The Nourished Woman

If you are a woman in the prime of your life who is struggling with trying to live a healthy lifestyle, I want to share with you an opportunity to make a transformation with the support of a community of likeminded women. I have been having great success with my clients sharing the things that I have learned over the years through both academic means and life experience. Now I want to share this information with as many women as I can. I have had health and lifestyle challenges in my own life that have been the catalyst to get me where I am today. For years I neglected my own needs to take care of others. Many women find themselves in this position because we often fall naturally into caregiving roles. It may be children who require our attention or an ill spouse, maybe it’s aging parents, grandchildren or neighbors. Regardless, we need to remember the oxygen mask theory and begin to help ourselves so that we can help others. 

I am really excited to think that we will create a community of women who will nurture and support each other through this process. Some of us have been going it alone for too long and it’s time to let someone support you. In this spirit, I am thrilled to announce that 5% of the proceeds of this program will be donated to Salah Freedom. This is a nonprofit organization committed to confronting the issue of sex trafficking and exploitation through advocacy, training, and restorative services. It means so much to me that our community will not only be supporting each other but we will be supporting victims that are rescued from these horrible circumstances. You can check out more about this organization here: Selah Freedom.

You can find out all the details of the program I am offering here: The Nourished Woman. Feel free to email or message me with any questions or concerns. I can help you decide if this program is the right fit for you. I hope to hear from you soon.

There is no right time. There will never the perfect time to do what you have been dreaming about. There will never be a magical moment when all of our obligations are neatly bundled and put away. Because of this, any time is the right time. You can do it now. It can be messy. It’s ok to make mistakes. It’s ok to drop some of the balls you happen to be juggling today. We use excuses to keep us stuck in our comfort zone. I’m too old, I’m too young, I don’t have the right education, I’m too heavy, the list could go on and on. It really comes down to fear. It’s ok to be afraid. But be afraid and do it anyway. I have been working on a project that feels big to me. I am taking steps each day to move forward with something that I am very passionate about. It’s a program that educates and encourages women to be the healthiest they can be. There are moments that I feel excited and sure that this is the right thing for this time. And then there are moments that I want to go hide in my bed for hours. I hear the voices of self-doubt creep in. They say things like, “Who would want to listen to you?” or “Who do you think you are?” Fortunately, I know how to answer back. I have been through similar situations and have learned to be able hush the chatter and walk through the fear. Every time I walk through the fear, I come out the other side a little stronger. In moments of weakness, I ask myself how I will feel a year from now if I don’t follow through. I imagine that I would have regret if I stop now. They say that we are more likely to regret the things we haven’t done. I would rather try and fail than not try. I also rely heavily on my community. My husband, sisters, parents, friends, and even people who I have never met face to face are helping me every step of the way. It is so important for me to remember that even though this is a solo project, I don’t have to do anything alone. A supportive community has been a key to my sanity for the past 17 years.

Is there something that you are wanting to do? Are you holding back? What are you waiting for? We have one chance to live the life we want to live. Allow yourself to express yourself fully. Get comfortable with imperfection. Be available to support and encourage others who are putting themselves out there. As Marianne Williamson so beautifully stated in Our Deepest Fear, “As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.”
