“The most selfish thing you can do is give to others. The most selfless thing you can do is give to yourself” -Unknown
At 25, I had it all. A blossoming career, what I thought would be a future husband, and bustling lifestyle in the heart of Chicago. Perfect life, right? Wrong. On one fateful night, I found myself sitting in my bed surrounded in a puddle of tears. Thoughts of suicide swarmed my head, I had to admit that life was not as perfect as it seemed. So I did what everyone woman does when she is going through a mental mid life crisis. I cut off my hair and restarted my life.
With my boo and sporting a brand new do, I made the drastic decision to move across the US to Los Angeles. One and a half years, two jobs, and three heartbreaks later, the mysticism of the city ran dry. I found myself sadder than ever. I was forced to sit down and take a closer look at my life, my friends, my career. The reason I was so unhappy hit me.
“I spent the last 27 years of my life being selfless. From my job working at a non profit, to my love life--even my hobby as a mentor, it was all about giving to others. Yet, I was so afraid to give to myself.”
At that moment, I decided to start living for myself. All my love was poured back into MY heart. All my extra money was poured back into MY dreams. All of my care was poured back into MY self. Things began to change. Life began to work for me rather than against me. I found when I gave to myself, I was able to better give to others.
I had to share what I learned with other women. Through workshops, videos, and coaching, I teach women to honor their spirit by being self serving.
As women we pour into others without hesitation, but stumble and stutter when it comes to pouring into ourselves. I teach women to honor their spirit by being unapologetically selfish. We tell ourselves that we do not deserve the love that we so freely give to everyone else. It ends today, because,
“YOU DESERVE THE SAME LOVE YOU SO FREELY GIVE TO OTHERS”
Check out my videos, workshops, and indulge in a coaching session to learn how you can honor your spirit by being more self-serving.
