At some point in my mid thirties I completely lost myself. Desperately trying to live up to unrealistic demands from the world around me, I checked in less and less with my feelings, my dreams, my purpose and myself. I went through the motions and numbed out my feelings. I was running on empty. I was miserable and completely depleted.
At a very bleak moment, a gentle voice let me know that it was time for a complete overhaul and I could do it – I had to do it. By myself, for myself.
I was present and I recognized the intrinsic beauty and magic in my life. I was, and continue to be, so grateful. Adversities – big and small – would always rear their heads but now I felt empowered to face them. I knew that moving through the weeds and navigating toward joy was always worth the effort. Some of my “worst” experiences were my most profound and altered my life dramatically and yet, incredibly.
I truly believe joy is a choice. We can choose how we are going to show up each day – for ourselves and for the world around us. I know our thoughts are powerful so we have to use them for our best intentions and create the most inspired and empowered life we can imagine. Intentions are simple yet, powerful and transformative.
My mission is to inspire people to live intentionally and on purpose, creating a life that is meaningful and joyful.
