THE CLOSE OF A CHAPTER…

Pic : Dennis Stock for Magnum Photos

Well this feels scary as hell and also more exciting than I ever could have imagined. This year has been a wild ride for me but the journey made me stronger and more clear than ever before.   So I’m taking the leap, leaving my comfy and all-I’ve-ever-known-job so that I can focus 100% on my family and serving YOU through Raw Beauty Talks.

For the last 16 years I’ve had the incredible opportunity to work alongside my parents in their business, Treloar Physiotherapy Clinic where my primary focus was building and managing a Pilates studio. It is a beautiful space filled with even more beautiful people and it’s very aligned with my core values of health and wellness but as time went on my heart has been more and more pulled towards the work I’m doing with Raw Beauty Talks.

I’ve been trying to balance it all – a newborn baby, a toddler, the pilates studio, Raw, family, friends, health, a renovation etc. – but couldn’t (duh – I’m tired just writing that out!).  My health took a major backseat for far too long and as always it eventually caught up to me. I started feeling like I was only doing “ok” at everything I was doing. I was spread way too thin, burned out, got hit with a nasty case of postpartum anxiety and panic attacks and have spent the rest of the year in recovery-mode.

In most cases this would be considered a major bummer.  And it was. But in that deep, dark space I found some gold. And now I stand more connected, conscious and clear than ever before.

I was forced to take inventory of where my time was being spent, what was really filling me up, what I needed to create extra space for (meditating, exercising, eating properly) and to look at how I could manage things from a more practical standpoint.  I journaled. I sat in quiet. I cried. I let others take care of me. I listened to my body. I went on vacation and didn’t open my computer.

Removing my safety net is scary but I also know from experience that the best things in life are on the other side of fear.  When your intuition is speaking loudly and the facts align to support it, it’s time to jump. I’d like to take a moment to thank my amazing husband for making sacrifices on his end to give me this opportunity.  I will be forever grateful to you for your unconditional support of my wild dreams and “can’t wait” timelines.

So here I am.  All yours. Choosing to believe in myself.  Designing a life that aligns with my values.  Focusing on abundance and my own resilience to create limitless opportunity. No matter what happens, I trust that the flight will be way more fun than sitting on the sidelines wondering “What if?”.

Let’s do this.

WHY YOUR SYMPTOMS, CRAVINGS & BAD HABITS ARE A GOOD THING!

By: Erin Treloar

What if I told you those cravings that are haunting you or that stomach ache or your out-of-control eating habits are actually a really good thing?

When we are in pain, craving things we wish we wouldn’t (hello chocolate, sugar and caffeine) or finding it hard to break unhealthy cycles like overeating or negative self talk it’s really hard not to get frustrated with our body. It feels like we’re not in control and thoughts like, “If only I wasn’t so…” or “why can’t I be more like…” or “I hate that I feel this way.” start to sneak in.

The symptoms, cravings and behaviours you are experiencing all have a positive intention for you.  They’re not bad at all and in fact, they’re just trying to help you even if it doesn’t feel like they are.  (more…)
