Do you ever get the feeling that you're doing things out of sequence? Like... you have a plan, you know what you want to do, you know how to get there, but things just aren't happening in the order that you thought they would.
That's how I've been feeling since November 2020. I had a plan. It was a good plan. And it totally fell apart- or so I thought.
I knew I wouldn't continue working in the district after the 2020-2021 school year. It was too stifling. And I was sick and tired of being told that I wasn't doing my job; I wasn't good enough at my job; in order to succeed at my job, I would need to model myself after others. It was tiresome. I was drained. My confidence was shot. I had to take some drastic measures; hence, my resignation.
I was freed from that bondage and placed in a situation that was of my own making. I started a business that I was unable to fully thrive in because I was always working. Funny how that works out. But with my new found freedom, I was able to start branding myself, putting myself out there to truly assist others, and learning to market myself. I'm still learning how to do all of those things, but let me tell you, I have learned so much about my stamina and endurance during this time.
I've gained and lost clients. I've had struggles and battles that I've had to face within myself. However, I've persevered. I've had time to study and relearn and even unlearn somethings. I've lost some weight (it was so necessary). I've been able to come back stronger than before! I've had the opportunity to work with and learn from people who have been able to sow wisdom into me that I can now share with others. Y'all just don't understand how amazing it is to really have people see your talents, show their appreciation to you for what you are doing... and if you do, I hope you know how much of a blessing that is because I had forgotten what those things felt like.
Taking control of both my professional and personal life is how this site came to be! I finally had time to work for myself- to do what I needed to do to allow me to flourish. And let me tell you how awesome it is!
With that being said, I welcome you to my new site! I hope that you find things that will benefit you and your families. If you have questions about anything, please feel free to reach out via email. I would love to assist in anyway possible! And if I can't help, I promise you, I know someone who can. I'm so excited to be doing things on my own terms now and in ways that will truly help children and families holistically. All I've ever wanted to do is help...and now I can. It's been a long time coming!
