Corporate Drone turned Life Enthusiast!
I spent over a decade in complete misery doing exactly as I “should do”. Living in the suburbs, commuting over an hour each way to my unfulfilling corporate job. Spending the weekend running errands and taking my son to his latest event. Slowly, so slowly I didn’t even notice it was happening, I lost myself and lost my joy. Slipping deeper into depression, hopelessness and resentment. My soul is a natural extrovert, free-spirit and wild wonderer, yet pursuing my own dreams was something I was continuously told I should not do. Work hard for that one vacation per year, and that retirement that is decades away. And maybe, just maybe, the stars will align perfectly and the perfect opportunity will magically be upon you to suddenly drop it all and actually pursue your passion.
I finally got tired of waiting for things to just get better. I was lost. My life was falling apart because I was falling apart. From the inside out. Waiting to love my job, love my commute, love the suburbs and the isolated life it provided.
It finally stopped being OK to not be OK.
I took some big, bold and scary steps way out of the perceived comfort zone, and into a world of uncertainty. Leaving corporate to discover my passion, AND pursuing it, was the scariest and easiest decision I have ever made.
The road hasn’t been smooth, however the fear of returning to that old life far outweighs the fear of what untold mysteries lie ahead as I pursue my dream life.
I have NEVER looked back!
No B.S. Wellness is a straight-up, no fuss, no mess, motivational support circle of wellness.
Having spent most of my fitness/wellness years in fluffy gyms or stuck-up studios I knew I would never ever connect with the community. Instead what I found was people who were honest, authentic, unique and genuinely caring were my type of people. The words aren’t always easy to hear, and definitely over the years of training with teachers and instructors that weren’t afraid to hurt my feelings was hard sometimes, but what I found was truth and honest caring. These teachers cared so much, they spoke their truth so authentically, that yes my feelings were hurt because it turns out I had been aligning a yoga pose incorrectly for 4 years or was lifting a weight wrong, but that is when the magic happened. That is when I saw results.
As I have developed my own style I realized the exact same thing I did as a student. Walking into studios that have scripts or a persona that was not my true authentic self was not serving me. Instead, offering a clear, loving and direct teaching is what helped me connect most to my clients. I am not here to blow smoke, I am here to help you heal, learn and grow. I care too much to lie.
