Hi All! Welcome to my first post!! I’m so excited to start sharing this blog with you!! 💥 I have always loved writing so here I am! Yay! 😃
I decided to start this blog for a few reasons. First, I wanted to challenge myself to tell my own personal story and journey to reinvention. Secondly, I wanted to be able to share some of my answers to many of the questions I often get from my clients. And lastly, I wanted to really help people understand the process of reinventing oneself, while also providing resources and guides to help those that want to begin their own journey.
My life has taken me through so many twists, turns, traumas and tests, that I’ve felt like I had only one choice—to share my experiences, with the hope of helping others. These trials,😔 include, the loss and grieving of a parent, loss of friendships, moments of sexual abuse, family and relationship issues, evolutions in my career, stability changes, and overall spiritual and personal growth. These challenges prompted me to look inside myself to see exactly who I am and decide where I wanted to go.
Ultimately, I decided to focus on me 🤗 and make a daily effort to reach every personal, career and spiritual goal, wish and dream that I have! I decided for once, that I would get free, be authentically me and become the priority!
What I know to be true is that, we all want to be as good as we can be, at what makes us who we authentically are. So if you are struggling right now, feeling unlike yourself or stuck, living a life that others say you should be living, or living a life not true to who you are now, wanting more out of life but afraid of making any change... believe me, I understand! 🙏🏾 I’ve been there.
I am so excited to get us started on this new adventure! Get ready, get set, let’s B’Brave and let’s do this! 👍
