I'm an integrative happiness coach and I'm here to help you learn how to live a happier life.
My wish for you is to embrace your inner strength and beauty and create a vision for your life that you're inspired to live.
But first it will (probably) piss you off! It's not always easy to be honest, especially with ourselves. But it is the first step in transformation. As we learn to listen to our Truth, we are able to discern which answers are right for us.
Have you ever heard, "You already have all the answers."? I've said it many times myself. But what I've come to believe is that we DON'T always have the answers. If we did, we wouldn't have problems. What we do have inside, however, is our own unique Truth. And within our Truth, we know the answers when they are presented to us.
We've been taught that happiness is something to be worthy of and an outcome to aspire to. But we don't "deserve" it...or any other emotion. Emotions, including happiness, are an inherent part of being human. Happiness is as a state to tap into and experience, something we're all born with and it's always available to us. But sometimes, we just need to learn to tap into it.
♥I adore animals (especially cats, horses, dolphins, and unicorns)
♥ I'm passionate about writing
♥ I drink WAY too much Starbucks
♥I burst out randomly in song to phrases in conversations
♥I teeter on the edge of cool and dork...oh, who am I kidding?! I most definitely live on the Dork Side
One of the questions I'm asked most often is...
But I think what people really want to know is “WHY?” What was it about my life that led me down this path?
In short, I became a coach because I've always wanted to help people and make a difference in the world.
The CliffsNotes version of my life is that I grew up with an abusive caretaker (not my parents, thank goodness), learned the skill of hating myself, which I did like a champ until I almost died at the age of 36 from a hemorrhagic stroke (plot twist!), and in that dark moment, I had a V-8 moment I wouldn't wish on anyone:
You should never land on your deathbed hating yourself!
All that, coupled with an overdose of regret for a wasted life of self-loathing, lit a fire under my ass to never ever be in that position again. You could say I had the mother of all wake up calls.
It was a painful realization I wasn't fulfilling my purpose or helping the world be a better place because I was too busy hating on me. And that just wasn't acceptable.
Thank God I had the AHA! moment (and a second chance) to catapult me into actually doing something about it. I got a do over and I vowed to learn how to not only love myself, but to find a way to help others do the same.
And THAT is why/how I became a happiness coach!
