Somewhere along the line, I forgot who I was.
There’s an epidemic of “purpose amnesia” going around, and I had it bad.
Maybe it was all those years of doing what my parents thought I should do. Years of listening to teachers say things like “you can’t make money doing that.”
Instead of following my heart and coaching women to step out of their humdrum lives,
I made safe choices.
I settled in to corporate America, then into a family spa business.
It nearly broke me.
Then one fateful day as I was running on empty, I stopped dead in my tracks and asked myself,
"Is this all there is?"
Where are the feelings of peace, happiness and sense-of-purpose that I had hoped to find? How could it be that I'd been doing everything "right" but wasn't attaining these things? Would I ever get there?
“NOT LIKE THIS,” I THOUGHT.”THERE HAS TO BE A ANOTHER WAY.”
I proceeded to give up my stake in the business, sell my safe suburban house and move across the country to San Diego, where I could indulge in my favorite things—the ocean, sunshine and personal growth galore.
Several months in, I was tidying my hard drive and found a decade-old Word doc called "Career Options for Me."
I opened it on a whim, thinking surely it belonged to someone else.
And there it was, written out plain as day in 12-point Times New Roman: my life’s purpose. Topping the list? Coaching. Writing. Creating events to support women.
It was as if my past self had written this note for my future self to find when I was finally ready. And I realized something key—I’m never going to STOP wanting this!
It was my Firefly Moment.
While I first discovered the power of coaching through Debbie Ford’s coach training program in 2003, the time had come for me to reopen that chapter of my life.
I completed my professional coaching certification through iPEC Coaching, one of the world’s top coaching programs.
And I’ve been helping other women have their own Firefly Moments ever since.
To open up the parts of themselves that have been too-long buried. To help them create life on their terms.
