The Journey to 'Success is Complicated'
I thought about how we have guidelines and milestones for kids—things to expect at certain ages, ways to support their growth. But when it comes to being an adult? It often feels like we’re thrown into the deep end, expected to swim without a clear direction. Society gives us broad milestones: graduate, get a job, maybe get married, perhaps have kids. But what about the internal journey? The feelings of being lost, overwhelmed, or even unfulfilled?
Navigating adulthood is no easy feat. I learned this first-hand. As a therapist, I had tools and techniques to dive into emotions. But as I took on roles as a wife, mom, and VP, I realized something: my professional knowledge didn’t fully equip me to juggle these roles. Emotions were just a part of the story.
I found myself asking: “If I’m feeling this gap in knowledge, how can I confidently guide other adults?” I had to do something.
That’s when I decided to delve deeper into adult development. My diverse experiences in HR, coaching, and mental health gave me a unique lens. I saw trends, identified gaps, and noticed areas we often overlook in our adult journey.
It became clear that adults needed a roadmap too, beyond just societal expectations. This realization led to the creation of Success is Complicated. A straightforward name because let’s face it, success and adulthood can be messy. But that’s okay.
I’ve walked this path. And through ‘Success is Complicated’, I aim to share insights, provide direction, and ensure you know you’re not alone in this. Adulthood isn’t a solo journey, and together, we can navigate its complexities.
