Have The Courage To Be You
Do you know that feeling that you don’t belong? Do you feel sometimes that there is no one who really gets you?
This is how I felt for many years, I just didn’t feel like I belong to the place I lived in, to the life I had. I always knew I wanted more, that I wanted to live somewhere else. I knew that there was a different life out there, different people, different lifestyle, different mindset and I was dying to try it. When I came to NY I finally understood what I was looking for – the diversity I experienced was exactly what was missing in my life. I discovered my heaven, the place where the ideas, cultures, skin colors, lifestyles blend together creating this amazing mixture. That’s why one day in 2013 (after my six visits in NY already) I packed my suitcase, put $1000 in my pocket and moved to NY. Not knowing what the hell I was doing. Now I know it was this huge DESIRE Napoleon Hill writes about, it’s so BIG that you can’t resist it, it pushes you to make your dreams happen. And I made my NY dream happen.
Having a great body was my second biggest dream since I was 18 years old (this was when I gained some weight and went a few sizes up). I always felt that my body was holding me from my true self and was stopping me from many things and experiences. I was tired of that and I finally made the decision to do something about it in 2015 and I got to work. I was very CONSISTENT with my workouts, changed my diet and started liking my body again, and I did it, I got the size I dreamt of.
And that was when I understood that if I don’t change my mindset, I will always look for something that is wrong with me or with my life. This is when my real transformation began.
In 2016 I took some coaching sessions and simultaneously went to Tony Robbins’ workshops (Unleash the Power Within) where I realized that life is all about perspective. It’s not about what actually happens to you, it’s how you react to it. I started looking closer at myself and the patterns that I was built of. I started changing my habits and my approach to almost everything in my life (my body, men, family, friends, job). Gratitude became a huge part of my life and my basic tool. I reached out for the new books, podcasts and new people that I could look up to. I met amazing women who became part of my transformation, I trained with Dr. Pam Denton who helped me to open me up. And I’ve been working on myself ever since because this process never really ends, it just makes you feel better and better about yourself. I understood that transformation is not a change, it’s becoming yourself all over again.
I got to this amazing place inside me where I feel at peace with myself. I’m not looking for anything to fill my void. The void is filled. And I discovered that life can be an amazing journey on daily basis. You don’t need to do anything extraordinary to have an extraordinary life. I noticed that happiness is just always present in our lives. My life changed and I wake up with a smile every day: grateful and happy for yet another day to live.
And I made it my mission to help you to get to that place too. I would love to make your life easier and more joyful. I’ve experienced amazing things in my life; I was lucky to travel a lot and I’ve seen breathtaking views, but nothing is even comparable to that feeling of freedom that I got to now. It’s the feeling of understanding and fully accepting yourself. It’s the feeling of belonging to yourself. A no person or no experience can give you that. You have to be willing to get there yourself and put in some work.
I believe that everyone is unique and that there is no one like you. I believe that everyone has a special mission to accomplish and it’s different for each one of you. And I would love to help you find yours, be part of your journey, guide you through that process and be there for you whenever you need me.
If you feel like there is no one in your life who understands you remember – now there is. I’m here and I know how you feel and what you’re going through. You won’t be alone in this. Now you have at least one person on your side. And that’s all you need. Let’s find your sparkle. It’s time to light it up.
