Many of you probably do not know that I had a child at 16, two weeks before I turned 17. I was still in high school, it was my senior year and it changed my life completely. I had to take care of my son and complete my high school year. It was challenging at times having to wake up at night and still go to school the next morning. I had dreams and inspirations, still even after I had my son; I knew I would accomplish them. So...I did graduate from high school and I went to college. I ended up going to college for about a year and half, I was going for nursing. I always wanted to go to college, because no one in my family had ever graduated college. I wanted to be the first one to do this so, I tried it out.
During this time I had moved in with my son’s father and we got married. I was married to him for five whole months, he liked to drink and have people over our house all the time. It was never a relationship about the two of us. I dropped out of college and then went to do my certificate at a two year college for medical interpreter, which I never used. I just wanted to finish school for something, but I felt I just couldn’t dedicate the time and effort in nursing program based on all the challenges that I was facing at the time.
By this time I had to move back with my parents, not something I wanted to do, but I had no choice. I met my current husband through this rough time in my life. He opened my eyes up to what was going on with me. He gave me the inspiration that I couldn’t find within myself. It was difficult, but I still seemed to manage it all. I wanted to go back to school for nursing, because I felt that was my life purpose and path.
After several years, I did return back to school and started back where I had left off. It was difficult going back to school after so many years, but I knew that I had to do this for myself. So, I went to school once again and I started to figure out my life...once again. Now I am married to my husband, having three children and trying to make school fit in my schedule. Working a full time job was getting very hard for me to juggle. At the time, I was doing billing and insurance claims for the doctors. By now I felt that I had to finish this degree. It was something I knew I needed, in order to have a better life. It was hard for me, but I got through the semesters and my husband supported me by taking care of the kids.
When my uncle passed away two years ago, my life changed completely and drastically. It was my awakening of a new life and I started to question everything that I was doing. I realized that school was about proving a point to someone else. I was not doing school for me. I had been wasting my time on something that I would accomplish, but not feel fulfilled in. I wanted to have that normal life that all of my friends around me had. I wanted to have a degree, because I thought that was the only way I would have an abundant life.
I decided to turn my life upside down and move to California with my husband and children. Every time we came out to visit my husband’s family something about California felt like home. I needed to be in a place where I felt like I belonged and I found that here in California. I made the best decision of my life moving, because I was following my calling and now listening to what my intuition was telling me...
"I had a greater purpose in life. A bigger and better life than the one I had living in Wisconsin."
I had found myself finally and I began a new life...basically that is how it felt. Everything started to feel different for me in a way that I could finally connect and understand what my soul wanted for me. I started to listen to that inner voice that was always in there, but I just never wanted to hear what she had to say to me. I needed to start a healing journey with myself, because there was a lot that I needed to heal. I am so happy that I listened to my soul and built that relationship with myself, because I don’t know where I would be today, if I had not done that.
So, this is why I am sharing my story, so that you can see that it is never too late for you to find your soul's calling. Despite all the challenges that I had, I still fought and went through the hard times. The two things I didn’t lose, was faith and the vision in my mind of how I wanted my life to be. I just had to listen to the guidance in order to achieve what was really my calling and it is the work I currently do today.
So, I invite you to join my spiritual community so that I can help you come into alignment with what your soul is calling you to do in your life.
