You are not defined by your career.
You have it within yourself to feel amazing.
You deserve fruitful, loving relationships.
You were put on this planet to fulfill a purpose, and your purpose will bring abundance in every area of your life.
You are not "successful" if your personal life is a disaster.
If you take the time to pour into yourself first, the result of what you can accomplish in work AND life will thrive.
As a 12 year old, I was told I was different, that I looked like a boy and that no-one would like me. I was taller and more mature than my friends and because of unkind words, I lived in a constant state of unworthiness. I was never good enough.
Acceptance is what I craved, so I went where I could easily find it. I started performing. I found that when I was dancing, singing, or in front of an audience I could take on a story other than my own.
I became a performer in every area of my life, especially in my personal relationships, my relationship with myself and my interactions with family and friends. The constant pretending led me to a deep, dark place in my early twenties. I made personal choices that were unsafe and unhealthy. I began to smoke, I drank excessively and I chose to spend time with people that I knew were not the influencers I needed in my life.
One morning, after a long night of partying I woke up and remember seeing a person in the mirror that I did not recognize. I didn’t like the person I had become, I hated every inch of my body. I was hopeless. I knew I was living a vicious, destructive cycle by destroying my body with alcohol, smoking and toxic relationships. I could feel my life starting to decline…
I was at the end of my rope and I knew something needed to change. I began therapy, and through conversation, I realized that the dark place I was in needed light. I immediately quit drinking and smoking. I said farewell to the toxic relationships and I kept the people in my life that truly loved me for who I was. However, it wasn’t enough. My body was craving more.
One day as I walked out of my therapist’s office, I saw a sign…It read “ Breathe. Yoga Inside”. A simple call to take a yoga class was the moment that changed my life forever. Yoga was the catalyst to MAJOR chance in my life, and it was through my practice that I discovered the tools I needed to change my life for good. For the first time, I wanted to take care of my body, I was falling in love with who I was physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally.
It was that one day leaving my therapist’s office that I surrendered to something bigger than myself. The world became full of life again. Yoga continues to help me find peace and finding a life coach helped me uncover my importance and purpose. It was through the work of both that I discovered I had a story to tell. I knew that the constant performing of my past was a mask I was using to keep myself from loving who I was put on this earth to be.
