“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor & some style." -Maya Angelou
A friend of mine sent me this quote years ago; she said it reminded her of me. It instantly resonated with my soul and is the essence of my truth. Life has taught me that you don't have to settle nor stay stuck suffering. You can mute the Dream Killers, be your authentic self, make your daydreams come true and thrive!
Whether it’s personal or corporate, it’s my life’s purpose to help you accomplish Power Moves: dynamic goals transformed into reality.
I KNOW that you can make Power Moves and thrive. I am doing it, my clients are doing it, and so can you. It’s probably difficult to figure out how to get unstuck and identify what’s holding you or your organization back. Perhaps you need success strategies to move forward. It’s okay. That is what I am here for.
All you know is you’ve made achievements but outgrowing certain aspects of your current career, life, people, etc. You work so hard but something is definitely missing. So, you’re daydreaming about doing something bigger and better.
Or year after year, you see the same issues at your organization. Effective, long-term change never really happens.
If you have not started or can’t finish those goals, it is for a reason. That's where I come in. We can make it happen, step-by-step.
This Is My Journey..
It’s easy to tell someone not to settle and pursue their daydreams, right? Well, I had to do the work to make my Power Moves come true, too. I had to face my fears, challenge my beliefs, and conquer many obstacles throughout my life.
I’ve always had a vision and an unapologetic desire to have a fulfilling life that I know is worth living. Yet, after all of the hard work I had already put in, life started giving me lemons again. So, getting my restoration and fulfillment back was the only thing that mattered.
Before I started Anew Life to Live LLC, I thought I was living a fulfilled life. I already had my Master’s Degree and an 8-year Professional Counseling Career; I was a Professional School Counselor that “wore many hats,” and a Mental Health Counselor 4 years prior to that.
To be fair, maybe I was fulfilled at some point. Parts of my career felt rewarding. But, life was beginning to show me in so many challenging ways that it was time for a change. At least a shift. Maybe that career was only part of my purpose.
I should keep trying to convince myself that I am still content, right?
So what if I am no longer happy, stressed out, overworked, underappreciated, and getting sick. I’ve done enough work in my life and this will just have to be it, right? No more risks, effort, and pursuing true happiness.
Thankfully, I stopped lying to myself about my career dissatisfaction, the unraveling of the life that I knew, and how everything would automatically be fine. My persevering spirit and relationship with God helped me to finally stop fighting to hold on to a life that was no longer serving me. I realized it was time for life anew! I waved goodbye to my fear of the unknown and re-defined fulfillment in my life.
It wasn’t easy, but I overcame those obstacles, committed to a lifestyle change for my health, got a new support system, and received personal healing. I became a Certified Life & Career Coach. I took a “leap of faith,” by leaving my hometown, Chicago, and relocated to San Diego, California for a few years. Besides, that life that I was trying to hold on to was obvi pushing me out. This is where I gave birth to Anew Life to Live LLC.
This change allowed me to continue my new life full of peace, career satisfaction, fulfillment and
happiness that I redesigned.
My life and career still evolve. I am transforming lives. I have written a life-changing workbook, utilizing my experiences and knowledge to do Transformational Speaking, Corporate Services and more to come!
Who knew that refusing to settle and embracing change would lead me to all of this? My next level goals changed my life! But, hey, isn’t that part of living a dynamic life? Make your next move your best move, love. I’m here cheering you on and ready to partner with you.
