Hey New Friend!
I am so happy that you stopped in to learn a little about me, because I cannot wait to get to know you better, too!
If you had asked me a few months ago to introduce myself, it would have gone a little like this:
I am Alyssa & Callie’s mom, Justin’s wife, & an HR Generalist. I have an MBA, obtained my PHR certification, & am currently pursuing a CCP designation. My name is Haylee Galloway.
At first glance, that seems about right.
But something was missing…
I had lost my self in the day to day upkeep & responsibilities of my other roles.
I had even become irritable & resentful, which are two words that I would never have previously used to describe myself.
I felt broken & lost.
The fallout was evident in my performance at work & in my relationships with those I care about most.
My heart was broken, but I had no idea what was wrong or any clue how to fix it.
One day I found myself browsing the aisles at our local bookstore when I suddenly stopped.
I knew what “it” was!
I have always loved reading, & in the last three years had hardly picked up a single book.
What else did I love that was missing from my life?
I started making a list of things that bring out the best in me:
- Arts & Crafts
My “self” had once again awakened.
Quickly the resentment & irritability began to fade.
My results at work improved & I was smiling more.
So, let me introduce myself again- my real self.
I am Haylee! I’m a fun-loving, spontaneous, creative, old soul. I love my family more than words can express, & I am so proud to be the mother of two amazing girls. I am honored to be a wife to my hard-working husband, who is such a believer in my ability to succeed. I enjoy filling any free time with reading, photography, cooking, & exploring.
What a difference!
Now, think about how you would introduce yourself.
I hope you have not allowed your self to get lost along the way, but even if you have, it is never too late to find her again!
As working moms, it is so easy to allow ourselves to get lost in the busyness.
Join me as I work to get to know my real self better while building a sustainable, family-friendly career along the way!
I am so excited to share my journey with you, learn more about you, & I look forward to sharing encouragement along the way.
