It’s amazing what can grow from unfortunate circumstances. Not accepting my circumstances and making the decision to push forward helped me achieve a new definition of success and fulfillment in my personal and professional life. Through all of the health issues, heartache, and work challenges I realized that I had to find a new way.
To paraphrase Einstein, you can’t solve the problem with the same thinking that created it. If I wanted to change my life, I had to change my thinking, my beliefs about the future, and re-evaluate my entire value system. I decided to take a long, hard look at who I was and who I wanted to become. I wanted to see if I could turn my breakdown into a breakthrough. So I started to pay attention.
In order for this to work, I needed to understand myself: who I am and what makes me tick. I started to ask myself some vital questions. How was I showing up in my relationships? Was I letting the hurts and disappointments of the past shape my future? How could I change my “programming” to become more than I ever was? And, perhaps most important, what I come here to do and what was my true purpose in life?
Looking back, I could see the claw marks left on the walls where I didn’t want to let go. I discovered and deleted negative thought patterns, identified belief systems that no longer served me, and I brought myself back to health. Changing my thoughts, beliefs, and environment transformed my life beyond what I would have ever thought possible.
The principles I now teach helped me change my life and, indirectly, the lives of the people that I love and care for the most. Through the turbulent but beautiful journey of self-discovery, I learned to trust life. I learned to embrace my mistakes and not let my regrets hold me back. I visited the darkest corners of my shadow and learned to open up to the world of infinite possibilities. I learned to forgive myself and others. And above all, I learned to be grateful.
Stagnation is no longer an option for me. I know now, that as long as I’m willing to put in the work, I can turn my life around at any time.
Now life feels incredibly fun, safe, and extremely rewarding! Life happens and flows with ease. When I trust life, the right people, things, and circumstances always seem to arrive at the right time and in the right place. Never before have I felt so close to myself, my daughter, my family, and my friends. Never before have I felt so alive and deeply fulfilled. I have once again rediscovered my passion for life. Through this journey I have fallen in love with the life I’m living and I’ve found my passion in helping others create a life they love.
