My initial reaction when asked, “Tell me about yourself…” – I freeze.
I find talking about myself awkward and most of the time, I really have no idea where to start. My follow-up is usually, “What do you want to know?” But, since that doesn’t really apply here, this is my best attempt at summarizing who I am …
I am a daughter, a sister, a sponsor, a sponsee, a friend, a fitness coach, a business owner, and a recovering alcoholic and addict. (I am also a lot more than those things, but you’ll just have to listen to the live-stream to get into all of that).
I was born and raised on Staten Island. I’m 27 years old. My birthday is Valentine’s Day. And, my sobriety date is March 25th, 2016.
I read a lot of books. Lift a lot of weights. And eat a lot of pancakes.
I run my own business and I legitimately can’t think of anything in this world more fulfilling that being able to be a part of someone’s transformation. The fact that THAT is what I do for a living, gives me all the feels. Every. Single. One.
I get to live a life that is beyond anything I could ever conceptualize – let alone imagine for myself. I still don’t really understand how it all keeps happening. All I do know is that the more I trust, love, give, and show up, the better it gets.
