Questions & Life
It wasn’t supposed to be like this!
How did I end up here?
How did I get to be (35, 47, 53, etc.) and not have any idea who I am?!
Have you ever come face to face with questions like that? Maybe they’ve bubbled to the surface in a quiet moment with coffee. Or late at night, lying in the dark. Or, looking out over a rain-drenched landscape. Or, while overwhelmed by the mountains of work on your desk.
I remember driving to a trade show with a some colleagues a few days after starting a new job, when one of them turned to me and asked, “So, what do you do for fun? In your spare time?” I looked at him blankly for a moment and stumbled through a joking answer about moms with full time jobs not having any free time. And as the conversation rolled in a different direction, I sat in stunned silence realizing that I had no idea what I did for fun. When did I stop having fun?
I remember looking at my spouse of 20 years and realizing that we had no clue who each other was or wanted to be. We lived completely separate lives. How did that happen?
I remember moments of clarity when I realized I had no idea who I was anymore. How could I not know myself?
If you see part of yourself in any of these questions, you’re not alone.
My world shifted dramatically with a cross-country move, a divorce and a financial disaster. But, in the process of starting from the ground up, I decided to restructure my life in such a way that those questions wouldn’t show their face again.
What if you lived with joy, intention and purpose?
What if you knew exactly who you are?
What if you had an answer for the questions that haunt you in quiet, unguarded moments?
Join me on a journey into a “what if” life.
Mine includes my boy’s laughter, rambling travel, grace for myself and others, long walks, BBQ, and a deep love of people, story, and learning. And a rescued boxer named Wylie.
Every Sunday evening, I chat about a “What if?” question on the What If Experience podcast and then follow it up throughout the week with a few short action items by email–I call them the What If Coffee Talk emails, and they’re sent to help you both process the What If podcast question and apply it.
I’d love for you to join me on the journey! Sign up below for the podcast and Coffee Talk emails to be deposited right into your inbox like a little morning gift. Sit down with them over your cup of coffee…or tea…or green smoothie…whatever your morning drink of choice (for me it’s Tazo Zen tea) and let’s step into the world of possibility together!
