If you believe that some people are lucky… then I believe you may be missing out on a whole lot of goodness in your life. My Dad taught me that you create your own luck and this belief has served me well. If you are not living the life of your dreams, have you ever stopped to wonder why? What is stopping you? Imagine if you could turn it all around? Do work that you love? Love yourself, enjoy the moment, let go of worry, create, enjoy, be grateful?
I have been blessed with a wonderful life and my heart is full of gratitude for every single moment. An epic child hood, 2 awesome parents, 3 cool siblings who I consider friends, 11 years with my soul mate and an undeniably wondrous upbringing full of conversation, encouragement and love. I now live in Melbourne with my 2 girls Sienna and Stella and my gorgeous husband Sean. I can truly say I am living the life of my dream. I have hacked my mindset and now work from home running 3 businesses that make my heart sing. A baby shoe business, Sienna Baby, my consulting business The Wonder Tribe and my Crystal Healing business, Crystal Baby.
However, It hasn’t always been full of wonder. Like 1/3 of women in Australia, in my early 20s I suffered anxiety and burnout which eventually landed me in hospital with stroke symptoms and a foggy diagnosis (suspected transient ischemic attack… also known as a mini stroke). Lying in the MIR machine wondering what the hell was wrong with me, I made a promise to myself: I was going to conquer the dizzy breathlessness, the anxiety, the incessant worry, the over thinking and negativity and I was going to unlock my true potential.
I embarked upon a wellness journey that changed the way that I think and changed the way that I live. I became a qualified hypnotherapist, began meditating every day, I learnt about my mind, I changed the way that I worked and tuned into my purpose. I fell in love with myself and with my life. I started creating my dream life and I’m still living it today.
My very good friend Kirsty Lovell (who is a mad boss gal and awesome book recommender) gave me a copy of THRIVE – ‘The third metric to redefining success and creating a happier life’ by Arianna Huffington a few years ago now and said “This is a game changer” and it was, largely because it 100% supported the conscious choices that I had made to get off the path well travelled, to define a much sparklier, happier and more fulfilling path of my own. This woman spoke my language – and she was none other than THE Arianna Huffington aka original boss lady.
Arianna touched a nerve and I instantly fell in love with her mind, her heart and her purpose. So you can imagine my delight when my friend Maria Mesaric told me that she had met Arianna and was bringing her Thrive program to Australia. She then asked if I would be interested in being the MC for the events in Sydney, Melbourne and the Gold Coast – it was a no brainer. I am so thrilled to be a part of this game changing and life changing program because of all of the wondrous key take outs I had from Arianna’s book myself!
If you haven’t had a chance to read it, here are my key take outs:
- Redefine success – stop thinking money + power all the time!
- Take control of your life!
- Meditate every day
- Find rhythms and rituals to support your wellbeing
- You have wisdom too, listen to your intuition people!
- WONDER – it is everywhere, tune in.
- Give and you’ll feel good.
- Stop. Unplug. Unwind.
- Put your wellbeing first.
I look forward to exploring the 4 pillars of the Thrive Program: Wisdom, Wellbeing, Wonder and Giving in the most amazing 1 day program facilitated by Arianna’s sister Agapi Stassinopoulos, Joe Hubbard and with some incredibly inspiring panelists including Libby Babet, Lisa Messenger and Christie Whitehill in Sydney! #dreamscometrue
