I got married !
My relationship and now marriage with Luke has been very healing for me, it is more than a ceremony, a piece of paper, a change of name, it has helped me heal a younger part of me that didn't know what love, attention, affection or connection felt like.
Until Luke I didn't know what it was like to feel real joy and happiness. It was alien to me.
Now feels like the right time to share that with this big life change comes a change of focus in my business, something I have been working on behind the scenes during the last year. You may know me as a pilates teacher and although I am still passionate about pilates, I realised that this passion was not the same as my purpose.
I realised that my purpose was to share my stories ( because as you know I love to write ) about my healing journey, of caring for myself, of mattering to myself, of accepting myself, that led me to Luke, my marriage and the resulting love, joy and connection I now have in that relationship.
My hope is that it inspires you to do the same.
Turning my pain into purpose, healing my trauma, creating a more flexible nervous system.
My WHY is to break generational cycles for my daughter Georgia and grandaughter Marnie by leading the way so that they see from my example what is possible in life when you commit to this work.
Our children don't do what we say, they do what we do, and so although I can't change the mistakes of my past with my own daughter, I CAN change the future, it's never too late.
You might remember earlier this year I shared that I did some training, a Certificate in trauma and body based approaches with Suncrest Counselling and Somatic embodiment and regulation strategies for the nervous system, and as I continue my education in this area, I will be sharing more about that here and hope to give you some practical tools to explore.
In this vein I will be changing the name of my business pages on facebook and instagram to just my name ( I bought the domain for my new name before I got married ! ) I'm so excited to share this journey and change of direction with you, and wherever you are on the path that I have walked, know that I am with you every step of the way.
With so much love Emma
