From Overwhelmed to Empowered: A Journey of Self-Discovery

Updated: Apr 6


Overwhelmed to Empowered

I found myself lost in the hustle and bustle of a 9 to 5 world, drowning in a sea of stress, anxiety, and discontent. Despite my best efforts, the grind of trading time for money left me feeling empty and unfulfilled, yearning for something more meaningful, more soul-stirring. It was a familiar tale, one shared by countless others trapped in the endless cycle of modern-day living. But deep within my heart, a flicker of hope remained, whispering tales of a different path, a path illuminated by passion, purpose, and the sweet scent of freedom.


And so, my journey began - a journey of self-discovery, healing, and transformation rooted in the ancient wisdom of the boho lifestyle. Rejecting the conventional path of medication and quick fixes, I embarked on a holistic quest to nourish my body, mind, and spirit from the inside out. It was a journey of trial and error, of stumbling blocks and breakthroughs, but through it all, I remained steadfast in my commitment to reclaiming my joy and embracing my true essence.


I started by fixing my mindset, recognizing that true abundance begins with a shift in perception. With each passing day, I immersed myself in the natural beauty of the world around me, finding solace in the gentle embrace of Mother Earth and the rhythmic flow of her cycles. Through art therapy, conscious stream writing, and the meditative practice of collage and vision boards, I unearthed hidden treasures buried deep within my soul, giving voice to dreams long forgotten and passions left unexplored.



But perhaps the most profound transformation came through my intimate dance with nature - through meditation, yoga, and the simple act of digging my hands into the rich, fertile soil of the earth. With each breath, each stretch, each step, I felt the weight of anxiety and overwhelm melt away, replaced by a profound sense of peace, presence, and profound connection.


And so, armed with the tools of self-discovery and the wisdom of the earth, I forged ahead, creating my Creative Daily self-care practice - a sacred ritual that honors my soul's deepest desires and fuels my journey toward a life of purpose and abundance.


Today, I stand tall as a beacon of light and inspiration, a living testament to the transformative power of embracing one's true self and walking boldly along the path of authenticity.


What unique perspective does my story give you?

It offers a glimpse into the transformative power of embracing creativity, nature, and holistic practices as a pathway to healing, abundance, and soul-aligned living. It reminds us that true success isn't measured by external accolades or material wealth, but by the depth of our connection to ourselves, to others, and to the world around us.

It is a celebration of the bohemian spirit - wild, free, and infinitely resilient - and a testament to the infinite possibilities that await when we dare to follow the whispers of our hearts.


If I stumbled upon $40 million tomorrow and still found myself drawn to a 40-hour workweek, you'd likely find me nestled amidst a garden of wildflowers, journal in hand, soaking up the gentle rays of the sun. For me, true wealth lies not in monetary riches but in the simple pleasures of creativity and connection with the earth.


In my boho world, every moment is a canvas waiting to be painted with the vibrant colors of nature, every page of my journal a sacred space for my soul to roam free. So, whether it's $40 or $40 million, my passion remains unchanged - to cultivate beauty, creativity, and joy in every corner of my existence, and to share that magic with the world around me.


Things that set my soul on fire and could captivate me for hours include:


  • Growing Flowers: There's something truly magical about nurturing delicate blooms and witnessing them flourish under the sun's warm embrace.



  • Nature: From the whispering of leaves in the wind to the symphony of birdsong at dawn, nature's beauty never fails to inspire awe and gratitude in my heart.



  • Meditation: In the stillness of the present moment, I find solace, clarity, and a deep sense of connection with the universe.



  • Journaling: My journal is my confidant, my sanctuary, and my canvas for self-expression. Through its pages, I explore the depths of my soul and document the beauty of everyday life.



  • Making Journals: Crafting handmade journals is not just a hobby; it's a sacred ritual that infuses each page with love, intention, and the promise of infinite possibilities.



  • Creating Collages: Like pieces of a puzzle, I delight in piecing together scraps of paper, photographs, and ephemera to create visual stories that speak to the heart.


  • Vision Boards: With scissors in hand and a heart full of dreams, I create vision boards that serve as a roadmap to my most cherished aspirations, guiding me toward a life of abundance and fulfillment.


  • Nature Walks: Whether in the garden or along wooded trails, there's nothing quite like the simple joy of immersing myself in the beauty of nature and allowing its healing energy to wash over me.



  • In the Studio: Amidst the paint splatters and the scent of freshly sharpened pencils, I lose myself in the creative process, channeling my emotions and experiences into works of art that resonate with the soul.



Each of these topics holds a special place in my heart, igniting my passion and fueling my journey toward a life filled with creativity, mindfulness, and boundless wonder.


With the spirit of a free-spirited wanderer and the wisdom of the earth beneath my feet, I am driven by an unyielding passion to extend a hand of compassion to my fellow boho beauties who find themselves tangled in the vines of overwhelm and stagnation.


Just as I have danced under the moonlight and woven my dreams into the fabric of reality, I am committed to guiding others along the winding path to liberation and self-discovery. Through the gentle whispers of the wind and the vibrant hues of the sunset, I offer a sanctuary where women can shed their burdens and embrace the wild magic within.


With every stroke of the paintbrush and every word penned in sacred journals, we will journey together through the labyrinth of the soul, unraveling the threads of doubt and fear to reveal the radiant essence that lies at our core. In the company of kindred spirits and the embrace of Mother Nature herself, we will rise like phoenixes from the ashes, reclaiming our power and rewriting the stories of our lives.


My passion is not merely to offer solace in times of need, but to inspire a revolution of the heart - to ignite the flames of creativity, courage, and authenticity in every woman who crosses my path. Together, we will weave a tapestry of sisterhood and empowerment, where each thread is a testament to the strength, resilience, and boundless beauty of the boho spirit.


So, let us embark on this journey together, my dear boho sisters, as we dance beneath the stars and paint the canvas of our dreams with the colors of our souls.


With a heart overflowing with empathy and a deep understanding of the struggles faced by overwhelmed and stuck ladies, I am driven by a burning passion to extend a helping hand to those in need. Just as I have experienced the transformative power of embracing creativity, mindfulness, and connection with nature, I am committed to sharing these gifts with others on their journey toward healing and empowerment with Self-coaching tools.

Through my own experiences and insights gained along the way, I aspire to create a safe and nurturing space where women can find solace, inspiration, and sisterhood. Whether through one-on-one coaching, workshops, or online resources, my mission is to guide others toward a life of joy, purpose, and fulfillment.


Together, we will embark on a journey of self-discovery and transformation, unraveling the layers of doubt and fear to reveal the radiant truth of our inherent worth and potential.




With each step forward, we will celebrate the victories, big and small, and lift each other up with compassion, understanding, and unwavering support.

My passion is not just to offer temporary relief from overwhelm, but to empower women to cultivate lasting change from within - to awaken their inner goddesses, reclaim their voices, and step boldly into the vibrant tapestry of life.


In the gentle rhythm of the earth's heartbeat, I've discovered the whisperings of my natural talents and strengths, each one a precious gift bestowed upon me by the universe itself.

At the heart of it all lies my innate ability to create - to breathe life into the mundane and transform it into something extraordinary. Whether it's through the stroke of a paintbrush, the dance of my fingertips on a keyboard, or the careful crafting of handmade journals, I find solace and joy in the act of bringing beauty into the world.


But beyond the realm of creation lies a deeper wellspring of empathy, a gift that allows me to see beyond the surface and connect with the hearts of others. With an open heart and a listening ear, I offer compassion and understanding to those in need, guiding them gently along their journey of self-discovery and healing.


In the tapestry of my soul, these talents and strengths intertwine like the vines of a wildflower garden, each one nourishing the other and contributing to the vibrant mosaic of my existence. And it is through the fusion of creativity, empathy, and an unwavering commitment to authenticity that I find my true purpose - to uplift, inspire, and empower others to embrace the fullness of who they are and step boldly into the light.


Those who know me best would likely sing praises of my personal and professional strengths, recognizing my unwavering commitment to authenticity, my boundless creativity, and my innate ability to connect deeply with others.


In my personal life, friends and loved ones commend me for my empathetic nature, always ready with a compassionate ear and a shoulder to lean on. They marvel at my talent for creating beauty out of chaos, whether it's through my stunning floral arrangements, my heartfelt journal entries, or the way I effortlessly transform everyday moments into magical memories.


Professionally, colleagues and peers applaud my visionary spirit and my knack for thinking outside the box. They admire my ability to lead with empathy and compassion, fostering a supportive and inclusive work environment where everyone feels valued and heard. They recognize my gift for innovation, constantly pushing the boundaries and challenging the status quo in pursuit of excellence.


And above all, my WHY - my burning passion to help other overwhelmed, stuck ladies like yourself - serves as your guiding light, illuminating the path forward and infusing every endeavor with purpose and meaning.


With my unwavering commitment to authenticity, my boundless creativity, and my deep empathy for others, I have the power to make a profound difference in the lives of those around me and create a world where every woman feels seen, heard, and empowered to shine her brightest light.

In the dance of life, amidst the swirling currents of family, business, and passion projects, my greatest accomplishments stand tall like ancient oaks rooted in the fertile soil of my soul.

Raising my three beautiful girls alongside my soulmate and husband, Troy, has been a journey of love, growth, and boundless joy. Together, we've nurtured their spirits, encouraged their dreams, and watched in awe as they blossomed into confident, compassionate young women ready to take on the world.


But our journey doesn't stop there. Together, Troy and I have run our swim school, a haven of laughter, learning, and empowerment where children dive into the waters of self-discovery, learning to set goals and chase their dreams with courage and determination.

Beyond the poolside adventures lies my sanctuary - my online business Creative Mindset Collective and Karuah Blooms, my flower farm, where I cultivate beauty, creativity, and abundance with every seed planted and every word penned.


Here, in this sacred space, I find my zone of genius - a harmonious blend of nurturing, creativity, and unwavering passion for helping others unlock their full potential.


What makes me unique and different?

It's the fusion of my bohemian spirit with my unwavering commitment to authenticity and empowerment. It's the way I infuse every aspect of my life - from raising my children to running our business and tending to my flower farm - with love, intention, and a touch of wild magic.


In a world filled with noise and distractions, I stand out as a beacon of light and inspiration, guiding others toward a life of purpose, joy, and boundless creativity. With every petal that blooms and every person that achieves their goals, I am reminded of the power of passion, perseverance, and the unwavering belief in the beauty of our dreams.
