I just want to take a moment to re-introduce myself. I am an entrepreneur, a certified holistic nutrition and natural health practitioner, motivational speaker, life coach, and raw vegan lifestyle advocate for health, the animals, and the planet.
I believe that a world of peace and love, begins with being kind and compassionate to ALL living beings and the environment in which we live. We can’t expect to live in a world of non-violence, peace, and love if we are not practicing these characteristics ourselves day in and day out. Take some time to ponder on that.
I’m not a fan of video BUT I am going to make it a point moving forward to use this platform to bring you inspiration, motivation, empowerment, and badassery! I say badassery because it takes moxie and a badass to face any challenge, any obstacle, to get beat down, hit rock bottom, overcome it all, then, turn around and rise above with resilience, authenticity, class, confidence, and respect.
I consider myself to be one of those women and believe there is a badass inside each and every one of us. It’s not a bad thing. It’s a great thing, because after all, if we don’t pull ourselves out from beneath the rubble, who’s going to do it for us? No one. It’s up to us to find our own strength and power from within so that we can overcome any obstacle that comes our way, making us stronger each time while building up our self-confidence.
I started Raw & Alive in 2015 posting all kinds of food pictures making it all about food and nutrition. To be honest, since then, I’ve been struggling with direction and a shift that has been wanting to take place but hasn’t because of my own resistance. Really, just finding myself stuck at a crossroad.
So, I decided to let go of that resistance and dive into what I am even more passionate about and that is inspiring, motivating, and empowering women to break through their fears in speaking their truth, allowing their voice to be heard and becoming the best version of themselves while creating a life they love in the process. It’s what I have lived, what I have overcome and what I know you too can do.
Although, one of my passions is health and nutrition, it alone isn’t what brings me optimal joy. It goes beyond that into life experiences and overcoming adversity with strength and resilience. It’s understanding and going deeper into the psychology of the mind, body, and spirit and how it all comes together to make us whole so that we can truly live a life fulfilled. Don’t get me wrong, that doesn’t mean I will no longer share my raw vegan lifestyle with you, that’s a big part of what has brought me here today so you will definitely continue to see those type of posts, it just won’t be my sole focus.
I will be focusing more on sharing my life journey from a motivational standpoint, how I overcame my obstacles as a single parent, rising above it all, and targeting the overall well-being of our children. After all, it’s what has made me who I am today.
I truly believe, having a child myself, teaching, inspiring and instilling health and wellness in children from the beginning is what will lead them to create a better life and future for themselves and the world around us. Children are our future leaders and our future lies in their hands. So, we must teach them well and let them lead the way beginning with the example we set forth as we guide them in paving the way.
So, if you’re interested in becoming inspired, getting motivated and empowering your soul, stick around and learn why and how I turned my lows into highs while helping you do the same, as I continue moving forward in this journey we call life!
