This was just the beginning…
I AM THRILLED TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE INSPIRING STORIES OF SELF-EXPLORATION, COURAGE, AND TRANSFORMATION.
In May, I experienced my butterfly moment, from which the idea for an interview series, took form. I felt like I was just getting to know myself. I was falling in love with the experience of finding me. I was not ready to end the love affair. It felt as if the time had come to live the life I had worked so hard to create. I found my career, I received my graduate degree in my chosen field, I played with a fabulous group of women, I was married and it felt like everyone was ready for me to start growing our family…but there was a tug deep within. It whispered to me so firmly, this doesn’t have to be it. This is not the end, it’s just the beginning. At that moment I felt my wings take flight.
This was just the beginning. And at that moment tears started streaming down my cheeks. I cried for my freedom. I cried because for the first time I realized that my life was mine. That I get to write the story. It doesn’t end with Happily Ever After, it starts here.
During the Butterfly Interview series, we will be showcasing women who have dared to live inspiring lives of meaning. Our intention is that others will receive the courage they need to lead their own authentic lives of purpose. Our first featured butterfly, Brett Larkin, has graciously agreed to work with me through her transformation. Each month, we will recap our monthly meeting and share insights experienced along the way. We will also showcase a different butterfly’s story each month. These butterflies will be telling their stories of transformation. They will reflect on their journeys and offer insights on what helped them during these times of transition.
If you have a person in your life that you believe would be a good candidate to become one of our featured butterflies, please send us their contact information and how they have inspired you on your journey.
