Frustrations and resentments eating at happiness with spouse and kids?
Secretly yearning to be pursuing your own delayed dreams?
This is the story for so many women. You know you have a pretty good life, solid marriage, smart kids – and yet something inside you aches for more.
Maybe life has become routine, and you’re wondering if it’s time for you to return to, or start, a career. Perhaps you’re thinking about getting that professional degree you put on hold a decade or more ago. Or, you’ve been waiting for the kids to be more self-sufficient before you started that business you always wanted to have.
I know what wondering and waiting is like. It can be aggravating and demoralizing.
There’s probably a voice growing louder inside you. When is it my turn, it asks. If I don’t move into my own dreams now, will it be too late, it worries. You might anticipate that big changes will upset those who have taken for granted that you’ll always be there for them.
And you’re could be right – change could feel like loss, and be difficult on all.
You might be wrestling with a host of worries, such as:
Am I being selfish? Can my kids adjust if I’m not as available? Will my husband be supportive? Am I employable at this age? Is it too late to launch something new? Would it look silly to be a student again? Do I have the energy to balance career and family?
And if you’re not careful, those questions will sabotage your best intentions.
But what if it is possible to get unstuck? What if there are alternative options you haven’t thought of? What if you had some support and guidance for releasing guilt and fear, and resolving that sense of loss?
Let me assure you – it is possible.
There are alternatives. You can recapture your own life-dream, and I’m here to provide the guidance to get you there.
