YOU'VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!
BE A DAREDREAMER!
My name is Lisa, and I have almost always lived “outside the status quo”.
I wouldn’t say that I consciously challenged the status quo…I simply didn’t fit in.
Goodness knows, I tried to fit in. I wanted to fit in! I was a cheerleader in high school. I was first runner up and Miss Congeniality in the local Junior Miss Pageant. I was in a sorority at university. I decided to study nursing (not medicine, even though I had the grades!) because it would allow me to have children and be a mother. I was following all the “rules” of the status quo…
Thankfully, at some point, I woke up! Well, at least enough to realize that all of that wasn’t me. I changed my major to Spanish because I loved languages. Then I changed it to German because I wanted to learn another language. I did a year of study abroad in Germany and then I graduated…oh boy…now what?!
Waitressing, of course! Then, “by chance”, I waited on a group of Germans who were a flight crew from Lufthansa. “Why don’t you apply? You speak perfect German!” Why not indeed?!
Two years later, after living in Germany, and flying literally all over the globe, I returned home to California, leaving my German ex-fiancé behind...oh boy... now what?!
Waitressing, of course! Definitely not status quo for a university graduate! Definitely not what my father expected. And to add to his confusion, I discovered I was in love with a woman! Most definitely not status quo!
Fast forward 34 years and here I am, living the “dream life” in Italy, on a small olive farm, with my partner of 34 years.
What happened in the interim? In a nutshell, I followed my heart, my intuition, my interests and my dreams and did whatever it took to take them from dream to reality:
Then, my theme question resurfaced! Oh boy...now what?!
I want to do more than make a living. I want to make a difference!
This time it took more than 3 years of self-reflection (not to mention more than a little self-doubt!) meditation, personal growth studies, myriad courses in self-discovery/Higher calling/Life Purpose before finally deciding to become a Life Coach.
Only then did I finally give myself permission to simply be myself (and not what everyone else wanted me to be.)
I realized that I have achieved what many only dream of:
I have lived life by my rules (not my parents or anyone else’s),
I have followed my heart,
I have done what makes me happy.
Now, I can say - I consciously challenge the status quo!
If you are looking for permission to be yourself,
You've come to the right place!
LIVE LIFE BY YOUR RULES!
FOLLOW YOUR HEART!
DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY!
You can do more than make a living
You can make a difference!
