“Woman is not born: she is made. In the making, her humanity is destroyed. She becomes symbol of this, symbol of that: mother of the earth, slut of the universe; but she never becomes herself because it is forbidden for her to do so.” ― Andrea Dworkin
Hey there, I’m Misty,
Does it feel difficult to find your true self as a woman because of all the hats you wear: wife, mother, executive, caregiver…
Do you remember when growing up the things taught to you as a young woman?
Do any of these sound familiar:
- stay slim or no one will want you
- be successful
- keep a clean house
- be a good and attentive mother
- get married and keep your husband satisfied
- you’re the caregiver when I get old
The list goes on…
Any sound familiar?
Living life with these beliefs is too much. Throwing in the towel and starting over seems easier.
My friend, I’ve done that! It doesn’t work.
Let’s have story time…
I’m in my mid-20s in a committed relationship, starting my career and taking on responsibility. I am unstoppable. Life is great! Then pressure on all fronts starts to build. Expectations grow. Conflicts at work with co-workers are impacting me. Harassment begins from an employer. Caring for a sick parent is necessary. And trying to nurture a relationship with no free time as I work crazy hours and network and socialize.
I’M MAXED OUT!
Emotionally and physically I BROKE.
I couldn’t believe this was what life was meant to be.
I didn’t know who I was anymore or even what I wanted. I felt pulled in so many directions, I came apart at the seams.
Sounding even a bit familiar?
So what did I do? I sabotaged my life, quit my job and ran off to Florida to live and work as a waitress.
Self-sabotage was my middle name. It was way easier to blow my life up and start again then face into the underlying issue.
I lasted 6 months in Florida realizing it was time to start again.
I returned home.
GUESS WHAT????? The pattern repeated itself…surprise surprise.
What the heck does that mean?
Well, I restarted my career, became successful, got married and guess what the pressures mounted again!
This time I didn’t run. I pushed through. I felt an ever-growing void and found more and more distractions. I filled the void with alcohol, shopping and some INTERESTING choices.
I could not outrun the underlying issues again and my physical body finally said STOP.
BOOM (mic drop) diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in my 30s. I had no choice but to STOP. Took sick leave and turned inward.
Ever feel like you are repeating a pattern that seems unbreakable and is not serving you?
What did I finally learn?
INNER CONNECTION is where it’s at ladies!
This is sacred space inside of you to access healing, growth and nurturing your wounded & tired soul.
Tapping into your soul shows YOU the world of possibilities and spaciousness in YOUR life.
This is the place you can’t hide behind excuses or old beliefs. It’s a place of creation and love.
Do you hold the belief taking care of yourself first is selfish?
I’m here to tell you HELL NO!
What if I told you REST is the BEST MEDICINE?
Shaking your head in disbelief? Do you use the mantra…I will rest when I’m dead!
Do you carry stress like a badge of honour because that is what society tells you makes you productive woman?
F**(K that I say!
You may be asking how the heck is she the person to help me when she has some crazy ideas?
Well, I’ve been there my friend. I’ve tried running away, I’ve tried hiding behind busyness and distraction. And I still felt empty and didn’t know who the heck I was. I had a knowing there was more and found the way to it.
