I am an internationally certified life coach, astrologer, writer and speaker and I am creating a movement. A movement of people who love themselves for exactly who they are…woah!
But what does that even mean? What if you aren’t even sure you know who you are?
I get it girl, I was there too. And quite frankly, some days I still am.
Five years ago, I was a young adult (I’m still young.. but let me paint a picture for you here…) out of college and graduate school for a couple of years, happy to have the days of homework and exams behind me. I thought I had it all figured out.. But I was far from “happy”.
Every day consisted of an internal battle of whether or not I would actually make it through the day (dramatic I know, but this is my about me page so I have to show you who I really am). I was in a job that I found unfulfilling, in a relationship that felt like something major was missing and I felt no sense of purpose whatsoever. The worst part was, I had no idea how to fix it without letting someone down!
After finally owning up to the fact that I was incredibly unhappy, I knew something needed to change, but I wasn’t quite ready to do anything major.
My countless hours spent in front of the TV turned into hours spent reading every self help book I could find. There is so much incredible information out there… but actually applying what your learning isn't always an easy thing to do.
While scrolling facebook one day, (deep down I always knew facebook was the answer to all my problems) I came across an article on astrology that took the study way beyond the horoscope I was familiar reading in magazines. The article focused on the importance of learning about your birth chart or as they were calling it, your “soul map”, and that this chart could provide guidance on your life when you were feeling disconnected from yourself and who you came into this life to be.
I know what you are thinking, and yes, life really does come with an instruction manual. The next day, I was in the bookstore with a new book in hand… and haven’t stopped learning about it since.
What I thought would be an opportunity to learn more about my life’s purpose became a study of not only learning that, but appreciating all of the stars, or should I say planets, that had to align to make me exactly who I am today. My bubbly personality? It’s in there… All my insecurities and need for control? In there too! What about the fact that I have to do work that makes me feel useful? I kid you not… IN. THERE. TOO! I could keep going on, but I think you get the idea.
When we are young, it is so easy for us to be ourselves… to listen to our hearts and be guided by what feels right. As we get older, the influences around us change. We start to feel bad or guilty if there is something about us that others deem negative or if there are changes we want to make to our life that they don’t agree on, so we hide it and try to pretend like everything's okay.
I promise you the happiest you will ever be is when you decide that it’s okay to become who you are.
I love you enough to not let you be who other people think you should be, but for you to love exactly who you are and create a life that is a reflection of just that. Even if it takes some learning….And if you forget just who that is, or maybe you wish you were different, let me show you that the stars had something else in mind.
