Why Changing Your Life Is The Best Possible Scenario

Why Changing Your Life Is The Best Possible Scenario

Metamorphosis.

Have you ever stopped and really considered just how amazing the concept of metamorphosis is?

I mean, really?

It’s the process where a caterpillar transforms from a caterpillar into a butterfly or moth.

Both are complete in their own right but the caterpillar can only go so far and a butterfly or moth can only go so far. Together, they create a beautiful journey.

This is a beautiful comparison to think of when you think about big life change.

When you’re someone who has lived life one way for a long time and then an event changes everything for the better and you change to fit into this new version of yourself.

I’ve been on a metamorphosis journey over the past number of years. Perhaps even before I realized I was changing.

I carried my childhood trauma with me everywhere I went and in some ways I still do. It has shaped the person I have become.

For a long time, I used it as a shield to protect me from more bad things (and good things) from happening.

It took me a long time and a lot of heart work to see that my childhood and my shield were like my caterpillar stage. They served a purpose but they could only take me so far.

Over the past few years, I have been in my cocoon transforming into a beautiful butterfly that’s just about ready to spread her wings and share her beauty with the world.

My metamorphosis isn’t near complete yet… let’s be real, I don’t know that it will ever be complete.. but I know that I can take your hand and help you through the ups and downs of healing your heart so that you’re able to truly embrace love for yourself, others and step out to begin shining your light for all to see.

The Rollercoaster STOPPING your Weight loss

The Rollercoaster STOPPING your Weight loss
Have you been trying to drop those excess pounds and struggling to move the needle? 



It’s so frustrating! I have some good news for you though! 



The reason you’re struggling to ditch those pounds could be that you’re riding a roller coaster that’s preventing you from doing so. 

This roller coaster is one that even I didn’t know about until I did a nutrition course module. 



I’m betting that even you don’t know about it but chances are that you are riding it with the majority of the population on a daily basis. 

I’m also betting that right about now you’re thinking “get me off the darn roller coaster”

It’s the blood sugar roller coaster. 



You know, how you wake up in the morning and zombie to the coffee maker to make your jolt of energy for the morning.
Then you make your breakfast and hustle off to work. This is a blood sugar high.



Then about 2 hours later, you find yourself at the coffee pot again to help yourself make it to lunch. This is a blood sugar low. 



By noon, you’re looking for another surge of energy. Then those mid-afternoon sleepy’s set in and hopefully you’re not in a meeting or conference call because your yawns are massive! 



This process is repeated about every 2 hours until you go to bed. 

You do this everyday, day in, day out… until you don’t anymore. 



Until you decide to make a change. 



Until you decide to stop burning sugar and start burning fat. 

If you don’t know how to make that transition, don’t sweat it! 



That’s why the Health Reclamation Mentorship Program was created. It’s a three pillar program that gives you the tools and accountability you need to create the change you desire in your life. Click here to learn more about the program and save your spot.

Is Rising Up Really Worth It?

Is Rising Up Really Worth It?

Crossroads.

They tend to be an interesting place to be… especially if you don’t have a map or you’re in unfamiliar territory.

But that’s where you find yourself.

Life has been tough up to this point, you’ve figured out how to survive but you’ve had the realization that you don’t want to keep living this way. You need to make some changes in order to get the life you desire.

Those changes are out of the normal for you and the people in your circle but you know that they have to happen in order to dig yourself out of the misery.

These changes could mean that your friends and family begin to judge you and question you.

They could mean that you start to look at life from different perspective than anyone you know does.

Which leads you to asking yourself, “is it really worth it?”

Well, if you stop and think about how your life has been to this point and how much better it could be if you actually follow through with these changes that will get you the life you desire then they’re likely worth it.

It all really depends on how strongly you’re committed to your vision. Is the vision you’re holding for your life one that excites you? And by excites, I mean, you’re driven to make it happen.

You may have a fear of making these changes and then the people in your circle begin to drift away.

Let’s just call it… some of them WILL but those that really love you will stick around. Not only will they stay, but they will cheer you on in your journey to the life you desire.

The thing about looking for support outside of yourself is that people tend to mirror what you’re thinking but maybe don’t want to admit. Which is why it’s so important for you to have a vision that you can get excited about.

Why it’s Time to Break the Chains of Generational Childhood Trauma

Why it’s Time to Break the Chains of Generational Childhood Trauma

Generational Childhood Trauma…

It sounds big and bad because it is.

Our society has done a really good job at not talking about it. We just ignore it in the hopes that it goes away.

Which it doesn’t because what you ignore, just continues.

But it’s time to stop ignoring it. It’s time to say enough is enough.

I am on a mission to end generational childhood trauma. Not just in my own family but for millions of families around the world.  I am here to educate and empower because when we know better, we can do better.

Let’s first get really clear on what generational childhood trauma is so that we’re all on the same page.

One way that generational childhood trauma happens is when generation after generation hands their unprocessed trauma down to each new generation through parenting methods, limiting beliefs, behaviours and other interactions. This is done either intentionally or unintentionally.

Kids are smarter than adults often give them credit for. They are very much like little sponges. They are constantly observing how the adults in their lives interact with each other, how they treat themselves, how they speak, etc. and they mirror that behaviour.

Another way that generational childhood trauma happens is through our DNA. Have you ever heard the expression, “your biography creates your biology”?

Unprocessed trauma is stored in your body systems and is manifested in physical health issues when you don’t allow those emotions to be expressed as emotion.

So, what now?

We heal.

When we do the work to empower ourselves, we’re also do the work to empower others. When we say enough is enough, we are breaking the curse of trauma on our families.

Hurt people don’t have to hurt people. They can make a new choice.

The most amazing transformation!

The most amazing transformation!

Let’s talk for a minute about that postpartum body.

It did this amazing thing in creating a tiny human and pushing it into the world and then knew how to heal all while nourishing that tiny human (if you choose to nurse)…

But you, the resident of that body are left to learn how to love that new body again… or at the very least learn how to live with it.

Things are puffy, fluffy or sagging that weren’t before. None of your clothes fit and when you look in the mirror, you don’t really recognize that body.

You think to yourself, “It’s okay, the weight will come off… it did last time.”

You are mindful of what you eat. You find an exercise program that you love…and nothing happens.

Life is busy. The kids need this and that. The house needs to be cleaned. You’re tired.

Saying “yes” to yourself seems selfish so you put it off. You sacrifice yourself for your family but you’re quietly miserable.

You watch a fellow mom friend take charge of her health all while caring for her babies and rocking her business and think “I wish I could do that” but instead of asking what she’s doing, you cheer her on.  

Then, one day, you get up the courage to ask what she’s doing.

She tells you and that sparkle that left your eye, returns. 


You give it a try and are surprised by what happens before your eyes.

5lbs…

10lbs…

the weight is dropping off of you. You have more energy. You can run and play with your kids.

That mirror you once avoided, you find yourself enjoying.

You begin to fall in love with your body. Not because it’s shrinking but because it supports you and feels better when you give it the things it’s been asking for all along.

Sounds amazing, huh?

This has been my journey over the past 4 months (April 2021- July 2021) and now I’m excited to help other mama’s learn how to love their body for the first time in their lives.
