What if you...
... woke up ready to take on the world every morning?
... felt, at the end of the day, like everything you did that day was worthwhile?
... had clarity of purpose and felt sure about how you spend your time?
... lost the feeling of personal frustration and felt like you were moving forward in your life?
This is entirely possible!
Together, we can transform your feelings of being stuck and frustrated into feelings of satisfaction and fulfillment by expressing your authentic, bad-ass, empowered self.
How do I know?
Because I've been stuck, gotten un-stuck and have helped others achieve their dreams and feelings of fulfillment too.
After a series of really bad luck (watch my TEDx talk to hear the story), I was faced with having to reinvent myself. I've been up and down on that journey, have subsequently been diagnosed with chronic illness, and have found myself with no job twice. Any of these low points could have been the end. Instead, I dig deep into what my inner, most authentic self needs, and I usually find the answer.
My most important solution came in the form of solo kayaking the Mississippi River from source to sea, documenting plastic waste and water quality along the way. It was hard work the whole time, but every day I went to sleep well satisfied and sure that I was doing the right thing.
Self-assuredness and satisfaction is all too rare in modern life. Honing the courage and skills needed to listen and express my authentic self in order to feel this deeply fullfilling sensation has been due in part to self-reflection, but I have benefited from having caring and thoughtful people in my life, as well. My ultimate joy now, is helping you discover and express your courageous awesome self, too--and I promise you don't have to paddle a whole river to get there!
While happiness is a fleeting emotion, satisfaction can endure, even in the difficult parts of life. It tends to yield more happiness, but even in the doldrums of life, it provides stability, strength, and calm.
