Anyone who really knows me would say that I am generally a happy and peaceful person with a positive outlook on life. It’s my default mode of being, but that doesn’t mean I don’t feel out of sync from time to time, just like everybody else. In fact, thirteen years ago I experienced a life changing event that left me feeling so lost that I wasn’t sure how to move forward.
I didn’t like the slump I was in after the tragedy of my mom’s all-too-early death, but since that moment I’ve found transformation in the healthy lifestyle habits that I teach about as a personal trainer, massage therapist, and health coach.
My family was in California, driving on a day trip to the Pacific Ocean, when a car hit us head on. My Dad’s back was broken, my sister’s ankle was shattered and I witnessed my Mom’s last breath. I miraculously walked away from the car with only a severe concussion but also a broken heart.
Although this is part of my story I choose not to focus on the tragedy of the event. Instead, I made it my life’s work to share how through this experience of grief and growth I gained a new passion in life. You see, before the accident my parents made some positive lifestyle changes. They began eating more whole foods, fewer processed carbs, exercised more, and made self-care a priority. They each lost around 25 pounds and felt profoundly better. As an athlete growing up, playing high school and collegiate volleyball, I encouraged these new habits and participated myself. My Mom’s new interest in yoga, massage, and healthy eating also became mine. It was a wonderful gift she gave me that set me on this path as a healthy lifestyle advocate.
The following years after her death have not been easy, a feeling that anyone who has lost a loved one can relate to. But, the experiences I had with my Mom gave me the tools and curiosity necessary to come out of the grief and move forward with a joyous and positive attitude.
Exercise, quality food, and massage are powerful tools for transforming your mood and body. You can feel empowered to take on the day! This is why my passion as a healthy living advocate is not to live a longer life; it is to improve the quality of each living day for my clients.
