Life is changing fast. Your kids are growing like weeds, and they’re becoming their own person. They’re hanging out with friends or getting an after-school job. It seems like just yesterday that they took their wobbly first steps. And all too soon, they’ll take their first steps across that graduation stage.
Their lives are changing – you are changing. You adore your kids, and you love being a mom. But you feel like you’re being left behind. You’re wondering what’s next for you.
Think back to your pre-mom life. You had dreams, accomplishments, and adventure. Then, you became a mom, and everything changed. You sacrificed your time, energy, and perfect hair days for your sweet babies. You cherish your children and the magical whirlwind of motherhood.
But now, your babies are tweens or teens, and you find yourself with a bit more time on your hands. So, you volunteer. You try new hobbies and rekindle old friendships. But you can only take so many spin classes, right?
You’re looking for more.
But you don’t want to just fill your days.
You want to rediscover yourself.
You want to follow your passion.
You want to find your purpose.
But where to begin?
Hi, I’m Amy! I’m a mom of three and a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach.
There was a time when I felt like I had it all. I went to college, got a graduate degree in international business, enjoyed a blossoming career, and lived around the world. I felt successful and significant.
But when I became a mom, life drastically changed. My husband traveled for work, and we wanted the kids to have a grounded, consistent presence at home. So, I left corporate America to take care of our kids full-time. I traded climbing up the corporate ladder for climbing on playground equipment, chasing the kiddos. I was grateful for the opportunity to spend this precious time with them.
Years passed by, and before I knew it, I woke up in my mid-40s with my youngest entering middle school. I had more and more time on my hands – time I wasn’t quite sure what to do with. I knew I had skills and talents, but I felt outdated and irrelevant. I wanted to do something, but I had been home for so long. A lot changed since I was in the workforce. What could success look like for me now? What could I possibly do?
It turns out that the answer was closer to me than I realized. And guess what? The same is true for you, too.
