HOLA! I’m Georgea
The Joy Coach
I believe we all have something amazing inside of us that is just waiting to shine bright! I’ve been up and down and all around. Just like you, I’ve been ‘depressed’ (or thought I was), I have been on top of the moon and I have been somewhere in the middle. After years of this emotional roller coaster that I thought was just what us ‘sensitive’ people went through I realized that I am EVEN MORE than I ever thought I was. I have an amazing Divine Light Inside of me and it can do some friggen awesome things when I drop the fear of being ME and I just ‘Let it shine’.
I want to work with as many people as possible to help them BREAKTHROUGH and LIGHT UP THEIR LIVES! Because its feels SO GOOD to FEEL GOODD!
Our stories are all so similar. The details vary, the characters change, but the theme’s are consistent.
I know from personal experience the only way OUT is THROUGH.
We cannot repress, hide, shun, glitter or positive thinking ourselves out of pain.
We must face it, face our demons, face our fears and learn to accept the parts of ourselves that we love the least.
We must choose to sit in our emotions, to FEEL the whole spectrum of feelings and only after we allow ourselves to really be OK with NOT being OK we can be free.
My childhood and adolescence is speckled with what I have now come to know as ‘trauma.’From a young age I realized I had a choice, a choice to take responsibility for me, or to relive the legacy of my past.My journey into personal development and self-awareness started my sophomore year of college. I discovered books like, ‘The Alchemist’, and ‘Conversations with God’.
As I developed strategies to cope with my internal scars I hopped on board the ‘Positive Thinking’ train and elegantly used ‘positivity’ to repress and bury my shame, guilt, insecurity and self-loathing.
I felt good, I looked good, I won awards at work for, ‘Most positive employee of the year… and to some degree I did walk the walk. But somewhere deep inside I was still very sad, lonely and felt misunderstood and insecure. On the outside I was the life of the party, I was who you wanted to hang out with to have a good time, my positive attitude was infectious and exciting and as I was lighting the people up around me, but I was dying inside. I used drugs and alcohol to mask my insecurity, I used drugs and alcohol to facilitate the deep connections with peoples I so desired but was too ashamed to seek out sober. I was not a ‘miserable drunk,’ cross that idea out of your mind and think of something way cooler and more fun. I was a ‘party girl,’ a jet-setter,
I was ‘FREE’ but in reality I was a slave to my insecurity.
I maintained this identity until the birth of my eldest daughter. The story started unraveling a couple of years prior while working in the music and entertainment industry, but once she was born and my friends were all still partying and I was NOT, I questioned everything about myself. If I am not THAT, all that I had come to identify myself with for 15 years, then WHAT AM I? The question shook me to the core and lacking answers I fell deeper into what I now as an extended period of ‘clinical depression.’
So what changed? The trigger to get help was survival. I could not offer my two young children the love and support they needed (I truly wanted to give them) unless I got myself under control. Lack of sleep, post-partum hormones and depression lead me down a path of extreme volatility and rage, on good days I made it through the motions like a robot avoiding any and all social interaction with little to no awareness or care for my surroundings. On bad days my silence was interrupted only by outbursts of rage or tears. I was a visitor, an onlooker on my own life. I went to a doctor and got started taking anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medication.
I felt that medicating my suffering away was not the solution for me, (though I pass absolutely ZERO judgment on those who do choose that).
Six months later I got off the meds and with a clear head I wrote out my first goal planning exercise.
Having tasted ‘happiness’ I decided to never go back there again.
That goal exercise done in January 2017 catapulted a movement inside of myself that I am now dedicated to share with others.
