Why Trust Me?
I'm In This With You
Real Talk. Some days I teeter between Depleted and Whole. It is a fact that I am a Fatherless Daughter, and for most of my life I let that define me. There was a time when I fully existed in Depleted. I am so very grateful that I have been able to pull myself out of a place I thought I was cemented to. I have begun to reacquaint myself with my true being, and it feels good. But I will admit, there are days when I forget or don’t want to show up fully. Luckily, I’ve learned how to not stay stuck, and you can too. Trust me, even though I’m a few steps ahead of you, I’m still right here with you.
Success In Shifting Mindset
Our minds are powerful. Far more powerful than most imagine. When I decided to finallyget serious about getting in shape after starting and stopping the Body—for—Life Challenge multiple times prior, I had to dig deep in order to see the entire 12 weeks through and create a different reality. Just two years after completing and winning that challenge in the couples category, I had to dig even deeper to heal myself, naturally, of a scary diagnosis through the power of prayer, affirmations/mental fortitude, meditation (also mental fortitude), herbs and food.
Writing. When all else fails, it’s the one thing I know for sure I do well. In elementary school when teachers assigned a three-page paper, I easily turned in 10. Yea, I was thatgirl. In the 8th grade I received an Honorable Mention in an essay contest for the Berkeley Motion Picture and Television Council. I wrote a novel and found an agent who believed in me and shopped my book with New York publishers. When the book didn’t get picked up, I went back to school to hone my craft and I now hold a Masters in Creative Writing. I operated an online copywriting business. My writing has appeared in local magazines, online, and I contributed a chapter in Champions Body—for—Life.
