Hola amigo

¡Soy Dana!

Soy esposa, madre de dos y madrastra de uno. Nos encanta abrazar al gato más genial que conocemos llamado Leo. Como mujer, me encanta entregarme a mis placeres no tan culpables, bajar la velocidad para disfrutar de la sonrisa de mis pequeños y rodearme de aquellos que me levantan para poder conquistar mis días bellamente caóticos.  

Viajar y experimentar nuevas culturas es lo que me encanta hacer en mis grandes aventuras. Después de un día completo en el trabajo y de mantenerme firme en la maternidad, recurro a mi máquina de coser mientras me conecto con amigos y comunidades. Lo que me mantiene en marcha en todo lo que hago es amar y divertirme con el hombre que me mantiene íntegro.

A medida que me conozca, aprenderá que soy un extrovertido enérgico. La gente a menudo me llama camaleón y es fácil hablar con él. Soy un libro abierto cuando pasas el rato conmigo y vivo auténtica e intencionalmente. ¡Espera un minuto! No ha sido así en todas las estaciones de mi vida. Mi yo completo y mi propósito completo fueron rápidamente ensombrecidos.

La maternidad trajo sentimientos de aislamiento, sentirse perdida, abrumada, ansiedad y rabia. Lidé con estos sentimientos y obstáculos por un tiempo hasta que la depresión me golpeó rápido y duro. Nos mudamos de nuestra fundación estable en Indiana y me estaba ahogando en la maternidad. Hicimos un movimiento voluntario que llenó nuestros corazones de muchas maneras, pero también dejó un vacío que no vi venir. Tenía 36 semanas de embarazo cuando aterrizamos en nuestro hogar para siempre en Cleveland.  

Después del estrés de mudarme, convertirme en madre de dos hijos y luchar por reconstruir mi comunidad local y mis amistades, enfrenté mi lugar más oscuro y tuve que tomar medidas. Sabía que solo tenía UNA vida para vivir y los años eran cortos, realmente cortos. ¡Aunque los días eran tan largos!  

Di un paso a la vez y un día a la vez. Fortalecí mi mentalidad con la superación personal diaria, fui auténtico y vulnerable en la comunidad y me negué a dejar pasar un día sin al menos 10 minutos de tiempo para mí.

 

¡Renuncié a mi carrera de enfermería en la primavera de 2020 para ser un entrenador de tiempo completo para USTED! Creé 5 Steps Back to You and Me For Mine Mama Box, que es una divertida experiencia guiada en comunidad para que finalmente puedas alcanzar la vida que TÚ mereces, deseas y puedes tener. Mi bandeja de entrada está siempre abierta, así que siéntete libre de pasar y saludar.

Before finding my creative side of life, I was bored and drained. Life felt monotonous and mundane; like you, I was stuck.

 

After years of dedicating myself to a

career

marriage and a

family... I lost my spark. Even after achieving my dreams, there was still something missing.

 

I will never forget sitting at the kitchen table with my husband on a Saturday afternoon. The kids were napping and I admitted I was depressed, I lost myself, I knew something had to change.

 

I told him I was isolated and I needed friendships and creative outlets. I needed more, to be more for our family.

 

I didn't have anything to look forward to for myself or anything to be proud of as a woman.

 

My energy and motivation were drained by life’s demands and societal pressures, scrolling and watching everyone else's life. 

 

I felt trapped with no vision or clarity for what I needed to do to be happier.

I tried everything: changes to my lifestyle, my routine. They were all band-aids. Nothing worked. 

 

I demanded an opportunity for solitude and self reflection. It first started with making room for myself at home. Then it was a week in Hawaii, a change of scenery and space for paying attention to myself. Sitting on the airplane, I took advantage of this head space and made one decision, buying a sewing machine for an ongoing hobby.

PS. you don't need a trip to Hawaii, this just happened to be my coinkedink moment.

Finally, I stopped making excuses. I got started taking one arduous step at a time. I didn’t worry about the outcome. I didn’t worry about messing up. 

 

I found an effective way to communicate my need to be creative to my husband. I prioritized time and found things I could easily do with my kids present or while I was thinking about the never ending to do list. I blocked my time, set up my space so I could hop in and out when the creative juices started flowing.

My life changed dramatically and in a way I never knew was possible for me. I became happier, more light hearted, more fun.

 

I experienced less monotony; I always had something to look forward to and someone to talk to. 

 

I saw more joy in my life. I felt less of a burden on others and started manifesting a path of what I desired and was perfectly aligned with in my inner soul and purpose.

 

I attracted true friendships, connected in community and lived in abundance for the  opportunity to grow.
