"for most of my life I lived in a constant state of disempowerment and fear. I was overweight, unhappy, and felt helpless to change it."
I am so happy you are here, like ecstatic. Whether it’s a spiritual connection, making more money, becoming an entrepreneur, understanding your life's purpose, or feeling comfortable and confident in our own skin, most of us are searching for something.
Searching is something I know a lot about. I have spent most of my life searching for something to fill the void I had inside.
Whether it is fear of failure, rejection, judgement, or shame I want to give you the tools to break down the blocks that are holding you back so you can find what it is you are searching for. Does that sound good to you?
The reason I am so passionate about empowering others is because most of my life I lived in a constant state of disempowerment and fear. I was overweight, unhappy, had horrible anxiety (especially social), had no idea why I was put on this earth and, worst of all, I had no idea how to change any of it.
I am happy to say that with lots of dedication and grace I was able to completely turn my life around. I now live a life I truly love!
Here's the cool thing, because of all this, I am now able help others, just like you, move past what is holding them back from greatness (only you can do it MUCH faster than I did!)
Let me share my story.
For as long as I can remember I felt "different" than everyone else (can you relate?), however, it was at the age of thirteen my life was turned upside down when my father was killed in a military training accident. As a family, we were completely ill-equipped to deal with the emotion of losing him so suddenly and tragically. This is when a big hole in my heart opened up that I didn't know how to fix. The pain I felt caused me to turn on myself. I thought, "If I feel so much pain, something must to be wrong with me." This is where the viscious "I am not good enough" cycle began.
I truly believed I was ugly, fat, stupid, and unworthy of love. At sixteen I dropped out of high school and turned to alcohol, drugs and unhealthy relationships to numb the pain, however, as I grew older, my drug of choice became food.
From the ages of about nineteen to twenty-four I struggled with binging, purging, followed by more binging, starving myself, followed by more binging, while also trying every diet and weight loss pill under the sun and obsessively over exercising.
At this time I also suffered from horrible anxiety attacks and extremely low self-esteem. My weight ballooned to 200+ pounds (not sure exactly how much because I avoided the scale like the plague!) This was a very dark time in my life.
Through my obsessive compulsive search for the magic weight loss bullet I discovered I had a true passion and interest in the sciences of nutrition, fitness, and health. After receiving my high school equivalency (GED) I signed up for classes studying exercise physiology at the University of South Florida. In 2006, after graduating with a 4.0 GPA I went on to pursue my master’s degree in Applied Exercise Physiology at the University of Central Florida.
I had found my passion and this gave me a glimmer of hope that there was something better for me out there. It also gave me the knowledge and skills I need to take back (some of) the control of my exercise and eating habits. This allowed me to lose about 30 pounds but I was far from cured. I still exercised obsessively, overate and suffered from severe anxiety and low-self-esteem.
Finally, A shift occurred
Then one day fateful day, scouring the internet for something to help me overcome my anxiety and depressing for good I discovered mindfulness, gratitude, meditation and most importantly MINDSET techniques. I realized that I had been living my life worrying about the future and regretting past so I was never able to receive the gifts of the present moment.
THIS was a huge turning point for me. These simple strategies transformed the way I ate, slept, woke up, worked out and lived. Shortly after this discovery I lost another 30 pounds and became a fitness model for workout manuals and healthy lifestyle books.
I should have been happy... but i wasn't
So here I was a well-educated, attractive girl with a “perfect” body, and a great job researching and writing for high level fitness, nutrition, and health personalities. This was the life I had always dreamed of! I should have been happy but I wasn’t. The truth is I was miserable, self-conscious, afraid and had no idea what I was put on this earth to do. I carried on this way for many years.
About 5 years ago I got sick and tired of being sick and tired and began to really contemplate what I was put on this earth to do. Through dedicating myself to a daily spiritual practice of meditation, prayer, mindfulness, gratitude, and yoga I discovered that my true passion was to help others become their best self and to beat the negative inner bully that lives in their mind, just like I did.
I ran with this new found inspiration and wrote a book, started a blog, and recorded videos but once again the FEAR crept up and held me back from greatness. I didn’t feel worthy so I gave it all up got lazy, gained weight and hid behind my computer as a fitness and nutrition ghost writer and researcher (you can't get anymore hidden than a ghost writer!)
On September 9th, 2015 I had the second big heartbreak in my life when my wonderful, beautiful, vibrant mother passed away suddenly and unexpectedly after a 4 year battle with ovarian cancer. Losing her completely sucked the wind out of my sails. I did the only thing I knew how to do, meditate, pray, show gratitude, and live in the present moment to help ease the pain.
After a few months of a daily spiritual practice I had an ah-ha moment. I had been playing small for so long because I thought I wasn’t good enough. I was so afraid of judgement that I gave up my passion. How crazy is that!
I decided right then and there to stop hiding. I was put on this earth to help others and that is what I intend to do!
The funny thing is, as soon as I made this decision and got really really clear on what I wanted to manifest in my life I met Michelle Ruiz and within a few short months we created The Goddess Network a high vibe network for heart-centered women! It truly is incredible what can happen when you get out of your own way!
