A year ago, I stood amidst boxes and paint cans in my bare office and wrote furiously as tears blurred my vision. I was tired, I was lonely, I felt empty, broken, unsteady, and unsure of who I even was. I was completely disconnected from myself, plugged into a source outside of myself. I didn’t want to feel this pain anymore, the responsibility was too much with too little reward.
This was a huge turning point for me, because this is when I realized that I’d been looking at everything in my life through a filter. Once the rose-colored glasses came off, I could be more objective and see that my life was in need of a total demolition and overhaul. Part of this overhaul was finding purpose, which I found in coaching – the heart and soul-led profession that I had been doing my entire life, without even knowing there was a label and entire industry out there that defined my heart’s yearning to help nurture and cultivate others. I immediately turned to journaling and manifested the perfect coaching school into my life.
Fast forward to today, and I’m graduating from Life Coaching school with the amazing Beautiful You Coaching Academy. What an amazing journey this has been.
What are some key points of learning I’ve taken away from the past year?
Detachment and true energetic sovereignty. I am detached from the future or any end result, I surrender to the Universe, to God, to Source, (to whatever you want to call it, because it’s all the same thing) and I know everything will work out because the Universe has my back. I am safe.
People may not like the new you, the healing version of you, the powerful you – release them. Over everything, make sure you like yourself.
More self-compassion and self-love are the keys to happiness. When you love yourself, you invest in yourself, you take care of yourself, you are fully equipped to show up in the world as your best to do the most good.
Ego death. Serve your purpose without your ego getting in the way, speak freely with love, not with pride. If you notice you’re speaking from a place of ego, just stfu. =)
Every trigger you experience is an opportunity to heal something. If you’re feeling triggered, dig into yourself and reflect with intense honesty. People are mirrors.
Genuine confidence and validation within myself. I do not need anyone else to validate my feelings and if someone is in a constant state of minimizing my intuition, bye Felicia.
Mindset matters! What we believe and speak to ourselves and others becomes our truth and experience. Nearly everything I wrote in my journal to manifest into my life in January has come to fruition since! If you want it; write it, speak it, embody it! Law. Everything is energy and frequency; I choose to radiate on high levels and magnetize in all of my desires. It’s all happening! Magic is real!
To be a learner for the rest of my life and come at all things with a beginner’s mind to further my expansion.
Books are literally life expansion packs. People are so amazing and inspiring, with so much wisdom to share. Read more, mindlessly scroll less.
Intentions and words are spells. Abracadabra, honey! Live intentionally, set goals for yourself every day.
Rest is just as important as productivity. Create space to recharge! This is a non-negotiable.
Collaborate, do not get stuck in comparison. Every amazing human you admire raises your frequency with their own. This is why it’s so important to watch the company you keep.
Live as art, beauty. It is your birthright. As my baby business has been evolving, I have gone through many phases as I try to sort out who I am, my niche, what I teach, what’s important to me, and who I want to portray myself as. Turns out I’m an intricate art project with infinite layers; whether I look in the mirror, at my IG, or at my website, there is beauty and art, music, and love to be found everywhere. I live to create and I am the creator of my own happiness.
Clarity can be found within. Tune into the body, it will never steer you wrong. Learning to listen is an art form that anyone is capable of.
Meditation and nature are my medicine, my soul-food, my fuel.
I’m forever grateful for this journey and knowing that this is only the beginning of my journey is so exciting and awe inspiring. I can’t wait to look back on this day a year from now to witness the changes, leaps and bounds I know are to come. I’m so thankful for every beautiful soul that has stood by my side in one way or the other throughout this journey. I have made life long friends with humans that my heart has been waiting to be reunited with for lifetimes. I see you, loves. I am so amazed by you, and I’m so honored to witness you blossom and accomplish greatness. Together we rise. Your presence in this world makes my heart sing.
I love you so much.
