I connect with the Earth. I connect with Spirit. Not in a performative way for you, but rather in practical and sustainable ways for myself. And I make plenty of mistakes while I’m doing it because I’m human.
But I always know that I’ll find something to laugh about while I’m striving to do better!
I share what I learn along the way in case it inspires someone else on their own journey. Let my mistakes smooth out the bumps in your road.
I’m well versed in being a fierce mama bear who won’t let you get in my way, especially when it comes to my kiddo, fur babies and partner. And there are still plenty of ways I continue to practice flexing my bravery muscles.
I’m often reminded that I’m a work in progress and whole all at the same time.
So are you.
More than enough.
I’m a big fan of clear communication, freedom of choice and taking responsibility for yourself. I’m not a fan of bullshit.
I’ve dealt with the aftermath of choices I’ve made like quitting a corporate job where I was great at, but hated. And ones I haven’t chosen like the stress of living with rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease.
There have also been other, less dramatic, transitions that have brought challenges that forced me to figure out what my next steps would be. Each time I've survived and learned something along the way. In fact, I’ve also come to love the fact that I’m capable of making choices that better my life in some way.
If credentials make you happy, you should know that after university I worked as a paralegal, a corporate analyst and trainer as well as a program manager. My health motivated me to become a Holistic Nutritionist, Yoga Teacher, and a Certified Curvy Yoga Teacher. Then I got into even more energy work and became a Usui Reiki Master, Medical Reiki™Master, Earth Medicine practitioner and I’m a student of Spring Forest Qigong. I also work as an ESL Teacher. I did mention that I like learning, right?
What does this mean for you?
Sandals and cardigan season (a.k.a. autumn) is my favourite time of year.
I equate the smell of sautéd garlic and onions to love.
I wish the town of Three Pines in the Louise Penny’s Inspector Gamache books was real so that I could visit my friends.
I’ve only lived four years of my life without at least one cat in the house. They were the worst years of my life.
Store bought cookies is the most effort I’m willing to give to any potluck.
