Today marks the beginning of November – the month of Thanksgiving.
And I have a LOT to be grateful for!
In another month, it will be 5 years since I went into a nervous breakdown that lasted for 6 months. It was the darkest, most terrifying time of my life.
When I was going through it, I didn’t know if I’d ever come out of it. So when I finally did, I felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude that, to this day, I can’t put into words.
All I wanted to do after that was help other women from ending up where I did. All I wanted, was to do everything I could to make sure no other woman had to go through what I went through.
I just didn’t know how.
And so for the last 5 years, I’ve dedicated my life to answering that question. In that time, I’ve done a lot of learning, studying, reading, and soul searching and I’ve completely transformed my own life.
I also became a Certified Life Coach through what I consider to be the gold standard of life coaching training programs: Dr. Martha Beck’s Wayfinder program.
I fell in love with the work, the transformative tools, and the profound impact they could have on changing someone’s life, including my own.
Through it all, my biggest discovery has been this:
It’s not the big things that break us. We can handle the big stuff when we have a solid foundation. What breaks us, is years and decades of the small stuff.
And that “small stuff” is usually made up of all the ways we’ve sold ourselves out. All the times we’ve sold out our highest potential and happiest life for something that felt safe and comfortable…
…something that allowed us to avoid risk and potential failure, but also kept us from our most intrinsic aspirations and biggest dreams.
It chips away at our soul.
It breaks down our inner world because we’re not built for mediocrity. Our soul is built to be alive and fulfilled!
And the worst part is, we don’t even know it’s happening because most of the decisions aren’t even at the conscious level.
I believe it’s how we end up in a place where our life feels lifeless. I believe it’s how we end up in mid-life not even knowing who we are anymore.
I believe it’s why we set our prices too low or don’t get paid what we’re worth … how we end up in humdrum careers…staying in the wrong relationship…living somewhere that doesn’t feel like home…how we end up anywhere else other than the place our soul longs to be.
And I believe it’s what led to my nervous breakdown.
It’s why I refuse to settle for mediocrity in my own life anymore.
And it’s why I’m now on a mission to help other women recognize the pattern…reclaim their worth…focus on their dreams…and walk the courageous path toward their highest potential and happiest life!
