i used to be the teacher who stayed at work til 8:30 pm. i used to grade in the middle of the living room floor on the weekend. i used to eat only half of my meals out. (I still remember the sensation of cutting my restaurant burger immediately in half, knowing I was “only allowed” to touch one side.) I used to play power rangers on the playground. i used to fear sleepovers because i was scared i might wet the bed. i used to be 3 years old. I used to be 7. I used to be 20. And now I'm not. Now I'm the coach that teaches educators how to build a fierce AF work-life balance where they feel energized and inspired to pursue passions, interests, side-hustles, self-worth, impact, and more. I don't work on the weekends unless i'm doing something super fun or super challenging (fun for me!). I probably more often eat a dinner-and-a-half and sometimes need to remind myself what portion control / eating schedules are. i watch a lot of sci-fi / superhero movies and am currently modeling my “look” after Carmen San Diego…so maybe the essence of the power ranger playground is still in affect… i have a sleepover most nights with my doggo, Marcus…and now i'm really only scared HE might wet the bed! (he doesn't) I am conscious that one day I will be 50. One day I will be 70. One day I will be 90. (godwillingamen) And with all that, I know: when i let go of who i used to be i step into who i am meant to be and who i really am. it isn't always easy. it isn't always fun. but it is always worth it. and it never, ever stops. (so wherever you are, you are in just the right place, doing just the right thing. there is no finish line so you can stop being so hard on yourself all the time.) And if you need support in figuring out how to make this journey more FUN, EASY, PLAYFUL, and PLEASUREABLE…(and not pulling your hair out, continuously start-stopping, living perpetually overwhelmed, anxious, confused, frustrated, lonely and alone, bored, uninspired, afraid, blah blah etcetera) - - I have some exciting news… I am putting together a monthly membership program for art-making, parallel-playing, dream-building, community-filling, ritual-practicing, pleasure-having, and purpose-driving… and it is going to be amazing, and nurturing, and spacious, and sexy, and I really can't wait to get started. (Imagine like, the best parts of art club, and book club, and creative healing, in one juicy balanced membership that puts the biggest smile on your face every time you think of it) So good, I know. More details coming soon.
