Three years this week since I finished chemotherapy. Three years three months since my mother lost her battle to cancer. It has been a long and turbulent road filled with anxiety, heartache, and uncertainty, but I am here today standing tall, strong and centered. Life does not always unfold how we imagine. There are elements of surprise and sometimes elements of shock. For instance, 2010 surprisingly started out to be the best year of my life. I was off to study abroad in Buenos Aires, where adventures, excitement and lust lay in the palm of my hand. But how quickly life can shift and turn. Not only was I smacked with a cancer diagnosis, ripped away from my study abroad experience, but worst of all, I lost the most precious person in my life at a time when I needed her most. When life interrupts you, there are two options. You can either crumble in the presence of turbulence or you can face the day practicing three components: Breath, Balance and Brilliance. I chose the latter. I chose to not let these life interruptions knock me down. Instead, I practiced mindfulness by centering myself with my breath. I maintained balance by incorporating physical activity into my daily regime to feel strong and stable. And most of all, I lived each day Brilliantly. Living Brilliantly means that I was connecting to my creative energy where I could stay open, honest and see the opportunity in everything. Living by these three principles, brought me to a place of inner peace, light and acceptance. I was able to finish my six months of chemotherapy, say goodbye to my mother, graduate college, move back to Argentina, find love, and solidify my passion to help others feel mentally and physically fit.
I am thrilled to announce the launch of my Life Coaching career. Celebrating my mission to help other young adults faced with life interruptions survive and thrive by practicing the principles of Breath, Balance, Brilliance. Ensuring that this survival packet can get anyone through the darkest of days.
