My name is Kris Disbrow and I live in Vancouver, WA where I was born in 1973 to a 17 year old single mother. I had a pretty tough childhood due to that primarily cause she was always looking for something from men. Sadly I had 3 stepdads by time I was 9 and the 2nd one was terribly abusive especially to a 3 year old. Luckily my Grandmother let me come over as much I wanted and smother me with love, if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have seen age 12. Even with her in my life I was seriously troubled. Age 13-23 I did so many reckless things its literally a miracle I am alive, let alone successful. I am here to find my bliss, to experience joy and happiness regularly that I have only experienced on the rarest of occasions. Nothing is more important, cause if I am not in that state of being how can I get others to be?
My wife Jenn and I have been together for 19 years (married for 7) and we have a nearly 4 year old awesome little girl named Violet Leigh (named her after my Grandmother). I am a partner in a large construction company that my wife works for while operating a second business from home.
I love to golf, play poker, garden and play with my daughter. I am blessed!
My life is rife with crazy stories, near death experiences, heartache and lots of luck. Its been a wonderfully challenging ride and look at MKMMA as the tool to my 3rd trimester of existence to be even better than everything before it. I have also spent the last year and a half going to counseling 2x month. The combination of the 2 have made very positive changes in my life. The only thing lacking is that passionate exuberance that I started this program last year to find. Obviously there is something missing but I still have not found it. I do not want to spoil anything for anyone but the question “What am I pretending not to know” is weighing on me.
My current occupation is very rewarding financially and because of that I can provide for my wife and daughter without necessarily worry about the same problems that I did growing up. That being said, it does not bring me JOY but I do not think I can make the same income doing other things so I seem to have convinced myself subconsciously that I can sacrifice my happiness in order to make my daughters life richer and have many more opportunities than I ever had growing up.
Because of this course though, I know that is not the truth. I need to take the steps or make the changes within my DMP to really hone in on what it is that will make me happy and blissful cause that is what I am needing most.
