I have a shameful secret
Yep, you read that right….I have a shameful secret.
I am a Certified Life Coach, etc. AND I struggle too.
I’ve been working on overcoming my struggles for my whole life.
And, because of those struggles, I have become resilient, determined and dedicated to helping others overcome their struggles too.
My life isn’t “perfect” by any definition…or according to what Facebook or Instagram, TV or society says.
I didn’t have a loving, supportive childhood. I was physically and emotionally abused.
However, NOW, I can celebrate that I am a former perfectionist, binge eater and orthorexic.
I am thankful for my struggles as they helped me become the woman I am today.
The most awesome part is that I am no longer ashamed of myself.
Once, I had a co-worker say to me, “So if you’re a Life Coach, aren’t you supposed to have your shit together?”
I burst out laughing and told her, “No, being a Life Coach doesn’t mean I’ve reached an enlightened state of being floating around perfectly perfect.”
Her eyes opened wide, and then I said, “I am a guide, a trusted advisor and helper to those who are ready to put in the time, effort and money to stop struggling.”
Why am I telling you this? …just because I have certain qualifications and letters after my name, that does not mean I’ve got it all figured out.
Nor am I unaffected by life’s ups and downs and I most certainly experience the gamut of human emotions.
I am real, I hurt, I cry and scream, and I am vulnerable too!
The difference is: now I embrace it!!
Once I realized that my secrets were affecting my joy, happiness, health and peace, I did something about it. I got help
Now, this is where you come in ….
If you feel that any of the following struggles, thoughts, or self-talk sound like you, I would love to offer you a deeply personal and powerful coaching experience.
(See the the link below to schedule a time.)
Binge eat to numb out, feel better, release stress or shut off my feelings
Overwork, over-shop, over-spend, overeat, over-commit, over-do things
I’m my own worst critic, mean to myself or put myself down
Lack confidence in myself and I am uncomfortable with the way that I feel
I was abused/traumatized as a child
Self-abusive behaviors are part of my struggles because that’s what I saw at home
Grew up too fast
Feel like I missed out on my childhood
Think too much, worried or stuck when it comes to making decisions
Always looking into the future to the next thing to make me happy ( you may say, “I’ll be happy when I….)
I neglect my self-care needs, put myself last or feel guilty doing what feels good for me
I do not trust how I feel or what my intuition is really saying to me because it’s scary and I will have to make changes in my life.
Take some deep cleansing breaths if any of those statements triggered emotions in you xo
They were all very real statements for me for most of my life so I can feel how icky and painful they can be.
I also want you to know that you are NOT alone, bad, broken, or wrong for having these thoughts and feelings.
You are human, you are unique and your story matters.
It would be my honor and pleasure love to listen to your story and support you in your life.
Looking forward to serving you on a deep coaching call.
With your health and happiness in mind,
