I have acquired many roles along my life journey. Yet mostly I am traveling on my own Womanly Journey in order to live the most authentic life possible. In doing so I have found a common thread in all of my roles; The desire to empower.
In college, my course of study was occupational therapy. Increasing independence through activity is the underlying goal of OT. I found through my years of practice I enjoyed having a hand in returning people to their independent selves. My patients recognized they had within them what was needed to heal; I was simply a facilitator in their journey.
Looking closer at moments in my life when I feel I am at my best, my core purpose comes into focus. Witnessing the moment when a person connects with their greatness and sees that they are a wonderful person as they are, simply warms my soul. I am honored when given the opportunity to play a small part in raising the well being in others.
Along my journey, I noticed many women, including myself, suffer from low esteem, negative self talk, self-defeating behaviors, poor choices, anxiety and depression, to name a few. I decided to take steps in order to return to my true self.
This is where the authentic blogging with a bracelet come in. I quit my life as I previously designed it in order to find my authentic life. This empowered blog brings you along this journey with me. I write to connect with others. There may be something in my writing that resonates with you. Comments are encouraged as we are on this life journey together. The bracelet is a bonus. It is an external reminder to love your self completely as you are right now on this journey!
I invite you to join me on this journey! The better we feel about ourselves the greater the impact is on everyone we interact with.
