YOU'VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!
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. 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 30 years and here I am, living the “dream life” in Italy, on a small olive farm, with my partner of 30 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:
I acknowledged all I have done and learned and gave myself permission to be who I really am.
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 who you really are
You've come to the right place!
