Prior to this moment, I didn’t realise anything was particularly wrong. In fact, I was living the high life on French champagne, designer clothes and travelling internationally co-managing the Australian arm of a global business. I thought I was happy. Gosh, I was wrong!
What I didn’t realise was that my identity and worth was so defined by what others thought of me, my business title, my appearance and what I did as a career that when I left, I found myself asking…
“Who am I, really?”
With no high flying career to tell me I was valuable. No A list parties that meant I was important.
No job title, wealth, social status or network to validate my worth at all. Nil. Zip. Nada!
And this is when I hit rock bottom.
Although I was ready to leave my previous career – I wasn’t prepared for how small I would feel. Here I was, almost 30, and I should have it all together yet I was jobless, almost broke and had no idea what I wanted to do.
This marked the beginning of an intense two-year journey of self-discovery.
I let go of what everyone else told me my life should look like, dove deep into my spiritual practice and learned how to listen to my inner guide to make all of my decisions. Inviting in this divine intelligence (which we all have access) and trusting the one who gives this has been the most powerful transformation I’ve ever experienced. I learned to trust the woman I was destined to be and began living from this place.
I studied everything I could on the mind, emotions, a woman’s worth (because we all now know I had none!) in order to lift me out of this funk.
Suddenly people’s opinions mattered less and I no longer found myself stuck in irrational thinking. I had a handle on my emotions and felt in control of who I was. I no longer looked in the mirror with disgust, treated myself horribly or beat myself up for my past mistakes and failures. The binge eating/calorie restriction cycle which I had carried with me since I was 16 (yes, 16. That was 12 years!) ceased as I healed my unhealthy self-image.
I watched in awe as my relationships (and now marriage) blossomed, my business skyrocketed and my wealth increased. Old beliefs and limitations melted away and I began to experience immense joy, gratitude and peace in everyday life.
I finally reached the place where I wholeheartedly loved, appreciated and accepted who I was as a woman.
If I can go from where I was to where I am today, you can too!
Because true feminine excellence is defined by your inner qualities
and not by your social standing, wealth or appearance.
