I’m so excited you’re here! And I believe it’s no accident that you are. As the founder of Create Your Now, I want to be the first to welcome you to the family!
Have you ever felt like you’re running in circles going nowhere fast and all you can do to stay afloat is getting those daily to-dos done?
What kind of life is that?
Your dreams on the back burner.
Not really knowing who you see in the mirror.
And OH… who is that man next to you?
Life can really get in the way when you are juggling the children, the husband, the job, the house, the bills, the volunteer commitments, and on and on and on.
Are you still breathing?
I so understand where you are. I found myself in a tornado, barely able to catch my breath. I was doing life just like you. However, what I thought was all good, actually turned bad. I had no time for the most important person, which was me.
You might say,
Well, I really am ok with that. I’m happy to take care of everyone else. That’s what I’m suppose to do.
However, you now are at a crossroad of wanting MORE IN LIFE, but you don’t even know who you see in that mirror.
Create Your Now was established for women like YOU.
A place where you can reDISCOVER, reJUVENATE and reNEW who you are in mind, body and spirit.
My journey led me down a path of realizing that I was doing what was EXPECTED OF ME, but not what God had planned for me. He shook me to the core in order to wake me up and opened my eyes to tell me that there’s more to life than juggling. LOL
Being busy and serving everybody doesn’t allow YOU to be your BEST selfie!
NO, that’s not being selfish. It’s a matter of taking care of you so YOU can LOVE and SERVE others more!
Life became so much more ENJOYABLE when I began to focus on me. My energy and zest for life swelled greatly giving me a passion to live on purpose for a purpose, which is sharing life with YOU!
Are YOU ready to create your now?
If you’re still reading…I’m more than thrilled. You are truly why I’m here! However, maybe you want to hear more of my story. Well than continue to read on……
And I warn you, it’s a LONG story!
My LONGER story….
Everything in life, I did to the best of my ability always aiming for perfection. As a mom of 5 children, I was either pregnant or nursing for 10 years. And keeping up with the perfection, I didn’t even have an epidural with any of them.
Married to my amazing husband (almost 23 years), he at one point told me…
“I have fallen out of love!“
That was the tornado that stopped my life. God needed to get my attention, and boy did He!
Sometimes, you don’t know what is happening when you are immersed in doing what you THINK is EXPECTED of you. I was the “perfect” wife taking care of the children, homeschooling them, supporting my husband in his career (which at one point meant moving every year for 5 years!), doing household duties, volunteering at church AND running my business. But somehow, I missed the boat!
What was I doing wrong?
Ultimately, I had fallen out of love with myself. This led to increased ANGER issues, always wanting everything “PERFECT” but nothing ever was, WEIGHT GAINed to the point of reaching over 210 pounds (after my 5th child).
YIKES — medically obese!!!
Yet I would put on an event everyday… my Masquerade Ball with my friends that life was OK. I didn’t see that what I was doing was all wrong!
The craziness finally came to a screeching halt with the shake down from the words of my husband! The details aren’t important as much as the healing process. My crisis became a blessing in disguise. Even though my husband moved out and my world seemed to be falling a part, God carried me through it all.
I decided and committed to creating a LEGACY of LOVE and SERVITUDE regardless of the outcome in my marriage. Frankly, I was scared out of my mind!
The CHANGE started with me. I realized what I needed to do was focus on what I could control, which was me. The craziness was complete and life began to look so much better. Sacrifices were made, new blueprints discovered, strategies learned and life renewed.
Life doesn’t have to be all thorns and thistles. You can live a vibrant life with rainbows and a few sprinkles of raindrops. The question is, are you ready to create your now?
A Final Thought…
Not sure if you want to try this or not? What do you have to lose, but maybe a few pounds, negative self-talks and self sabotage?!!?
One morning early, in July 2010, I decided, committed, and never looked back. I pushed through multiple obstacles and not only refocused my life, reconciled my marriage, but lost over 75 lbs. in 2 1/2 months.
DETERMINATION was the only way up that steep mountain!
SUCCESS was achieved as I developed into the woman God created.
POWERFUL when I decided to help others reach their highest potential!
GRATEFUL for the tornado of life that directed my path to blissfulness…A little taste of Heaven!
I ask again… Are you ready to create your now?
Still wanting a little more?
Enjoy these FUN-size snapshots and secrets!
Life done with a smile
