Just as the caterpillar thought the world was over it became a butterfly.
I started my journey in health and wellness 12 years ago when I became a Massage Therapist and later a Reflexologist, providing my community and travelers with healing arts. I built a good clientele but one thing I was missing was taking care of my own health. I had all the components to thrive in providing my services but I overlooked my nutrition. I was overweight and didn't have much energy...consumed coffee non-stop and continually forgot to eat. My body went into starvation mode and as a result, I packed on the pounds.
In 2011, my father passed away and I thought I would never make it without him. In an effort to mask my pain, I began to adopt very unhealthy and destructive habits that put me in a very bad position. A position that could have cost me my life. I saw the light, literally, and conversed with God. I was not ready to go; I promised HIM to love myself and take the upmost care of myself as a whole (body, mind, spirit, soul) as my family needed me now more than ever. Since that day my life has continued to evolve and I look at life with a whole new perspective. I'm loving myself healthy.
