My Pivotal Moments
The pivotal point for me to even start thinking about a change for myself was when my mom died.
When I began the quest of health and wellness, it was for my mom.
She was diabetic.
She was overweight.
What many people don’t know is, when I was a kid, my mom and I went to the 4th of July parade where we lived in Monument, Colorado. When we got out of the VW bus that her friend drove, blood had covered mom’s seat. She had hemorrhaged. She was carried off by ambulance and I stayed with close friends for a week.
The vision I saw at the young age of 6 was something that could not be unseen.
It also gave me the greatest fear – losing my mom. Because of that fear, I remember crying myself to sleep many nights, even in my teens.
As I got older, everything I did, was to help her in any way possible. Just so we wouldn’t lose her.
When she had her stroke, it was the hardest decision to make to let her go.
Imagine all my life trying to help her and then I couldn’t.
My passion for everything I was doing died along with her.
I didn’t care to keep my studio open. I didn’t have any desire to keep doing what I was doing.
I felt lost.
But still, I kept going.
Then when we found out we were pregnant with Emma, quiet whispers kept creeping in.
Let the studio go.
Be PRESENT with the family – with myself.
I kept on for another couple of years but these quiet whispers were getting louder and louder.
How can I slow this all down?
How can I create simplicity in my life?
Life is way too precious, I want to soak in every moment with my kiddos
How can I turn off my brain going a million miles an hour of everything I HAVE to do so that I can be PRESENT?
How am I going to make this all work if I close down my studio?
How do I move FORWARD without it feeling like life is speeding up?
Have you ever felt like this? This mental tug-of-war?
Send me a message if so because I know exactly how that all feels.
Those are the questions we’ll be looking at during our Nourish Your Purpose Now lesson THIS evening.
