24 Mar For most of my life… (a personal story)
For most of my life, I’ve been focused on fitting in.
Even writing these words out makes me cringe a little.
It wasn’t a conscious decision.
More of a learned behaviour.
A penchant for trying to say and do the ‘right’ things.
Classic people pleaser.
Running my first business in my 20’s and subsequently working for others over the past 6 years, I realized that I had been hiding behind the scenes for too long.
In my own business between 2009-2016, I found my voice. I stood up. I took the lead.
But then shi*t happened. My brother died, my boyfriend cheated on me, I got taken to the cleaners financially, my business took a huge hit, I made some poor decisions and my confidence got shattered.
Then, I was afraid of being seen for who I truly was because I felt like I had failed.
This was not how the story was supposed to end.
I had expectations of myself and how my life was ‘supposed’ to go. But deep down, all I wanted was to be loved and accepted for my authentic self.
I know I’m not alone in this desire for deep connection and acceptance.
As purpose-driven women seeking to be our true selves, we often feel pressure to fit into a certain mold.
But I’m here to say that now, I refuse to fit into a box, and neither should you.
My true me? I’m a total weirdo, with high expectations and a deep spiritual connection to Source.
I love dancing by myself in the kitchen with the music up loud, and I’m obsessed with emoji’s and quotes that allow me to bring my playful side. 💗😍🥳
I’m a too-much kinda girl, a free spirit, who loves dress-up parties and classy champagne. 🥂
I’m a recovering people pleaser and a freedom seeker.
I believe in miracles, and magic and I believe that anything is possible.
I’m a lifelong learner and I’m addicted to making the world a better place.
I still make mistakes, say the wrong thing, act before I think. I’m human. Lol.
And guess what? If that’s not your jam… I. Just. Don’t. Care. 💥
I’m not here to please everyone. (I FINALLY can say that out loud!).
I’m here to work with, flow with, grow with, coach with, play with other sparkly, beautiful, magical, unique life-lovers. I don’t have to fit into anyone else’s box – and nor do you.
You’re meant to live the life of your wildest dreams, whatever that may look like. So do it.
My wildest dream now has me living on an off-grid, lifestyle property by myself in the middle of nowhere, with 10 chickens and my puppy while I focus on rebuilding my business. I love this new me. This new life I’m creating for myself.
My new favourite outfit is a pretty dress and gumboots. I’m showing up for my Lives, and video calls and training my clients as one part of me, and for the land and the chickens as the other part.
I’m tending to the land and I’m helping my clients. I’m learning from my coach and I’m learning how to plant a garden. I’m using organic social media strategies in my business and I’m showing others how to do the same.
Is it easy to follow our dreams? Hell no!! But is it worth taking the first step, and then the next? Hell yes! 💥
Am I learning from my past mistakes and failures and applying them into my new way of doing business and life? Hell yes! 💥
I’m on a mission to create a world where purpose-driven women are empowered enough to believe that anything is possible, and I invite you to come along with me on this journey.
Let’s make some magic together! (And if this is not your thing, or I’m too much for you, go hit the unsubscribe button because I really don’t care what you think of me!).
And if you’re still reading this. I love that you are here for it! 💗😊💗
What’s one thing YOU are choosing to no longer care about? Let’s celebrate the heck out of that!! 💗😍🥳
Love Catherine 💗
