Hello! I’m Kristi Conradie.
I’m a wife and mom with 2 teenage children and 2 rescue dogs. I was born, raised and met my husband in California, moved to Nevada where our children were born, then moved to Texas for my husband’s business. We now live in Franklin, TN in a house that my husband and I designed and built that was once a dream… a dream to experience life as a gift and filled with joy, each day, not one day when.
I stopped settling for a daily life experience I did not love, and instead started to embrace what I truly wanted. I wanted to experience joy, not something is wrong all the time. I wanted to experience peace not something to do all the time. I wanted to experience love, not worry and fear all the time. I wanted to experience enough, not lack all the time… lack of time, money, resources and worthiness.
I guess you could say I have always been searching for joy and seeking to know who I am. I’ve constantly been trying to figure out how life works so I could relax and enjoy my life. I’m always reading the latest self-discovery book or attending a workshop that would hopefully help me love my life, and love myself. Only to be left feeling overwhelmed with more to do or feeling stuck not knowing what to do or frustrated waiting for something or someone to change before I could experience joy.
Why does it seem so hard to enjoy my life?
Every time I asked myself that question, the answer I got was “BE YOU!”
My soul kept saying, “Be YOU!” and my self kept saying, “How?”
And, of course, all those books I was reading kept saying the same thing… just be yourself, know yourself, awaken yourself, live in the present. It seemed impossible. Where do I start? What do I do? How do I live in the present? Always more questions, no answers.
In 2008, with all those questions swirling in my head, and at the end of yet another endless to-do list day… I simply asked, “Grace me with another way, mine is not working!” I received two words, “BE MEANINGFUL.” Not knowing what else to do with those two words, I simply started to apply them to my everyday to-do list. I explored a new daily practice of asking, “How can I make this to-do be meaningful?”
This daily practice lead me on a beautiful journey of awakening helping me become present and connect within to what I truly wanted to experience, connect to what mattered most. Each to-do became an expression of my heart, an experience of love, peace and joy! I was no longer stuck yearning for a life I loved. I was consciously creating a life I loved each day… one meaningful to-do at a time.
Those two words helped me discover the limiting beliefs and conditioned patterns of thinking that I unconsciously adopted from the world, my parents, and childhood experiences that no longer served me, and that were stealing my joy. Those two words help free YOU to BE YOU by having all you do BE MEANINGFUL.
All of what you will find here and all of what I offer you is to guide and support YOU on your own kind of Be Meaningful Journey to awaken to who YOU truly are and to create a life YOU love.
Visit often… May it feel like coming “home” each time you visit, may your soul be nourished here and may you leave feeling refreshed and renewed to continue your journey to get to know YOU and to create a life YOU love.
