This is my celebratory first blog and I am excited to be embarking on this incredible adventure with you. After thinking about it, talking about it and dreaming about it, I am finally doing it. I have chosen to bare my heart and soul, allowing myself to be vulnerable with my personal journey—fueled by my passion to effect positive change—in hopes of inspiring each of you to follow your heart’s compass in mapping out the life you truly desire and deserve.
I have known for some time, within the deepest depths of my soul that I was destined to be an entrepreneur. I have always felt there had to be something more for me than merely being an employee. After having tried numerous business ideas and ventures in search of that one elusive thing that would truly make my heart and soul smile, I have finally embraced my passion and purpose for effecting positive change within others.
I’ve learned so much over the years as I have been on a focused journey of self-growth and understanding, which has created huge change in all areas of my life. The biggest change occurred two years ago when my long-term relationship of nearly 11 years came to an end. I had a life makeover by way of relationship status, employer and home, all within the first four months of a new year. It marked the beginning of a new experience for me—singlehood.
A shattered heart, tear-stained face, bruised ego, skinned knees and broken promises have all played a role in my life. Self-doubt, low self-esteem, depression, negative self-talk, criticism, perfectionism, loneliness, anger, frustration and resentment have all made guest appearances. Yes, a lot of it sucked, but I wouldn’t trade in any of it as it has brought me to where I am now, which is the happiest I have ever been.
Starting this blog is about helping others uncover their potential and live a life rich with fulfillment, happiness and delicious moments. Through sharing my personal experiences with you, my hope is to help you better navigate life’s twists and turns. My goal is to inspire you to be more of the person you really are—to help you connect with your true self. My wish is for you to live a life full of compassion, forgiveness and self-love.
So ask yourself the following (and even write down your answers): Who are you really, at the most raw, authentic level of your being, and have you fully embraced this person? What is it that you truly desire more of from this life and what are you doing to actively work towards it?
I thank you for joining me on this journey. This is just the beginning of many delicious things I hope to bring to you.
