Have you ever reached a crisis point of life… where you realize that you have drifted to a place that you never intended to go and now don’t even know where you are headed? That was me 6 years ago. I vividly remember the day, it was the fifteenth anniversary of my twenty-fifth birthday (just so you know, I will never admit to be older than 25), when I became aware of the fact that I had no personal identity.
Somehow, during the course of twenty years of marriage and raising 3 children, I had completely lost myself in my family. On the surface that sounds like a noble thing, but in reality, I had no identity that did not involve someone else; I was Bret’s wife, Derek’s mom, Brittany’s mom and Hunter’s mom. I had no role that just involved “Meschelle.” At that point, I had no personal goals, dreams or ambitions.
As I became brave enough to talk about this to my friends, I realized that many of them were experiencing a similar crisis. Even though all of our stories were different, many of us were at a point of life that we never intended to go and we didn’t know how to change direction. Have you ever felt that way? Do you feel like your life is out of balance in some way?
My journey to find balance began six years ago. I have learned some tough lessons along the way that I would love to share with you. That’s why I began this ministry – to join with other women who are experiencing similar things with me and work together to become women of purpose and fulfillment. What’s your current struggle look like right now? How are you working to find balance? Please let me know and we can help each other and pray for each other as we journey through life together.
