Imagine a warm summer day in the pool, your eyes are closed and you are following a voice in the distance, “Polo.” Remember the feeling of trying to stay above the water line and figure out the direction of your friends voice. When you finally open your eyes you see how far off you really were.
If you closed your eyes and relate to that, you might also relate to me. For most women, we get married, have our children and maybe a career. We have this idea of how our life will play out, but what really happens for many of us. We follow after the voice of our family trying to keep our head above water.
In January of 2022, I couldn’t sleep one night. My husband was in the hospital and my daughter Maggie laying next to me. I got out of bed and pulled out my journal.
I wrote the words…”What if….”

It was my way of coping with things I could not control. Ultimately, giving those cares to God. If He knows my tomorrow, I can trust him for today.
“For I know the plans I have for you,

I wrote the words…What if I went back to school, so I could help others? By the morning I was enrolled, and accepted to Liberty University the day Casey was released from the hospital. I am excited to share that I am pursuing a Bachelors in Psychology with a specialty in Life Coaching. This was a dream of mine the last 20 years. Overcoming my own barriers so I can help my Unstuck Living clients on a deeper level.

Are you ready to make your splash in the pool of life?
Living Unstuck is a journey and
I look forward to hearing from you. “What if…”
