Time to Discover Me

Well, it has been nearly two months since I last posted something on Discovering Me. Before I start shaming myself, and apologizing to all of you, let me say there has been a good reason. I recently made a major life decision that will permanently alter my future and the success of Discovering Me. Do you hear the dramatic music playing in your head?

What did you do, Megan? Good question. After working in the field of marketing, public relations and event planning for over 16 years, I “retired” and Friday, October 2, 2015 was my last day. I stepped away from a good paying job, a good reputation and success, great people all in the pursuit of one thing… my dream.

DETOUR: Walking away from my job, and especially the people and relationships I treasure, was very hard for me on several levels, but God called me to step out and find out this past March and I answered. I know He will fill any voids my colleagues and I may be feeling. My writing journey will be chronicled in Discovering Me. I know you can’t wait to read the book – me neither!

What is your dream, Megan? Thank you for asking! My dream is to become an inspirational speaker for young women. Throughout my 20s and 30s – I am just 18 months from turning 40 – I struggled with self-confidence and self-acceptance. Because of my personal struggle, I deeply desire to help and encourage women in their 20s and 30s who are facing similar “self” issues. Only in the last five years or so has that dream evolved into writing a book; Discovering Me came to me almost 10 years ago but as an album title… that’s a whole other story. Naturally to be a public speaker you need some type of platform to speak from and a product to sell. Cue the book.

Discovering Me will explore my journey of becoming who I am and how I found my confidence in Christ by responding to His call of, “Megan, discover Me.” But the driving force of Discovering Me is helping others discover the truth about who they – who YOU – are!

“For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.” Jeremiah 29:11 [AMP]

“Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day.” Psalm 139:13-16 [The Message]

  2. Megan, there is so much goodness here. I love your zaniness (to use your word from an earlier post) and honesty and himor. You crack me up almost as often as you crack yourself up. I can’t wait to read the next post-so much so I signed up for your email list so it gets right to my inbox! So inspired by you and your courage to follow your heart and your dream (and as we all know, a dream is a wish your heart makes…) All my love to you!

    • Sweet friend, thank you so much for your affirmation. Means more than I can express. May I always have the ability to crack us both up! And so true, a dream is a wish your heart makes (nice add-in!)
