Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired of all your past ‘failures’ that seem to be holding you back?
Believe me, I hear you loud and clear! I’ve lived a lot of years listening to that mean ol inner critic, watching others thrive and suffering FOMO while I sat back being afraid to step out and make the changes in my life that would lead me into a space of joy and fulfillment.
I started my career as a nurse and loved nursing in so many ways. I always felt it was such a privilege to care for people in their times of pain and sickness, but I wanted more. I wanted more time with people and the ability to encourage and challenge them to take charge of their own health. This was not my primary role as a nurse. I kept at it because I felt stuck. I was afraid of leaving the career I studied both an undergraduate and postgraduate degree for, afraid of not having a plan beyond nursing and afraid of failing. I was stressed, super anxious and completely overwhelmed.
Then one day, I saw myself in a nurse who was close to retirement. This nurse had so many regrets about the things she wished she had done years ago.
I quit my career to pursue my passions, even though I didn’t quite have a plan just yet. I chose to ignore the inner critic who tried to tell me I was a failure and instead chose to have faith in the fact that I really thought God had a purpose for my life that involved health, but perhaps not nursing specifically.
Since then, I have worked in school marketing and communication, as a freelance writer/editor and currently as a redevelopment manager for a health course that aims to address the growing epidemic of Diabetes in the South Pacific. Alongside that I have been blogging and studying wellness coaching and workplace assessment and training- its been a wild ride!
A Bespectacled Life is the culmination of my passion, education and experience. Ultimately, it exists to provide a way to share my belief that people are amazing.
I want to cheer YOU on as you make positive and lasting change in your life!
I love to encourage others to be their best and it is an honour to now be able to pour my experience and skills into an area that I feel really fired up about!
You don’t have to be where you are today, tomorrow-you are capable of far more than you realise- I’m testament to that.
I’m not here to tell you that life will be easy when you chose to live this way- it won’t be. I’m not really into all that self-care ‘you are worth it’ stuff either. Personally, I’m a girl of faith and that means even though I won’t ever actually BE worthy, I am enough because He makes up all the (very big) areas I fail in. Because of Him, I can face the storms with a different kind of peace. I can leap off the edge with a different kind of confidence. I can take that step over the line in the sand and choose to live my life Bespectacled.
