Find your voiceSpeak your truthLive authentically
For years, I went through life the way most do…burning the wick at both ends each day, only to wake up and do it again. I was pulled in many directions: the demands of being a stay-at-home parent, the desire to do more with my life, my disconnected marriage, and not feeling well physically. I did everything the way I was supposed to, according to the expectations of society and others, and tried to convince myself that I was happy. I kept trying to make it work. I put long hours into managing my household, entered into counseling with my spouse, and attempted to hold everything together.
I then experienced two things that, as painful as they were, became catalysts to my realization that I could take control of my life. The first was the heartbreaking loss of a child while in the third trimester. As a religious person who grew up going to church every Sunday, I struggled. I spent many nights trying to make sense of this. I learned to make peace with the loss and grief through recognition on a spiritual level. Although I didn’t realize it at the time, this was the beginning of a new way of life for me.
The second was accepting that my marriage was not the best relationship for myself and my husband. We were great business partners and both worked hard, but realized our marriage would never leave both of us fulfilled. I think we both knew it years earlier but subconsciously blocked it out. We had different coping mechanisms and were doing what we needed to do to cause the least amount of disruption for the kids. At some point, we realized we weren’t doing them any favors by giving them this template for marriage. Once I overcame my fears, I made a decision that allowed us both to step into a life that honored who we were as individuals. We managed our divorce amicably. I love that we’ve found a new balance in our lives; one that enables us to work together as the best team for our children and families.
Following this, I found myself contemplating my life and the direction I wanted to take. I always felt the pull to do something grander, but wasn’t quite sure what. As much as I love taking care of my four children, I’ve always had a deep desire to make a broader impact in the world. I spent time reflecting on my life experiences and started to see how they all played a major role in helping me find my purpose.
When I realized so many people were struggling with the same issues, it became clear what I wanted to do. I enrolled in a life coaching course with the mission of helping to empower others to create a reality that embodies who they are and what they want for their lives.
As I stepped into my reality and lived my purpose, something amazing happened. Our logical minds tell us that taking on more responsibilities (now, as a single parent) will leave us feeling more depleted, but the opposite occurred. I feel stronger and more vibrant than ever before. When we align ourselves with our purpose, we become untethered and energized, and our work flows effortlessly.
I realized I spent the first half of my life not making conscious choices, and have embraced a holistic approach to living, including health and wellness, personal growth and development, and spirituality. I’ve begun writing a book. As I made these changes and stepped into my truth, I found that everything started to unfold organically. I was finally living as the Pam I had always desired to be. Since embracing my true self, I have manifested my hopes and dreams into my real life, and truly feel unleashed.
I founded Live Authentically to help others learn to find their voice, speak their truth and live authentically. As they go through the transformative events of life, I help them find their truths and the inner strength to live them fully. I help them see learning and knowledge in their challenges.
I encourage my clients to let go of the ideas that are holding them back. I coach them away from behaviors based on fear and doubt, and instill a healthy level of self-confidence and love, as well as a spiritual understanding of our world.
Every person is important and valuable, and everyone deserves to live their best and most fulfilled life. Live Authentically is dedicated to helping others find their own happiness, on their terms. There is no judgment.
