I’ve spent nearly three decades in front of a TV camera. Because of that, people make certain assumptions about me. They think I must be really confident, always upbeat and a real go-getter.
But the truth is…
I spent many years sleepwalking through my life, numbing with food, wine and Netflix. Despite having a husband I love, two healthy sons and a TV career, I felt like I wasn’t “enough”. My life looked good on paper… I had all the trappings of what should be a happy life. But my limiting belief that I wasn’t enough affected every aspect of my existence… how I showed up in my marriage, as a mom, in relationships and at work.
I first had the thought that I wasn’t enough as a young girl. I had tics that I couldn’t control. I wasn’t like other kids my age. I know now that I have Tourette Syndrome. The shame I carried with me after my diagnosis was almost unbearable.
Negative self-talk and paralyzing anxiety were in the driver’s seat of my life. I didn’t like where they were taking me.
So I went to church. I doubled down on therapy appointments. And I learned to coach myself.
Self-loathing, toxic people and unfulfilling work gave way to meaningful friendships, deeper love for myself and others, blossoming confidence and richer experiences. I learned what it takes to be fully present in my life.
I want this for you, too. I want you to live a life that doesn’t just look good on social media but one that is truly full of joy and energy and love and intention.
