I embarked on a wellness journey about three years ago, after battling years of anxiety.

“Stop Believing The Lies About Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant To Be” – by Rachel Hollis
There was a distinct moment I remember when I recognized a desperate need for change. It was when I knew that I had to make my health a priority. During that time, I rediscovered my love for books and reading and started carving time out of my days for reading everything I could get my hands on. Reading quickly became my lifeline. I spent hours just breathing in every single inspiring word that was placed before me. My genre of choice was non-fiction/inspirational books written by women who were often very similar to myself.
