How it all began...
I’m a college educated woman, married with 2 beautiful children. I have parents who are loving and supportive. I was fortunate to have had a really good childhood.
But I still struggled.
I struggled with happiness. Was I happy enough? Why wasn’t I happy? What was wrong with me that I wasn’t happy?
I struggled with high expectations of myself. After having flown through high school with honors, I was doing horrible in college. Why wasn’t it as easy? What happened to me?
I struggled with creativity. Having been the most artistic in my family, I had no idea how to handle seeing someone in 5th grade that made my drawings look like stick figures.
I struggled with identity. Who was I now that I was a stay at home mom?
Struggle. Struggle. Struggle.
It seems that struggle was all I did for the majority of my life.
I was stuck.
What did I do?
I read over 100 books on anxiety, happiness, self-help, habits, etc. I hired life coaches. And I journaled. I even went to Tony Robbins' Unleash the Power Within (and yep, I walked across the hot coals!)
And little by little I got "unstuck."
I’m happy to say that the changes I made were so very simple.
I saw the positive effects my new way of thinking had on my life and I wondered why there weren’t more resources to help kids navigate life. Why did it have to take me 40 years and quite a bit of money to figure this out?
It hit me. This was my way to make a difference.
I started writing a few children’s books but was quickly frustrated by the lengthy process of getting published.
After seeing an instructional video for kids, I realized that I could make my stories into fun videos that could help children.
And if I could make a difference in a child’s life, I had to give it a try.
I couldn’t be more proud of this program. I know it works because my kids use the lessons on me!
