I understand that misty, unnamable feeling when you’re giving it your all, and fall into bed at night, exhausted….the bad kind of exhausted.
And believe me, I've tried all kinds of things to find a true sense of fulfillment:
At 16 I headed off to college full of dreams of becoming an architect. Yay big dreams! But, after two years, I left, uncertain any longer of what I wanted to be, and feeling like I had failed.
I have tried everything to reach that sweet spot from meditation to volunteer work to teaching yoga and healthy eating.
Since that time I have lived in 5 major cities in the US, finished my degree in interior design, went on to work toward another degree, studied in Paris, Married, had a wonderful son and created several successful businesses.
I read self-help books like an addict, determined to discover the secret.
Until, finally, one day, I began to write. Writing loosened the constraints. Accepting that innate need to create I was born with, that we are all born with, opened my world. That is when the light bulb went off.
And that is why I re-created my life around helping women just like you.
Women who want to live, not just make a living.
Just in case you are interested, I have two Life Coach certifications (to go with a design degree, a partially completed Fine Arts degree, Yoga instructor certification and two certifications for massage).
But in the end, none of that matters nearly as much as my ability to get you from where you are to where you want to be. If you are ready for trans-formative work, really ready to shake off the first chapter of your life and begin writing the second chapter with passion and purpose, I can help you do that.
So as it goes, presently:
- I get hopelessly lost in antique stores (the good kind of lost, not the bad kind, like trying to figure out Twitter accounts.)
I was raised by a single mom who worked three jobs to make sure I believed I could be whatever I wanted to be. I believed her, but I only have one life. If I had more, I would play sax for Bruce Springsteen, be a principle dancer in the New York Ballet, speak 12 languages, and start a non-profit that ended all the heinous crimes against women world wide.
As it happens, however, despite not wailing on a sax or dancing en pointe, the one life I do have is wonderful. I write, live part time in the city of lights and get to work with delightful creatives like you. When not doing that, I am strolling the streets of Paris with the man of my dreams, or dancing around the kitchen with a glass of wine while he prepares gourmet French meals.
I may not be Elizabeth Gilbert, or ever have a movie made starring Julia Roberts as me, but hey, it is a freaking awesome life.
Yours can be too.
"All Children are artists."
The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.
Smartypants Pablo Picasso said,
He recognized the challenge to remain the carefree artist of our childhood in face of all that we carry.
But, that doesn’t mean it has to continue to be darkness and curses from here on out.
This is your one fabulous, miraculous, marvelous life. Come out of that deep sleep. Write Your Life Right Now.
Are you ready to create the Masterpiece life you were born to live?*
