For as long as I can remember I have loved keeping fit, active and healthy. I confess my ‘vision of health’ as a 20 something was somewhat different to what it is now, however it took years of life experience to find the true value of maintaining optimal health.
In my late 30’s I experienced Chronic Fatigue Syndrome which was the catalyst for me to pull apart and recondition every aspect of my life. It was my first major lesson that life isn’t always cruisy and being ‘healthy’ was more than just smashing it out on the sports field.
Whilst dealing with the effects of chronic fatigue I was unable to play my beloved sport or socialise like I used to, so I directed what energy I had onto my work. However, I became too career focused, completely immersing myself in my work. It wasn’t long before I lost my identity, became disconnected from my values and experienced extreme stress and burnout.
It took many, many years and many, many life lessons, but I soon took the hint from the Universe and began to trust my instincts. After what I can only describe as a giant ‘shove’ in the right direction, I left my safe and secure corporate role and created Soul Flourish. Fast forward to today and I feel energised, in control of my destiny and I have a genuine passion to help others.
Whether it was a twist of fate or the path the Universe had lined up for me all along, I’m so happy I had the courage to make the change. I find this work fulfilling and continue to be amazed at how I can make a difference. I feel like I have finally found my little spot in the world.
