About Felicia Taghizdeh

In 2005 I graduated in the top of my Ivy League Law School class, convinced that I would be a successful attorney, happy mom, and loving wife.  And that’s the path I headed down.  When my sweet new son was 8 weeks old I started working 12-hour days as a law clerk on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. 

Life was challenging and exhausting.   Does this sound familiar to you?  I nursed my son all night long, and pumped during the day.  My husband was establishing his own practice so I also managed the legal, financial, and personnel issue that went along with that.  I was overwhelmed at being a new mother, and wondered, “Where did I go wrong?”  Maybe you have thought the same thing.

I had the prestigious job, a plastic-surgeon husband, beautiful house, and sweet baby boy.  How could I have everything that I had wanted, and feel like I hated it?  So I left my law firm to be a stay-at-home mom.  My daughter was born that year, and for a little while things felt ok.

Then I started to feel like my brain was withering.  It was taking 90% of my attention to watch my kids, and only 20% of my brain.  I grew more and more unhappy, and it showed.  I yelled at my kids, was pretty negative about life in general, and lost my connection to my husband.  I felt guilt about not being happy.

After a particularly harrowing family vacation during which I missed most of the yoga classes I wanted to attend, yelled at my son in front of everyone, and managed to lose my daughter--(she was found within 10 minutes, but OMG was that awful)--I hit a low point.

I knew something had to change.  I couldn’t spend the next 18 years feeling like I was wasting my degree, being an unhappy and resentful mom, and not living my true purpose.

I prayed, meditated, got some help, and with equal parts head and heart, decided to follow my passion and help others realize that they create their experience of life. 

Now I cherish and enjoy the time I spend with my kids, actively nurture a loving and supportive relationship with my husband, and love the work that I do.  I am excited to live each day!

I’m by no means perfect--my husband’s favorite thing to say when I start to get stressed is “hey, what about your coaching skills?--but I am conscious and I know that I am not at the mercy of life.  I create my life, every day, every minute, every moment.  

Does this sound like what you want?  If you are looking for a better way to live your life, to get rid of the exhaustion and disappointment, then you are in the right place.
