Who was I to want more?
I mean, anyone would have thought I had a pretty charmed life. College degrees, a great husband, 3 healthy children.
I’d been a good student. A good kid. Excelled at the things I tried.
I felt guilty for lacking fulfillment. 100% blessed by God’s provisions, but ALWAYS knew there was more than just checking all the boxes and making people proud.
Really, I was crippled my shyness, social anxiety, and fear of failure. An overachiever, a perfectionist. Badges I mistakenly wore proudly, though they ultimately prevented me from doing many things that I desired to.
I held too much value in my physical appearance being what I could offer to the world, leading me down self-destructive paths and disordered eating. What people saw on the outside was a mere shell of my authentic self.
I’d daydream a lot. Fantasize about a life where I was comfortable in my own skin. At ease in social situations. Not afraid of judgement and just being happy to be me. I’d imagine a confident version of myself that made a life of HER choosing, not someone else’s. I certainly thought a career and lifestyle that allowed me to have my cake and eat it too–be home with my kids AND have work that I am deeply passionate about that has real purpose–was something of fairytales.
Dreams do come true for those who have the courage to pursue them. I finally made that leap.
Granted they were little baby leaps over time, I didn’t believe in myself enough for anything drastic. But they lead to something even greater than my wildest dreams.
If you’re burnt out, doing all the things you think you’re supposed…
Or Unfulfilled but feel guilt for desiring more…
Or If you are ready to treat your body with the respect it deserves and improve your relationship with it….
I encourage you to join my team’s 2 Day Inside Look into Coaching. We start Wednesday, October 17th!
