Living Bravely Life Coaching emerged from my personal heartbreak experienced during my own divorce contemplation journey. My mission is to support others on their unique path, guiding them toward solace and self-discovery.
For over five years, I experienced a constant back-and-forth in my commitment to my marriage, swinging between a desire to stay and a growing inclination to seek a divorce. The emotional turmoil left me utterly drained, making it impossible for either choice to feel right. This ongoing struggle took a toll on my well-being, as I found it increasingly challenging to prioritize self-care.
Though I was grateful for the love and care of friends and family, their opinions on whether I should stay or leave only added to my confusion. I knew there were lessons I needed to learn about my marriage and myself within the context of our relationship.
One of the most challenging aspects of this journey was realizing that no one else could make this decision for me. The choice was mine alone to make. I vividly recall a day spent in my craft room, sobbing uncontrollably, repeating to a power greater than myself, "I don't want to go through this! I don't want to go through this!"
Amidst this deep uncertainty, I found solace in rediscovering myself. Through painting, meditation, yoga, and soul-searching hikes, I navigated the emotional storm and sleepless nights. I sought peace in the quiet of a Buddhist temple and the warmth of friendships shared over dinner.
Your journey is uniquely yours, and its twists and turns won't mimic mine. However, I want you to understand that I am here not just as a coach but as a compassionate companion. I've walked a similar path, and I comprehend the courage it takes to step into the unknown. Regardless of where your journey leads, I am here to provide unwavering support, empathy, and understanding every step of the way.
Living Bravely Life Coaching
My business name came to me while reading "Untamed" by Glennon Doyle.
My logo was created with the help of a dear friend. It is a hybrid of a phoenix rising from the ashes and the tree of life. It is the symbolic call for Living Bravely. From the ashes, we rise and bloom again when properly nourished.
In times of doubt and confusion, it symbolizes strength, transformation and renewal. For only from the ashes of who we were, can we rise up to become who we are to be.
