Thirty years ago, I hit rock bottom.
I lost so much of everything I cared about in my life. The amount of anxiety and trauma made me feel so bad that I was put in the hospital. I could barely exist throughout each day.
If it weren’t for scrapping myself up off the floor and learning the pursuit of wisdom in seeking inner peace, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
Today, I’m a respected voice of change and motivation. Thousands of people come for simple advice to become the best version of themselves in the pursuit of wisdom of finding inner peace and living life successfully.
Learn more about me…
from the things I continue to practice and remember every day that are key pieces to my life:
It’s not worth getting upset over the small things.
I call them petty things. I used to get angry over the words people would use. But, when I realized it wasn’t personal. It was just them venting, or reacting from their own personal trauma. My soul became wide open. I started understanding people from where they were at in life.
Tomorrow is a new day.
Through practice I’ve learned that in twenty-four hour life takes on a new perspective. Sometimes pain can make you feel like it’s the end of the world. But through deep breathing, rest, changing the fixed mindset. Life can have a whole new meaning.

Life is too short too waste on negative thinking
I think this was the hardest thing to recognize within my soul. That just because I might have a bad day or maybe it was that I didn’t feel good. That tomorrow wasn’t going to be a bad day, nor was the next week.
I have found that practicing awareness is living in the moment and letting go was just letting that emotion go within the next 30 seconds. Breathe in. Breathe out. Gone.
Focus on the positive things in your life.
Something I do at the time is… When I’m having a bad moment, I try to find a small win in that moment. Like for instance I’m driving my daughter and I to Starbucks for our Sunday mother and daughter day, and someone cuts me off.
Nearly hits me with their car. I pass through that bad experience quickly and remind myself about what this day is going to be. [That is building a beautiful memory with my daughter] That’s the small win. It’s not about the careless driver. It’s about me and my daughter engaging in sharing laughter and moments.
Try to see the situation from a different perspective.
Something I understand is stubbornness. Another emotion I had to learn to process is that I can possibly be wrong in the choices I can make. Practicing in awareness has taught me to find my faults and to admit to them if I am to quick to set an expectation or judge someone. To see things in a different light.
My mission is awareness: to share relatable tools to reboot the brain. Find inner peace that empower you to create a better life. I want to help you feel less alone, to inspire you in every single step and find laughter as we learn, grow, and adapt to this new lifestyle together.
I know if I can shave of some of the time of processing the pain or trauma I’ve given myself, well, that’s to say that’s a life lived.
