At 29 years old, after a decade of alcohol, drugs and dance music, I faced one of the toughest decisions of my young life — at the pace I was going, I really believed I would not reach my 40th birthday so I had to change my ways. And I had to do it quickly.
For the last 10+ years, I have repeatedly jumped with both feet into the unknown of self-discovery — from self-ignorance to self-acceptance — to learn how to BE and accept myself fully, to live the best life I could have imagined for myself.
I am a teacher so I teach what I know. I do this out of Love — it’s always been about sharing what I’ve learned and trying to inspire others to find their own Self, understand it and finally accept it fully.
“Putting yourself first is not selfish. Quite the opposite. You must put your happiness and health first before you can be of help to any one else.”
— Simon Sinek
Looking at the rising sun on an early morning, I sometimes ask myself “Who am I to be healthy, to thrive, to inspire?”
It is then that the quiet whisper of my soul replies “Who are you not to?”
And that is what has been driving me for the past decade — studying neuroscience, psychology, biology, and everything else related to growth, challenging myself to reach and surpass my personal and professional limits, and investing all I got each and every day — hoping to give back and contribute enough to, maybe, touch another life.
I have failed far more than I have succeeded in my life. And yet again, every morning, I look at the rising sun and I am deeply thankful to have another day to serve.
