Here I was, a career woman, a wife, and a mom, living a life where I felt stuck.
Everyday I would go to an office with people who I loved, a company that I loved, to do a job that I did NOT love. I was unfulfilled in it because I felt like I wasn’t making an impact. Because I was not passionate about it, I felt like I wasn’t good at it no matter how many promotions and raises I got.
But I knew I had to do it because it paid the bills. And it was what I was “supposed” to do. True enough, I could have changed jobs. Actually, I had done that several times before. I would eventually get back to the same feeling of stuck on autopilot doing something that I didn’t enjoy doing.
Then one day, sitting in a conference, I realized that I wasn’t stuck. Things that I had gone through in life made me think that I was. Society made me think that I was.
All I needed to do to get unstuck was to:
- Believe in myself enough to go after my deepest desires
- Care about what I think about MYSELF more than I cared about what other people think about me (boss and parents included)
- Have the confidence to ask for what I wanted (professionally and personally)
- Know that I can be an amazing mom and wife AND have an amazing career at the same time (without the guilt)
Once I got myself unstuck, I was able to determine what type of life would make me happy and then create that life where I am happy and fulfilled.
