My name is Kayleigh M., and for 8 years, I dedicated myself to what I thought was my passion: art and textile design. I got a great job in NYC that directly utilized my degree and gave me flexibility outside of work to pursue other hobbies. I had a seemingly enviable life. Secretly, I felt empty, disappointed, uninspired, and checked out.
I felt the pull of staying at a safe job and the fear of “wasting my artistic talent” to pursue my passion of integrative health and wellness. I felt the guilt of giving up stability. I realized that it wasn’t my job that was making me unhappy; it was about the mismatch of how I was relating to my job and not feeling in sync with my own desires and needs.
But letting myself be restricted by guilt and underlying belief that I didn’t deserve to pursue my passions were scarier than trying something new and the possibility of failing. Slowly, I began investing in things that made me feel alive again.
Because I wanted to be proud of my decisions, to trust my intuition, and make empowered choices.
Because I didn’t want to repeat the negative patterns of my past or the patterns of my family.
Because I wanted to follow through on the things I set out to do and live a better life.
I learned to listen to my body and relate to others, my environment, and myself in a healthy and loving way. I learned how to utilize my internal and external resources to support me during any situation. I learned to trust my intuition and inner rhythm and how to live within it. I could feel the difference in my body of being excited to work and feeling light rather than dreading the day and feeling heavy.
Overtime, I recognized what continuously makes me feel inspired and engaged: connecting with and supporting others to feel in-tune, in charge, and inspired in their everyday life.
This is what I am inspired to share with you and continue to live in my own life. I believe we all have the ability to find balance and deserve to cultivate the practices to live a well and thriving life. I believe that connection is the birthplace of strength and resilience and it begins with reconnecting with yourself and your rhythm.
