Living my dream
The people who know me best know I’ve never met a garage I couldn’t organize or a Pinterest challenge I wouldn’t tackle. Home projects, particularly of the chaos-to-order sort, are my passion.
So much so that I launched happy.healthy.home., transforming my cathartic hobby into a professional business. For the past year, I’ve been on a mission to simplify lives by taking away the stress associated with never-ending clutter and a lack of functional space. And boy, has this been an amazing year!
I learned that you really can accomplish anything you set your mind to (no matter your age!) - like figuring out how to actually use Facebook and Instagram - not just scroll and snoop.
I did things way outside of my comfort zone - like being interviewed for a television feature - and things I had never done before - like presenting to a packed audience of strangers.
I worked harder than ever before in my life and in turn (or perhaps because of it) I am happier than I have ever been.
And you know what the best part is? The reaction from my daughters. The pride on Isabel’s face when she told me she watched my TV interview over lunch with friends. The education and encouragement Gracie gave when I was working on my first presentation. The “good job” I get when I tell them I acquired another client.
I like that they are seeing their mom pursue a dream. I know that in one way or another they are taking this in and it will help them believe what C.S. Lewis said, “You are never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.”
