I was sad. I wasn’t depressed, I wasn’t angry (well maybe a little), I was sad.
And sadness, for me, looked like not being present in my life, not feeling enthusiastic, not paying attention.
I just did what I did with a smile on my face. I would walk into situations, lift my chest, and put a smile on my face because that looked like confidence but I struggled.
My mind would always take me somewhere else. That somewhere else was always trying to please another. I liked myself but it didn’t stop me from conforming to what I thought others would like. I felt different but wanted to fit in.
I hoped for a different future. I secretly wanted a thriving business, a beautiful home, to travel the world, to wear beautiful sexy clothes but I was afraid to share that with others because I was afraid of what others would think of me.
I desired support in my life, support from others to celebrate the truth of who I was and what I wanted.
It wasn’t until I discovered yoga in 1998 that things really began to change, but slowly. I began to wake up to my life. I began to remember things, actually enjoy small moments. Again it was slow. I started to share myself and my gifts. I began to accept myself fully and openly.
I never had an aha moment, or a one day I woke up and it was all different. It changed slowly.
In 2006 I discovered the work of Eckhart Tolle and spent many years embodying his practices. I began meditating anywhere and everywhere and really embodying presence. I realized that acceptance was the key for me to really expand and grow and transform my life into what I knew I truly desired.
From the work of acceptance I have discovered a whole new world. One that is full of love and support and guidance and true happiness. I have a thriving relationship, the business I once desired, I live in the home I dreamt about for years, and I travel the world with my beautiful family. I live a truly remarkable life!
My work in the world is to teach the importance of true acceptance and divine love of self and of others. To show that true happiness and thriving in your business and life comes first from acceptance of what already is. And that divine love is what we are really here to experience.
You are courageous and brave. You are strong and powerful. You are beautiful and wise. You are a woman and you are meant to live a really remarkable life.
I’m here to support you while being me. To show you your uniqueness and specialness while living mine. To heal you while healing myself.
PS. The human things
I love soft clothes, flowy clothes, I love really nice fabric. And I love jeans.
I love math and problem solving. It makes me buzz.
Yoga is my practice but you probably already knew that.
My right hamstring is tighter than my left, my left hip is tighter than my right, my right quadricep is stronger than my left…I could go on but I don’t want to bore you.
I love anything spiritual, asking why we are here is probably my favorite thing to think about. Maybe because it is impossible to really know.
I am super committed, which means I almost always do what I say I am going to do.
I don’t have a lot of rules in my home and when I try to make them my kids look at me like I am crazy.
I LOVE to sleep, probably more than anything else. When people say, sleep is over-rated, I totally disagree.
My husband is an avid kiteboarder, an amazing skier, and a successful business owner and I admire him for all of that.
I move stuff around in my house all the time, my husband goes crazy trying to find things.
I find the positive in everything. Even in paying taxes.
I study my thoughts all of the time, sometimes it’s too much.
I drink a smoothie or make homemade juice almost every morning.
I am known for making the best pancakes on the planet.
I have a Mechanical Engineering degree and over a 1000 hours of yoga training.
I love to LOVE.
with so much love and appreciation
