Personal Growth – Letting Go

Every so often I wake up and wonder how I have gotten to where I am. In my early thirties life hit me hard. I was 10 years in a painful marriage, overwhelmed being a mom to two active toddlers, and my career was in flux. My life coping mechanisms were definitely not getting me where I wanted to be.

I’ve grown from there. I took time to restore my mental health. I let go of my marriage. I took classes on how to be the type of Mom that I wanted to be and when I finally found the energy, I started my own business.

On May 31, 2024 I celebrate being married for 27 years to a wonderful supportive man. My toddlers are now 35 years old and doing very well on their own. I am very proud of them. I have been in business for almost 20 years and that has worked well for me. I am thankful to the staff and clients who have helped me turn my life in a very positive direction.

Today I find myself seeking personal growth again. As I have aged, I have accumulated things. Things that are holding me back. I am focusing on removing things and changing my habits. Recently I purged my home office, changing it into a grandchild’s bedroom. I will have a toddler staying with me for a week. I wanted to have an environment to create memories with my grandson. I now have a strong urge to purge the rest of my home. I don’t need all that stuff. Along with collecting stuff, I want to improve my health. I am working on letting go of my bad health habits. Spring is a great time for personal growth and letting it go… Be good to yourself.
