In this my first blog I write from a place of energy, inspiration and excitement.
At the same time I feel excited, I also feel vulnerable and naked as I let my guard down and share my personal story with the world. The strange thing is, I know in doing so I am following my heart and doing what I love rather than continuing to live my life closed off, wearing a mask and fitting in by not showing my weaknesses to the world.
I have spent the last decade searching for the answers and meaning I needed to understand why I have suffered from a chronic injury for so long and what it has given me apart from a hell of a lot of pain and suffering. I have been determined to do whatever it took to find the answers and overcome the biggest challenge of my life.
Until I took the time to look within and see exactly what I was gaining from my injury and my life, I found myself feeling angry, depressed and anxious a lot of the time. I just couldn’t understand why I should have to endure chronic pain and suffering when everyone around me was making the most of their 20’s and 30’s.
What I discovered is, that had of it not been for my injury and the challenges I was facing in every area of my life, I would never have dedicated my life to gaining all the knowledge, insights, wisdom, compassion and empathy I needed to be a coach and fulfil my dreams. Instead, I would have been out socialising all the time, travelling the world and living life to the max.
As I follow my heart and share my story with the world, I encourage you to take a step back from the challenges you are facing no matter how big or small and look to see what you are actually gaining from your experience.
I know that if you take the time to look within like I did, you may just find that you are being given everything you need to help you on your journey to create the life of your dreams.
The surprise is, it is just not in the way you thought it should be.
