My name is Andrea.
I have always been a Type-A, go hard all the time person. Who also always worked on becoming better.
I was attending personal development workshops and retreats in high school!
I thought I knew exactly who I was and what I wanted.
Little did I know that life was going to take me on a journey that would force me to clarify exactly who I was and what I wanted.
See by 40 I was exhausted, frustrated, confused, angry, sad, scared and so much more. I no longer bounded out of bed. I was not excited to live my own life.
I was not depressed, I was stuck in a life that I was no longer a part of. The real me just followed along with the me who had let life lead the way.
I knew something had to change.
But before we get to what changed, let's rewind to when I was 26!
At 26, I got married and moved to Australia.
For the first time since I was 14 I could not work, as I did not have my work visa yet.
But like any self respecting Type-A I made a schedule of my apartment chores, workout and tourist stuff.
Yet even with with my schedule the move and lack of work ignited in me new questions beyond how do I get better?
I began to ask things like:
- Who am I?
- What do I want?
I did not think I was confused and lost. I thought I knew exactly what I wanted.
But what started to surface were thought like I never took the time to stop and wonder what I really wanted.
Not family, friends or society - but what do I want?
I had been assuming that everything I was chasing was what I wanted, but was beginning to see it was not.
Australia September 2000
Fast Forward four years...
I have left the corporate world and started a business, we had moved back to the States, bought a house and had my son.
My son's birth catapulted my self discovery journey to the next level.
It was a very difficult time as I was dealing with:
- Physical recovery - the childbirth was not easy and I had a near death experience.
- Postpartum Depression
- A family members mental health and addiction issues
- Deciding if I wanted to keep my business open.
This shifted me even deeper into the question - Who Am I?
This stage also propelled me into wanting to know how to stop repeating old patterns.
I wanted to be more of me and begin to figure out what was triggering me and stopping me from success.
Fast forward nine years...
I am miserable, my marriage is falling apart, my business is struggling, my health is deteriorating and I am miserable.
This triggered four years of intensive work on me.
Not only finding more clarity around who I am, but now actively finding ways to heal old emotional hurts, uncover limiting beliefs and finally for the first time in my life - feeling content and at peace.
Knowing who I am and what I want.
I was finally able to feel inner peace, confidence and real excitement for my life.
Now I get to teach others how I achieved this.
- How I discovered who I am.
- How I healed my emotional hurts and limiting beliefs.
- How I learned to thrive.
Are you ready to claim your inner peace and excitement for life?
