I am blessed beyond measure; I have an amazing husband of 24+ years who loves me and whom I love madly; I have 4 children who fill my heart daily; I have all that I need and much of what I want, I have a strong relationship with the divine and feel supported and connected in all aspects of my life and yet, I have felt dissatisfied and stuck over the past two years.
On July 18th, 2013 I was hit hard with the realization that I was living a life I had never intended to live. It was not a bad life, by any stretch of the imagination, in fact, for many people it would be a dream life. I was living in a house I did not enjoy, I was not doing any work that had meaning for me, I spent most days nagging our teenager (that is a voice I hated, even as I spoke), and I did not know what to do to make my outer world reflect my inner world of love, peace and joy.
I found myself rattled and disoriented, cornered and desperate. I did not sleep for several nights – once you know the truth, it is hard to hide from it.
I did not know what to do but I knew something had to change.
