• I feel asleep at the wheel...

    207 views 1 year ago
    Several years ago, I fell asleep at the wheel and had a wreck on the interstate. But falling asleep at the wheel was just an outward indication that my life was in shambles. My secrets were eating me alive, my emotions were out of control, I had just lost my dream job, and I desperately needed a nap.

    As I stood on the side of the road, I called my wife, who started packing her bags.

    The details of our stories likely differ, but plenty of people have fallen asleep at the wheel, as their lives spin out of control. The single mother, drowning beneath the chaos of parenting, finding a job, and just trying to hold it all together. The college student who is suffocating after coming out to his family and founding them anything but supportive. The military vet who wakes up night after night, breathless from the panic; so far, his only cure has been found at the bottom of a bottle.

    Things are much better these days, but I know what it’s like to feel completely overwhelmed by life. So whatever your reason for visiting my site - the blog, podcast, my books, or life coaching - know that you're safe here because I’ve been there. No matter who you are, where you're from, or what lies and labels you've accepted in the past, you are not alone any longer.

    I am Steve Austin. As you check out my site, my goal is to encourage you to do things like: silence your inner critic, cultivate a lifestyle of self-care, and recover from whatever has wounded you. Fear, shame, and guilt have permeated our culture for far too long. It's time to be embraced by Divine love, exactly as you are.

    Whether you’re looking for a coach you can trust or a lifeline because your soul has been wounded, you’re safe here.

    Welcome home.
