Anyone else have adult meltdowns? No, me neither.
In 2012, at the age of 34, I bought my first townhome. I had to borrow $5,000 from my parents and took out a teacher loan to afford the down payment.
When I sat down to sign the 800 documents, I saw a much larger amount than I expected as my monthly mortgage payment. How was I going to pay for that on my teacher salary?
The tears sprang up and started spilling down my cheek. The lawyer and my realtor (both male and single) had NO idea what to do. The tears just flowed as they passed me a tissue box. Bahahaha! Bless.
Thankfully about 5 minutes later one of my greatest friends showed up to support me with a bottle of champagne and a smile. She had bought her first condo as a result of a divorce and knew exactly what I was going through.
How had my life ended up here? How was I 34 and single and almost no money and hating my job and having a meltdown in front of two male lawyers?
That’s a long story, so I’ll skip to the ending.
I found a book by a life coach that changed my life. Then I took massive action and did the work and prayed and meditated on verses and things that created joy in my life.
Then I finally got the memo that I was worth a 10 (we all are) so I needed to find a 10 husband. Enter Darin. Then I decided I wanted to pursue coaching teachers. Got that. Then pursue helping kids with their emotional and mental health. Did that.
Sold two homes in between (one of which paid for my wedding).
Now, 7 years later, I just turned in my resignation at the school that I LOVE and a job that I LOVED to pursue a calling that I LOVE.
Life Coaching. Because life coaching is what started this whole thing and the coaching that Brooke Castillo teaches lit my life and my husband’s life on fire.
I took the leap, but knowing that I have my own back. It’s scary and exciting and all the things. My brain has argued and doubted and celebrated and committed.
I am living my dream come true of being a full-time life coach where I get to impact lives in a whole new way.
What I want you to know is that it is ALL POSSIBLE. Nothing you can imagine is impossible.
Weight loss. Better relationships. A job you love. The finances you want. Confidence.
It is ALL POSSIBLE. You just have to commit to doing the work. It’s not an overnight solution, but you didn’t get to where you are overnight either.
It is ALL POSSIBLE.
