Do you want to know where I started? I started with one excellent choice and then I made one more excellent choice. Then I came up with an idea. Then I came up with another idea. Then I got discouraged and I failed. Then I was inspired by other empowering woman all over the world telling their stories. Then I had more ideas and I gave up on them before I even started. I was so afraid of failure that I didn’t even try. I was so afraid of being unsuccessful and rejected that my great ideas stayed just that…Ideas. I’m ready to share my great ideas with you…bold beautiful empowering woman around the world. I have been inspired by so many strong, confident and beautiful women in my life that I hope I can do that for at least one other person. Every person has a unique story to tell. I am going to tell you my unique story. I am going to share my great ideas with you because I’m sick of living in fear. One of my biggest dreams was to write a book. So here it is. This is MY book. My Soul Compass.
I am a storm. At first I am calm, shy, fascinating, you get to know me, then the wind starts to pick up I’m feisty and stubborn. Then you dig real deep and the storm hits. You think I’m a little bit crazy but you love me anyways. Who doesn’t love a good storm? I come into your life calmly and as you get to know me better you will realize. I am a shit storm. I struggle everyday with severe anxiety. It’s the hardest battle I have ever had to fight. I love even more fiercely than I fight. On my journey to self-care I came up with one of my great ideas. The difference was that this idea was going to be one that changed everything for me. This idea is the one I am going to share with the world. Every day I think of ways that I can be the best version of myself. The woman that I want my daughter to aspire to be. My worst fear is that I am going to push my anxiety on to her. I keep coming back to the idea of feeding my soul. Giving my soul what I have always known it’s needed. That’s how my baby was born, The SOUL COMPASS. I am going to take you on the journey of MY soul compass and teach you how to find yours.
When you look at compass you see North, East, South, and West. When you use a compass each direction pulls you to where you need to go. Your Soul is no different than a map. You need to take care of your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. No matter how you use the Soul compass each piece works together to take you where you need to go. North is your physical journey. You start at your physical journey because your physical health is related to all other aspects and is the easiest one to change. East is your mental health which is directly related to your physical health. South is spiritual wellbeing and west is your emotional well-being. Each part of your compass is directly related to the other. The compass doesn’t function without one or the other. It functions as one. When you take care of each part of yourself you will find your soul compass.
