“From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king.” – J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring For those who know me, they know my story of a physically illness being the catalyst to my path to personal and professional growth. Hitting my low point allowed me to take action and to make the changes in my life that were needed. It was difficult and I don’t wish it on anyone, but I wouldn’t be the person I am today without going through what I did. There are so many of us out there; exhausted, dissatisfied, doing for others and not taking care of ourselves. We push ourselves through the day making something or someone more important than our wellbeing – until our bodies tell us they have had enough. Or perhaps we hit a certain age that makes us reflect where we have been and where we are headed – and we are disappointed. Dreams we had have disappeared. Results we had hoped for did not materialize. We feel stuck.
But there is hope. From the ashes the true happy, joyful, peaceful, successful us can arise. I am joined by Regina Essel who too has felt physically ill, emotionally drained, and feeling as if her best days were past – that the future was all downhill. And here how she turned it around. Learn how she not only regained her physical and emotional health, but used it to propel her to help other women to empower their personal and professional lives. Regina believes that women can and should have it all – and on their own terms.
