Through college I spent my time working with inner city girls, mentoring women at a pregnancy care facility, and loving on women through multiple local organizations. During these years I dreamed of being a sex therapist. Although noble (and sexy), that route seemed to fall short of what I dreamt for my own life and for what I desired to communicate to women about their future and identity.
Through a self-branding course in college, I fell in love with the idea of coaching and in my gut I knew it was my path. I launched a blog, started reading about living a whole life, discovered holistic food habits and delved deeper into my spiritual journey. I married my best friend in this season and although life was good and I knew where I wanted to go, I lacked the confidence and self awareness to get me there. In many ways, I did not know myself, and like many women who don't have a grounded sense of self identity, I become the people I admired instead of being fully me.
You see, I come from a family where for generations, women were not told they could achieve great things. Many were abused, and most never learned their value until much later in life. Mental illness was and is a real issue for the women in my family. The thought patterns and habits of these situations found their way into my life. I was SO insecure. I did not believe I was worthy of good things. My mind was toxic, full of ideals and who other people told me I should be. I found myself to be the biggest hindrance to living the life I wanted, until I realized I could be the change.
It wasn't overnight, it wasn't always easy, and I surely haven't arrived. But with help of coaches and counselors, support from my husband and friends, getting real about who I am, and developing healthy thinking, I have been able to overcome unhealthy patterns. I have created new friendships with powerful women. I am finally living the life I once thought was only a dream, and shoot, I finally feel worthy of it.
It all came down to this: You're the one you've been looking for.
