I remember when I was working corporate, running at a thousand miles a minute, saying “yes” to everything, I didn’t know how to relax or what to do with downtime. I wasn’t tapped into my creativity - I was your typical enneagram 3 overachiever working my way up the corporate ladder while checking things off my to-do list. I felt accomplished but burnt out.
But with one phone call everything changed.
My husband got a job opportunity in Pittsburgh, over 2,000 miles away from everything we knew in Canada. All of that running myself into the ground didn't mean anything because I left all behind anyways.
I got to Pittsburgh and I felt like I had lost my identity - I was so connected to what I did, how many hours I worked and what my position was that I didn't know who I was outside of that.
One time, I was in the back of an Uber and the driver casually asked me what I did. I went into a long explanation (...he definitely got more than he bargained for) about what I did. It was like my identity was wrapped up in my title, but realized by taking it away I didn’t know who I was outside of that - that was a wake up call to stop taking time for granted and intentionally creating the life I wanted.
I saw so many women around me with the same story - working themselves into the ground, no time for family, fueled by coffee & carbs, living for the weekends & having their entire identities wrapped up in the title they held.
I wanted to create a life I was passionate about, excited about, proud of, one that lit me up. I wanted a life where I could be home with my kiddos, go to yoga in the middle of the day, travel, vacation, be creative and I wanted to help other women do the same.
From here 86th & Trend was born.
Going forward my mission is to help other women create a life on their terms.
