COACHED BY JESS
I was lucky to find my path very early on in life. I was an Actress, and I remember the “Aha” moment very clearly. I was maybe 5, watching one of the many iconic “Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley” movies and It was then that I just knew that that was EXACTLY what I needed to do with my life.
But surprise, life is HARD, and the path isn’t always linear…
I first learned this in elementary school when my classmates bullied me relentlessly for being the weird ADD theater kid - So I auditioned and got accepted as a Drama Major at a well regarded Arts High School
Then in Highschool I was told by my teachers that I shouldn't take academic classes because my learning difficulties would make it too difficult for me - But I trusted my gut, believed in myself, took all Academic courses and got early acceptance into my first choice University. In some weird comedic irony I decided to go to college in the end. It had a better program.
Graduated from the prestigious George Brown Classical Theater Conservatory - Top of my performance ability…
And then I quit actting...it was terrifying
What most people didn't know at this time was that while I was in my second year of college I suffered a traumatic event that left me feeling immensely overwhelmed. Within that same year, my parents announced they were getting a divorce.
My whole world felt like it had been flipped on its head.
My fully aligned path had now been derailed and I felt completely and utterly lost.
I did A LOT of therapy to work through both traumas but even at the end of all the healing…I didn't feel like the same person.
I felt like my identity was now split into two different people. Me before my trauma, and me after
At the age of 21 I started from scratch. I had no idea who I was anymore. I felt goalless, purposeless, and I had absolutely no idea what I was gonna do with the rest of my life.
The only thing I knew for sure was that If I was going to be waitressing for survival while I figured it out, I might as well do it somewhere cool. So, I started traveling.
I travelled for 4.5 years on and off…2 years straight at one point and the adventure in the end turned out to be my greatest medicine. I made amazing connections around the world, experienced different cultures and was immersed in my soul, with only my voice to listen to, living everyday in the present. When I returned home I was deeply madly in love with myself.
Travel taught me how to trust myself.
To trust those gut instincts.
Questions were asked of me every. Single. Day. Far away from the inputs and opinions of others.
What do I want to do?
What interests me?
What kind of people do I want to surround myself with?
Where do I wish to invest my time and money?
What do I need to do to get where I want to go?
When we love ourselves, we are more likely to hear and listen to that little voice in our head, in our gut, in our heart that is screaming at us HELL YES or HELL NO.
Solo Travel changed my life
This love for myself is a caIm appreciation for the person I am today. Win or Fail.
It's self-compassion and appreciation.
It doesn't compare its value to others. It isn't based on the views or opinions of strangers nor does it live in a hierarchy.
This love is a level of confidence wherein even in the most difficult of situations I see myself as worthy and capable.
It is completely and totally unconditional.
Self-love opened up all the doors for me. When I got aligned with who I am and what brings me joy and what doesn't…the path started to present itself to me. The goals, the dreams they all started forming.
Travelling was my journey, and lucky for you, My Diploma in Life Coaching has given me the language and tools to bring that same transformation to you, from the comfort of your home.
