Survival is something I know well. We are very familiar with each other.
Growing up in a small house with eight siblings is a good example. We loved each other, yet it felt like survival mode most of the time. My dad worked overtime yet it was never enough to pay the bills. The tension was palpable and survival mode was in full swing. Especially with one bathroom...it seemed that the way things are is the way things are.
Let’s use these common terms to elaborate the concept, shall we?
How often have you heard or said:
“...just to get by...”
“...do what I have to do...”
“...it could always be worse...”
But what if it could be
I survived. But I wanted to thrive.
I moved out of my parent’s house at 17.
I moved away from my hometown at 22.
I lost 75 pounds at 23, and have kept it off since.
I bought a business at 25 and successfully sold it at 28.
I got a promotion managing a team of 19 people at 29.
I self-published my book at 34.
I started a new business at 35.
For a while, I was fixated on leveling up to prove to myself that I was no longer surviving like the child on welfare. But my mind was still a prison to my scarcity because it was the story I had known, so it was the story I unintentionally created.
When I moved out on my own, I still felt trapped.
When I left town, I still felt restless.
When I lost weight, I still found new ways to hate my body.
When I got my promotion, I still felt unfulfilled.
Doing the dirty work was going to be a process. I dug in, healed myself, and found that creation flowed out of me effortlessly. I had to break free from the comfort zone of surviving that I had known for so long.
And shortly after, I wrote my book.
I changed my life.
When we are existing in survival mode, there is no room for creation. If you are being chased by a bear, you’re not thinking about creation. You’re thinking about what you need to do to not die.
Creation comes from expansion and ease. Creation flows when you are in the flow.
Creativity Coaching is my flow. I fiercely believe that we are all creative, whether we like it or not. You create your mood, your outfit, your home, your coffee, your meals…
What if you could create with intention?
If you are a creative, I am honored to help you find more depth and success in your business.
If you think you are not a creative, I am honored to prove you wrong.
Join me for my one-month intensive, catered to your needs and goals. We will start with an email questionnaire to build the groundwork for our journey together.
Our first call is the most fun! We will set goals for you based on your questionnaire feedback as well as our initial conversation.
We will then meet weekly for one on one calls, structured lightly to allow for candid conversation with guided visualizations.
You will have access to me via email or the Marco Polo for on-demand support in between.
I pride myself on my intuition, and my willingness to be vulnerable. I am gentle yet I will hold you accountable with objective observation and experience. I will hold space for you and all of your needs while cultivating your creativity and teaching you how to hold the same space.
“To be someone you’ve never been, you have to be someone you’ve never been.”
