I have been studying nutrition and holistic health practices for over 7 years now and I still continue to learn. We really never get to know it ALL!
Right now I’m learning specifically about Lyme from a Doctor that had Lyme disease himself. When I was diagnosed with it in August 2017 it really took me by surprise. I had no idea what it was and the complexity to heal / get rid of it.
Before being diagnosed, as a Health Coach, I thought I was doing everything “right” but seeing little results and constant relapses. By trying to do things my way I was ignoring what my body was trying to tell me.
I felt I was on this weird roller coaster ride and many times I asked myself “what the heck is wrong with me?”
I kept gaining weight and feeling like crap no matter how well I thought my nutrition was and doing everything “right”. I felt like a failure so I decided to take a break from Health Coaching and focus on myself.
During that time I tried many different things trying to figure out what worked for me in health, life and business.
Last year was a year of growth, learning experiences, getting to know myself and true purpose in life.
When I 1st graduated as a Health Coach September 2016 I thought I had it all figured out. Never thought life had a whole different plan for me.
It wasn’t until I started following my heart (true self) that things started to fall into place. I finally discovered the real reasons I wasn’t getting well and how to fix it.
You see, when I tried to do life following my ego everything went “wrong”. Although I call those learning/growing experiences. (“I didn’t fail, I grew.”) It didn’t feel good going thru it.
But when I truly started listening to myself, my body, and inner being, it’s like I was always being guided in the right direction, meeting the right people and being in the right place at the right time. Yes, there are curve balls but I now handle them is such a non-stressed grateful sort of way. Never losing my faith and vision.
Now my health is heading in the right direction with significant improvement in the last 5 months, my business plans are focused and clear, my mindset has improved and I just feel like a whole different person.
Before I always felt like I was swimming against the current and like everything always went wrong. Now I just let go of control, allow myself to be guided, set intentions, have faith, and continue to work towards my goals in health and life in a “Flowing” type of way.
I no longer stress on things not going my way and learned to let go of the things that no longer serve me.
Honestly, without coming from a place of ego, I do feel like I have a heart of a warrior!
I’ve heard before that God only gives his toughest battles to his toughest warriors and I really believe that is true!
Many others in my situation would have given up and accept their reality (symptoms/illness) as it is. I say this not to judge anyone but in hopes to inspire, give hope and support to people in similar journeys.
I know now that everything happens for a reason and the reason I’m strong is because it’s my life’s purpose to be so.
I know now that my mission in life is to create awareness and give people the hope they need to start and continue a healing journey to a thriving, energized and symptom free life!
Our journey never ends as we will always keep improving and It’s up to us as how we live our lives.
Full of love, joy and flow…
