My story.

 I am one of those people who “does it all” and am constantly asked, “how do I do it all”. I used to say “I have no idea” or “It’s all God”. Which the latter, yes of course it is God, but I now can answer “He has provided me a tool box along the way to get me where I am today and to prepare me to help others to do the same. 


When I transitioned from college to “the real world”, on paper I was living the dream. I was working at one of the top technology companies in the world making six-figures, getting paid to travel around the world, working remotely from anywhere (before COVID made work from home a thing), traveling around the world with my then boyfriend, living in Washington DC, and honestly doing whatever I pleased.


But internally, I was mentally crashing. I was trying to find myself and identify who I was without my college community around. At work I was constantly dealing with high-stress living in a scarcity mindset. I was making more money than I could’ve imagined and therefore put so many unrealistic expectations on myself to ensure that I did not lose this job. I was living in fear everyday without factual evidence that anything was going wrong. I was actually receiving promotions, raises, and great evaluations. But I was dealing with imposter syndrome thinking I wasn’t good enough and that I needed to work harder, especially being a young, black woman in tech corporate America. This led me to complete burnout and a place that I thought I would never return from - deep, dark depression, constant anxiety, overwhelming fear and unhappiness. I was functionally depressed so on the outside you couldn’t tell, but if you knew me you knew something wasn’t right. 


Something in me knew this wasn’t right and that this wasn’t the life I wanted to live. I knew if I wanted to find out what that life looked like I needed to take my life into my hands and change it. This was the beginning of what I now know was my wellness journey. I began going to therapy, which is when found out I was depressed. I started consistently doing yoga and meditating. I journaled everyday. I even started cooking more. I was doing all of the things, but wanting to see the results ASAP, you know instant gratification. Little did I know wellness is literally a journey, practice, and ultimately a lifestyle. It isn’t something that just fixes your life overnight, but it gives you the tools to really manage all the things in your life mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. 


Once I figured this out and surrendered to what was now my life and identity, my journey led me to a place where that great life on paper is actually now great in my mind, which makes it great in MY reality. It took about a decade to get here but all that practice I now want to share with you all.
