Years ago I ran into a problem. My big life was costing me relationships and my health. But when I cut back, I found that my influence dwindled and my happiness waned. How do you live your dreams without being too stressed out to enjoy it?? I want to help people, cultivate relationships, volunteer within my community, teach, and empower women to “put themselves out there”…in a way that honors my values, personality and season of life. In the years since I have learned to live BIG…and simple.
Living a big simple life
I’ve written about this concept a hundred times from various angles and it comes down to living a life of influence without sacrificing your sanity. It also has to do with self promotion and visibility that is energizing and authentic, with a focus on using your best gifts to serve others. From direct sales reps to ministry leaders to non-profit volunteers, I work with women who have something they want to contribute to the world but refuse to let it cost them what matters most.
It’s not about “balance,” it’s about rejecting busyness and focusing on the steps that will help you arrive at the grandest vision you have for your life. I call it alignment.
It’s knowing who you are and surrounding yourself with like-minded people.
It’s being honest about your strengths and short-comings (and embracing your label).
It’s coming out of hiding.
It’s creating a home that is your sanctuary and your launching pad.
It’s serving and giving whole-heartedly.
It’s making mistakes.
It’s being intentional.
It’s a lot of work, but the best kind of work…and totally worth it.
I’m currently working on workbook about the big simple life concept and I’d love your help. Stay tuned for how to be involved on the launch team!
A big simple life is something I’ve learned from my mom, aunts, grandmothers, mentors, friends and cohorts. Every woman I’ve ever met has taught me something about it, good or bad! I’ve seen women downplay their strengths and wonder why they’re constantly overlooked. I’ve seen women so full of themselves they lose credibility and everyone only works with them out of obligation.
I’ve seen women stand in their own way so many times and it breaks my heart. Their mistake? They were too big…or not big enough. Or they’d made things way too complicated.
I want to help women live a big, simple life…it’s that simple!
I’ve worked with and served alongside hundreds of women over the years. If you know me, you know I have a heart to teach and serve. It’s time for ME to step into my greatness as a writer, mentor and fellow journeywoman so I can reach more women with the big and simple message. I hope you’ll be along for the ride.
