Everyone has a goal in life, and sometimes that goal is attainable and other times it is not, especially when we are young. I remember that I wanted to be a legal secretary, I don’t know why, I just really, really wanted to have that career. Throughout school I learned about computers and touch typing and was really good at it and believe it or not! One of my first jobs was as a legal secretary, my dream job was not so dreamy, and within three months my dream faded – I could not get away from it fast enough.
I was then drawn to health as I’m a giver and prone to always helping others. It was then I found two great casual jobs in allied health – this was such a great time in my life, I did it for so long. I could hop between the two roles and always feel as though I was doing such great things by helping others.
Yoga teaching came into my life when so many things happened, I was so depressed, tired, in pain and so fed up with a long trail of events (6 car accidents all due to driver distraction from others). I wanted nothing more than to be pain free, walking, and to be happy with life. I wanted what I had before! To be happy and helping others.
It was a long journey being able to learn yoga with my body not cooperating all the time, with so many challenges along the way, yet the practice of it really helped me to become the person that I am today. I love to help people and be the giver, but yoga helped me to allow to receive as well. This is what I was missing for so long. I didn’t know how to do this – now I master it.
If someone had told me 20 years ago that I would be a yoga teacher, psychic/medium, live through so much and still be smiling – I would never have believed them.
Life has its ups and downs, but you have to go with the flow. If you try to make things happen you will be met with resistance, and/or it won’t happen because it’s not meant to be.
I don’t know why I had to be placed in so many situations (because I LOVED my job) and for so much to change, but I thank the universe every day for the fantastic life that I live with my family, yoga, friends, students, the laughter and happiness, no matter what’s happening, I always have this.
So even though my dream job did not work out, I’m where I am meant to be, teaching, mentoring, and inspiring others, all the while healing and helping myself.
