For years, I used to think I could do it all.
Spoiler alert: I wasn’t wrong. I pretty much did it all.
But that life was so empty. So unfulfilling.
For those of you that don’t know me: I’m Krista.
I’m a member of the #3Under3 club and a two time member of the #2Under2 club. I’m a corporate lawyer. A second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and Tang Soo Do. A child of God. A total birth junkie. A nearly 30 year Celine Dion fanatic. A Montessori and conscious parenting advocate. A former codependent and empath. A survivor. You may have an idea where the “superwoman” concept came from.
Today, I’m in recovery.
My addiction was never to a drug or chemical, but to myself. I loved thinking I could do it all. Heck, I even loved trying to do it all. And I definitely enjoyed the praise lavished when people thought I was doing it all.
Friends, that was no way to live a life.
I’m a superwoman in recovery, friends, taking my journey one day at a time. I am passionate about a few different areas and you’ll find me talking about them here and elsewhere on social media, especially the Montessori method of education, being a working mom / lawyer mom, life with 3 kids under 3, and all things birth! Because all that is so much fun.
But the thrust of my blog is really about my journey to and through codependency as I figure it out, one day at a time. I’m an empath, a narcissistic abuse victim, and a survivor of all sorts of betrayal trauma.
I’m just a girl trying to be her authentic self.
Join me on my journey!
Because there’s a Celine Dion song for everything, and I’m a little crazy obsessed about Celine Dion, I leave you with the theme song for my blog…
I am recovering the faith of a child
by a part of my heart was reckless and wild
I am recovering the hope that I lost
The part of my soul that paid the cost
Little by little, day by day
One step at a time
Shake off the devil, take back my peace of mind
-Celine Dion, Recovering
