- “If I work harder, I will have more.”
- “After years of sacrifice, good things will come to me.”
- “If I marry him/her my life will be secure.”
There you are. Working two, maybe even three, jobs. It’s the sacrifice you are willing to make to get ahead. Getting ahead means happiness. You seek refuge in a relationship in order to feel fulfilled, needed and secure. This is the only way good fortune will come into your life. But you are exhausted — so tired you neglect your health. The constant sacrifices you make turn into resentment and anger. Your relationship suffers. The only thing coming into your life is pain and misery.
You are not alone
I had three jobs and logging in more than 50 hours a week. I worked hard for money, and as soon as I made it, I spent it. I didn’t have any savings, and I for sure didn’t have any financial goals. I would help others financially before I helped myself. Worst of all, there was this constant sinking feeling that lingered in the background of every moment. I was a good person, I worked hard, I sacrificed … so why was my life not fulfilling me or sustaining me?
Fed up and exhausted, I made a choice to turn it all around.
I realized that I never took the time to create my own personal definition of prosperity. And yet I expected prosperity to show up in my life. I was looking outside of myself in order to fill the emptiness. I kept asking myself question after question. Some answers were bitter pills to swallow. I saw some things about myself that were downright ugly. But I allowed myself to own the courage it took to do the work, ask the questions, and make the changes. And guess what? I can now say that I am fortunate enough to live a life that is prosperous not only in money, but also in time, relationships, especially with my husband, choices, resources, purpose, and service.
I’ve always been someone who didn’t fit into the social boxes that society imposes
so I’ve learned to create my own boxes. I have owned three businesses as a self-starting entrepreneur and financial professional. I own a holistic practice in which I am able to work with people one-on-one to help them become more connected to their bodies and their true purpose in life. On this amazing path toward true prosperity, and through my professional and personal experiences, I realized that my purpose in life is to be a bridge for others on the same path. A bridge that supports and invites others to integrate their relationships with prosperity — on a physical level, and a mental and emotional level. This integration allows a life lived out loud, with purpose, with prosperity flowing on every level.
What if you could live your most fulfilled and prosperous life?
What would that look like? How would you feel? How would you show up in your life? In the lives of loved ones? How much of an impact could you make in the world? These are some of the questions that burn in my mind and keep me seeking to find answers from my own personal explorations and answers in the stories of others. You are invited to take this journey with me.
