If you’re like most of my readers, you’re interested in doing things intentionally to make your life better. You are committed to your own personal growth and you know that with that growth, your life will be more fulfilling. Growth means that your relationships will improve, your parenting will be less stressful and your improved leadership skills will make you more successful in just about everything you do!

Maybe you feel like this person who told me,

“Life just gets so hard. I’m juggling a full time job, kids and all the responsibilities that go with running a household. I can barely get all the things I have to get done just to make it through another week. I feel bad when I’m so stressed and I don’t feel like I’m a very good parent. I’ve had plenty of opportunities for promotions at work, but I know those promotions require me to first grow my leadership skills. When can I find the time to grow anything?”

Does This Sound Like You?

  • Do you feel like the life you’re living is not the one you had in mind?
  • Do you find yourself wishing you knew how to make things better?
  • Do you fear that the next big crisis in your life will be the last straw and send you to your breaking point?

If the answer to any of those questions was yes, welcome. I’ve had those same thoughts and feelings.

I Know How You Feel

I know how you feel in just about every area you can imagine. I thought I had life all figured out until my first pregnancy at the age of 24, I had premature twin boys with severe cerebral palsy and every challenge imaginable. I went through a divorce several years later, and feelings of inferiority and abandonment, all while keeping a teaching career afloat and earning two advanced degrees. So, I know what it feels like to be in over your head, to feel so over your head that the thought of one more crisis moment meaning the total end to life in the sane lane.

As a former teacher, school principal and superintendent, spanning a 30 year career, and now as a successful entrepreneur in my second career, I have faced the reality that life brings challenges, big ones, small ones and this one just might take me down ones. It wasn’t until I started taking the time to invest in my own spiritual, mental and emotional health and growth that my life started changing for the better.

And I’m still not done. Every day is a new beginning. My life is joyful now and full of hope and the desire to pay it all forward. Making the decision to stop being the victim of the circumstances that life gave me and start taking action to make my life better was the first step.
