I spent a big chunk of my life following other people’s desires and supporting their dreams. My wishes and wants were placed on the back burner. Why? Because it was easier to “follow” than to “lead”. And because, deep down, I didn’t feel I was worth it.
But I remained hungry for more. Connection. Purpose. Freedom. And as I moved from one juggling act to the next, I felt depleted and discouraged. Women are constantly pressured to fill numerous roles at once, and the pressure eventually gives way to self-neglect. Self-love, self-care and self-compassion were miles away.
I came to a point in my life when everything fell apart. Three children later and here I was, completely alone. I had made a disastrous situation out of my marriage and certainly was no longer the parent I wanted to be. The ultimate question that I was left with was who was I if I was no longer all this?
But that’s not the end of my story.
Through practices of Self Care and cultivation of Connection, I thrived. These practices led me down a path of Self Actualization- a powerful force to create a happy and purposeful life.
What I know is that in times of darkness, we all share the fear of being vulnerable and a lack of connectedness.
Whether I’m facilitating Circles of Connection, speaking to a group, or coaching with you 1:1 on Self Care practices, I’m going to be guiding you to…
- Know yourself, your core, and your why
- See adversity as an ally that helps us evolve
- Live a more vital life full of awe and delight
- Practice self-love, self-care and self-compassion – and to connect with others, embrace them
When we’re together, we can grow into our truth and find freedom in being ourselves.
By practicing play and compassion within a Circle of Connection and engaging in Self Care practices, we can unleash everything that’s holding us back.
