Episode 40: I Never Asked for This to Happen

Jan 16, 2023


Have you ever told yourself or someone else, “I never asked for this to happen”? Maybe you're going through a difficult time, and it should be pretty obvious that this is not your preferred path. In this episode, we answer the question... WHY.  If you never asked for this to happen, then why are you in this place? The answer is powerful, and I think it's gonna surprise you.

How do we get there? Well, let me show you.


 Together we unpack:

  • What do you do when a diagnosis comes out of the blue? (2:12)
  • How one woman recovered after hitting rock bottom three times. (4:15)
  • What does it mean to take responsibility for your health? (5:31)
  • Are you choosing to be sick? (9:24)

Deciding to start taking responsibility for the things you can control is a simple but difficult decision to make. If you are in that place where you are ready to set some boundaries with your inner bully...   if you are eager to raise your hand and be ready to do whatever it takes, I am here to be your coach, your mentor, and your champion who believes in you until you can believe in yourself. Your next step is to TAKE THIS FUN 2-MINUTE QUIZ and find out how much gratitude and grit you have.
