A New Beginning
by Erin Prewitt on February 23rd, 2015

I am  ready to share something I have not yet shared publicly…losing Chris, my Husband of 15 years, so suddenly ,was devastatingly heart breaking for me.  I had moments where I could feel the loss hover above me, threatening to crush me.  I was a 38 year old woman who was happily married to a healthy 38 year old man who went out running one morning and never returned.  Under the inordinate pain, sadness, and fear I had moments where I was afraid I wouldn't be able to rise above the wreckage of losing my lifelong love.  As I shared with other people who have experienced this type of loss; I realize how easily it can crush the ones left behind.
For me, losing Chris was either going to crush me, or fire me up to create my best life yet to come.  I just needed to figure out how I can do this without my biggest supporter, my Prewitt.  I had to actively choose to rise up and be intent in creating my best life.  I knew I needed to do this, not only do for me, but for my daughter, my family, and my beloved community.  After all, these are the people who carried me through my darkest times with their love and kindness. 
For months I didn’t understand what that greater life was.  I trusted that if I worked on healing and forgiving that the “what” would eventually be made clear for me. 
Today I am excited to share with you that one of the big “whats” has become very clear to me. I am going out on my own …. I am taking all the skills, experience, and talents I have developed over my 11 year career as a coach, trainer, and speaker to LAUNCH MY OWN COMPANY!!  You know, Chris and I would talk about our dreams, we visited them each new year, and made plans on how to achieve them…. one of my dreams was to strike out on my own and create a business.  My dream business would focus around professional values of integrity & collaboration.  It would focus on my belief in the incredible potential of the human spirit, and my commitment to deliver these messages grounded in inspiration and kindness. 
Many of you know of Chris’s belief in taking risks and building a life of adventure…this is my big risk, my big adventure and I know Chris would be so proud.  I choose to honor Chris’ belief system by stepping out of my comfort zone into this new adventure.  You know, losing Chris has helped me to see the world a bit differently. 
Now, I see possibility where someone like me can carve out a career, a place for my company.  I see opportunity for this adventure to not only bring me great joy, but maybe, just maybe (crossing my fingers and wish on a star) be an adventure that can help make the world a better place.  That is my heart’s desire.   
With an enthusiastic & humble heart I invite you to come and take a peek at my website.
