Have you ever felt as though you were living two lives?
One that everyone sees…
And one happening in your mind…
So did I. I seemingly had it all: a successful career, a happy marriage, and two wonderful children. Yet, I felt unfulfilled, unhappy—and couldn’t figure out why. Until my husband asked during an argument, “Why do you act like that?” This pivotal moment created a wave of changes. I stopped looking outside myself and carved out time to understand myself and why I reacted the way I did. From this came The Selfish Hour and a determination to redefine the word selfish. I redefined selfish to mean Taking care of oneself first, and filling your cup so you can pour more into others’. Being selfish means you care so much about others that you put yourself first to be your best for yourself and everyone else. Selfish means love for oneself first.
Using humor, grace, and vulnerability I share how my childhood created a lens through which I viewed a life fueled by anxiety, expectations, family dysfunction, and alcohol. By shifting my thoughts, I completely transformed my entire life...and it all began with one hour a day…The Selfish Hour.
