rediscovering my interior creature

I, Jaclyn Michelle, am a recovering workaholic. After spending 13 years working in education and publishing in both the public and private sector, I awoke one morning to discover that my career had eaten my life. After years of keeping unhealthy hours and living out of a suitcase, I had come to the realization that I simply had no idea who I was outside of what I did for a living, and found that deeply disturbing.

Channeling Elton John, it seemed to me that I had lived my life like a candle in the wind, never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in.  And I know I’m not alone. I’ve met hundreds of women over the years who have expressed feeling similarly: professionally exhausted and personally erased. Sensing that my aforementioned candle had burned the eff out, I quit the 60-80 hour a week GRIND and took a giant step back to heal body/mind/spirit and to find my ikigai.

I’ve taken what I’m passionate about (photography and research), what I’m good at (writing and teaching), what the world needs (badass strong emotionally/spiritually healthy women in the workplace) and what I can be paid for (not yet sponsored, but open to it!) and created interior creature, a community of fearless females hungry to reconnect with our higher selves on the path to manifesting the happiness that is our birthright.
