The Journey to Finding My Worth

I have spent the majority of my life wondering and dreaming of what my life would look like once I became an adult. I went through college just waiting for the day that I would graduate and get a “big girl job.” As I stood on stage in my cap and gown I could taste the freedom that a full-time job would provide me. It took a few months but I signed that full-time contract and began my adult life. Since that day nothing has turned out the way I thought it would.

I graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and have literally worked every job under the sun. From Starbucks Barista to Office Manager for a Rehab Clinic to Admissions Coordinator for an Elementary School… I have done it all! 

I finally feel like I have found the place where I belong, where I fit in. But as I laid in bed the other night wondering what other turns life has in store for me it dawned on me… I have found my calling! The place where I belong, the place where I fit in and while it doesn’t deposit money into my checking account each month, it gives me smiles, and hugs, and kisses.

I have been searching my whole life for a career and I am proud to say that I have found it. I am proud of where I work and what I do every day! But I am also called to be a momma first! I have been searching for fulfillment and gratification and it was right in front of me all along. My calling to be a momma wasn’t one that I necessarily was looking for but it has been the most rewarding job I have ever had. And while I don’t think I will retire from my day job anytime soon it is humbling to know that what I was searching for all along is right in front of me at home.

Elle, a New Orleans native, loves being a mom while growing her career at a local Catholic Elementary School. She loves working and volunteering in the community but can't wait to come home and spend time with her boys Charlie and Andy. Elle met her husband, Fletcher, in 2013 while she was attending the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. When she met him she knew that her life would never be boring again. She loves calling Lafayette home and is very excited she gets to raise her children here.
