“It was honestly so difficult, and it really shouldn’t have been. There were many tears and it was agonizing but I really think I knew all along the decision that I was meant to make. I just got derailed by society and expectations and the idea of ‘What if I’m missing something?’.”
Today’s episode features Elizabeth who started the facebook group Childfree World Travelers about 3 and 1/2 years ago. She thought she was a pretty big deal when her group reached 100. Today, the group has over 4,000 members with 11 moderators all over the World, sharing their travel tips, advice and stories. Elizabeth is a helper and connector at heart and understands the importance of seeing and supporting others whether through the meet ups she creates or the barre classes she teaches.
We talked about how this was Elizabeth's "coming out" as a childfree woman and the amazing feeling she had when she proclaimed her choice to be child free. We talked about how a feeling of being dismissed years ago for not having children still irks her and how its so important to Pay Attention in your life and not just go with the flow of big decisions.
