Hi, I’m Shauna. I’m a Blogger who is currently studying to become a Certified Breakthrough Coach. More importantly, I’m a Christian, wife, and mom to a 22 year old, an 11 year old, and a Step-Mom to a 15 year old; all who have very different personalities.
I live in Illinois with my husband, 11 year old son, and our two puppydogs who think they are human. Btw that’s Illinois not Illi-noise 😂 and no I don’t live in or near Chicago.
It may sound like I am living my dream life but the truth is I do things differently than others, fail more times than I succeed, and always overthink things (except for the puppydogs – everyone should have puppydogs.)
When I was 8, I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. I found myself always writing stories in my notebooks and letters to people that didn’t even exist. Once I kept a journal where I wrote letters to Jesus. True story.
As I got older I tried to write a book but just couldn’t seem to get the words onto the paper. It was like my brain went to sleep the moment I sat down to type.
As the years went by I gave up on writing that is until I heard about blogging. So I jumped on the bandwagon and started a blog!
That was nearly 5 years and 4 blogs ago! No matter what I did I just couldn’t figure the blogging thing out. So in March of 2019, I took a leap of faith and invested in a course that I just knew was going to help me become a full time blogger!
Sadly, it didn’t happen. Not right away anyway.
That was also 2 blogs ago. Right when I was ready to give up, my dear husband encouraged me to keep going.
As crazy as it is I had this nudging thought that just would not go away. No matter what I did that thought kept creeping back in…
“Blog about Decluttering and Organization”
No. I don’t want to. I would say to myself. But it wasn’t long and that exact thought was back. Just lingering in my subconscious.
This went on for about a week. The thing is my husband and mom both call me the “Throw Away Queen” because well I like to throw stuff away.
Looking back I believe with all my heart that was God directing me. But I was too busy being hesitant and trying to follow my own path. After all I had been praying for guidance on where to go with this blog. That was the end of November 2019. By the beginning of December I had this blog up and running.
But I still wasn’t sure what to do with it. So I wrote a few articles and pinned a few pins to Pintrest. I did that until March when my dad went into Cardiac Arrest. I was so heart broken I couldn’t focus. Two months passed before I returned to my keyboard.
Thankfully my dad pulled through and after months of being in the hospital with no visitors allowed, due to Covid-19, he is back home and doing great! And I’m back to doing what I love most! Helping women just like you declutter and organize your home and life!
When I sat back down at my desk on May 4th. I prayed to God. I asked him to guide me. I made the promise to do what he wanted and not what I wanted. I also made a promise to myself to stay consistent…. no matter what! That meant keeping a clutter free home and clutter free mind. The home part was definitely not a problem!
It July 1st as I type this. I decided to make over the blog and get a theme that is faster since well this whole blogging thing just sort of took off! Thanks to readers like you! And because of that I decided to rewrite My Story. It is important to me that you understand you are not just a reader. You are my friend!
