For the first few decades of my life I was a “very good person” by most external measures, but I never felt good enough.
I taught in some really challenging situations and loved it, but no matter how hard I worked, it never seemed that I could meet the needs of all my students. And I lost my temper way too often.
I had the same problem as a mom. I tried to do all the things that a good mother would do, but I didn’t enjoy most of them. I loved my kids, of course, but was too ashamed to admit that I wasn’t really happy. In fact, way more often than I wanted to admit, I was angry and depressed.
I kept working harder and trying to work smarter, trying to be more grateful and less selfish. I read ALL the books about how to do more and do it better, but I couldn’t quite figure out the magic formula.
Eventually, I realized that I’d be a much better mom and a much better teacher if I stopped trying to be good and figured out how to be happier, more energized, and less easily beaten down by life.
Since then I’ve been helping other moms and educators create lives that are full of purpose and happiness, goodness and joy.
That’s why I created this FREE guide, "Six Ways to Go from Surviving Your Day to Loving Your Life," to help you move towards a life you love.
In this guide, you’ll learn six strategies that you can use to start shifting from feeling like most days are a struggle, to living a life that feels like a gift.
