Passionate About Helping Women Lead Happier and More Fulfilling Lives
I had been a people-pleaser for as long as I could remember, and for a long time, I honestly did not think too much about it. After becoming a mom, however, I noticed that it became overwhelmingly harder to try to make everyone happy. I couldn't keep up with the ideal mom images and the not-so-subtle "you should" at every turn. I was repeatedly advised to enjoy each moment, but I felt like I was barely surviving, let alone enjoying. I could not squeeze anything more onto my seemingly unending to-do lists, yet I still felt guilty all the time. The harder I kept trying to live up to this standard that I believed the world wanted from me, the worse I felt.
After getting Shingles at only 34 years old, I took a much-needed pause for some self-reflection. I suddenly realized that the reason I felt unhappy and overwhelmed was because I was chasing after other people's goals and ideals. It was then that I gave myself permission to think about me for once. What makes ME happy? What do I want? Now the only standard I hold myself to is being authentically me- as a mom, in my relationships, in my work, everywhere. By giving up the image of what I thought was expected of me and experiencing life as my truest self, I was able to create ultimate joy and freedom in my life.
