You work hard.  You give your best and your all.  You attend industry conferences, participate in team trainings, and invest in professional development.  You go above and beyond what’s expected, all for the love of your profession, the people you serve and for that feeling of sweet satisfaction and fulfillment that’s supposed to fill you up after a hard day’s work.  The problem is, you end most days feeling emotionally drained.

Growing up on a small North Dakota dairy farm, the promise I inherited was that working really hard was the path to feeling worthy, satisfied and ultimately, fulfilled.  So, when I set out on my own, I worked really hard. No matter my circumstances, my go-to strategy was to just put my head down and work even harder.  Nevertheless, that full sense of worthiness and fulfillment alluded me for many years.  I, too went to bed at night feeling exhausted and emotionally drained, and would silently criticize and judge myself for not working hard enough to feel fulfilled.  Worse yet, I built up a lot of resentment over the years because the promise wasn’t playing out as true for me. 

Wanting to let go of that resentment…

became the catalyst for working on myself, during which I learned that as well intentioned as it was, the promise I inherited was ever so slightly flawed.  You see, there’s a difference between working really hard to feel worthy of yourself and working really hard to be the unique expression of yourself.  You weren’t handed down the skill set for the latter but, you have the wisdom, determination and resourcefulness to learn it with the right support.  I’m here to be that support.
