In Episode 22, we hear from me. In Part 2 of my personal series I share the second half of my story – the story of triumph, confidence, empowerment, and choosing myself. For most of my life the choices I made were done so to please others. I was a rock solid people pleaser with a zest for life.
When my fiancé left me in March of 2019, I crumbled. With my momentary destruction also came the collapse of my concern of what others opinions were. That break-up broke me open in beautiful ways; all of which I’m unbelievably grateful for.
What followed was an awareness. I’d accepted that I’d lost sight of myself while pursuing a life I thought I wanted. This created a curiosity within me to find out why. Why and when did I stop choosing myself? Did I ever truly choose myself? Did I know myself?
These questions set me on a year long journey of self-exploration in which I took a full inventory of all aspects of my life. Within my spiritual, physical, emotional, financial and relational world, was I surrounding myself with things and people I loved? Was I choosing joy? Was I choosing positive, fun experiences or was I choosing what everyone else wanted me to be.
The journey isn’t over but what I learned in this past year is going to shape me for the rest of my life. I’m in a really positive, fulfilling place and in this episode I share all of the things I did to get here. I am happy, at peace, and in love with myself and life.
Enjoy the journey. TRUST the journey. Take inventory of your world then move in a direction that will bring you the most joy. Choose yourself.
