My journey to being free began three years ago when I decided to cut my then almost bra strap length natural hair off to a TWA. After cutting my hair, I immediately felt liberated and I knew that cutting my hair was more than just a haircut, but it was the start of me being comfortable in my own skin and being free to be me.
The following year after cutting my hair I decided to get professional help on some issues that had literally been haunting me for seventeen years. Yes, you read right.. seventeen years I had suffered with abandonment issues and I was stuck in the past.
I went through three months of counseling and it was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. During the counseling I was able to get clarity about my past and I learned to accept what I was unable to change. The day of my last session, the fifteen year old girl that was abandoned by her mother died and the new woman I was going to become was birthed. (I plan to share more about my story in the book that I am writing this year.)
That same year, I started reading The Four Agreements and I began to question my purpose, why was I here on earth and what was the meaning of my life.
I had this deep desire to be an entrepreneur, but I was unsure what that looked like for me. I can't explain why, but I always thought your purpose was tied to a talent, and I was talentless.
What I knew for sure was that I was passionate about helping others, always optimistic about life and inspiring and motivating others to be better. So what could I do with that??
I had the college degrees, family, house, job, but yet I still felt stuck and unfulfilled. I desired more for my life and I knew deep down that I was suppose to be doing something bigger than working a job that I was unhappy at. I wanted to live a life that felt good to me and I wanted to make an impact in the world.
I started reading and listening to everything I could get my hands on about purpose and personal development. At the end of 2013, I was laid off from my job that I had been employed at for seven years. For some this may have been a devastating situation, but for me I felt like this was my opportunity to pursue and live in my purpose. I took a chance, stepped out on faith and decided to pursue what I had already been unknowingly doing, coaching others to live the life they want.
So why I wish I had this guide…
It would have been so much easier if I had a guide to help me on my journey instead of having to figure it out my own, but you live and you learn, right.
I created the Get Unstuck Workbook because I know what it feels like to...
feel stuck and not know where to start
desire to know your purpose in life
be unhappy and unfulfilled in your personal and/or work life
feel burned out from working full time while balancing a family and having no energy left over for yourself
