Who I am and why I am here was one big question I was dealing with for the last year and the reason I stopped blogging. I was going through my own personal journey to discover myself and my true soul’s purpose. Now, I have some big news: I recently became a certified Health and Life Coach and specialise in creative people like you and me. Going forward I am going to share tips and stories which helped me to find my purpose in life and living a life which is in line with my creative personality. My new creativity blog is born, and I am looking forward to having you creative folks on board.
Why a Health and Life Coach Why Now?
I can say I am feeling content and fulfilled with my life right now. I found my purpose, but that has not always been like this. It took me years to find out who I truly am.
How it all began
I was born and raised in Germany and moved to Australia in 2007. That’s where my journey began to discover myself. I was working as an auditor in big corporations. I always thought that was my career and I made my parents happy. However, it never made me happy. Something was missing, but I couldn’t tell what it was. I blamed the long working hours and the company.
In 2010 I changed to a bigger corporation, and my life went downwards. My health suffered. I was stressed like never before, always tired even though I slept for 7-8 hours each night. Going to dancing schools or gym was not an option any longer because I had no energy to move. I worked to at least midnight every night even on weekends. My life was feeling like hell to me. I gained weight and felt horrible; I couldn’t look into the mirror any longer. The person I saw in the mirror was not me. What happened?
My turning point
Luckily, my employer sent me to a leadership seminar, which was about life and our values. I realised that the life I lived was not the life I imagined to have and was not even in line with my values. It was time to stop living a life to please others but to step into my own personal power and change my life.
First, I had to get into a healthy state. From that day on, I signed up for dancing classes, left work early and went to the gym. It felt good. My food choices were healthy, but now I paid more attention to the amount of sugar I ate. We sometimes don’t realise how much sugar is hidden in everything we eat. My energy level doubled, and I never felt that healthy and sexy. My stress level reduced significantly, and I was more productive at work. In fact, I could prove with numbers that I managed to complete more work in fewer hours.
Now, this sounds like I made it? No, not yet. This was just the beginning. I gained clarity on what I liked doing. I bought a DSLR and signed up for a photography course, taught myself a lot about photography and travelled around the world whenever I could get enough leave.
Something had changed in me during that time. My values became clearer to me. I faced the real world I was still living in. Even though I was on top of my work, people were not happy with me leaving work early. I felt this internal block to keep travelling along this path, and I was wondering what was wrong with me. Well, nothing was wrong with me, I just didn’t live my truth. I was trying to fit in to please others but not myself.
Over the years I nourished myself and read a lot of self-help and spiritual books, did meditations on a regular basis. That helped me to learn more about myself and who I truly am.
It didn’t take me long to discover that I just worked differently as a creative person. You can’t put a creative person in a 9-5 job without giving them time to pursue their passion. Creative people will die from the inside. I met so many creative people in my life, and they all face the same challenges, most people don’t even realise that they are creative. It became evident to me that my mission is to help creative people to gain back their health and see clearly what they are made of. I love to help them to unlock their own personal power, to change their disempowering into empowering beliefs and be the creative person they are born to be.
My life now
I am now a certified Health and Life Coach. This is my calling, and I put all of my passion into my work as a coach.
