About Linda

Hi everyone! I’m Linda Hayles. First I have to tell you that I am honored and humbled that you’re even here, on my page, reading this. I’m grateful for your support and I just have to let you know.

I started this blog after years of just “thinking about it”.

For years friends and co-workers came to me for advise on just about anything that was going on in their life. I would happily give it to them and they would always tell me that I said something profound to them or that I really changed their life. Some would even call me their life-saver. Inside myself, I’d laugh and then become angry because as much as I was helping them, my own life was falling apart.

I dealt with bitter and angry feelings about the way I was raised. I was dealing with devastating marital issues. I felt like my life was going no where and I felt trapped. It seemed that everyone else was pushing my buttons and I reacted to all of it.

Just 2 1/2 years ago I decided to take CONTROL of my life. I decided that I would finish my college education. I decided that I had worth. I decided that I controlled that vehicle called “Linda’s Life”. I decided that I would not sit in the passenger seat anymore. I decided that I would sit in the driver seat. I decided that I really enjoyed helping others and I decided that no one could make me feel anything I did not want to feel.

As I kept helping, motivating and inspiring others I wanted to start a blog and create a website but I also felt fear. I felt fear of people laughing or people never visiting my site but mainly I felt fear that if it did take off, if it did work that I wouldn’t know how to handle the happiness. Is that crazy or what?

I don’t know if you can relate to any of what you just read. I just want you to know that I’m a real person.

I have a passion for acting courageously. I’m living my life out loud and I want you to know that you can do it too!

I want you to FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAY!

    Only read the About Me part but already I feel inspired to start a company or something! You know, make it my way, something I can help create and build on, something to leave the 9 to 5 gone. That’s been my dream.

    Thanks for the encouragement and positive feeling you give me.

  5. Colin! Thanks for the positive comment! I’m humbled that you credit a great idea to having read my blog. I’ll take it! 🙂 Thanks for even stopping by and reading!
