Wellness is “the state of being in good health, especially as an actively pursued goal” - Oxford English Dictionary
Wellness is a daily choice, not a destination
Pause a moment. Breathe deep. And picture a flower...full of healthy, vital blossoms. Full of life. Living out exactly what it was meant to be. And know that it didn't get there on it's own...it took nourishment, care and support for that flower to thrive.
ARE YOU THRIVING?
Go deep. Be honest with yourself. Are you living in line with your values? Being authentic in your relationships with others? Bringing your best you to your family, friends, and colleagues? Waking up - most days - with a smile on your face and a deep sense of purpose and joy?
I hope that you can wholeheartedly answer "yes" to these questions. But if you can't, know that you are not alone. And that you CAN thrive.
I've been in a place where the answer to these questions was a wholehearted "no." It took time, honesty with myself, diving deep into personal growth work and faith, and the support and guidance of valued friends and teachers to become the me that I am today - joyful, alive with passion, and clear in purpose.
I care deeply about helping others live their best lives, using coaching, yoga, sport, and deep conversation to help others blossom in their own lives. Together, we blossom. I look forward to connecting with you!
As we journey together, I'll encourage you to connect with your values. They act as guideposts along the way toward living your best life. It's important for you to know a bit about some of the values that light the way for me in my life and work:
"Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day." - Brené Brown
We were each created uniquely, meant to live out OUR lives. Our lives and no one else's. As I've embraced this truth in my life - letting go of who I thought others needed me to be, of who I thought I was supposed to be - and lived my own unique brand of authentic, I've found tremendous freedom and a deep connection with what really matters to me.
I find deep joy in seeing others choose to embrace their authentic selves, live out their values, and grace the world with their unique souls.
JOY AND LOVE
"If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." - African Proverb
In our world of busy and burnout, where isolation is all too easy, the gift of community can be overlooked. Yet it is in relationship with others that we experience love, profound growth, belonging, and encouragement.
We blossom together. I've experienced this truth in my life, and encourage you to pursue and value a life lived in community. Whether you have a community of several or many, give one another life; support one another; and welcome growth together.
"Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage." - Brené Brown
Living wholeheartedly - embracing who we are and living THAT out - takes work and courage. It means boldly saying "no" and letting our "yes" be heartfelt. It means allowing ourselves to be vulnerable - risking failure and risking success, letting ourselves be seen for who we are, and showing up to do the work we need to do to own our stories.
As I've embraced living wholeheartedly, my relationships - with others and myself - have blossomed. And I notice a deeper clarity and purposefulness in my life. I enjoy helping others connect with their wholehearted, purposeful and best selves!
