Most of us battle the “should’s” in our heads, trying to conform our lives to the fantasies about who we think we “should” be. Yet striving to live a life based on the beliefs of others increases stress, anxiety and depression.
Sometimes it is hard to hear that inner voice that tells us that we are on-track, perfect just the way we are, and that we are not alone.
“When the voice and the vision on the inside become louder than the opinions on the outside, then you have mastered your life”- Dr. John Demartini
When I first heard Dr. Demartini’s quote years ago, I was battling depression and questioning myself as a mother, wife, daughter, and clinician. I was trying to please everyone around me and putting everyone’s needs before mine. I had also been diagnosed with a severe case of adrenal fatigue. I made a decision that “enough was enough.” It was time for me to figure out who I was, not who everyone thought I “should” be. I found direction and I went to work. I took a good honest look in the mirror, delving deeply into my own psyche and I began to deconstruct my “stories.”
The result was almost immediate- my diagnosis was gone within months and in its place was a strong sense of purpose and a clear vision for my life.
Since then I have felt inspired and extremely blessed to live my life.
Whether it is a child or an adult, there is nothing more meaningful to me than to guide someone back to their authentic self. I have a deep belief in people and their capacity for growth. I also believe that everyone deserves to live an authentic inspired life and for this reason, it is my life’s mission to create opportunities through teaching, business creation, writing, consulting, and coaching to help people wake up to the magnificence of their own being.
