In late 2016, I decided I was tired of living my life feeling like a victim of uncontrollable circumstances, and I would need to do a full reset again. But first, I had to figure out what made me tick again. What were my passions? What did I want to do versus what others expected me to do? And most importantly, I had to get my health in order and take time to practice self-care.
Over the next few months, I went through a major lifestyle change which required me to drink a gallon or more of water, eat protein packed meals, and exercise 4-5 times a week. It resulted in a significant change in my mood, energy and productivity. I also learned a lot about nutrition and health and removed a lot of things from my diet that triggered the diseases that ran in my family history.
I also competed in a NPC bikini fitness competition and ended up bringing home two trophies. Not only did I prove I could do anything I put my mind to, I walked away a better, healthier version of myself with a renewed sense of clarity.
It made me realize that when you continue to pursue your passions and things that you enjoy, you don’t have to chase purpose.
Purpose will find you.
As a result of spending more time loving myself a little more, creating balance in my life and chasing my passions, I became a better business woman. And it was then that I knew that my purpose was to continue to share my story and help other career-oriented women to become the best versions of themselves.
