I was driven to create my best life.
I have been driven to create a better life since I was 8 years old. I remember the moment clearly when I was assaulted by my alcoholic step-father and in that moment that I decided I would create a different life for myself than the life I had known.
I didn’t know how to create a better life, but I was determined to find a way. Careful to avoid the unhealthy habits I saw in my family, I searched for a better way to live.
I sought wisdom and insight from a place of love and compassion, and I was fortunate to discover new ideas that lead me to health, love and joy.
I continue to seek love, wisdom and truth in life, and I continue to live the best life I can possibly live. I express my passion for loving life in my work-life and my blog. Blogging is one practice in living my best life. I reflect on the lessons I’ve learned, and the attitudes and behavior that leads to a good life.
Sharing my experience is a practice of living my best life.
I am not perfect and I love me.
I am not perfect and I love me just as I am. I am a survivor of family alcoholism, sexual assault, family violence and poverty.
Surviving these experiences sparked my desire to a better life- a life of love, joy, gratitude and serenity.
It wasn’t easy to change the attitudes I learned in an abusive family environment and I didn’t know how to be loving. I thought perfection would allow peace and love in my life.
What I found in my quest to be perfect was more struggle. Trying to be perfect didn’t work for me.
What worked for me was learning to love myself just as I am. Growth and progress came once I stopped believing I had to be perfect to deserve good things in my life. I already deserve good things, and that belief allowed me to accept good things when they came to me.
I love my life.
When I accepted myself as I am, I felt love for my life and I began to live the life I wanted to live- a life of peace, joy and success.
It turns out experiencing a life of love doesn’t mean everything goes my way, or that I am perfect, only that I love myself as I am.
When I extend love to others and my joy and gratitude grows.
I couldn’t, and can’t, control the bad things that happened to me, yesterday or today. I can affect my own attitude, treat myself and my work-life with love, and live the best life possible for me.
I can love myself, celebrate my talents and accept my weaknesses.
I can love my work-life and take the energy, passion and commitment that I feel for loving my life to create success in my career.
I want you to love yourself and your life, just as it is.
I feel so fortunate to love the life I have, loving this life encourages me to share my love with you. I want to share the beautiful truths I have learned about life. I want to inspire you to love your work-life, and create your best life.
Whatever your life experience, I hope you embrace love for your life.
Most career advice is focused on situational definitions of success, but true career success comes from finding love inside yourself and extending that love to your work-life.
When you act and interact with your work-life from a place of confidence, gratitude, wisdom and love, you can have the work-life you desire.
Are you living the life you want?
How have you been inspired to live your best life? Do you love your work-life? I invite you to join me in learning to love this life!
