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
The Get Unstuck Workbook is designed to help you get started and to begin to reflect on what you want your life to look like. This workbook is not magic. YOU have to do the work. YOU have to take action. YOU have to get started. Period!
