Sleep Victim to Sleep Coach?
My sleep journey has been fraught with insomnia, night terrors, anxiety, obsessive thinking, doctors, therapists, sleep studies, medication and more supplements and gadgets than I’d care to recount. Would you like to hazard a guess at the ONE thing that has made the biggest difference in my relationship with sleep?
Seriously? That’s hard to believe…
I know! And 3 years ago, if you would have told me that not only had I made huge strides in healing MY relationship with sleep, but I would also become a certified life coach helping OTHER people heal THEIR relationships with sleep, I would have said you were dreaming.
How on earth could I be qualified to coach others when MY life has been so less-than-perfect? Turns out my less-than-perfect life WAS the perfect springboard to a career of helping others heal, grow and flourish!
Everything I was ashamed of – every challenge, setback, and disappointment, everything I viewed as a failure was absolutely perfect for me. They made me who I am today and that is one strong, smart, kickass woman. And what makes me an amazing coach is I LOVE to learn and when I have those AHA moments, my first instinct is to share that with others.
So here I am. A life coach. A life coach on a journey to heal my relationship with sleep. And help my clients do the same.
