I worked hard my entire life to prove to myself (and to the world) that I was good enough.
But the problem was, the harder I worked, the less I had to show for it.
I was a busy, single mom—struggling to make ends meet. And I was forever comparing myself to others and noticing what I didn’t have, or what I hadn’t accomplished yet . . . but hoped to someday.
It felt like everyone else had it easy; that they could make things happen just-like-that, while I had to bust my ass just to scrape by.
My dreams always felt so far out of reach, but I never gave myself credit for how far I’d come.
I had a plan, but I was constantly exhausted.
The best thing in my life was spending time with my sons, but I struggled to be present even then—worried about how I was going to make it through, or how I was going to create the lifestyle I wanted for them.
In a bid to prove myself, I took on a gazillion different activities, committees, networking groups—you name it, I did it. I thought if I knew the most, and if I worked the hardest, I might somehow finally get what I really wanted out of life.
A self-improvement junkie, I spent thousands learning from experts, taking courses, and attending seminars. Some of it helped, most of it didn’t. I believed I was broken, and that I had to fix myself before I could move forward—and many of those workshops did nothing to dispute that belief.
And so I worked hard and I tried to stay positive.
But I began to wonder if my someday would EVER come . . .
And then my plan collapsed from underneath me.
I made a job change, hoping it was the answer to my prayers, and discovered it was the opposite.
I found myself unemployed—forced to short sell my home, file for bankruptcy, and relinquish every possession I had of any real value.
I felt like I had let my boys down, and that I had failed as a woman and as a mother.
Left with nothing but my own thoughts, I began to realize how unsupportive they were; how critical, how sad, and how full of shame.
They prompted questions that seemed to overflow with self-loathing.
“How did I let this happen?”
“How did I end up like this?”
“What’s WRONG with me?”
And I began to notice the story I was telling other people. It was a story of struggle and of failure. And it always ended in the same way: “I’m sure things will turn around soon,” or “I’m positive something better is just around the corner for me.”
Words that I didn’t feel. That I didn’t really mean.
And I hated that. I hated thinking those thoughts and telling that story. I hated feeling like I’d lost control of my life.
And I realized something: I didn’t want my sons to see me that way.
And with that realization, a switch in my brain flipped. Something welled up inside of me—a sense that I could do anything. Make anything happen.
And so I began to choose thoughts and feelings that were in support of that. I began making decisions based on what felt good to me. And I stopped doing what I thought was the “right” thing to do and started doing what felt like the right thing to do. (A subtle but oh-so-powerful difference.)
More than that, I stopped blaming myself and started taking better care of me. I made myself a priority, for once. And I learned to treat myself more gently.
In the process, I unlocked my someday box.
Because when I stopped working so hard to fix myself and my life, I started to have FUN again. I stopped picturing my life on a downwards spiral and instead saw it as bursting with abundance, brimming with happiness, and burgeoning with joy.
I began telling a different story—one which made me feel lighter and freer.
And as I healed the hurt I felt from past experiences and silenced my anxiety, my spiritual gifts gradually began to emerge.
Through self-study and working with various spiritual teachers, I learned to use my empathic, clairsentient and clairaudience abilities, and began to develop out tools and techniques that had helped me over the course of my journey so that I could use them to help other people.
Fast forward to today and this place I call Dreamland, where busy, heart-centered women like you can learn how to finally unlock their someday box, rewrite their story and pursue their dreams—just like I did.
Without the pressure, negative self-talk, overwhelm and burnout. Just more guilt-free joy and fulfillment.
