Life Lessons from the 'Emotional One'
Hi, I’m Christine. I teach women how to ditch the fear and overwhelm so that they can live more joyful lives.
In 2013 I had recently gone back to work after being home with my children for several years and was overwhelmed, my marriage was rocky, and I didn’t like the person looking back at me in the mirror. Dramatic change seemed impossible or terrifying, depending on the day, so I just kept telling myself life would get better, someday.
When things came to a head in my marriage, I realized that whether or not the union survived, I needed to find myself again.
Not long after that realization, I found EFT (tapping), a mindfulness practice that helps foster a mind/body connection and reduce stress and anxiety. It changed my life and the way I saw myself forever.
Growing up I was the “sensitive one” or the “emotional one”. To my family that was just who I was. To me, it meant that there was something wrong with me. I didn’t think I was very strong, resilient, or interesting, and kept myself in the shadows a lot of the time. I also stayed away from conflict by swallowing my feelings because I thought I was lucky to be in the room.
As I began doing the work of self discovery, I began to realize that I was so much stronger than I had ever given myself credit for. Even though it was hard, I was able to leave my marriage and raise my daughters largely on my own. I learned how to create joyful moments in my life each day. Over time, I began to see myself as a person with a lot to offer the world. (Just like you.)
In 2018, I became certified as an EFT practitioner and was diagnosed with breast cancer a week later, while also supporting one of my children through a life threatening illness. Honestly, I was an emotional mess, but I knew that I had to be there for my child. EFT helped me find my inner strength and resilience. I was able to reduce my stress level significantly so that I could process my feelings and cultivate a positive mindset. That shift allowed me to heal from my treatment quickly and without a great deal of physical or emotional pain so that I could focus on helping my daughter get well.
Now, I am living the life I want to live. I feel lighter and happier. I like the woman who looks back at me in the mirror and am proud of everything I have accomplished. My children are doing well, I’m in a healthy and happy relationship and I'm building a business that helps other women on their journeys.
