a recovering middle child, people-pleaser & corporate chaos junkie...
Growing up as your typical middle child, I always wanted harmony
and did all I could to keep everyone happy.
I learned quickly to say ‘yes’ to everything asked of me –
even if I didn’t want to. It was how I gained love & approval.
This transferred into my career as a people pleaser & over-achiever.
I spent years working long hours, pulling all nighters to get the job done
and working to meet SO many expectations set on me by ME,
my bosses at any given time, my customers, competition,
team, friends, spouse, parents...what felt like everyone.
I learned that I have a keen sense for connecting dots and
I LOVE simplifying a message & getting people excited about something!
This shifted into my personal life shortly after my mom passed away; the void of my mom wasn’t just the void of missing her presence, something else had cracked open. When I realized, and was ready to admit, that I was living for everyone but me. I quickly started to connect the dots of my past with my present, I wanted to know why I do & think the way I do.
I came to understand that we make choices one of two ways - out of love or out of fear.
And although love is always greater than fear, I was subconsciously choosing fear based action. With the deep desire to live my best life #now, I needed to dig in and make some serious changes to my life. The moment I REALLY understood how to embody a life led by love, from the soul level, my communications, actions and relationships started to shift & evolve. I became more conscious which led to deeper mindfulness which led to being more present every day.
And through various books & methodologies, healers, energy work, time and deep personal awareness, I have created a map back to me. I can acknowledge when I am slipping back into subconscious habit & I have the freedom of choice to use my tools and move through the experience & related emotions...or not. I have inherent gratitude for everything this life has brought me through. A deep knowing that I am fully supported & divinely guided keeps me grounded. And I have learned to slow WAY down, consciously choose myself every day and, in bite size pieces, find a place of joy & connectedness again & again. This isn't always easy but knowing I have the choice to live from love or from fear has been a game changer. I now recognize
that once we begin to awaken, we move into an infinite transformative state of being.
And anything is possible when I continue to let go & surrender to the idea
that infinite possibilities live inside the unconditional love I give myself every day.
Knowing that this is inherently available to everyone..
that life literally kidnaps us away from our pure essence, has brought me to my soul's work
of sharing how to move through the fear and let love lead the way!
