Does Your Future Vision Need a Rewrite?

 

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that sometimes in life things don’t turn out the way we expect. What we THINK is going to make us feel happy, confident and fulfilled doesn’t always work out that way.

For example, when I was a young girl I had this vision of my ideal future:

I would be living in a big city, working in the fashion or entertainment industry, rubbing shoulders with cool and fancy people, making tons of money, shopping, partying and eating out whenever I wanted.

I imagined this to be the absolute PINNACLE of success and happiness.

Cut to me at the age of 25. I was a high-end hair stylist, living in Toronto, making tons of money, with a full life of friends, shopping and gallivanting about the city. This one night, I was a fancy film industry party when I had this striking moment of clarity.

I WAS LIVING THE LIFE I HAD ALWAYS DREAMED OF.

This was exactly the Future Vision of my youth! and yet…

Instead of feeling successful and happy I felt empty and…unfulfilled.

When I looked deeper into the reality of my life I realized that all wasn’t as it seemed on the surface.

I wasn’t taking care of myself on any level. Not my body, not my emotions, not my mind or my soul. Even my environment was in a shambles, I was barely ever home because my life was a constant cycle of work, party repeat.

I was not listening to what my mind, body and spirit needed AT ALL. I also had the sneaking suspicion that my beloved career/identity of being a high end hair stylist wasn’t quite ‘cutting’ it anymore (forgive the pun😜).

I knew it was time to make some big changes in my life and figure out what my NEW Future Vision would be.

However it was TERRIFYING to imagine a shift in my career path because I had invested so much time in becoming really good at doing hair and I didn’t have any other skills that I was aware of. 

So I got really curious about what TRULY excited me within my current life and career.

What I loved most about my job was the confidence boost my clients left my chair with. I got curious about how to make that experience of self-confidence and well-being last longer than a new hairstyle.

I used myself – my own sense of self-esteem and well-being – as a test subject. I tried different approaches and observed the results. I didn’t view any of these changes as FOREVER I was just doing small experiments!

The experiments led to results beyond my expectations! Long story short, getting curious about how to take care of myself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually cleared the path before me and led to my training as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, a Reiki Practitioner and finally a Personal Growth and Leadership Coach.

Over the last 10 years I’ve learned everything I could about shedding the old patterns and habits of thinking and behaviour that no longer serve me and made ACTUAL LASTING CHANGE in the way I cared for myself and designed my life.

I live in a beautiful home with my wonderfully supportive husband who exceeds all relationship expectations I could have ever imagined.

I maintain healthy habits that allow me to live with a strong and balanced body, mind and soul.

I started my own coaching business and now have the freedom and flexibility to work the hours I choose from the comfort of my home.

I help to transform how my clients view themselves, their circumstances and future possibilities. Being of service to others in this way fills my cup every day!

I’m not saying all of this to brag, because I truly am not special in any of this. I just saw that other people were living a life of true contentment and fulfilment and I got curious about how they got there so I could learn to do this for myself.

I’m here now to share these tools with you in a MUCH more efficient and expedited way than the YEARS it took me to figure this all out on my own. AND your journey doesn’t have to look like mine. That’s what my work is all about. Using these fundamental tools to help you find YOUR OWN WAY towards your Ideal Future Vision with confidence and courage!

Does any of this resonate with you? Have you been going down life’s path, only to realize you are heading towards the wrong Future Vision for you? Would you like to get curious and excited about the possibilities? I’d love to hear about it so feel free to reach out and share!

If you are ready to rewrite your Future Vision to one that feels exciting, fulfilling and aligned with your truest self, then stick around! I’ll be offering insights and tools to help you clarify the path to YOUR Ideal Future Vision!

Pregnancy and Entrepreneurship – Expectations Vs. Reality

I am self-employed, 31 weeks pregnant, and I was WOEFULLY unprepared for the experience that it’s been so far. I had big expectations of what I could accomplish during my pregnancy and how to set myself up for maternity leave. Little did I know what my body, mind, heart and soul was in for.

Challenging my Beliefs Around Growth

There is no growth without discomfort.

I said this to my coach in a recent session and she responded by saying: “That’s a limiting belief.”

Mind. Blown.
