*Vulnerable Story Ahead*
I used to be a mess.
Throughout high school and college, I was depressed, grieving, and suicidal, on top of the usual angst that accompanies learning how to be a person and a woman with strong emotions.
I smoked lots of cigarettes & drank way too much.
I made questionable-at-best decisions.
I was shit at relationships… on so many levels.
My weight yo-yoed, to say the least. I’ve always tended to be on the “thick” side of the spectrum – except for a couple of sickly skinny years thanks to amphetamines & constant studying.
Eventually, I developed anxiety that would keep me up many nights, which developed into full-blown attacks once I started working in mental health care.
That’s when I really knew something needed to change. I knew that I’d never be able to *really* help other people like I wanted to unless I learned how to help myself first.
I’ve been on the way back up ever since.
Maybe you remember those days. If you’ve only met me within the past 5 years, this might be difficult to picture. But it’s true.
I used to struggle a lot. Now I’ve learned a lot, I’m standing tall, and I’m putting words to the wisdom that’s always lived inside of me.
I’m one of those annoyingly happy people that finds the silver lining in every situation. (I’m actually working on doing this LESS right now – especially with the people I love).
Still… I just love taking whatever life throws at me and spinning it into gold.
I love showing other people how to do the same thing, consistently.
It’s been said a million times that money doesn’t buy happiness. And, it’s true.
As a new business owner who’s still paying off student debt, I’m in a more precarious financial situation than I’ve ever been.
I’m also happier and healthier than I’ve ever been.
It has nothing to do with my bank account, with my relationship, my business … or anything outside of myself.
Those things definitely help but *I’m* the only one responsible for tending the fire that’s burning and building inside of me.
I tend it by walking my own talk… By connecting to myself, then finding desires & inspiration to follow.
I’ve built a strong foundation of comfort in my skin… by loving myself and my body entirely. I’m sinking in deeper every day.
Every little oddity and quirk… Every grey hair and roll. It’s all beautiful and fascinating to me.
Don’t get me wrong, things really aren’t ALWAYS easy. I’m building a business from scratch, after diving in head first…
That’s just my style. Jumping in always worked for me in the past. (Read: YOU don’t have to shake your life up like that if you work with me, and I actually don’t recommend it)!
I had no idea what I was getting in to. A lot of hard lessons have been learned. I talk shit to myself sometimes.
And, I know exactly how to pull myself out.
The fact that I’m sane and happy right now, in the midst of some of the most challenging times I’ve ever experienced, is the most honest testimonial I can give to display the impact of the services that I offer.
It hasn’t always been this way.
But, now, I get to explore the secrets of magnetic wellness and wholeness full time – so that I can make a difference for others by teaching it to them, too. I support myself by doing this work. Even when I’m squeezing pennies together, I’m surrounded by abundance, and I’m growing every day.
My passion for psychology, my love for learning, and my desire to help others have always been my saving grace… and now, I’m fortified by the tools I’ve developed along the way. These things combined are incredibly powerful, and that’s what I offer to you.
I help my people reconnect with who they are… I show you how to plug into your driving force so you can fly straighter and swifter into your dreams.
Don’t just take it from me. Over the coming months, I’ll be sharing my favorite client stories with you over on my testimonials page so you can see for yourself. Stay tuned…
And, as always, if you want in, let’s talk. Dropping me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org is the best way to reach me.
Thanks for reading. Have an amazing week. Talk soon.
