my story

 

Life Coach. Gratitude Girl. Quote Junkie.

I want to will learn to play guitar.

I grew up in what I believe a strict home and believed what I was taught was the truth. Now I know better. I lost my dad to cancer when I was 17 years old, he died on his 38th birthday. My dad always breathed belief in me and told me I could do anything I set my mind to. As an adult, my mom has been my biggest cheerleader.

Playing practical (good humored) jokes on each other makes me laugh. The element of surprise. My husband and kids donʼt always think itʼs as funny.

I married my high school sweetheart Dave. We lost our first son early in our marriage. We have 3 beautiful and healthy children – Samantha, Sevren and Kate. Dave and I separated for just shy of one year during our 13th year of marriage. We have since reconciled and our relationship is a loving partnership. Who knew it could be so good!!

The Voice makes me cry. The talent, the dreams, the goosebumps.

Iʼve felt most fulfilled in positions where I was helping others which led me to the field of Life Coaching. In 2009 I became a Certified Life Coach after training with Martha Beck best-selling author and monthly columnist for O – Oprah Magazine. Most recently, I earned my Masters Certification in 2011, and Reiki II Certification in March 2013.

I love the sun on my back, being barefoot, sitting by fires, laughter and music… just a few of my many loves.

Through the years I continued to find myself in search of something more yet feeling guilty. I had the devoted husband, healthy children, warm home, nice cars – what was wrong? I was taking care of everyone else and found I didnʼt love or know myself, and I didnʼt even realize it. Once I learned how to connect with my body, notice my thoughts (mind) and follow my hearts desires (soul), my life changed. I can now say I love life and love being me and it feels so damn good!

Want some? I’ll help you! My deepest wish for you… love life, be you, on purpose.

One regret dear world, that I am determined not to have when I am lying on my deathbed
is that I did not kiss you enough. ~Hafiz
