Sure, you could say I'm a warrior because of my 20 years of experience in the military.
OR because of my experience talking and inspiring hundreds of women all over the world.
OR maybe because, at 35 years old, I was able to go from a size 9 to a size 0.
After all, these are pretty 'warrior-y' things, right?
But I'm a goddess warrior because of so much more than that.
I have been able to rise up in the face of adversity.
You see, I struggled with stress, depression, anxiety and self-sabotage.
All of this while my husband was re-deployed for the 4th time
to Afghanistan leaving me with in an extremely stressful work environment with my children to care for.
I felt so alone.
I didn't know how to communicate and connect with my children.
I was losing the battle and life was consuming my light and willingness to get in the fight.
How could I take care of my family
when I wasn't taking control of myself?
I ended up having a massive panic attack that took me straight into the hospital.
Feeling like I couldn't breathe and seeing my health as just 'another inconvenience,'
and not understanding why me?
And then a nurse put a pill under my tongue and within seconds this pill
opened up my chest and allowed me to breathe.
At that very moment I made a decision that would completely transform my life:
I decided to go from being a worrier to
BECOMING A WARRIOR
I fought back.
I wasn't going to be a victim anymore, because I wanted more from my life.
I changed my life through mindfulness, reflection and perseverance and it truly felt amazing.
I moved past depression, anxiety and lack of self-worth into becoming an
empowered woman that can do it all and be it all.
I found my calling in helping other women do the same.
You want to hear the truth?
We all have our stories and our battles.
We are all going through our journeys and need the guidance to get us to our destination.
My story might or might not be different than yours.
But I know your struggles, I know your pain and trust me when I say that your life could be so much more.
All it takes is one decision.
Are you ready to make yours?
