NOT WHERE YOU “THOUGHT” YOU WOULD BE
Often we think we have it all figured out. We think that at a certain age or a certain stage we should have accomplished x, y, and z. In this article, I show you how I turned 40 years old and thought that I was a failure, however, once I gave myself the permission to trust MY DESIRES I realized what I really wanted.

I HAD IT ALL FIGURED OUT
This year I entered into my 43rd year of life. I am 43 years young.
25 years ago I had my life planned. I told my family I would be married to my college sweetheart at 23… he didn’t exist yet but I was foreshadowing…
I told them that he and I would have children when I was age 25 because of course, we would want 2 years of married life and boom pregnancy would just come.
Oh and I told them I would be some kind of corporate executive before the age of 30.
Yep, as an 18-year-old adult, I had it all figured out before I stepped foot into Tulane University…
Then life happened…
Today, I am 43 years old. I am Single and I have left the Corporate Executive World. I am in the second year of working Full Time in my Transformation Business. No Husband. No Children.
4 years ago I made myself wrong for this.
I thought I failed at life..I dreaded conversations with friends where the first thing they would ask would be “Who was I dating?” or “Was I on any dating apps.”
I was turning 40 and I was numb. I didn’t know how to feel about where I was in life. I felt disconnected because the life that I was conditioned to want wasn’t going to happen the way it was “supposed to happen.”
I allowed myself to feel that my life didn’t matter because I didn’t have any children. I felt invisible because I wasn’t sharing my life with a partner. I felt wrong for not being where everyone else thought I should be.
WHAT DID I REALLY WANT
Finally, I realized that this was NO BUENO!
I was making myself wrong for the life I was living.
I’m a go-getter. If I REALLY WANT something, I GO GET IT. There isn’t anything that I REALLY REALLY wanted, that I didn’t ALIGN WITH and MANIFEST IN MY LIFE.
It was time for me to connect with what I REALLY wanted.
Did I want to be married or was marriage just something that I was expected to want?
Did I really want children or was I wanting what someone else wanted for me?
WHAT DID I WANT
I DECIDED TO shut out the noise.
I NO LONGER CARED what someone else thought about my life.
I GAVE NO MORE F**KS to what anyone thought but me.
In that quiet moment I asked myself if I could have, be and do ANYTHING that I wanted in MY LIFE without regards to anyone else what would I want?
When I allowed myself to tap into what I truly wanted, I realized it was NEVER the 2.2 Kids or the Husband.
I desired to live life MY WAY.
I wanted to forge MY OWN path (with the help of The Divine of course).
I felt guided to stay open to all that God was laying on my path.
NEWSFLASH THAT I FINALLY ALLOWED MYSELF TO BECOME AWARE OF…
My life is freaking awesome.
- I left Corporate to do what I was BORN to DO.
- I am traveling the world.
- I have more freedom and flexibility than I ever dreamed of.
- I am living with the most important human in my life – my sister and we were having a ball.
- I created a baby and she is my business. My baby was POSITIVELY impacting thousands of humans and would impact millions.
- I am an example for WOMEN everywhere that they can live their own life the way they want to!
MY LIFE is MY CO-CREATION with God.
The life that I am LIVING is EXACTLY RIGHT.
I am EXACTLY ON MY PATH and living EXACTLY WHAT I AM ALIGNED WITH.
It is COMPLETELY OK that I don’t know EXACTLY where I am going.
I do not have it PLANNED OUT as I did at 18 years old.
I know that I get to Choose from my SOUL.
I get to TRUST that God is in me and my TRUE SOUL DESIRES are SAFE GUIDANCE as to my next steps.

DO YOU FIND YOURSELF FEELING PRESSURE TO BE, HAVE OR DO SOMETHING?
7 STEPS TO TAPPING INTO WHAT YOU TRULY DESIRE
1) TAKE A MOMENT
Set aside 30 minutes for yourself. Commit to taking this moment for YOURSELF and no one else.
2) SIT QUIET
Get comfortable in a place where you won’t be disturbed. Sit with your back straight. Close your eyes.
3) CONNECT WITH YOUR HEART
Connecting back to your present moment can be as easy as taking the following steps:
- Without judging how you feel as bad or wrong, take a moment to just BE.
- Place your hands on your heart
- Direct your focus on your heart. Where your attention goes, energy flows. Focus on your heart for 60 seconds
- Breathe deeply for 60 seconds while focused on your heart. You can picture your breath flowing in and out of your heart.
- For the next 60 seconds start to focus on one thing you are grateful for in this moment. Fiercely focus on this one thing. It doesn’t matter what it is. It can be anything including your pet, the home you live in, your child, your lover or anything that you deeply, deeply appreciate having in your life. Whatever you choose, make sure you deeply appreciate it and you can focus on it for 60 seconds.
- For another 60 seconds, continue to focus on gratitude. Say or think over and over Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. Feel this gratitude throughout your heart.
- For the final 60 seconds focus on radiating this feeling throughout your body. From your heart to all cells in your body. Then focus this energy outside of your body. Picture this appreciation overflowing from your body and aura to space outside of you, filling up the room or car or park and then filling up your neighborhood, city and then the earth until you have expanded it out to the entire universe.
- Notice the shift in your energy and be thankful.

4) INVITE AWARENESS
Ask Guidance (God, The Universe, Source Energy) for awareness.
Say that you are open to see what you haven’t wanted to see.
Tell Guidance that you are ready to acknowledge what you have been avoiding.
5) FEEL WHAT YOU ARE FEELING IN YOUR BODY
With your eyes closed, feel your body fully. Feel whatever emotion you are feeling and feel where it is in your body.
6) WHAT DO YOU DESIRE
Now ask yourself… What do I really want? What do I desire right now?
7) TELL YOURSELF THE TRUTH
Tell the truth to yourself! Sometimes it is the hardest thing to actually tell YOURSELF the TRUTH about what you REALLY WANT.
Give yourself permission to NOT CARE what anyone else thinks right now.
Allow yourself to know what you really desire.
No more checking boxes or living your life how you are expected to live it.
You get to choose what works for you…Your Desires come from The Divine.
Desire means “of the Sire” or “of the Father/Creator”
Your desires are birthed within you because there is a YOU WHO IS LIVING THE LIFE doing EXACTLY what you desire to do.

You have asked Universe (God, Source) for what you desire. You have been meditating, journaling and creating so many vision boards that every magazine you own is destroyed. But you still haven't manifested it. You are sitting there still wondering what the heck is going on.
==>You are super confused and keep asking what they heck is going on?
==> What are you doing wrong?
==> What is the missing piece?
Well I have news for you. All that you have been looking for…
The only reason you haven’t manifested what you desire is that you are not aligned with it.
I REPEAT: The only reason you haven’t manifested what you desire is that you ARE NOT ALIGNED WITH IT… not yet.
Often with my clients, I notice that they “think” they are aligned but they truly aren’t. After a conversation about what they desire and their why, feelings and all the other goodness, it is clear that they aren’t aligned with it. In fact they are aligned with not having it which is why what they want isn’t there.
THIS MONTH I AM OPENING TIME IN MY CALENDAR
I am offering Complimentary 30 min Alignment Assessment sessions.
==>Free 30 Minute Alignment Assessment <==
During this 30 minute call, you will talk about the one thing you have been trying to manifest and I will assess where you are. And as you know awareness is everything!!
