Hello… (crickets) So this is what I was expecting after my break became a sabbatical and my sabbatical became “Umm...Am I even doing this anymore?”
When learning how to swim, my instructor said, “You need to exaggerate your strokes. It will feel funny and may even look weird, but it will help you swim better.” See, I’m 5 foot 8 inches and she’s barely 5 feet tall. Although I was supposed to follow what she was doing, I couldn’t follow how she was doing it because we’re built differently. Her shorter limbs required less effort compared to my longer limbs. When trying to copy her smooth, fluid, Olympic-like strokes, my swimming looked more like I was having a darn temper tantrum...
Many times we limit ourselves from achieving our full potential because we’re afraid of what the perception of this “new” us will be. We’re worried about others saying we’ve changed. Everyone wants to be “real” and having someone think we’re a hypocrite doesn’t exactly fit into that image...
I cant believe that this is the last post for 2017! (insert ugly cry) 2017 has been an AMAZING year for me. I was able to start coaching, blogging, joined amazing blog communities, started my degree in Life Coaching and also got accepted into a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy program for next year.

For those who are close to me, they can see how I have suddenly come alive; they can see how my life is … Continue reading 3 Ways I Invest In My Purpose
Happy Tuesday! I have something different for you today. I know you’re expecting a post where I write a few words, make you laugh, make you think, or as some of you have told me, make you cry (sorrrry). Today, I’m not doing any of that.
So you finally discovered what your purpose is and you are ecstatic, excited and elated! You're ready to jumpstart things and finally begin walking in your purpose. That's nice. Why?
Back in the day, when I was young (insert crying face), I used to have this vision of myself on a stage. I was holding a mic in one hand and facing a crowd of people.
