20th Nov, 2023
I’m so excited to share this conversation with my guest today as it truly was one of my favorites. I think we all have experienced that time in life when it seems like the whole world is crashing down on us. You know that saying, when it rains, it pours. It’s those moments in time when everything seems to be going wrong. My guest today shares exactly that and why all of it needed to happen for her to truly wake up to the reality that the direction she was going wasn’t sustainable anymore. How many of you can relate to that? I know for myself I’ve had these moments and now that I’m on the other side, I’m thankful for it.
In this episode you will learn that there is beauty in your journey…even during the hardest of times, because through it all it will serve you lessons you needed to learn and you will discover there was purpose in your pain. Today is your permission to reclaim your joy and remember who you are.
