I regularly stop in awe of our capacity for resilience and the amazing power we have to create our lives! The insights I learned during my personal journey have enriched my work and the lives of my students and clients!
I grew up bouncing back and forth between what I should do and what I wanted to do. Always eager to please and measuring my success by what I achieved, I conformed to expectations.
I was always searching for more – a relentless ache.
Throughout my late 20s, after struggling and failing, repeatedly, to create the “perfect” family, my relationship became strained…, it became painfully clear, everything I was doing was not working. Facing the significant losses in my life, my health began to suffer and at age 31, I needed to make a change.
I did the work. I gathered the courage. And I made radical changes in my life.
Almost immediately, my body transformed and literally, the stress (and pounds) melted off me!!
Life softened and became effortless, I felt like I was being lead and gifted with solutions.
With a new sense of self, I knew I wanted to use my life to make a difference and help people create fulfillment in life and work.
I remember one awakened moment: well into my infertility journey, I became an avid yoga and meditation student. One early morning, I was in class and on my yoga mat. Normally wobbly and unstable, I was finally able to hold tree pose! Recognizing this triumph, tears streaming down my face, I felt deeply that my life had changed. I replaced my foot solidly back on the ground and I knew I was no longer able to go backward, the truth had emerged. It sounds strange but it is the accumulation of these awakened moments that your authentic self emerges.
My journey took me to the Dominican Republic to volunteer with children. I arrived to help them and it was them who ended up healing my heart! I felt ALIVE!
I was planning to stay 12 weeks but stayed for 2 years!
I found love, culture, adventure, passion and eventually created a family after I struggled to do so for many years.
