Human physiology and psychology has always been a source of fascination for me! I started reading personal growth books at the age 15 so that I could better understand the world that I was growing into.
It took me 20 years of experiencing anxiety, uncontrolled stress, low self-esteem, abdominal pains, sugar cravings, erratic energy and moods swings before I discovered the powerful intelligence seated between our rational brain (up top) and our emotional brain (our belly).
What a powerful discovery when I finally understood that we are much more than what we eat! We are a product of what we digest and assimilate from our nutrients, our life events, our relationships and all the information that we choose to consume.
Something hit me one day while I was swimming in a negative thinking soup and I wanted to go fly my hang glider. Just before launching, I had to back off because of my lack of energy, focus, motivation and frankly my lack of courage... I knew it wasn't safe to fly because I felt I wasn't at my best!
Deep inside I knew that this anxiety and confusion wasn't how I wanted to fly and live my life! Where was my adventurous, curious and lively spirit?
I was also feeling called to something greater and understood at that moment that I needed to launch into my BEST self if I was to help other people do the same!
Living into my BEST self
I learned many things in my coaching program that I had never learned through my Master's degree as a Nurse Practitioner
regarding optimal nutrition and stress management.
After many years of self-development, I have reclaimed my personal power and life's direction in alignment with my higher dreams and purpose. I now practice hang gliding with courage, enjoy a stable daily energy, a sense of calm within and great mental clarity. I have sustained motivation to complete my meaningful projects and experience far less abdominal pain!
Whether the decision concerns WHAT to eat, HOW I eat, my PERCEPTION of events or the PEOPLE that I choose to surround myself with, I am much more at peace with myself because I make conscious choices that I know will serve my body, spirit and purpose.
The best part of this
I thrive in knowing that I make a difference in the world by contributing my unique gifts and talents while helping others do the same.
