There have been times in my life when I didn’t feel great about myself, my life or my career; times I felt fat, times I felt stupid and times I felt I had nothing of importance to say because I was afraid.
I was afraid to say no, because I couldn’t imagine not doing what was asked of me. I didn’t want people to be mad or disappointed.
I was afraid to take risks in my life and career because I wanted everything to be perfect.
I was afraid to be my true self and ask for what I wanted in my relationships because I thought the other person would leave.
How can you enjoy life when you are afraid of being yourself and living for approval of others? I learned you can’t!
That’s when I began exploring and reading everything from confidence to shame to spirituality to self-love to women’s history, etc. I attended seminars, lectures, webinars & telesummits. I kept what I liked, tested to see what worked and started applying it regularly to my life.
Slowly, surely I began rebuilding my confidence. I started:
- speaking up in meetings instead of dissecting my thoughts to make sure they were perfect
- saying no to things that no longer fit my life, and opening so much more time for me to do what I want
- weeding out people from my life who were not compatible with me and brought nothing but drama
Since then, I am genuinely happier than I have ever been.
Now, I am on a mission to teach women how to love themselves as they are and rebuild their confidence so they create the relationship, career and life they really want.
I know what it feels like to allow your weight to get in the way of living your life.
I know what it feels like to compare yourself to others.
I know what it feels like when you are overwhelmed and overworked and feel no one understands how hard it is to be you.
You don’t have to continue to live your life this way. and I can show you how. Stick around awhile.
