Sometimes you may find yourself in an empty space.
The space between who you were and who you are.
Remnants of the old mixed with the emerging new.
You know that Gwyneth Paltrow movie- Sliding Doors? It showcased two parallel universes where Gwyneth loses her job and finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her. In one universe, she makes her subway train just in time to come home and catch her boyfriend in the act. In the other, she misses that train. How that split moment in time changed her entire life…
Authenticity is a buzz word these days, with everyone striving to be perceived as authentic. The irony of the filters not only placed on our physical body (due to the heightened awareness of others perception of us), but also the process of filtering our own voice, story, beliefs, ideas, leads us further away from ever being perceived as authentic.
I am back in the US right now, taking full advantage of working and traveling while the weathers beautiful. This summer has been one to remember. Full of travel, meeting amazing new people and going all in with my coaching business. I've been thinking a lot lately about how different my life is from even two years ago. I've changed jobs, became a Certified Nutritionist, started my own business and spent a ridiculous amount of time on my own self development (coaches, programs, events, all worth it!)
I started my business at the beginning of the year after graduating with my third degree, as a Nutritionist. I was fully aware of my purpose ten years ago, to coach, to help others through personal transformation. I also needed the time in my twenties to go through mine first.
I graduated and was ready to dive into the world of entrepreneurship. I spent more and more hours on the computer, building a website, creating blog content and keeping up with social media. I started to be bombarded with beautiful (sponsored) photos of women and men covering my newsfeed promising to share their secrets. Whether it was how they went from rags to riches, or achieved freedom based 'five figure months'. I knew these messages were false, but I also knew I needed help to guide me.
