I was living a life that others thought I should have. Now, I'm so lit up by my own passion for life.
I was in a career that I sort of liked but it wasn’t everything for me. So, I was living a life that others thought I should have. Because part of me felt like there was something wrong with me, and I had to appease my parents, and, so, I would do things to not ruffle the feathers. I would never put myself out there. I would never put myself in the spotlight. I devalued myself a lot and devalued my power.
In OM, I’ve cultivated my own power and my own rightness with myself. It’s been this journey of going into the deepest, darkest fears in my entire life, going through that mess – all of those fears about my value and my worth. On the other side is this huge passion and joy and love for life. Now, with OM, it’s like, it is something that can take me and take people to places that you’ve never imagined. I have the relationships that I want. I have the friendships that I want. I have the career I want. I have a relationship with my desire that’s so tapped in that it literally wakes me up. I’m awake with my desire. It’s like a fire that burns within me. It’s just released a lot of that shame, and now it’s been replaced with a deep, soft, yearning just to be me.
