When I first went through Lifebook in January of 2010, I was in a place in my life where I wasn’t happy, I wasn’t moving forward, and I was in a relationship that needed to end.

I was in a rut, and I couldn’t see where I was going. I kept thinking, “there has to be more to life than this.” Looking back now, my big problem was self-confidence. I also spent a ridiculous amount of time worrying about what others thought about how I was living my life.

I had spent my life with no idea of what I wanted to do with myself. I didn’t know what I wanted to be. In fact, I wondered how Lifebook was going to help me if I didn’t even know which direction to go. I went anyway. After going through the process, I started to realize that I did kind of know what I wanted to do, but I never really thought I could do it… and therefore, I never really thought it through enough to get the complete picture.

When I left my Lifebook Session I was excited, but also wary about whether I was really ever going to do anything with it.

My big goals that I left with were as follows:

  • End my relationship (I did this the day I got home)
  • Change my surroundings (I thought this meant redecorate my house)
  • Improve my self-confidence
  • Become a jewelry designer by January 20112 (I had never taken a class)
  • Stop spending time with negative people

I also wrote in my ideal Life Vision that I would travel to Africa to see the mountain gorillas and also meet people to help sell their jewelry in the US, therefore helping to improve their lives. I also wrote that I would see my sister a lot, because we would (eventually) live in the same place. She lived in Seattle at the time and I lived in San Diego, with no plans to leave.

I think I only looked at my Lifebook a handful of times over the next two years…

This past December, as I was on a plane, I read through my Lifebook and I couldn’t believe it. I literally cried on the plane at the realization of my new life…

  • I now live in Seattle, and I love it. I see my sister all the time. We live 6 blocks from each other.
  • I have great new friends, and almost all of them are super positive and also believe there is more to life.
  • I have learned to design jewelry, and I received my first official order January 24, 2011 and several others.
  • I still have some work to do on my self-confidence, but it is MUCH better than 2 years ago.
  • I stopped worrying about what other people think of how I live my life, and it has allowed me to really live my life.
  • I traveled to Africa, and I hiked the mountain to see the mountain gorillas in Rwanda.
  • I stayed with a Maasai tribe in Kenya and have plans to help the women sell their jewelry in the US.

The biggest thing that has changed is that I have a life vision. I can see what I want to do with my life, and I believe I can get there.

What I found was that I had accomplished so much just by making myself aware of the fact that I wanted these things, and that I could find a way to get them. Before, I thought they would be great, but I never thought I could have them.

I feel so fortunate that I believe I can have the life that I want to create. I know a lot of people never even have that thought. I am so glad I have Lifebook to help me break it down into manageable pieces, and I do believe I will get there one day. In the meantime, the journey has been a lot of fun so far!
