My Journey to Success
Starting from when I was a child I always cared about the well being of others. In my teen years I developed a natural ability to guide and encourage people and friends and family often came to me for help. When I reached my 20's, however, I began to experience depression. Life wasn't going as I had planned and I was feeling helpless to change it. I wanted more out of life but wasn't sure how to get it. My depression got worse and eventually I had almost no will to live. My life was feeling empty and no matter what I tried to do I could not find enjoyment in anything. I had highs and lows but eventually depression had hit its peak and I could not stand to live one more day, hour, minute or second in the state I was in.
So, I decided I was going to commit an entire year to changing and improving my life. And yes, I had made past attempts to get better but they often only lasted a day or two. This time I was going to devote the next year to learning, reading, researching, experimenting and doing whatever it took to overcome depression and create the life I wanted to live. I had always known that I was meant to spend my life helping others improve their lives but first I had to help myself and I was now determined to make it happen. The next year would be the birth of the "new me".
Although I started off excited and motivated, the journey proved to be a very difficult one, and I was met with a lot of resistance from the "old me" who had found comfort in my old ways. I could have eeeeasily given up many times and I definitely took some steps forward and some steps backward along the way but I just kept going.
Throughout the journey I gained a lot of valuable experience, knowledge and tools that helped me overcome depression and that I still use to keep myself on the right path. At the time, my struggles were almost more than I could bare but I consider them now to be a blessing because they have equipped me to help others get through the trying times in their lives and this is what brings me the ultimate gratification. I am now living each day with purpose and passion by being a resource to empower my clients to take control of their lives and live in freedom.
