How it began
In 1994, I married a sweet man with whom I had two amazing children. We had fun together, we
laughed together, we were in a band together. And then everything changed. Our marriage
became strained. I knew my husband was struggling with depression and focused my energy on
trying to find ways to make him happy. I also spent a lot of time and energy making sure my kids
were happy and as unaffected as possible by the tension in our home. The one person I was
not taking care of was myself. What I didn’t realize at the time is that I was also depressed.
In October of 2013, after 10 years of basically being an automaton, going through the motions,
an old friend came back into my life and helped me to remember who I am. That is when I
asked myself, “If this isn’t my life, whose is it?” And so began my journey to healing myself and
reclaiming the happiness I used to feel.
All of my experiences in that 12 years of struggle in my marriage inspired me to help others who
have forgotten who and what they are. To help them find their authentic self, not the masks we
all learn to wear to “get along” in life.
We may not all have the same experiences in life, but we do all have the same things to learn. I
was given the gift of these struggles so that I may serve in the way I was intended to serve …
To help YOU Find Your Happy again.
