Naturally, somewhere along my journey I lost myself. I was living a good life, but deep down I knew it could be better. I could feel I was not doing what I was put on this Universe to do, yet I didn’t have the slightest clue what I was meant to do.
In 2017 I was asked a simple question, “What are you passionate about?” I couldn’t answer the question, but I desperately wanted the answer. It sent me down an inward quest, which was kicked into high gear when my daycare provider’s husband’s life was tragically taken out of nowhere. It reminded me that my life is NOW and that I have one chance to live it so I better start taking action outside of my box.
As many of us strive to do, I “checked my boxes.”
- Got married.
- Became a successful attorney so I could be financially independent.
- Bought a house that we curated into a warm home.
- I was gifted with two beautiful children.
- Traveled, enjoyed family, friends and food.
One would think after checking my boxes I would be 100% fulfilled right! Yet I had a constant lingering feeling that something was “off” and I had no idea what that “off” feeling was or what I should be doing to figure it out. I often questioned whether being an attorney was my calling, but quickly dismissed the thought because I had spent the last 15 years becoming one and busted my ass to work for a Fortune 10 company. I kept telling myself I should be grateful for what I have and that I was a selfish for thinking there had to be more to this life. I vividly recall driving home from Costco one Sunday thinking, “Is this really going to be the rest of my life?” PS. I LOVE Costco!
I now understand that checking boxes is not the key to fulfillment and a life filled with passion, purpose, and peace. That must come from within by reclaiming your power. As I sat in an Uber and my passion discovered me, running through my body like a wildfire, I knew I was sent a clear message from a higher power that helping other busy driven women reclaim their power so they can live a life filled with passion is my true calling in life.
