Welcome to To Believe To Create. I own and operate a self-help company. I offer life coaching and counseling services, as well as my personal blog where I expose my own inner thoughts. I write about how I cope and manage my own personal fears and insecurities in order to live the best version of myself. I expose just how human I am.
I hope by exposing my flaws and imperfections others become empowered to share theirs as well. I struggled for many years living in the realm of never being good enough and hope to help others to embrace who they are and find they are in fact ENOUGH. I hated looking at the person starring back at me in the mirror. My soul was empty and my heart was cold. I did not trust others and I sure as hell didn’t trust myself. I was a victim to my life circumstances and lived in guilt, shame and remorse for years. I was officially hopeless in 2010 and threw my cards in.
I am fortunate that my cards were not accepted and I was shown a different way of life. I dug my heels in and began working on myself day in and day out. I read books, attended self help groups, participated in seminars, journaled, sought counseling, found prayer and meditation, and the list goes on.
Since that day, I’ve committed to facing my past, accepting my present and working for my future. I continue to push myself out of my comfort zone and into uncertainty. I have been through a lot over the last few decades as you will read. In my personal blog, I share about my recovery from drugs and alcohol, my attempt at suicide, and the struggles of motherhood to name a few. I remember feeling so alone and isolated. I believed no one out there knew how I felt. And because of that I suffered for longer then needed. I want others, including you, to know you are not alone in any of the things you think and feel.
Unfortunately, identifying and connecting is only half of the equation. You must take action in order to change. You must learn your thought process and identify what is working and what isn’t. Then you must clean house. I have the windex, paper towels and bleach ready when you are. I am ready to travel alongside you as you challenge your beliefs, dig deep within and create new and successful habits.
Will it be easy? Absolutely not. Will it be worth it? Abso-fucking-lutely! I will forewarn you, I just may use a curse word or two (or three). I am known for telling you how it is and saying the things you don’t want to hear, but need too. There is no better time than now. Time waits for no one. If you are anything like me, you wasted enough time wishing and hoping things were different. I am here to tell you they can be and will be, as long as you put in the work.
I believe I was put here to go through what I went through so I can help you and countless others. I have always found myself in some career of helping others. I have been a special education teacher, a behavior therapist, an at-risk youth counselor, a clinical therapist, an Assistant Program Director at a psych facility and a licensed social worker. I love to help others; it’s where I come alive. My goal is to make a dent in this world and to help as many people as I I can. I want to leave this world better than when I came in.
Life is so precious and unfortunately so short. By the time we start to get a grasp on it, it’s over. So why waste any more? Start living the life you were destined to live. You were not put on this earth to live a half ass-mediocre life. You were born to be awesome! And you are. You are fucking awesome!
So buckle up for the ride of your life! Your life starts NOW!
