Wife of an extremely supportive husband, mother of two beautiful girls, a prosperous career, the highest degree in the land, a championship tennis team, and lots of people who loved me...but that just didn’t cut it. I experienced a looming sense of sadness; a flatness that I simply could not explain. I literally found myself crying, on the floor of my closet, pleading to God to give me my passion back. I came to realize that it wasn’t my passion that I’d lost, it was that I had forgotten why I was sent here; I was hungry for purpose. Sure, I had achieved a certain level of success (a long time educational leader-teacher, principal, assistant superintendent), but my heart longed for significance. My in-the-closet meltdown placed me squarely on the road to an awakened me--living, learning, being, and doing what I was sent to this earth to do.
