The easiest way to get healthy….

Look I read over 100 books about health now…

I have studied a Quantum Health Coach certification, to become a yoga teacher and I am currently studying a Bachelor of Natural Medicine…

But what I can say is…

My most important understanding and knowledge about health came with…

Sitting at the chemo chair…

When I understood the value of it…

Being dependent on medication…

When I literally need it each week…

Suffering physically…

I am not sure how many times I got pricked and pocked…

how many times I was in unbearable pain and discomfort…

My understanding of health came from slowly building a different relationship with my body…

Understanding what was going in my mind…

And connecting to my soul…

That sounds full on right?

The truth is…

There wasn’t and there isn’t a quick way…

There wasn’t and there isn’t a magic pill..

It is a little like believing in the get rich quick scheme…

There isn’t one right!

But somehow we put all our efforts on that…

The money making…

The external stuff…

The stuff that doesn’t contribute to our health one single bit…

So if you are serious about taking radical responsibility about your health…

And you are not looking for a magic pill,…

I would love to hear from you…

BOOK A CALL

And if you think you have a winning formula and you are doing everything you can to support your health.

I am proud of you!

Does this sound familiar?

You wake up thinking: I am exhausted!!!

And a voice inside you answers: but you need to keep going….

To which you answer: Yes I know.

Then you jump on your treadmill and you start your day…

By the way the treadmill here is not a real one, it is just your life…

You can observe from here how that goes…

It is a never ending race where you go from one thing to another with nothing left for you.

I never thought there was another way…

I thought everybody had to just run themselves ragged…day in day out…

I thought this was the only way to living…

Until I was forced to find another way…

I always say to my husband that if my cancer had been Stage 1 or Stage 2, I would have gone back straight onto that treadmill again…

Sadly this is the reality of it all…

I needed a big shake up…

My wake up call needed to be serious…SUPER SERIOUS…for me to listen…

So I did…

In the process of leaving my corporate job and starting my business, I thought for a moment that everyone would like to hear my story…

Everyone would like to see that there was another way…

But I realized that mostly I speak to the older version of myself…

And the older version of myself would have never done, seen or believed that there was another way…

She was so stuck in that pattern that she needed something pretty big to stop that treadmill.

Besides she was too scared to admit she was wrong…

She was too embarrassed to admit she needed help.

I realized that to stay focus on bringing awareness to the “old version of myself”, I needed to connect to something a lot deeper inside me…

So daily I connect to the “old me” and I feel so much compassion for that lady…

who tried so hard…

who never gave up…

but who secretly wanted something else….

If you wanna reach out for help, you know where I am.

Are you taking self responsibility for your life?

When I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Bowel Cancer, I knew I couldn’t count on anybody or anything outside of me. I needed to count on me only…

Meaning…I needed to take full responsibility for what I had done to get me to my diagnosis. There was no more stories, blaming, resentment that I could depend on if I wanted to survive chemotherapy.

I knew turning up to chemo wasn’t going to save me. Cancer recurrence is massive…and I didn’t want to live a life walking in egg shells, scared that cancer was going to come back…

Taking personal responsibility is very different than blaming myself. I never for one moment regret how I lived up to that point, I just made a decision to make different choices from that moment on…

I started reading every book I could find on health, cancer, diet, exercise, emotional healing…you name it. I couldn’t leave up to chance anymore…

I needed to take this seriously…

I felt I got another chance to live…

I wasn’t going to press repeat this time and stay stuck thinking everything I had done to that point was right…

I had to let go of the need to be right…

I had to let go everything I knew behind…

I had to let go everything I felt was contributing to my diagnosis…

Life is constantly changing…throwing us curve balls….sometimes pretty big ones…

We can choose to stay in the same place, doing the same thing and getting the same results

Or we can change to adapt, change and respond to it by accepting personal responsibility and making different choices.
