The option to create the life of our dreams is always available to us.
The problem is - we're human.
Our doubts, our fears, our beliefs - about who we are, what we get to have, what we're capable of, and what we deserve - stop us. They keep us stuck.
We forget that we have the power to decide how we want to experience our lives. Instead, we react to our days in autopilot - taking steps forward, but never really moving forward. Until suddenly, we find ourselves at a certain age or at a certain time in our lives and wonder how the hell we got here.
At least, this is what happened to me.
In my late twenties, I had a "good" job, a toxic but stable (oxymoron?) relationship, great friendships and family, and I remember wondering if this is all there was to life. I felt lost, empty, sad - guilty for not feeling grateful - completely unfulfilled and had no idea what to do about it. I heard people talk about following your gut and listening to your intuition, but I had no idea what that meant or felt like, outside of a vague understanding.
I was completely disconnected from myself, and I had no f****** clue what I wanted out of life. Honestly, I'd never thought about it. I'd followed the trajectory that everyone else was on. You know the drill - go to a good college, get a good job, find a boyfriend who eventually becomes a husband, have children, drink Chardonnay for the rest of your life.
And then I made a decision that changed my life forever - I moved to California.
Spiritual author and speaker Gabby Bernstein writes in her book The Universe Has Your Back, "The universe will keep putting the same obstacles in front of you until you're finally willing to make a change." Well let me tell you, five years of that toxic relationship and a year spent with a manipulative, emotionally abusive bully of a boss put me right at my breaking point, and I finally asked myself, "What do I really want? Because I sure as hell cannot keep living this way".
This is why I became a coach.
Women are SO powerful, and yet, we accept so much less than we deserve. I know I did. And I'm not okay with letting that continue. My purpose in this life is to help women realize and unlock all that's inside of them - so that they get to decide what they expect and what they will accept. I can't tell you how much joy I receive when I get to witness transformation happening in real time. It's magical, and it's possible for anyone.
If I hadn't listened to the little voice in my head that told me that moving to California was what I needed to do, I don't know where I would be today. Ever since I took that chance and began listening to that voice, it's become my superpower. In fact, I created my 3-month and 6-month coaching programs with in depth training on how to tune into your intuition, separate it from the voice of fear or logic, and trust it in all your decisions. Because when you can tap into the truth of who you are, you create the friendships, the love, the job, the money, the health and the LIFE that is completely 100% perfect for you.
