So glad to have you stop by my little space on the web.
If you're here because something in your life no longer makes sense. I feel for you. I'm here for you.
Congratulations on making that decision.
I’m here to celebrate, support, encourage every abandoned dream that’s lying crinkled in the corners of your psyche.
I used to work for non-profit.
Had a big beautiful shiny ass career that my mentors encouraged and help me build so I could one day take over for them.
One day, no different than the rest, I just couldn’t do it anymore.
I had been working 7 day weeks for a cause I am deeply devoted to (refugee resettlement work) and my brain just said “NO MORE. NO MA'AM”.
Before this day, I had convinced myself that this was life. You find something you’re passionate about and give it your everything until you die.
But I would look at my superiors and see that they were MISERABLE. Burnt out, angry, cynical.
So I quit.
No plan for rent, for food, for the future. My body had called it.
Years later, I thank that burnt out frazzled little version of me. I thank her for keeping me alive and for walking the F away.
Because now what I know to be true from experience—
WHETHER it be with work, love, family, money :
Life doesn’t have to be hard ALL THE TIME.
Life doesn’t have to be 7 day work weeks.
Life can be simple, easy, nourishing, balanced.
It can be filled with easy relationships. Filled with people who see you and support you.
Life can feel magical.
It’s hard to feel the infinite abundance of life when you’re busy surviving.
So if your body has been saying “NO MORE” to you - reach out.
If you read this and connect with it and want more for your life…YOU ARE NOT ALONE- reach out!
The life you want exists and is possible.
A life where you cannot wait to wake up when you go to sleep.
