I recently found this picture online and it brought up a lot of feelings and memories for me. The company I used to work for over 3 years ago had a very similar painting in the break room. Every time I came in there to get some coffee, I would see it starring at me in the face with a little text at the bottom that read something like this: "dwell in possibility"... I would literally have an ache in my heart followed by a paralyzing feeling in my body. I'd imagine being by that lake in the nature, feeling healthy and vibrant, living a life with intention, serving and helping people change their lives for the better... then I’d come back to "reality", fill up my cup with stale coffee and go back to my desk to do the mundane activities I was getting a paycheck for.
Allow me to share some of my struggles of that time with you...
I spent many years of my life experiencing insomnia, anxiety, severe adrenal fatigue, hormonal imbalance, and a host of digestive issues. Things got so bad that I was sleeping on average 3 hours a night and having a negative reaction to almost everything I ate. I hit the rock bottom. I made a decision to put myself in charge of my own health and stop relying on the next doctor to give me the "magic pill".
I had worked with some of the most amazing people, but I just couldn't shake off the feeling that I was at the wrong place doing the wrong thing... So, my husband and I made a decision to quit our jobs and travel Europe for 4 months. It was scary not having a job and living it up to the Universe to give me clues and show me the way to move forward with my life. We traveled and spent the needed quality time with our families, enjoyed many journeys and adventures, laughed, and surprisingly really enjoyed the feeling of uncertainty. It was quite liberating actually.
During our travels, I stumbled upon the article about the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and I immediately knew this was the answer to my prayers! Once I got back to the US, I began studying nutrition to become a Certified Holistic Health Coach.
I quickly realized that the root cause of my many symptoms was stress and anxiety so the new chapter in my healing journey began – teacher training to become a Yoga Instructor. I turned inwards and searched for my truth and the missing piece of the puzzle for me was self-acceptance, sense of purpose and meaning in my life. Around that time, doTERRA essential oils came into my life; I began using them aromatically, topically, and internally for a myriad of health benefits. My life and my health started to transform.
In this process of soul-searching, I became a lot more intuitive about my health and about what I really wanted out of life and that intuition and many scary decisions led me to the happiest time of my life.
Today I feel better than I ever did! I have the most fulfilling career, I get to share what I’ve learned along my health journey and empower people to take control of their own life.

I pass by a beautiful lake during my run every morning and it often reminds me the lake from the painting I used to stare at the break room. My heart fills up with joy as I watch a beautiful sunrise over the lake, feel the warmth of the sun on my skin and cool wind in my hair. The decisions I made led me here and nothing I have now is a coincidence. Some people say that I am lucky to have found what I love doing, but it has nothing to do with luck. For me, it took a lot of steps into the unknown and sacrifices to finally get here.
