Who am I?
My Life Story
After 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.
At another party, 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 asked myself, "If this plane goes down, will I be happy with my life?"
I eventually left the legal world and It took me some time to find out what I was meant to do. When I stepped in front of a room of fifty people, I felt at home. And I eventually went into the field of 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. When I found happiness, I created the blog and business, MidLoveCrisis, to enable people to find out what makes them happy and create the life they want.
