I see you.
And, I want you to know something.
I know the sacrifices you are making in the throes of motherhood, managing a household and making ends meet all while still trying to find time for yourself.
You want all your efforts to be noticed and appreciated. You also want to feel like you again, the you that existed before you lost your identity somewhere in between “I do,” and “baby on board,” or “empty nest.”
I know the dichotomy of a heart bursting with love for your family, while at the same time feeling so alone.
I know because I’ve lived (or am living) it.
Meet Mrs. Hines
Hi, My name is Sharon. I’m a 50-year-old wife and mother who has been through the trenches of motherhood and marriage. I’ve wished away the toddler and preschool years, made it through puberty with a daughter, felt my way through the teenage years and somehow managed to raise a baby girl into a young adult who is spreading her wings in California.
All the while, I was fighting for my own identity, desperate to come out from behind the shadows of roles and expectations. As the scales fell from my eyes, so did my tolerance for status quo and I started cutting the ties that bound me…
I quit my job as a teacher after 18 years in the classroom. I began a years-long fight for my marriage, and I started on a continual journey to better health.
As a result, my identity is no longer tied to being a wife, mother or teacher. I’m growing increasingly more comfortable in my own skin, and I’m getting better at being me, at becoming, which has freed me to live a more mindful and intentional life.
It’s from this place of sure-footing I find myself turning around and extending my hand to you as a mentor and friend. If you’re looking for someone who will encourage and exhort you in this stage of life, I’m your huckleberry.
Your Next Step
The first step is to declutter your physical space. This single act will help you turn chaos into calm, make room for what matters most, and live in the moment. I know because it’s been true over and over again in my own life.
Don’t worry. I know how overwhelming clutter is. So, I’ve created a free cheat sheet to help you conquer the clutter that’s been holding you back.
See you in class,
