Reclaiming my health changed my life

Reclaiming my health changed my life

Reclaiming your Health isn’t as challenging as it might seem

I’ve been feeling very reflective lately with one chapter of my life ending and another just beginning.

7.5 years ago, I made the bold move to leave the large majority of my family and move 5600km away to a place where I knew no one but the opportunities for work where greater.

At that point, I thought that work was the reason for this move. However, now I know that it was so much more than that.

It was an adventure in reclaiming my health and coming into my own.


When I moved, I was 24 but my health was more like someone in their mid-40’s. I was on stomach medication, birth control to regulate my cycle, inhalers to control my asthma and I felt awful a large majority of the time.

I believed that when I had something wrong with me that I needed to go to the doctor because they could fix it.

Over the course of the last 7 years, my view has shifted. I no longer hold western medical doctors as 100% the only medical professional one requires. This view has been formed from my own experience of doctor’s dismissing me, the real expert on my body (which doesn’t always function in the textbook definition). Instead, I see western medical doctors as 1 piece of the health picture.

I have learned a lot about how my physical health has been determined by my mental and emotional health. The human body has been designed in a very complex and genius way in that all the systems are interconnected and more often than not, it’s not a straightforward answer.

I’ve learned that there are no quick fixes. There are bandaids but they don’t solve the problem and will likely result in something else going haywire in an attempt to get you to listen. 

All of this to say, it has been an amazing adventure to date and part of the reason why I have certified as the health and life coach.

#1 Lesson from 2020: Part 1

#1 Lesson from 2020: Part 1
Owning this life— body, mind & Pinterest… this has become my new mantra..but what does that even mean?!?

Well, I’ve been on this amazing journey this year. I’ve been learning a ton and growing even more! 



I think we can all agree that 2020 has forced us to open our eyes. We have no longer been able to be distracted by all the busy that life can give us… and I have to admit that for me, personally, it has been really easy to bury my head in the busy of life rather than dealing with the hard stuff over the year. 



Do you know what happens when we do that… or at least what happened to me?

I pushed all the hard stuff down and I built a very, VERY high wall around me emotionally… that didn’t do any favours for me either. I went from this happy go lucky 5 year old to this closed off and depressed 14 year old and I stayed that closed off and depressed person for WAY TO LONG! Let’s say like, something handy to 15 years... 




But what happens when you don’t deal with the emotional stuff?!?

It comes out somehow...

If dealing with feelings as feelings isn’t going to happen, they’re going to come out as physical issues… Yeah, you read that right but we’ll get into that next time! 



2020 has given me SO MUCH time and the resources to process those emotional things so that I could start to break down the wall I had constructed around my heart. 



Friend, I’ve discovered that when my mind is right then a lot of other things just fall into place. 



Check this out… Those pictures below tell a story. 


The one on the left is me at the beginning of my journey. I was frustrated, depressed, and fed up. I knew what I wanted but I didn’t have a clue where to start. The one on the right is me just a couple of hours ago. I am full of joy and I have a clear purpose in my life. 



I’ll share more about this lesson in future blogs but for now, if you’re ready to own your life body, mind and Pinterest.. come check out my free community
