Say Yes To New Adventures; My New Adventure
If you know me, (and well even if you don't, you will learn fast) I love helping people. I have always had this desire inside of me that I needed to save the world. After receiving my endometriosis diagnosis in 2017, that desire inside of me to help people became 20x stronger. The way health care treats women and the way I was treated, is just NOT ok. So, I decided to fight. Letting my voice be heard, sharing my story and reaching out to others struggling, became my main focus.
Now, if you are someone struggling with a chronic illness, of any sort, you know life can be difficult. Work, friendships, relationships, social outings are all affected. When I was first diagnosed, I was not in a good place. I was at a job where I felt they didn't understand me. It felt like an unhealthy environment where I would never grow. I was using my skills and talents to help someone else grow. And I got tired of it. And throw in the mix of never feeling well, it was just time to move on.
So I made a huge decision. I decided to build my own business. Joining a network marketing company with my college best friend seemed like the best idea. Long story short, it wasn't. And it had nothing to do with my friend. I loved being able to work with her. It was the company itself. The company was nothing they promised to be and I felt as though I was building a business of lies. How could I help others and myself, if I didn't believe in what I was doing? I failed miserably. My mindset of saving the world quickly turned to, maybe I am not cut out to do just that. Maybe I was only cut out to be sick.<
