Because Feeling Good Is Awesome.
I think I was 18 when I bought my first self-help book (From Panic to Power, by Lucinda Bassett-great book by the way), and what I find the most odd is that here I am, in my mid-thirties, and I have not stopped seeking ways to do better, and feel better, and eat healthier, etc. I recently realized this path to wellness has no end, and that is a good thing, because what would happen after we reached that goal?
As human beings, as women, I believe that starting on a path that will challenge you to reach a goal, is as healthy as eating a bowl of kale, or drinking a glass of Pinot Noir (my favorite!) And I know how cliche this sounds, and I have definitely read about this concept in many of the numerous books and/or podcasts I have delved into…but I finally feel it. And feeling it yourself is so much better than reading about someone else telling you.
A little bit about me: Like I said, I am 35, not married, no kids, but I have a wonderful boyfriend who I live with (you betcha I’m waiting on that ring!), and an adorable sweet dog. My background is in counseling, and I also have a certification in transformational nutrition. But I am not here acting in any of those realms specifically, nor is this a ploy to ask for money or attract clients, I PROMISE. I am just here as a fellow woman of the world, finding my way, and looking to connect my two passions for seeking happiness and health.
Why Wellness Chick?
The journey to feeling good, inside and out, is difficult, and much easier said than done. I am still on the path to this idea of holistic wellness (whole body wellness–mind, body and spirit). I am not a perfect human, I have made many mistakes in my life, as we all have. We’re all on our own unique journey, full of ups and downs, after all, that IS the human experience.
What makes everything just a little bit easier is the idea of knowing we are not alone… and that there are women out there struggling with the same stuff…confidence, friendships, marriages, boyfriends, babies, careers, (or lack thereof of ANY of the above), body struggles, or just generally feeling lost, the list goes on and on and on! The point is, I think that a community of women to lift each other up, hear our struggles and not judge one another is half of the battle. Let’s face it, it is HARD to be a chick. We have so many pressures on ourselves, half coming from the outside world, but a LOT coming from within ourselves.
So in a nutshell, I am going to use this site as a platform to share my on-going journey to feeling awesome.
I want to talk about different experiences, strategies, products, foods, recipes, workout routines, anything and everything in this gigantic world of wellness! My hope is that in doing so, I will be able to connect with some women out there on a similar journey. There is no limit. So cheers to hopefully connecting with many of you and building a strong community of women looking to find whatever it is that lights us up and makes us feel great.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
