Hi, I'm Ana. Nice to Meet You!

Before we get into all the blogging awesomeness, I would like to share a little bit about myself and why I started this blog in the first place.  

I have been a lot of things in my life so far! I have been a college student, a gymnastics teacher, an arborist, a farmer, and more recently a circus arts teacher and performer. I have also been severely depressed, co-dependent, lost, overwhelmed, hopeless, anxious and AFRAID of never finding happiness, freedom, fulfillment or a sense of purpose. 

Today I am a writer, a friend and a guide.

Today I choose to be happy and free and abundant!

(And I will tell you a secret... it is so much more awesome than I could have imagined, and it is also a practice that I work on every day!)

 

 I also know how it feels to…

  • want to be happy with all my being and have no idea how to get there.
  • feel unworthy and unlovable.
  • feel powerless
  • be afraid to set boundaries.
  • be afraid to make mistakes.
  • feel nothing but blank emptiness because feeling was too painful. 
  • suppress all of my emotions in order to fit into society.
  • be who I thought everyone wanted me to be, instead of just being me.
  • sink into that ceaseless spiral of negative self talk, self doubt and self loathing.
  • believe that loving myself was impossible.
  • not want to get out of bed in the morning, because…”what’s the point”.

I did not make this transformation without help. Sometimes, we just need someone to help us remove the blocks we have created between ourselves and love. I found my help in books, therapists, and most importantly of all, my daily human relationships. The people we interact with on a daily basis are the mirrors to our true selves and they are the KEY to helping us recognize and remove our blocks to love.

Now I want to give back! 

I hope that through my blog and free resources I will be able to share with you all the crazy stories and beautiful lessons that have transformed my life.

I have done a lot of inner work, learned a lot of really hard lessons and have found a lot of amazing tools that have helped me overcome my depression and anxiety and live a life that is beautiful and full of joy. I want to give these tools to you so that we can keep growing and learning and loving together.
