Hannah Brindley here.
I’ve known since I was young that I didn’t belong in the 9 to 5 setting. Let me explain.
I always thought I belonged in the healthcare field. I even received my Bachelor’s of Science from Mercer University in Biology. But guys, I couldn’t decide what I wanted to do in the healthcare field. I went back and forth from nursing to being a doctor to a pharmacist… And the list goes on. Honestly, I’m pretty sure my advisor just expected me to come back every month to tell her my new career path! LOL. But really – I was that indecisive.
While I was volunteering at a Children’s Hospital, I could not seem to be passionate about the career path I was choosing. And I honestly felt extremely guilty for that. I was helping sick children! But y’all, I just realized that I didn’t want to be in that environment. I just knew. I enjoyed being there for the kids and I absolutely ADORED them, but I knew this type of career wasn’t for me.
It wasn’t really until I started reflecting on my own life that I realized not going into the healthcare field was okay. It was more than okay, actually. Because I knew what I wanted to pursue.
Actually, if I’m being completely honest, I knew what I wanted to do about 4 years prior to the realization. But I buried the thought and I kept it there because I thought it was far too radical. I thought I would never succeed at it. “That’s not a real job,” I would tell myself. “That’s not what you went to school for,” another voice in my head chimed in. I was letting my fear and self-doubt stop me from pursuing what I knew deep down was my mission.
I believe that many women live their lives in fear. I know I do! And I’m on a mission to change that.
I am on a mission to live a life full of vibrancy. I created The Moxie Babe to establish a sisterhood where we take control of our fears together and embark on our personal mission. With this, we can inspire all women to dig deep and find their inner strength, courage, and creativity. I want this sisterhood to provide support to you when you fight your innermost battles and celebrate with you when you conquer them. This is a safe place where you can be authentically yourself. I’m on a mission to free your inner moxie babe.
This is exactly how The Moxie Babe Project (AKA #TMBproject) was born.
