possible for women. I didn’t want to be like my sisters, and even though I was quite smart, I wasn’t good at my sisters’ talents. I could do them, but they weren’t my natural strengths. That was my life for many years. While I did well at what I put my mind to, it eventually cost me my health and my marriage. And it kept my true talents hidden until the year I turned 40 when I became very ill from severe burnout. During my recovery, I committed to changing my life. As scary as making changes would be, I knew it couldn’t be worse than the suffering I was experiencing.

I took the leap and dramatically changed my life, finally following the deeper calling that I had felt within for many years. When later I became a spiritual guide, I realized that deeper calling had been my soul urging me to live the life I was born to live – not the life I had been conditioned to live.

So many times, we feel the deeper urge to live a more fulfilling life. How often do we ignore or drown out those urges out of fear of the change it could bring? It takes courage to be a star in your own life; we must let go of shrinking to fit into whatever version of ourselves we have deemed safe and acceptable. When we shrink, we rob ourselves of the joy and fulfillment that is our birthright—the life our soul, the essence of who we are.

You can have the life you were born to live. You can be a star in your own life. I know. I did it, and now I help others be stars in their own lives. It takes courage, commitment and action. The first step is accepting the reality of where you are in your life. The second step is getting clear that you are meant for and desire something greater. The third step is making a commitment to listen to your soul—the little voice deep inside that’s been whispering it’s time for something better. The fourth step is to get support, whether it’s a close friend, a coach, spiritual guide, your partner, or a support group to help you start to act.

It doesn’t have to be a wholesale change to be a star in your life. Sometimes it’s small changes that can make a profound difference. The key is to commit to yourself. Commit to be the star that you were born to be.
