I have been chosen as a Season 3 guest writer for the brilliant website, Stratejoy!
Those of you that know me in person, or those of you that have been reading this for a while, know that I've gone through a few whopping breakdowns and major life changes in the last few months... ok, years. I like to call this my Quarterlife Crisis, and it generally makes me feel like a big, bad, good-for-nothing mess of a loser. Well, guess what? I'm not as alone as I thought I was.
Stratejoy is a company created to help women in their 20s & 30s, specifically (though I think anyone of any age can benefit from it), get through their Quarterlife Crises. It's a "tribe of gutsy girls" who are willing to delve into the tough stuff, the questions like "what do I want out of life," and face their fears to come out on the other side happy, whole, and with a game plan. It's literally Strategies For Joy.
So, you may be wondering - um, hello, self-proclaimed mess of a loser, what makes you fit to write for this site? You can't even get your own shit together; how are you going to help others do it? no, you weren't wondering that? well, the devil's advocate in my brain was, so I'm gonna answer it anyway.
That's the beauty of it. Because I'm going through it myself, I can help others get through it too, and show them they're not alone. It gives a purpose to this crisis outside of my own personal growth.
And, I'm super excited to have even MORE reasons to write, which I love to do and had let myself stop for years. So I hope you all will follow me on Stratejoy, as you do here and on Escape Hatcher, and that you'll also read what the other 5 AMAZING women I will be writing with have to say. And, if all this Quarterlife Crisis talk sounds parallel to your own life, please check out The Joy Equation - I'm starting it this week and think it's going to do me heaps of good.
I can't tell you how excited (and grateful & happy) I am for this opportunity and for how it will help me grow! See you on the other side of this QLC!
