My name is Amy. I used to drink 4-5 cans of Diet Coke a day. I subsisted on KD and hot dogs growing up, and I’m pretty sure salad never saw the inside of our house. It’s pretty miraculous that I’m even alive. I spent the first 23 years of my life having absolutely no idea that the foods I was eating affected the way I felt. In 2005 I became a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and never drank a Diet Coke again.
From the outside, I had it made.
By Christmas 2013, my husband and I had 2 little boys and another on the way. Life was good, but I knew something was wrong. By January 2014 it slapped me in the face. My relationship was over and I was 7 months pregnant with our 3rd child. I was devastated. But even though my world had disintegrated, my spirit thrived. I had been betrayed by the person closest to me, and I felt like I was dying inside. Yet at the same time, I had never felt more alive. I had this deep knowing that I wasn’t alone. I was being guided by something much greater.
I had been neglecting my spirit for so long that it was screaming for help.
I didn’t waste a single moment before I stepped into my power overnight it seemed. I knew that I would have an amazing life no matter what – because I am the creator of my reality and I make the rules. Why didn’t it click before? I wasn’t ready to listen before. I read every relationship saving book I could get my hands on, but I knew it was over. He was done. Yet, I had an overwhelming knowing that we had a strong foundation and that we would make it.
I focused on being happy and let go of my relationship to the powers that be. I worked on my spiritual connection, went inward, and did the inner work every single day. I listened to my intuition and followed my bliss. In time, not only did I find a deep love for myself but I materialized the most magnificent, loving, and fulfilling relationship – with my husband. Because of my inner work, I have 3 happy kids to go along with my now happy marriage. I am full of love, energy, and excitement, and I wake up full of “This is the best day yet. Something amazingly awesome is going to happen today!”
I want to inspire you to love more, to connect, to have better relationships with yourself and others. I want you to realize that you’re worth anything and everything you desire and that you can catch your dreams simply by doing something every day that moves you closer to them. It doesn’t matter where you are right now. Life on the other side of whatever you are going through is going to be really, really beautiful, but you’ve got some work to do first. Don’t worry, it’s the most amazing journey you will ever go on, and it’s so incredibly worth it!
