S.H.I.N.E. TestimonialsVIEW ALL
In my life, I continue to learn each and every day inspired by so many different people. My mother was one of my greatest and most cherished teachers. When she passed away in April of 2011 after a courageous battle with breast cancer, I lost my mentor and guide. She was a source of unconditional love for me and when she died I yearned for that connection that was physically lost. The grief was unbearable. It was not until a good friend encouraged me to find time each day to connect with my mom that I began my journey towards healing from this incredible loss. These thoughts of the day or inspirations are my connections each day with my mom and I am publishing them in a book called The Magical Guide to Bliss out this September 2015 on Amazon. It is a guide I wrote for myself and a soul talk that I would like to have with you all. This has been my journey over the last four years and it continues as I follow the butterflies and bliss!
Soul searching is an ever changing endeavor...as we evolve and continue to blossom, so does your search for that dynamic, ever changing bliss in your life. Mine came in the form of a sweet scold from my then 6-year old son in the summer of 2012 when he heartedly reproached me working too much and not able to really unplug even in the middle of vacation. A couple of months later, my daughter then 4-years old, told me that she wanted me to be her nanny because she wanted to spend as much time with me as she did with their nanny. I got it - something had to change. A year later I quit my corporate job and went back to do what I am really passionate about - real estate. Through the transition, which has been no bed of roses but rather thorns, I have gotten to know my children, gotten to appreciate little thing such as going grocery shopping with 3 little kids and stopping myself short of strangling them or my self for the sake of brevity, or just merely hanging out with them and having a sit-down family dinner more often than the previous once-a-week scheduled dinner. I have had to balance my energy, my patience, my priorities and my vibrations to tune into the wonderful bliss of being a mom. And to think it all started with a vision board exercise...little did I know the power of a vision when you focus in it and calibrate your tuning to a visual motivator.

What an amazing life journey I have had. I have accomplished more than I ever imagined and been so so blessed beyond my comprehension. My passion for life, family, love, laughter, joy, connection, and spirituality has energized me since a child which has given me the power and strength to push through all obstacles, set backs, detours, defeatists and haters. One of Oprah's mantra's is, "Live Your Best Life." I have lived that mantra and continue to strive to do so. Since Oprah's 2014 Miami Life You Want Weekend, I have focused on enhancing my inner peace and quieting my mind, and, as well, sharing with others my journey to uplift them so they can gain strength to reclaim their power. I so desire to be less overwhelmed, less stressful, and less tired, that this year's life journey has involved connections with persons seeking the same and the incorporation of healthier eating, yoga, and meditation. I have also freed my life of persons who do not enhance me, including certain family members. Gratitude is my daily attitude and I know God is in control. I have so long known that life is a gift that cannot be done over. So I live every day to "S.H.I.N.E."
Synchronicity was a word I had never heard before until about 3 years ago I had it happen right before my eyes and every day since. Little did I know that word would change my entire focus on life. Synchronicity is the simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernible casual connection. About 3 years ago I landed an internship at Homeland security for the summer. For most it was a dream come true, as for me It was a nightmare being forced by my parents to take this job because this opportunity would “open doors” for me. All I knew is that it had wrecked my summer plans. I did everything in my ability not to get this internship but life had other plans for me. Once there I met a very good friend and Mentor who believed that we find magic in the connections as the mystery of life and that we should always follow our bliss. She has been by my side guiding me every step of the way and has believed in me even on the days that I don’t. I decided to follow my bliss and chose a career path where I could guide and inspire others. I am now a Certified Health Coach guiding people every day to take small steps to improving their health, happiness and how to create balance in all the areas of their lives. I teach them how to be the BEST version of themselves and kick ass while doing it. As life would have it we now work together on this beautiful project that we would love to share with all of you.
