I researched some more and finally found a doctor that does Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) and decided to make the appointment. I took blood and saliva tests and went in for my consultation. In our meeting, I found out that due to all the stress I was under, my cortisol levels were out of control as well as my hormones being imbalanced. We discussed these issues as well as diet, supplements and an excercise routine. I thought "WOW, something who cares about my whole being, me as a whole and not just interested in giving me a "one-size fits all pill" that will lead to another symptom. I started incorporating everything we discussed slowly and little by little my health started getting better.
However, my battle was only beginning. In the months to follow the stress of my business was more than I could handle. After 10 years, I was done. I knew I had to let it go for myself, and for my family. I also know that if I didnt act and listen to my body, I would of suffered a full blown burn out and things would of gone from bad to worse. ~ for that I am truly thankful.
I finally sold my business and the months to follow have been nothing short of amazing. As each day passed the pain in my neck and shoulders (from stress) slowly subsided and I began to tune into my surroundings. One day in the fall, I was walking on a trail and I looked up and noticed all the leaves dancing in the air. Some were twirling, some were spinning, some were swaying and as I stood there and smiled, one fell right in front of me and I put my hand out and it landed in my palm. A warm grin covered my face as i thought to myself "this is what it is all about."
As the months went on I came across life coaching and thought "I could of really of used someone to listen and help me go through this phase". and then I said "I wonder how many other Mom's are feeling the stress of juggling everything?' so, I decided right there that was what I wanted to do. I signed up with the Robbins/madanes coach training program and set out on my next phase in life and here I am! I am so thankful to be here and am ready to give back and assist those who need someone to listen to their challenges and goals and really gets it. I believe change starts with "You" because after all you to... "YOU" deserve it :)
Blessings and light,
