About Kristen Crockett
After I finished law school, I met lawyer after lawyer who shared one thing in common: they were unhappy in their careers.
Television and movies made us all think that lawyers were successful, cutting-edge, fabulously wealthy people who woke up happy. From Claire from The Cosby Show, to Joan from Girlfriends, we never saw attorneys wrestling with work-life balance, illness, or wanting to find their purpose in life.
At a friend's house, I was introduced to another attorney. She asked me, "Are you practicing or recovering?" And that question stayed with me for months.
Months later, I met a man who told me that he literally tried to walk as slow as possible from his subway stop to his job, because he hated what he did that much.
My own job started to affect my health, my relationships, my optimism, and everything around me. I lived for Fridays and I felt trapped.
After weeks of continuous travel, I found myself on a plane in the middle of the worst turbulence I'd ever been through. I literally thought I was going to die. I asked myself, "If this plane goes down, will I be happy with my life?"
That was enough for me to quit my job and search for what really made me happy.
When I stepped in front of a room of fifty people, I felt at home. And I eventually went into the field of coaching, developing leaders, jump-starting passion, and connecting people to their purpose.
I also met my husband online, a true partner who has supported me every step of the way. We helped each other make it through a cancelled wedding (we were scheduled to get married at the Navy Yard the week of the mass shooting), my father's death from cancer, my mother-in-law's breast cancer, and much, much more.
When I found happiness, I wrote the book, The Gift of Past Relationships, and created the blog and business, MidLoveCrisis, to enable people to find out what makes them happy and create the life they want.
If you are trying to get it right, feel trapped, want more, or need to move beyond fear into our greatness, I am here to help you do all of this and more.
