OK – now let’s really talk: During the summer of 2011, after surviving a life-altering sexual trauma, I decided to take a leap of faith, quit my full-time job and return to school full-time to pursue a degree I had left behind in the early 90s. I graduated in May 2016 with a leadership MBA from Liberty University (and I was in my mid-40s). It’s been a challenging, interesting journey. My social circles have changed drastically – which isn’t necessarily a bad thing – just different as I find myself in another season of life.
Being a full-time student freed me up to really engage in the world around me on a different level. Simplicity overtook my life and frankly, I still prefer it that way. I found a certain solace in being able to step back and just breathe and relax from the rat race of the old business world I had become accustomed to.
In 2018, two of the most significant people in my life died, in addition to trying to provide moral support to my best friend after her niece was murdered. These death traumas radically changed my life at very personal levels – to the core of my personality. I embarked on a journey of the soul and began making radical changes in all aspects of my life to include spiritual, relational, health, and professional. I have discovered ways to incorporate all of these areas into the core of who I am without apologies and without offending others.
I now face life with a new outlook and a refreshed sense of ownership and purpose. It is my desire to share some information about all these realms and invite others to join me on a journey of an abundant, healthy, simple, productive life as we learn to embrace and realize our own talents and dreams while fully celebrating each other.
