Girl, You’re Amazing!

‘Girl, you’re amazing, just the way you are’ is playing softly in the background at Motherland Coffee.

I’m dedicating Bruno Mars’ song to you today. Because, truly, you are remarkable.

Every perceived flaw, every scar, every bit of baggage— they all contribute to the intricate beauty that is you.

What a gift our scars are – scars created from the shards of trauma which serve as remembrances, not of our wounds, but of our resilience, our strength, and the depth of our capacity to love.

Then there comes a time when we must release what no longer aligns with the person we are becoming.

I know how easy it is to get wrapped up in ‘life’ – all of the dramas, stressors, conditioning of obligation, and the weight of others’ expectations – that make you lose sight of your own brilliance.

“Imagine what it takes to override a lifetime of programming – all your habitual thoughts, feelings, and behaviours – and set about the chain reaction that’s liberating old energy. That’s a big moment.” Dr Joe Dispenza

In everything I do – my coaching, YouTube channel, this newsletter, keynote talks and workshops, I aim to reflect your magic back to you so that you can show up as the incredible, and infinite being that you are.

While our 31-day Mental Health Hacks series has concluded, the episodes remain on my YouTube Channel as daily doses of inspiration and insight. Perhaps watching just one hack a day could spark a shift within you.

And then there’s this idea which I’d love your feedback on!

For the first three individuals who raise their hands, whether we’ve crossed paths in a coaching capacity or not, I want to offer you a transformative opportunity similar to that of one of my beautiful clients.

“That was so freakin huge. I have caught myself rubbing my hands together like an excited kid. I’m super excited to see where this takes me. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!”

Together, we’ll embark on a personal coaching session, recorded and shared as an empowering case study on my upcoming podcast, with your comfort and privacy respected.

Mel Robbins’ Audible series called, ‘Work It Out’ inspired this idea – where career coaching intersects with personal narrative, to navigate your journey towards the life and career you dream of – and deserve.

Making decisions becomes easy when you’re clear on your Values, your Purpose, Your Vision and the Impact you want to create.

So, if you’re curious, and interested in co-creating this with me, let me know soonest. There are only 3 sessions available 😊

Here’s to truly living freely, with more ease, joy and possibilities!

Never forget the magic that you are. You are loved. You are supported. You are worth it!

With love from your biggest cheerleader,
