My health journey has been anything but easy. My entire life I thought that being overweight was unavoidable; that I would never be able to lose weight and I’d have to come to terms with living in a bigger body.
In July of 2020, I took a gigantic leap of faith and made a huge investment in a business coach. At the time I thought that I couldn’t share my personal struggles with her. This is business coaching not therapy! So when I said I need space to grieve as another miscarriage happened later that fall, she told me that all of me was welcome. And that’s when I realized working with her was going to be deeper than just a list of business hacks and tricks. This was deep, soul work and it is the most beautiful, emotional and healing journey I have ever had.
I lost babies…and with that, my trust in my body and my identity! Who was I if I couldn’t have children? How could I trust a body that failed me so deeply? And in the grief I realized that I knew them. I knew each and every one of them. And even for the short time, their soul was a part of me and our lives were intertwined. Our angels now watch over us and I know God is holding them. Sometimes in my dreams I imagine what they look like; our beautiful babies.
YOU MIGHT BE WONDERING WHY SUCH AN EMOTIONAL DIVE INTO MY GRIEF IS RELEVANT…
Well, it took those souls touching mine for me to see what my purpose was here. It took that grief and heartbreak for me to finally see what I was called here to do. Encourage, support and inspire others through my gifts; photography, coaching, the podcast platform…all of these things I am doing now are because of this awareness. And I thank you for giving me the space to grow and evolve!
I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY BECAUSE IT ALLOWS ME TO SHOW YOU THE INCREDIBLE HUMAN THAT I SEE.
And more than that, I get to walk with you through a session, sometimes a wedding day, and my job is to help you feel your absolute best! Photography will always be a part of me and this business is my heart!
THERE’S SOME EXCITING NEW THINGS FOR THIS BUSINESS THAT I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU TODAY!
I am officially launching the coaching side of my business!
I am currently in the process of becoming a certified NLP Master Practitioner. NLP is the work I talked about earlier in this blog; the reason I have grown so much the past two years.
NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming and is essentially how you can dive into and reframe the subconscious patterns and programs that are no longer serving you. NLP contains a variety of modalities and techniques to facilitate true and permanent changes. And probably the most beautiful aspect of the training that I am a part of is the integrity of the women teaching us.
I am so excited to begin sharing these techniques with 1-1 coaching clients and also with our photography clients!
FINALLY, I WANTED TO SHARE A BIT ABOUT MY PERSONAL HEALTH JOURNEY.
Over the past 13 months, I have been on a weightloss journey which has lead to a renewed love for healthy eating and cooking, movement and exercise and overall mental health. NLP has been a huge driver in these habit changes I have made in my own life and I hope to also share them with others.
I have lost nearly 60 pounds and am working on the last 30ish. If you’d like to follow along on that journey I will link that Instagram account here!
I HOPE THAT MY PERSONAL JOURNEY CAN ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO SEEK THEIR OWN HEALTH; MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY.
And know that you don’t need to lose weight to be healthy. You can love your body and want to change it. You can love your body and not want to change it. You can be healthy at any size or shape. You are beautiful at any size and you deserve photographs that you love of yourself. You deserve to do what makes you feel good. You owe it to nobody but you!
THANK YOU AGAIN FOR THIS SPACE TO SHARE A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT MY OWN PERSONAL GROWTH AND HEALTH JOURNEY. I LOVE YOU!
I have been integrating my own health and wellness journey the past 2 years and was feeling called to more. I work with women who also feel called to more; more freedom, love, trust, abundance, wealth...more for themselves. When I hit what felt like rock bottom after several miscarriages and hating and eating myself to Class III Obesity, I knew I had to do something different. Discovering and utilizing subconscious tools and integrations has helped me lose over 60 pounds. I continue to work on breaking the glass ceilings that I felt would always keep me stuck at overweight and unhappy and finally have the career, marriage and life that I have always wanted for myself. Isn't it beautiful when you get to have it all?
