TIDBITS ON MY STORY
There's always more to someone than what meets the eye
It was a Thursday. And just like clockwork, I was driving home from work, and I could barely keep my head up and my eyes on the road.
My head was pounding.
I was exhausted.
I started my day with an energy tank about 17% full.
I ended my 10 hour day by coasting on fumes.
And, oooh, I held myself together all day long so others couldn't see the pain I was experiencing.
I finally arrived home, said a meek hello to my other half, gave my dog a couple half -hearted pats on the head.
I took some Tylenol. Went to the bedroom. And I fell into bed.
And all I could think was “is this what life is going to be like forever?”
That’s a portion of my story that not a lot of people know. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
It’s easy to appear healthy on the outside and on social media... and to want others to think we have our stuff together…
But I learned all too well that hiding my anxiety, my growing health concerns, and hiding who I truly was as a person didn’t help me, it didn’t help the clients I served, and it didn’t help my relationship and friendships.
I had to take a good hard look in the mirror and figure out what it was that was keeping me stuck and what it was that I needed to let go of in order to be ME and live MY best life.
Because our own health & well-being affects those we love and everyone around us.
My problem was, I couldn’t see my own blind spots. But when I arrived at my point of no return, I *finally* waved my white flag. I surrendered.
And I *finally* asked to receive support that held me accountable to ME. In that process, I gained strength and confidence. I started sleeping better, I had more energy, and I simply started having fun again.
I made one simple leap of faith that I was scared shitless to take for so long. And then I made another simple leap of faith...and then another...
And I made those leaps because I realized that it’s way too easy to think our security comes in the form of bank accounts, work benefits, degrees, workout routines, and to-do lists. To be fair, I have degrees and initials that I'm grateful for and I, too, get a real dopamine hit when I cross things off my to-do list. But really, true health and security come from within ourselves and from our decisions that we choose to make.
And finding our inner health & inner wealth is not done in isolation.
This is why I work alongside moms feeling stuck with low energy and constant worry to find their stuck points, tap into their own intuitive health plan, and to finally stay the course (and, yes, through the ebbs and through the flows because we know there is light and there is darkness).
You deserve to live your life with more energy and to raise your kiddos with more strength and more peace of mind. Because when that happens, we build better communities.
And you don’t have to choose to do it alone. I would be happy to cheer you on, call your bluff, and help you squash your fears and anxieties along the way.
If you or a mom friend you know is struggling, suffering in silence, or is just plain 'ol stuck, sign up for a discovery call. This way we can begin the process...we can discover where it is you wanna go, what's getting in your way, and a tangible path to get you where you want to be.
