I was settling, unfulfilled, and frankly quite angry at myself.
I’ve always chosen being safe and comfortable over being brave. For example, going to the college my best friend chose just to stay in my comfort zone, not speaking up for myself when I felt disrespected or going after the unfulfilling job for security. Because of my need to feel comfortable I settled, I was taken advantage of and I dealt with years of depression.
I didn’t trust myself. I was angry for not going after what I wanted. After several years I realized that I was living a life that I didn’t love. I was settling big-time from my relationships to the career I had chosen. And the thing is, at the time, I didn’t think I deserved better.
I wasn’t doing what I wanted and instead did all the “right ” or “safe” things, stayed quiet, put everyone’s needs first, and I was miserable. And as a result, I kind of gave up on myself. I was hopeless and just going with the flow of life. Because of these choices and how I showed up day to day and my relationship with myself was suffering.
I felt like I did everything as planned. I was there for others, I went to school, got a good-paying job, bought a home, and was doing all the things I thought were the path to success.
But I was unfulfilled, stressed, and felt lost. I felt there had to be more to life than this. More than just working, going home, watching tv, and repeat day by day. I was unhappy with the life that I ultimately created and who I was being in my life.
Then, I decided it was up to me if I wanted things to be different.
So I began to learn about myself and discover what I really wanted. I started to learn how to use my voice and ended unhealthy relationships. I had to speak up and show up in my life in a way that I hadn’t before. I had to break out of this passivity and start doing things even if they were scary. And surprisingly my confidence grew with each new challenge I took on.
I began learning everything I could about personal development and confidence. I took classes, did workshops, started therapy, read books, listened to podcasts, anything I could get my hands on. I began spending my time intentionally and doing the things I REALLY wanted to do.
It was then that I decided to take a chance on myself and do something I had always wanted but was too afraid to do, I went to get my certification as a professional coach. It wasn’t like anything I had ever done career-wise nor did it fit in a perfect box like everything else I had done but I decided to trust myself and do it. And I loved it! Leading me to begin my own coaching business and on a journey of being brave.
No more ” should do”, going with the flow or what is expected of me. No more limits, no more faking. Every day is and continues to be an opportunity to be brave, use my voice and go after what I want. And I want the same for you. Because life is one of our greatest gifts and it is best lived fully and authentically.
Our deepest view of ourselves shows up in the daily actions and choices that lead to our destiny. I want to support you in showing up and speaking up in your own life.
