal was to figure out who I was and what I liked.
This is when I started to understand it didn’t have to be so difficult! If I could learn to align with MY truth…with my success life could flow more easily instead of tripping over rocks all the time.
Over the next few weeks I’ll share with you how to catch the vibe and align with your success so that you can flow with life a little better than you did even today.
We will focus on 4 key aspects to consider when moving through everyday life. Vibration, Integrity, Belief, and Empowerment. In our next series, we will be talking about vibration…See you there!
