So, I haven't shared this part of my trip yet. While we were in IL, I met my friend Heather and her sweet baby Elvah for the very first time. We both went to Bradley and lived in Peoria but never really met or knew each other. We are guessing that I served her on Long Island night at One World a handful of times but that doesn't count.
Fast forward to last year. We connected on IG through mutual friends. Heather contacted me in October about wanting to try Shakeology and its safety with pregnancy and nursing. I had been following her on IG because of her photography and fell in love with her spirit, so I was super excited that she reached out to me, specifically as a coach, because I knew she was •my people• I had been creepin' on her for months and loved her pregnant posts, so when I found out I was pregnant, too, there was another notch of connectivity. She saw that I had continued my daily dose of superfoods throughout and decided she was going to save up and sign up when her baby arrived. She acknowledged the value in what Shakeo offered and did what needed to be done to have it. #priorities
We kept in contact and that day happened. She became a Soul Shiner. ✨ We connected deeply and found out we are so much alike. 👯 We shared weekly video chats and long talks. She was virtually present for the end of my pregnancy and the birth and following months of Frankie being here. It's so lovely to have someone who GETS YOU. That's Heather.
So, I helped her navigate postpartum fitness- it was my dream to help mommies. She is KICKING ASS with her dedication to programs through the All Access CP and gets her daily Shakeo to help with her milk supply and overall health. And she helps me work through the new baby stuff that makes me say HAAAALP! 🤣 All of this wouldn't have happened without BB.
So, the point of this is- I love my friend. I'm so happy to have met her and to have our babies stare at each other and smile. I waited to give her that hug for MONTHS and it was just like hanging out via FaceTime, just in real life. So better. 😜
I love my job. Being a coach brought us together and has helped us both. The Soul Shine Tribe wouldn't be as shiny without her.
