"A letter to myself"
BY: Abby O'Neil
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
― Marianne Williamson
Dear person who is struggling just like I was,
Just under 3 years ago I found myself lost. I was struggling to be a mom of two young girls, a wife, and a full time career woman. My mental health was suffering as well as my physical health. I knew something had to change. You know the saying, "if nothing changes, nothing changes."? I had hit a point where I was desperate to make some changes, so one: I could fit back into my pre-pregnancy clothes, and two: live healthier so I would be able to keep up with the demands and chaos of every day life. These struggles lead me to a mentor and a lifestyle that would forever change my life- mind, body, and soul. Insert nutritional cleansing and Isagenix.
I started Isagenix to lose a few pounds. A few days in, I felt as if I had swallowed a rainbow. (really, it was just like that.) I did lose many inches and lots of sticky pounds, BUT what I gained was so much more. This lifestyle allowed me to ditch the fad diets forever. This lifestyle allowed me to implement a healthy routine for my entire family- even my hubby jumped on board. This lifestyle had me overflowing with energy and excitement for life. I was immersed in a culture of empowerment, support, and positive thinking. I caught myself dreaming bigger, creating more of a vision for myself, and truly loving life everyday. I started to really think about how one simple commitment to living healthier went on to completely transform my life- physical, spiritually, and financially.
My new love for wellness and my new full-of-energy healthier mind and body were now on a mission. My own wellness journey lead me to educating myself and changing my career path to help others the way I had been helped. I closed to doors to a nanny agency I had run for 10 years to become a full time lifestyle and wellness consultant. I felt this overwhelming obligation to help other people just like me: People who are struggling to find balance in their life, struggling to find healthy convenient lifestyles to keep up with the chaos of everyday life, struggling with the yo yo diet trap, and struggling with their overall self love and love for life.
For the past two years I have committed most of my time educating people on nutritional cleansing and the lifestyle Isagenix has to offer. I not only show people how to fuel their bodies correctly, I teach them about fueling their minds correctly, too. I am passionate about positive mindsets, living in a space of gratitude, and educating people on how to fill the nutritional gap in a world where most people are over fed and under nourished. I am very passionate about working with families, children, and supporting pregnant women.
I take a holistic approach to life and wellness. Life is not a one size fits all. Connection and community is important. Mindset is everything. Everyone has choices they can make every single day. Our choices either move us north or they move us south. I love to assist people in moving their life north.
Are you searching for a solution for more energy, healthy aging, weight loss, nutritional support, increased performance, or maybe you are looking for a way to own your own a business from home yet not compromise your commitment to raising your children at the same time? I assist my customers with all of these areas.
My life today is completely different than just under three years ago. I am a professional network marketer and creating a full time family. My husband has retired from corporate america and we are building a full time business and family together. We have two girls, we juggle between working from home, and now have a third baby on the way who will never know anything other than mom and dad being home full time. We live healthier, we all feel better, and we all dream bigger. I absolutely love being home assisting others in reaching their goals and living their best life. By title I am a lifestyle and wellness consultant, but what I really like to call myself is a dream giver. You want to live in a healthier body? I’m your girl. You want to create and healthier mind? I'm your girl. You want to embrace whats truly possible for you and create a life of endless possibility? I'm your girl.
We all have one life to live. Every day is a chance to love more, dream bigger, and contribute more. None of us get out of this life alive- doesn't it make sense we live life to the fullest?
I believe we are all doing the best with what we know. What if there is more for you, you just don't know yet?
Cheers to health, wealth, happiness and a lifetime full of abundance.
