A handful of years ago, I was in the midst of aggressively driving my career forward, working 80 hours a week, while going to grad school part-time and seriously, seriously hating my life.  

 

Nothing I did ever felt like enough, but I was beyond exhausted by constantly pushing for the NEXT thing.  My marriage was failing and the more stressed I got, the faster the number on the scale climbed.  I desperately wanted to leave my mark on the world, but THIS WAS NOT WHAT I SIGNED UP FOR


I’d been taught my whole life that working hard was the single most important factor in being successful, so I worked my ass off.


Working HARDER than anyone else is what I brought to the table. 
 

That’s what I thought would get me ahead.  And, sure, I ended up very successful.  But outward success didn’t seem to translate inward. 


I was miserable and my body was SCREAMING at me to pay attention: I packed on pounds, balanced my alcohol cravings with equal doses of caffeine, and suffered from that ‘tired but wired’ feeling that kept me up half the night.

 

I FELT SO BURNT OUT.

SO OVERWHELMED

SO TIRED

SO UNAPPRECIATED

SO ANGRY.  

SO GUILTY.

SO MISUNDERSTOOD.

SO DESPERATE TO "MAKE IT WORK".  
 

AND SO FRUSTRATED THAT I WAS DOING ALL THE
“RIGHT” THINGS AND YET I WAS SO UNHAPPY.


But at the same time...

I was conflicted

 

Despite the long hours, I actually loved my job and I didn't want to give up everything I'd worked so hard for, but I doubted I could maintain a successful career and balance any semblance of a personal life.

 

The reality was I just couldn’t wrap my head around how to align my strong work ethic and desire to be successful with the lifestyle I craved - a happy marriage, an awesome social life, and the down time I knew I needed to really care for my mind & body. 

 

I couldn't see a way out.

So, I quit my job.  


It saved my failing marriage and my waistline, but it lead me into a professional tailspin that had me hopping from job to job to job – 5 of them, in fact, in just 3 years. 


I wouldn't wish that on anybody... but I sure did learn a lot during that time.  


When I look back, everything that I've learned since shows me that it wasn’t the job that needed to change.  It was me. 


We are often at war with ourselves...You have to find that balance between your heart and your mind.

After quitting, I spent the next 5 years learning everything I could about what I needed to do to have a successful career & a balanced, happy life.


Now, I live a truly balanced life - a career I love, an incredible marriage, stress-free time to enjoy family and friends, & the time and space to care for myself.  

 

If you are questioning if there's a better way for you to be successful, 
I can assure you there is.

 

BALANCE CAN EXIST, BUT YOU HAVE TO CREATE IT FOR YOURSELF.
