When I moved to Hawaii in 2014 I thought I was going to leave my problems on mainland.... I thought living in paradise would make my life better.... Buuuuut I realized very quickly that I couldn't run away from my issues.... Even with an ocean between us, I was still dealing with family problems and even while spending my days at the beach and soaking up the sun I hated myself... I wanted so badly to be happy and I just didn't know where to begin....I felt lost, hopeless and alone.
I was 50 pounds overweight, none of my clothes fit and my eating habits were OUT OF CONTROL 😔
I never thought starting DVD workout program would change my life... I never thought reading a self help book would make an impact on my negative self talk.... And the biggest kicker, I never thought my story would make a difference in someone else's life.
This past week as my accountability groups have been wrapping up for the month and my team returned from New Orleans I've received so many messages in my inbox that got me like 😭😭😭 3 years ago I was at the lowest of lows of my life, so low I wondered if my life even mattered.... But receiving messages like these 👇🏻 reminded me of how grateful and blessed I am that I found my purpose through my struggles and healing 🙏🏻 "I can't thank you enough for never giving up on me..." " I am so thankful that I met you and most of all GRATEFUL that you allowed me to be a part of your groups." "I rarely ever have the time to bond with other women, and I genuinely loved getting to know you and the other girls." Being able to empower other women, to support them and coach them to focus on self love has been such an amazing opportunity that I never saw coming.... I had my doubts if this was the right fit for me, I thought it was a pyramid scheme, I thought I had to push products on people and to be honest that soooo wasn't my jam AT ALL 🙅🏻 but what I found was by sharing my struggles and obstacles with other women I was able to HELP others heal, grow and become THE BEST versions of themselves 🙏🏻 Long story short, I am so freaking grateful every damn day that this is my J-O-B ❤️
