In 2009 my family and I experienced a major shift in our priorities. We were forced into the realization that life is not about what we have, but whom we are with. That realization lead me down the path which has brought me to this point. Along the way I’ve discovered that families are more than just broken…they’re comfortable being broken.
Although I find research fascinating, I won’t bore you with all the details here – I’ll save it for other articles…but suffice it to say that there is an alarming trend away from relationship and family values.
See, I noticed that while my family was realigning our priorities, becoming more responsible with our resources, and desiring more meaningful relationships, other families were falling deeper in debt, spending less time together, and preferring solitude to solidarity.
My friends were fighting with their husbands even as my marriage was blossoming. Children at the playground were increasingly rude and ill-mannered. Parents were on the phone rather than playing with their kids. Families in the grocery store were fighting and treating each other horribly.
As I started my personal training business, I met people who, by society’s standards, should have been rich and happy, but they were broken, in debt and seeking solutions. I only knew what my family and I were doing – so I started to write it down. It seemed to be working, but now I can honestly tell you – IT WORKED!
We made it out of the American Dream ALIVE and I’m happy to say we are no longer living that pipe dream.
My family was sick, over-weight, out of shape, desperately in debt, stressed out, disconnected, and miserable.
Today we are healthy. At my oldest son’s well visit the doctor commented how he hadn’t seen us in a year and how unusual that is. We are active, debt free, stress free, happily connected in meaningful relationships, and joyful.
Disclaimer: We don’t live in a bubble. We are a real family who still stumbles, gets annoyed at times, has dust bunnies under the furniture and dirty laundry on the bathroom floor. But we love each other well. We are stress free and living an abundant life in the midst of the chaos around us.
Doesn’t that sound dreamy?
- Wouldn’t it be wonderful to feel excited to come home?
- Don’t you wish you could have a real conversation with your children, to connect with and understand them?
- How would it feel to argue with your spouse without raising your voice and actually walk away with a mutual agreement and smiles on your faces?
- What if your family was really healthy?
- What if chores weren’t dreadful?
- What if you weren’t so busy???
How would that feel?
