“Help me feel better!” was the cry of my heart after realizing I didn’t want to feel sick, tired, stressed and overweight anymore! Here’s my story and how and why I became a life coach:
My testimony is more lengthy than others. I was born and raised Roman Catholic. Went to a Catholic school and graduated High School. As a child, the words of my grandparents were negative, “I was not going to amount to anything.” I assumed they were correct, but God was working in my life knowing I would do His plan, not theirs. Surrounded by Christians all my life, I was blessed by their prayers for my soul. My soul was dark and started to believe these lies that were told me. So, I acted out exactly how everyone wanted me to be. I drank, smoked cigarettes and partied as well as tried other religious beliefs such as Paganism, Buddhism or any other religious belief system out there. I was lost and desired to be found.
I hated myself and wished I was never born. The prayers of angels saved my life because one day I awoke from my slumber and started walking in the light of our Heavenly Father. It took a beautiful three (3) year old to help me along the path that God wanted for me. This little gift from God gave me hope where I never had it before. I couldn’t even look in the mirror until the scales were removed from my eyes. The lies told were not the truth. I wasn’t dumb and stupid like they made me feel. I was smart, generous and kind with a gentle spirit that needed to be awakened from the depths of hell that I was living. This little three (3) year old was my daughter. She asked me, “Mom, will you go to church with me?” Who would think a child could change the fate of a thirty-year-old single mother?
A Fresh Start and the Journey to Feeling Better
Prayers from those who believed in me and knew I was a child of God is what saved this soul from the pits of hell. I desperately wanted change and I asked the Lord to help me feel better and I soon began to realize that God had a greater plan than I intended for my life. The struggles and tribulations in life are now my past and a tool to help others go forward into tomorrow. I have been given a second chance in life and am now re-married and we desire to adopt a child soon.
This prompted me to attend Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I graduated as a health coach.
My desire is to help people become aware of their whole life. As a Health Coach, I will help in the Primary foods. Primary foods are anything in your life that nourishes you but does not come on a plate.
The areas are:
- Spirituality: Develop a spiritual practice that fits your beliefs and gives depth and meaning to your life.
- Relationships: Have healthy relationships that support you.
- Career: Find work you love or find a way to love the work you have.
- Physical Activity: Find a form of movement you enjoy and do it regularly along with secondary foods which is the food you eat.
My goal is to encourage, cultivate and promote healthy eating and while living a balanced life. I am dedicated to inspiring overworked, stressed professionals to become healthy, wealthy, and live joyful lives! I want them to feel better and enjoy life to the fullest.
