“Find Your Why”
Why do you do the things you don’t want to do and you don’t do the things you want to do? Why do you have the same conversation with the same person and you walk away feeling depleted and rejected? Why do you say yes, when what you want to say is, no? The answer lies deep within your story.
Roll up your sleeves ladies, take your earrings off, and let’s get busy excavating that nasty fear, shame, guilt, and blame narrative that often sits at the base of your story. Ain’t nobody got time for that! I tell you what, catch me outside – it’s time you Find Your Why, set your mission, grab a quest and serve others! Let’s dig in!
