It used to be that describing me in three words looked something like this…
Overachiever. Perfectionist. Control Freak.
And I would have said, “Yep, that’s me.” Those are leadership qualities, right? I have high standards. I’m results-driven. Those are the reasons I AM a SUCCESS.
Then one summer I suddenly felt sad. And very very lonely.
Which led to a realization. I was using success and recognition as a substitute for love. What I really wanted underneath that desperate pursuit of acknowledgement and praise was to feel loved. Deep down, I didn’t even love myself. I didn’t think I deserved love. How was I ever going to let myself be loved if I didn’t feel worthy of it?
As painful as that moment was, it was a revelation. I knew I was willing to do ANYTHING to live a deeply connected life, in love with the real authentic me. So I pressed pause on everything non-essential in my life so the universe could guide me through whatever that journey needed to be.
The experience completely changed me. Not that I don’t still love results or want to lead. I no longer need them to feel worthy. I’m worthy no matter what.
Along my journey, I created and collected tools. These are the same tools I share with my clients so THEY can step into an authentic and connected life. That’s what I want for you, my friend. You deserve a life where you can truly love yourself, fully love others, and receive all the love trying to get to you.
Women Committed to Relationships
Relationships are easy. Yes, they require mindfulness and action but that doesn’t make them hard. I’ve done “hard” relationships and it sucked. What I know now is that life is too darn short for that. I also know that the skills to create, strengthen, and deepen emotional connections are available to ANYONE.
If you’re shaking your head in disbelief, I have good news for you. Teaching those skills is what I do. Nothing makes me happier than helping others learn them and improve their own relationships.
Creating loving, supportive communities is a passion of mine. My private (free!) Facebook group is one area where I foster this type of environment. We’re all messy, and that’s okay! We all need somewhere to work on ourselves without fear of judgment. This is one of those places, packed with practical exercises, inspiration, weekly LIVE trainings, and women walking the same path as you.
