My Story and How I Got Here
Allow me to introduce myself further. I am not a counselor, psychologist or any of those awesome medical professionals, but I do know a few things. Who I am now and who I once was are same same but different. Meaning, I’m the same person at heart. I still love a good adventure, country tunes and a cold glass of rose, but what’s drastically changed is I’m a little older and a little wiser. Just kidding. No, but really, what’s changed is my perspective on life and how I see things, my thinking about things has changed.
10 years ago this wasn’t the case. I got up the courage to follow my dreams and travel the world, but with every train, plane and bus ride I set foot on so did my internal battles. The more days that passed, the worse they got. Without me fully realizing it, I became overwhelmed with anxiety, food struggles, depression and insecurities of all kinds. You name it, I felt it.
Fast forward 3 years later…
I finally landed back on Canadian soil, me, my struggles and a whole lot of thoughts. The plan was to run down to Mexico and live under a palm tree, but something inside of me encouraged me to stay. Something inside of me said,
“it’s time to stop running from this,
it’s not going to be easy, but you can do it.”
I spent the next few years focusing on getting better, spending less time in my head and more time in my heart. Through the recovery process I made a pact with myself to one day share what I had learned with others.
I packed up all my things and moved to a beautiful, quiet place. I bought, owned and operated a women’s gym where I coached hundreds of women for a number of years on building healthy habits and healthy relationships with themselves.
I also continued to build a healthy relationship with myself in order to build a healthy relationship with the love of my life. By then I was over my behavioral battles, but not necessarily the thinking patterns that were underneath them. The fears, insecurities, and myriad of residual thoughts and emotions that initially lead to them. I spent another few years relearning how to be Me again and seeing my way out of these patterns.
Next, I closed my business as a stepping stone to help me get where I am today… A healthy, happy, relaxed Mumma to a beautiful baby girl and my little fur-man Romeow which brings me to my next few points:
- I am still the same person at heart, but with a much bigger wealth of knowledge on how the mind works and how our experience of life is created through our thinking. This is what I do now. I teach others who are struggling or hurting in some way to see their own way out of their problems through this thing called Coaching.
- I can honestly say I’m human, from time to time I have ups and downs, but I have never been happier, more content or more at peace with what this beautiful life has to offer. This is who I am now, and this is what I want for you. I’d love to share with you what I know.
