Welcome to my site . . .
I’m Sheila, welcome to my blog. I’m glad you’re here.
My life is an exercise in authenticity because I spent so much time trying to fit in and live up to what others expected of me.
Maybe you’ve felt that way, too.
Join me on my journey out of the maze of inadequacy. I’m passionate about helping women expose “I’m not enough” as the lie that it is. Just because you can’t change the past doesn’t mean it has to change you.
Do you ever get tired of listening to the same old tapes playing in your head? The ones that tell you to be quiet when you speak up or tell you to sit down when you stand up or ask you who do you think you are when you step out of your comfort zone to try something new?
Before I knew it, I’d relinquished significant parts of my life to the feeling of I’m not enough. I felt like there was something wrong with me. I was constantly looking for the answers in all the wrong places.
I thought if I did all the right things–read the right books, drove the right car, lived in the right neighborhood, maintained the right weight, hung out with the right people, wore the right clothes–I’d discover the secret to happiness and success.
Everything looked great on the outside.
But, it wasn’t that easy. I was still plagued by past decisions and choices that caused friction in my heart, resulting in frictions between my husband and me and a strained my relationship with God. I was fueled by bitterness, anger, and insecurity.
I couldn’t change my past so I had to change the way I thought about myself.
I’d like to show you how I made that shift and give you the tools to make it, too.
Now I accept I’m an introvert to my core. When I’m not blogging you’ll find me watching Law and Order-SVU- chatting it up with one of my sisters on the phone or hanging out with my husband and kids.
I’ve been married for more than 30 years and have five offspring.
I write from the experience of 30 years of marriage, five kids, homeschooling, ten corporate moves, two dogs and a ferret. (May they rest in peace.).
My life is real. Sometimes it’s not pretty, but it’s always honest.
I hope to encourage you to be the authentic woman God called you to be.
