Being Happy is NOT Enough

I might get a lot of flack for this but... I truly believe that you can be happy, but still dissatisfied with your life.

If you met me 3 or 4 years ago, you would have assumed life was rocking! I was very happy, I was loving our expat life at that stage in Chongqing and subsequently Taipei. I was making the most of every opportunity, not only for myself but for the girls too. For us as a family, we were really enjoying our time in Asia - it was all the girls knew.

But I also had this thing in my gut, something I knew wasn’t quite right. I didn’t really know what it was, but I knew I needed more. I was happy, but I was dissatisfied. 

When you ignore how you're really feeling, it manifests in your reactions to others, in your eating habits, in the amount of wine you drink. And I was doing all the wrong things! Over indulging, and generally not taking great care of myself. 

Reading a blog post by Lucille, Expitterpattica, literally flipped my world upside down. Suddenly I realised that I could have more, and I started to understand what that looked like for me - I wanted my own business. 

For some of you it is rediscovering a long lost hobby, or starting a new one. For others it’s learning a new skill or language. For many it’s giving back and getting involved with volunteer work. And for others it is returning to part time work.

But rediscovering your dreams & passions and changing your mindset is THE solution for having more. Which is why it breaks my heart 💔  that so many expat mums feel the time isn't right for them to create change in their life.

 

Which is why over the next two weeks I am running a number of Live Workshops - Happiness is NOT The Key To A Great Life. In this Live Workshop, you'll learn the 3 myths that could be holding you back, and what you can do instead!

I’m going to show you how you can make the ultimate shift from struggling to find time for anything extra, feeling stretched too thin and confused as to what to do next; to feeling fulfilled, to expanding your time and energy and finally having more of what you REALLY want.

It is the right time for you to do this!

For too long, expat mums have put themselves second to their families wants and needs. 

Now is the time to change this. 2021 is your opportunity to take back your life, rediscover what you want more of, and make that happen.

Join me in this workshop to discover the 3 myths that will keep you stuck, AND start taking action during the workshop to change it!

This Live Workshop Is A Must Attend if…

  • you're a new expat mum and you’ve given up your career to follow your partner abroad and now you’re wondering what does this new life now mean for me?
  • an experienced expat mum and you’re great at moving the family around, you’ve done the volunteering and you’ve served your time on the PTA. But you’re tired of always giving to others, you crave more for you.
  • a career mum and let’s face it you’ve had a fabulous career and loved every moment of it, but suddenly you’re wondering if there is more you could be doing.

You choose the time and date that suits you best, and I promise you will walk away with greater clarity and actions you will decide on during the workshop.
