“You either walk inside your story and own it or you stand outside your story
and hustle for your worthiness.” - Brené Brown
Becoming an empowered sensitive person has been the greatest challenge in my life. I know this deeply because I have had to do it twice. The first time was in the years leading up to writing and publishing my book Empowering the Sensitive Soul. This was a time of great joy, growth, and positivity for me. I finally felt free of the health issues, low self-confidence and extreme anxiety that had plagued me my whole life. I had learned to love and accept myself and to stand in my power as a highly sensitive person. I was finally at my goal and I didn’t see anything stopping me in the future. I was on top of the world.
Unexpected Life Storm
Seeking to fulfill a life-long dream of tropical living, I moved over 1000 miles away from my friends and family and gave up the clients and community I had worked so hard to build. I was then perpetually exposed to mold and construction dust in our new home, suffered with a toxic work environment and family stresses, and found my strength quickly degrading. After following extremely negligent medical advice and becoming totally overwhelmed from a last-minute road trip to escape a hurricane, my sensitive body decided this was all too much to handle and my nervous system went into total chaos.
