I spent most of my life doing what the greater culture taught me to do and promised would bring me happiness. I went to University, received a Master’s, got a good job with lots of benefits; got married and had a baby. I was well on my way to “living the good life” – I followed all the rules, but yet something was still missing. I felt lost, unfulfilled and yearning for more. The statement of “There has got to be more to life than this” played over and over in my mind. Masking and distracting my truth with food and settling with feelings of deep despair and anxiety created a less than ideal way to live. Something had to change.
My son, my greatest teacher, helped me open my eyes I knew that I had to walk my talk and BE me so he could BE himself. I knew (with all my training and experience) that kids do what we do, not necessarily what we say. I wanted him to see me being all I was created for because I wanted him to live this way too. I had to be the example of what was possible. This was very scary for me because I have always followed rules, always kept quiet even when things didn’t feel right or when I disagreed. Somehow I found the courage to challenge this limiting way of living and gradually moved in the direction that felt right (even though it was tremendously difficult at time). I had to demonstrate courage to take the road less traveled so he could too. This is a daily practice that I live by.
We are not meant to do this alone. I believe we are always learning and teaching from each other which is why I created the podcast so we can make these important conversations “everyday conversations”. Shining light on love and what’s possible.
Today, my professional life and my personal life are not separate. What I do is who I am and who I am is what I do. I can’t separate the two because I live everyday with the same beliefs and principles. Living consciously (living your authentic truth) is what will bring a life of joy and happiness. This is what I have come to learn and this is what I have come to teach.
Through my presentations and conversations with other people, I realized that I was not alone. We are all looking to live our unique truth; we all yearn for it. My work is dedicated to making sure you recognize who you are and what you are capable of. Intertwine who you are with what you do and you will live “the good life.” My intention for you is that you recognize your truth and cultivate the courage to live it, one day at a time – one moment at a time.
